From All Souls (725 T Street, NW): “This was not an easy decision to make but All Souls will be erring on the side of caution and will be closed for the immediate future. We will evaluate this decision next week as the situation evolves.”

From All Souls’ website:

“Dear Friends & Neighbors,

This was not an easy decision to make but All Souls will be erring on the side of caution and will be closed for the immediate future. We will evaluate this decision next week as the situation evolves.

We struggled between not wanting to over-react or under-react but the decision was finally easier to make when we remembered we’re a bar. The very thing we do is bring people together and right now that seems like a bad idea, especially with booze involved.

Please be careful out there. If we all take this seriously and practice social distancing, hopefully, we’re getting back to normal sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, we’ll be taking care of our staff as best we can as we weather this storm. If you’re able, do your part to support the ones who are still providing valuable services. Order delivery from restaurants, pick up gift cards from shops, boutiques, salons, etc. Don’t hoard things. Be smart so we don’t freak out the hospitals.

Thanks for your support and understanding as we all get through these difficult times.

All Souls

The Potomac Roasting Company is stocked with excellent coffee to meet almost any palate. But that’s not the only good news. We now offer free shipping for orders over $35.

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality beans sourced from small farms in Latin America and Africa that are owned and operated by women. We will make sure that your coffee is roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

Our newest coffee comes from Mbozi, Tanzania. We secured a shipment just before this small batch of delicious beans sold out. In Swahili, Usawa means balance and Kahawa means coffee. The beans are grown on small farms that are part of a cooperative promoting gender equity and market access for women. This is a smooth and balanced coffee that is sure to please.

Join local sketch comedy legends (in our own minds) Brick Penguin for an evening of live, dark, rip-roaring sketch comedy. See D.C.’s longest-running sketch comedy group do what they do best, when they’re not performing across the country in places such as the terrifying Philadelphia, the gooey Chicago, the M&M Store-y New York City, and the crunchy Seattle.

Now, our last show may or may not have mentioned Taylor Swift, and we may have gotten into some trouble from confused Swifties who thought they scored a $15 ticket to a Taylor Swift concert. So, to apologize and clear up any confusion, we’ve decided to dedicate another show to her. We promise she might or might not appear this time.
