“November 2, 2017

Dear DNAinfo and Gothamist Readers:

Today, I’ve made the difficult decision to discontinue publishing DNAinfo and Gothamist. [Ed. Note: of which Dcist is apart of when they sold in March.] Reaching this decision wasn’t easy, and it wasn’t one I made lightly.

I started DNAinfo in 2009 at a time when few people were investing in media companies. But I believed an opportunity existed to build a successful company that would report unbiased neighborhood news and information. These were stories that weren’t getting told, and because I believe people care deeply about the things that happen where they live and work, I thought we could build a large and loyal audience that advertisers would want to reach.

From a press release:

“Co-owners Jonathan and Laura Nelms announce the November 7 opening of D.C.’s first Georgian restaurant, Supra, at 1205 11th Street, NW. Chef Malkhaz Maisashvili, who brings over 25 years of experience as a chef in some of Georgia’s most acclaimed restaurants and at the Embassy of Georgia here in Washington, will serve his take on the country’s most beloved regional dishes.

Check out the full menu here.

Supra’s menu celebrates the full range of Georgian food – from heritage and rustic recipes to more refined dishes – with a modern interpretation by Chef Maisashvili. The menu is reflective of the culinary influences, from the Mediterranean and the Silk Road, that shape Georgian cuisine. Indigenous Georgian ingredients like walnuts and pomegranate permeate all sections of the menu from food to cocktails, alongside fresh herbs and unusual spices such as dried marigold petals and blue fenugreek, creating a flavor palate that is bold yet accessible.

“Dear PoPville,

As a refresher, we work with immigrant youth in detention centers in the area that are run by the Office of Refugee Resettlement. (It’s been in the news a bit lately, if it sounds familiar…) This month, we are focusing the spotlight on our Detained Children’s Program and the clients we serve through our Second Annual Noviembre de Niños: Stand With Immigrant Youth! We have highlighted accessible ways that people can help support our detained child clients, such as purchasing an item off our Amazon wish list that we will deliver to detained immigrant children who are far from family and friends.

The kids we work with would be so appreciative of your support!”

From a press release:

Initial Budget Reaction

‘It’s a sad day for transit riders when ‘we won’t proactively hurt you this year’ is considered a good headline for WMATA. Yet, that’s the spin dominating today’s brutal budget news. The fact is that the GM’s FY2019 budget proposal fails to address the most recent service cuts, fare hikes, inadequate safety measures, and daily disruptions that deny riders the safe, reliable, and affordable service they need to survive. It fails to offer those with transit choices any incentive to start riding again.

‘No fare hikes’ isn’t good enough when 11,000 riders signed petitions asking WMATA for a flat fare or free transfers between bus and rail. ‘No service cuts on the trains’ isn’t good enough when 11,000 riders signed petitions demanding shorter headways and restoration of evening and weekend service. ‘No evening or weekend service improvements’ isn’t good enough for small businesses trying to keep their doors open and their employees well-compensated.
