Washington, DC

Ask and you shall receive. Thanks to Betsy for suggesting from this morning’s rant/revel post:

“Does anyone know what’s going on with 1210 Kennedy St NW? (I think it’s 1210 – it’s on Kennedy between 13th and Georgia, much closer to Georgia.) What looks like a two-story pop-up is being built on top of the existing townhouse. I thought that wasn’t allowed anymore? I’m not criticizing/complaining, just honestly curious.”


14th and Decatur Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

WMATA will be closing the bus barn on 14th St. between Decatur and Buchannan in fall 2019 and rebuilding the barn to include 55,000 sq ft of retail and public parking. It is scheduled to open in 2024. There is a community meeting at the barn on Monday, March 11 6:30 pm with WMATA and Brandon Todd. It would be great to expand this discussion.”

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!
