“900 block of F Street, NW next to the Atlantic Building.”

From a press release:

The Escape Game is thrilled to announce its expansion to Downtown DC (950 F Street NW, Suite 106 Washington, DC 20004) slated to open its 24th location on Friday, April 29, 2022.

The Escape Game is a live 60-minute adventure where guests first choose a theme – from a 1950’s prison to submarine missions, or even a classic art heist – then are fully immersed into the environment and tasked with solving puzzles and overcoming challenges as a team. The games provide a unique hands-on experience, designed for families, friends, couples, corporate groups, and anyone else looking for an elevated unplugged adventure. Read More


5100 Wisconsin Avenue, NW

As we’ve discussed MANY times, not to overstate it but Rodman’s is the greatest store on the face of the earth. A better selection of beer, wine, hard candies, obscure desserts from Germany and Austria, pickles, tea etc. – you will not find. Also, you can get your watch battery changed in the lower level. I digress – the one hole in their shopping repertoire for absolutely everything has been liquor sales. Read More

Ed. Note: From Reliable Tavern (3655 Georgia Ave, NW) also located on the block: “We have a lease through at least 2026 and at this point we are planning to continue operating for the foreseeable future. COVID was really challenging, but we’ve been fortunate to receive some additional funding from the city to help us with back rent, and really appreciate the continued support from the community…. business is picking up.”

Will update when/if I learn about any changes coming to the other businesses on the block.

“Dear PoPville,

iacovelli Cafe & Liquor [“Liquor store and cafe. Beer, wine, liquor. Regular breakfast, lunch, dinner + special additional Jamaican menu (curry chicken/shrimp, oxtail, brown stew)], is closing at the end of May. Our old landlord ignored our request to renew our lease (we have been there 5.5 years), then sold the building! Very sad for us as we bought this store when our daughter was born and we survived through Covid. My husband Tambe runs the store and is the chef.” Read More
