“While The Greene Turtle will close April 9, the Shell Raiser Lounge will re-open in its place for all Wizards and Capitals postseason games.”
The Washington Business Journal asks: “Monumental buys out Greene Turtle’s lease. Could sports betting be far behind?”
So many emotions. I waver from indifference to not giving a tinker’s damn. Let’s flashback to 2009 when we judged the Greene Turtle when there were far fewer options in the neighborhood. A sampling:
“This place is horrible. I work a couple blocks away and we have all eliminated it as a lunch/happy hour option. The food is average sports bar food but the service is dreadful; very slow and I have yet to actually get the food that I ordered.”
“service is terrible. food is as expected.”
“meh…chicken sliders were dry”
“Wow worse food than RFD is not good at all.”
“Dreadful. It’s bottom of the barrel bar food.”
Updates when we learn the long term plans for the space.
