From an email:

“Saturday, July 13 from 3:30pm-5pm

One Saturday a month, Dio Wine Bar hosts Saturday happy hour for parents, guardians and their children. Families are welcome to enjoy drinks and food without the added expense of finding a sitter or getting the stink eye for bringing their little ones to the bar. On Saturday, July 13, we are opening at 3:30pm and are excited to host Lola and Pear Publishing for a children’s book reading as part of their Book, Babies, and Booze Tour. Sip on sangria while listening to The Adventures of Duke, the Therapy Dog: Duke Finds A Home. No tickets required, just bring yourselves!

Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner takes place one Saturday per month from 4pm-5pm. Future dates are August 10, September 28, and October 26.”

Thanks to Elizabeth for sending:

The Book-Ish Series:

Being in the nation’s capital, we can’t help but nerd out over politics, the sciences, and cultural phenomena. Book-ish is our series of fusion seminar/wine tasting classes that are centered around a niche subject and how it relates to the wine in your glass. Trust us – you’ve never been to a wine class like this before. Taste wine, enjoy nibbles, and target=”_blank”>learn something new!”

Next up is October 28th Hip Hop and Wine: How Rappers Impact Wine Economics (more…)

The liquor license placard for Dio says:

“A wine bar that will serve food and alcoholic beverages. Total Occupancy Load of 24 seats.”

Their facebook page says:

“Dio is a natural wine bar with light fare and a hip atmosphere.”

Washington City Paper reported:

“Khoury-Diaz is starting small, literally. Her bar named after Dionysus—the god of wine—is about 900 square feet and will focus on natural wine. The white-hot style of winemaking calls for minimal intervention both out in the field growing the grapes and once the grape juice is being made into wine.”

Updates as they get closer to opening.

From Dio:

Dio Wine Bar and Odd Provisions are thrilled to announce their new collaboration: [email protected] Starting on Friday, July 19 Dio will toss their food menu out the window for good and embrace Odd Provisions food with open arms. Next time you come in for your favorite glass of natural wine, you can pair it with tried and true Odd Provisions items like a spicy salami sandwich with herb pesto and fennel confit or a watermelon radish & snap pea salad with garlic chive chèvre.

NKOTB 2.0 at Mess Hall

From a press release:

“Last summer’s NKOTB (New Kitchens On The Block) event gave diners an exclusive chance to try signatures bites and sips from Marjorie Meek-Bradley’s Smoked & Stacked, Colada Shop, Matt Baker’s Gravitas, and Cathal Armstrong’s Kaliwa, and other restaurants before they opened. It was such a huge hit that we said, “Let’s Do It Again.”
