Joe Schinosi via GoFundMe

Very sad news readers have passed on from the Queen Vic:

“Some of you may have heard that our friend Joe Schinosi passed away earlier this week. Joe helped us open The Vic back in 2011 and was our friend long before then. His death has hit us hard and we are still struggling to process it so we don’t have the words right now. Joe’s funeral will be held on Friday August 12th at 10.30am at Holy Trinity Catholic Church. Please consider donating to help his family with the costs.”

From a press release:

“On July 20th, the Bring Our Families Home Campaign, a campaign led by family members of Americans wrongfully detained or held hostage abroad, will be unveiling a public mural in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The mural, designed and installed by Iowan artist Isaac Campbell, will use the wheat paste technique to capture the faces of 18 Americans held hostage or wrongfully detained abroad. Read More

“I was renovating a closet in my Adams Morgan row house and found this jammed behind the shelf. It’s a $2.50 ticket from 1963 to a midnight party with jazz band, Bobby Felder and The Blue Notes, at the Prince Hall Masonic Temple on U (ahem, You) St.

Robert “Bobby” Felder went on to become a music professor at UDC and I found this recent interview with him on YouTube” Read More

“Perfectly preserved section of the The Sunday Star with an advertisement for Kay’s on 7th street. This was used at underlay in a kitchen pantry in Tenleytown. House was built in 1926 papers dated December 19th 1926. $50 for a diamond ring!”
