Washington, DC

What does it all mean? Let me tell you what it all means. Nothing. It means nothing. In the wise words of Gorgias:

“Nothing exists; Even if something exists, nothing can be known about it; and Even if something can be known about it, knowledge about it can’t be communicated to others. Even if it can be communicated, it cannot be understood.”

Thanks to Will for sending:

“Starbucks Dupont south is closing on December 30th.”

What the hell – first one of the many Comfort One closes and now one of the many Starbucks is closing. Dark days in Dupont indeed.

Now hold on just a second – a liquor license application has just been applied for a Tokyo Pearl at 1301 Connecticut Avenue, NW:

“A Tavern that will serve Modern Japanese food. The licensee is requesting a Sidewalk Café with seating for 62 patrons. They are also requesting an Entertainment Endorsement to provide live entertainment indoors only with Dancing and Cover Charge. Interior seating for 24, with a Total Occupancy Load of 83”

Ed. Note: 1301 Connecticut could also include the former Avenue Jack space.

Update: Alas, it is the Avenue Jack space according to the Washington Business Journal and the CityPaper.

STAY TUNED for an exact opening date and for info on who takes over the Starbucks space.
