Dear PoP – What’s Up With Rumberos?

“Dear PoP,

After the “success” of the outdoor tables over the summer (I only live around the corner so I’ve seen people out there on the sidewalk all summer) I thought maybe Rumberos had turned a corner. I walked by today on my way home from the gym a few minutes ago to see all the windows blocked up with white paper, like you would see during a building fit out.”

I walked by today and a neighbor and worker inside told me the place had closed. They were packing up all the tables. The neighbor was truly surprised because she said she had just seen folks outside this past weekend. Rumberos was located at 3345 14th St, NW in the Tivoli complex. Whenever we spoke of Rumberos in the past folks always had wildly different opinions. Some folks loved it and others hated it. I personally enjoyed it the few times I went but I wasn’t a regular. I am sad to see another empty storefront…

Will anyone miss them?

UPDATE Apparently they are not closing. A bit of a language barrier problem. Totally my fault. More details as they become available.
