Yesterday we reported that “The Mellow Mushroom in Adams Morgan has been closed for at least 5 days.” In certain circles panic quickly followed. Others said, this is simply the Mellow Mushroom way. And it appears the later was correct.

Thanks to Brian for sending. #1 Juicy Cajun Seafood suffered a devastating fire back in December 2017. Looking forward to learning more about Isshin Ramen. Stay tuned.
During the heatwave the surface temp of the sidewalk/roads was reaching 140+. I’m really really bummed a Chinese elm was cut down at the corner of Columbia and 18th a few days ago. Adams Morgan is v dense w pedestrian foot traffic and it provided a ton of shade for bus riders, pedestrians waiting to use the cross walk and also a nice carbon sink. Any ideas why it was cut down and not trimmed?”
