816 H Street, NE

“Dear PoPville,

With all the news about the return of the Christmas bar, and the success of Game of Thrones bar, I’m really surprised there hasn’t been more buzz about The Dark Side bar (Star Wars-themed) happening on H Street right now!”

Dark Side’s website says:

“Attention all space nerds, distant travelers, and creatures of the night. You are invited to explore the dark side of your city in a truly immersive galactic experience. Dark forces are taking over New York City, Washington DC, and Hollywood California for a very limited time. Come experience the power, fury and the truly macabre environment of The Dark Side Bar.

We will be hosting nightly events and parties including The intergalactic burlesque show featuring performers from many different planets. Themed dance and dj nights, trivia, alien speed dating and games of chance.

Our cocktail menu boasts 6 custom cocktails from different parts of the Galaxy that are sure to give you the feels.

Patrons are encouraged to come in costume to blend in but not required to do so. Walk ups are welcome but reservations are highly encouraged to guarantee admission. Reservation are $33 per person and include two of our signature custom cocktails per person. Walk ins will be $40 per person. We are offering a very creative and “Galaxy inspired” menu of small bites and sharing plates onsite. Fans can expect to see tentacles on sticks (soy bbq glazed octopus skewers) Bantha Fodder (vegan sushi egg rolls) and other interesting bites. The food will vary day to day as we attempt to keep the program interesting and truly galactic!

Book now before it’s too late, we have a good feeling about this!”

Anyone been yet?

And regarding this building – Frozen Tropics reports:

“At the moment Mythology’s 2nd floor lounge space is a Star Wars inspired pop up called The Darkside Bar, and the pop up is scheduled to stick around through January 15th. Once The Darkside Bar pop up concludes, Mythology’s colorful clouds and signature fries will head upstairs.

A fast casual concept called Clean Eatz will take over the 1st floor.”

You can see Clean Eatz’s menu here.

From an email:

“Next Tuesday we will be playing the cult classic “The Room” on the big screen projector. We will also be handing out free plastic spoons to our guests for throwing, which is the tradition among the film’s devotees — to throw spoons at the screen. Movies are starting at 8 now.

Of course this times up with the release of the James Franco directed “The Disaster Artist,” which is based on the making of film.”

“Dear PoPville,

Read this scary article about the potential economic impact of the Trump tax bill in the New York Times yesterday. Nobody ever mentions DC in these articles, but the situation here with local taxes is very similar to New York and California (high SALTs and high housing costs) Do you think you could post so people can comment? Maybe someone will allay my fears!”

It is also an economic dagger aimed at high-tax, high-cost and generally Democratic-leaning areas — most notably New York City and its neighbors.

The bill, if enacted into law, could send home prices tumbling 10 percent or more in parts of the New York area, according to one economic analysis. It could increase the regional tax burden, complicating companies’ efforts to attract skilled workers. It could make it harder for state and local governments to pay for upgrades to the transit system and other infrastructure. And it could force cuts in federal programs that help immigrants, the elderly and other low-income residents afford the region’s high cost of living.

Most significantly, the bil appearedl would eliminate the deduction for state and local income taxes, and would cap the deduction for property taxes at $10,000.

The following was written by PoPville contributor David McAuley, founder of Short Articles about Long Meetings.

A proposal to make on-street parking more difficult for non-residents brought local businesspeople and residents out to the meeting of Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2E/Georgetown Monday night (December 4).

ANC2E Chair Joe Gibbons characterized “the meat” of the proposal: for every local block that is part of the District’s Residential Permit Parking (RPP) program, one side of the street will be reserved for local residents and guests. The other side will be “for anybody”. As it stands now, any Ward Two resident with a permit can drive to Georgetown and enjoy the benefits of on-street parking under the RPP program.

The proposal brought local businesspeople out to oppose the plan, which they claimed would drive away customers. (more…)
