From Little Coco’s:

“Little Coco’s Restaurant announces the launch of APERITIVO HOUR, its modified version of the iconic Italian happy hour. Mondays through Thursdays from 5 – 7 pm, Aperitivo Hour is an all-inclusive, unlimited, food and drink offer for $23 per person.

Inspired by our pre-opening trip across Italy in 2015, the team at Little Cocos’ has been noodling over how to recreate the Italian love of pre-dinner apertifs and snacks. Based on the idea that digestifs/bitters such as Campari and Aperol combined with salty snacks whet one’s appetite for dinner, Aperitivo times are ubiquitous in Italy, from coast to coast, city-to-city, restaurant-to-restaurant.

Let’s pour some out for the Shutdown, for the winter woes and for Dingo.  Let’s also toast the good times and appreciate the good stuff still around us.  Details here at the Facebook event page but basically 6:00-10:00pm (ish) upstairs at Moreland’s (14th and Colorado Ave, NW.)  And if I owe you a shirt or you’ve been looking for one (or a onesie), I’ll bring plenty for you to pick up then. Hope to see more new and old faces Thursday – cheers!

Unless specifically noted, neither she nor the company that she is affiliated with represented any of the parties or were directly involved in the transaction reported below.

Original GDoN post can be seen: here.

The original listing can be seen here: here.

Fifteen years ago, this stately over 6000 square foot detached house in 16th Street Heights listed for $725,000. The listing notes that multiple offers would be presented at the broker’s office (that’s the way it used to happen). It settled in late May 2003 for $760,000., which would have generally been a high price for a house in DC at the time.

Fast forward just two years later, when it next sold in late June 2005 for $1,212,5000., which was $37,500. less than asking. The interior pics from that listing are must see. Agents in DC were just starting to use digital cameras for additional pics.

From 2006 to 2008, the number of detached houses sold in 16th Street Heights declined from 44 in 2005 (which many DC real estate industry veterans would describe as a peak year) to 29 in 2006, 26 in 2007, and 26 in 2008. Prices, however, remained relatively stable.

Until 2009.

In 2008, the highest priced detached home sale in the neighborhood was $1,550,000. In 2009, the highest detached home sale was $815,000. Median net price dropped from $619,250. to $471,000.

Prices in the area began recovering and gaining upward momentum starting in 2012.

In 2017, the highest detached home sale in 16th Street Heights was $1,485,000., with a net median price for detached homes of $850,000. Year to date, the subject property is the highest detached sale in 2018, and net median price is up to $920,000. for detached homes in the legal subdivision of 16th Street Heights.

The listing agent for this transaction was Gail Milazzo with Long and Foster Real Estate Inc. Jennifir Birtwhistle, with Weichert, REALTORS, represented the Purchaser.
