Last week we shared the news that Saint Vincent Wine was opening for online orders. Thanks to the good folks over there for sharing some incredible photos of the space with us. I’m told they’ll be opening the sweet back patio the day after thanksgiving. Reservations will be available next week via resy. For now you can still get those online orders with 25% off all wine, beer & cheese/charcu to go.

Temporary Winter Hours will be: Read More

“Dear PoPville,

After months and months of delays, St. Vincent Wine finally opened today on Georgia Ave [the old union drinkery/sundevich space]! Brought to you by the amazing Fred Uku from Red Hen and Ripple and Peyton Sherwood from Midlands, it took 18 months to open their doors and I’m sure they could use some DC love. Read More

From Hook Hall:

“Hook Hall, Park View’s massive bar and event space, has been transformed into a Viking Village and reopens this weekend with themed “huts”, rows of firepit and a Viking-inspired menu and cocktails.

The summer’s “cabanas” have turned into cozy spaces with firepits, sectional lounge seating and blankets. Additional huts have been added to Hook Hall’s backyard along with 16 fire pitted seating areas in the center of the yard. Read More

Really, hopefully temporary sad news, from the really good people at Boundary Stone:

“Since March we have fought to be here for our employees and our neighborhood, which we have faithfully served for the past nine years. Thank you to everyone who has supported Boundary Stone and have been so generous to our staff. It truly has been impactful and has allowed us to delay having to write something like this for the last 8 months. Unfortunately with colder weather moving in, rising virus counts, and no relief on the horizon, we have made the truly agonizing decision to close Boundary Stone until further notice.

We will remain open until Wed Nov 25th when we will celebrate our 10th annual Thanksgiving tradition and end this epic run with our showing of The Last Waltz. We cannot predict what the future holds for gathering places like Boundary Stone, but we are hopeful that we will be welcoming you all again at some point. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I’d like to hear if folks know of bars/restaurants that will be showing election returns on Nov 3. I’ve looked online but nothing much comes up. Four years ago I watched at Red Derby and have fond memories of the experience (despite the outcome of the election). I hope that there are opportunities to come together to watch the drama unfold, despite COVID realities.”

Ed. Note: Could be some good overlap for our recent discussions on where to watch sports and where to go while staying warm outside. And of course, I second and recommend, always, Red Derby.

“Dear PoPville,

my son is going to start day care on Friday before my wife goes back to work on Monday. I’ve taken the day off so we can sort of ease each other’s nerves. Now, in ordinary times, we would pull on some non-sweat pants, go somewhere to have a few drinks, and have a conversation uninterrupted by silly dancing, noise-making, book-reading, and other means of keeping a baby entertained that usually define our days. But there’s a pandemic on and the weather is going to be unpleasant on Friday. Does anyone know of a place where we can safely pass some time, preferably with a bar, preferably outdoors, preferably out of the rain, and preferably in the vicinity of a space heater? (high of 54 on Friday…)

We’d be grateful for any guidance the community could offer.”
