From a press release:

“ANXO Cidery & Pintxos Bar and Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C. (PPMW) celebrate International Women’s Day with “A Wild Night: The Story of Basandere,” an evening of ciders, cocktails and women’s health initiatives on Thursday, March 8th from 7:00-9:00 PM at the ANXO Cidery & Pintxos Bar (300 Florida Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20001).

Founded with inspiration from Basque Country and a passion for cider, ANXO brings culinary and beverage delights to the District in a unique setting.

‘A Wild Night’ features Basandere, or ‘Wild Woman,’ a protector of nature in Basque mythology. In conjunction with International Women’s Day, PPMW and ANXO Cidery & Pintxos Bar hope to bring people together to lift up the DC community in support of women all over the world.

Members of PPMW’s Developing Leader Program, a 9-month program designed to train the next generation of leaders in the reproductive rights movement, will help execute the event, which will feature women’s health initiatives like PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis). PrEP is a once-daily pill taken to prevent your risk of contracting HIV by 90%. (more…)

“This contractor’s yard sign on 11th St NW between T and U made me do a complete double take before I cracked up over it. This just seems like a marketing fail. Might need to go back to the focus group….”

1234 H Street, NE

From an email:

“Toki Underground, DC’s first ramen house, located on H Street, NE, will soon launch a new menu available exclusively at the Pug, the popular DC bar housed on the ground floor of the building that Toki calls home. Many Toki patrons enjoy a drink at the Pug while waiting for a seat at the popular, yet small, ramen house and this new food menu offers a selection of small bar bites inspired by the flavors of Toki’s full menu. The menu, highlighted below, was designed for those enjoying a drink at the Pug or for Toki guests who want a few bites while waiting for a seat upstairs. There are a variety of snacks, many of which are vegetarian or can be made vegetarian, like the Fried Chicken or Cauliflower Steam Buns. Also on a the menu is Uncle Tony’s Lumpia, an eggroll popular in the Philippines. The lumpia is a special nod to Tony Tomeldon, owner of the Pug, who is of Filipino descent.

The menu, found below, launches at the Pug next week Wednesday, March 14. (more…)

Norton started her ANC talk by saying she had stopped three Congressional attempts to eliminate DC’s gun safety laws in the last year, after which she made the remark about Rubio. Norton then went on to say that she was accused of skirting Congressional practice concerning member-to-member courtesy and decorum in her criticism of Rubio. However, Norton said, she wanted to remind that Rubio introduced a bill (just prior to his 2015 Presidential run) that, among other things, would have overturned the District’s ban on assault weapons. Immediately after the bill’s introduction, Norton said, Rubio’s National Rifle Association rating went from “B+” to “A”.

“I’m simply calling him out,” Norton said. “The opportunism there is so raw.” (more…)
