PoP Preview – Mockingbird Hill Opening this Friday in Shaw

1843 7th Street, NW

Back in February we learned of Derek Brown’s (Passenger, Columbia Room, Hogo) plans to open Mockingbird Hill in the renovated storefront at 1843 7th Street, NW. This is the sherry and ham bar. I was fortunate to be invited to a preview party and sip some sherries and taste some ham. And take some photos of course:

It’s a relatively narrow space dominated by a huge bar that runs nearly the length of the space. Though there was one table in the very back. When you visit, it’ll be important to remember that this is def. a bar and not a restaurant. Having said that, the hams were so freaking good.

To celebrate Karen’s promotion, we caught up with her to learn more about her time at Well-Paid Maids, the area’s only certified living-wage cleaning company.

 1. Why Well-Paid Maids?

Karen: I saw the company was paying a living wage and had great benefits. Also, they were very flexible with my schedule, especially since I have kids.

We precision roast high-quality beans sourced from small farms in Latin America and Africa that are owned and operated by women. We will make sure that your coffee is roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

The beans are grown on small farms that are part of a cooperative promoting gender equity and market access for women. This is a smooth and balanced coffee that is sure to please.

We also received coffee shipments that were delayed following the tragic collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. That includes the most recent harvest of La Morena coffee beans from Huehuetenango, Guatemala. We have plenty in stock, so that you can stock up! Rounding out our specialty coffee choices are fresh roasts from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia and Peru.
