The liquor license placard for Tastemakers at 2800 10th Street, NE says:

I took a peek inside and though the space was still pretty rough the folks I spoke with said they were hoping to open early Fall. STAY TUNED.

I just wanted to share this incident that happened to me last week on the 4th of July as a warning for other bikers and drivers out there. I was heading back from a bike cruise around the national mall during the late afternoon around 7pm heading north up 11th street NW. I reached the point where the bike lane merges into the road a little north of the shaw skate park. At this point I heard someone honking at cars behind me, but was just ignoring it. Around S or T street an old tan minivan with VA tags (with the mountains on them) sped up to me with the window down. The young (probably late 20’s) African american man driving the van told me to “get the F**k outta the road with that Sh*t!!” and waved his hand at me. This was while I was riding in the bike lane on the right side with plenty of room for people to pass me.
Let me just say at this point I should have ignored him and got away from him. Instead I chose to confront him verbally since I was not in the wrong. (more…)

Was in Union Market yesterday and saw these posters for an event Edens is having. One of them has a Apple Store super-imposed on the side of the market. Have you heard anything about it?”
