“Dear PoP,

I recently read on your site that the Red Derby might be building a roof deck – and that they had no a/c. Any update on either? I’d like to go there this weekend, but without either the deck or a/c I’d probably go somewhere else. Thanks!”

In June we had a quick update about the progress of Red Derby’s roof deck construction (3718 14th St. NW at Quincy). To answer the reader’s question – the air conditioning is working again!!! And the construction of the roof deck is progressing nicely. When I stopped in last weekend I was told that the roof deck is looking like a Sept. completion. But in the meantime the downstairs is open and air conditioned. You can even see the eventual steps to the roof deck:
