Georgia and Upshur St, NW

The much anticipated project from the owner of Petworth Citizen, Crane & Turtle, Room 11, Upshur St. Books etc., Slim’s Diner, has launched their facebook page and gotten a lot of folks, me included, super stoked (thanks to all who sent emails):

“I am excited to launch our newest project. It should take us about 6 months to finish construction and we plan to open in the summer.

Look for frequent updates here and let us know if you have any suggestions. We hope that Slim’s Diner will be a gathering place for everyone in the neighborhood.

– Paul Ruppert, owner”

And holy cow do they have an awesome old photo, streetcar and all, of Georgia and Upshur back in the day:
