Dear PoP – Tune Inn Going Commercial?

A reader shares the word from FamousDC:

The Tune Inn, holder of the oldest liquor license in Washington, D.C. and celebrated for its gritty pretentiousness, recently re-branded itself after Food Network personality Guy Fieri following his April visit for the show “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

The reader sums it up succinctly, “This, to me, is kind of the death knell for the District that I knew and loved…”

Tune Inn came up numerous times when we recently discussed the most authentic dive bars in town. I’m beginning to regret my sub-question:

Are they Endangered?

For those feeling frustrated by this development if you find yourself up in Petworth you can still stop by and soak up some old school charm at the Hitching Post.

For the fans of Tune Inn – what do you guys think – is this the beginning of the end? Or if lines don’t form around the block after the reality show airs – then maybe they’ll go back to their roots?
