“Next Tuesday we will be playing the cult classic “The Room” on the big screen projector. We will also be handing out free plastic spoons to our guests for throwing, which is the tradition among the film’s devotees — to throw spoons at the screen. Movies are starting at 8 now.

Chief Ike’s closed after 25 years in March 2015.
The liquor license placard says:
“Infusion Club and Restaurant
A new Tavern serving Ethiopian cuisine. Seating capacity of 350 inside. Total Occupancy Load of 600. Sidewalk Cafe with 30 seats. Requesting an Entertainment Endorsement, with Dancing and Cover Charge.”
Based on the size, I wonder if this will also be taking the adjacent space that was set to become, with coming soon signage still up, Villa Tuscana.
Updates as Infusion gets closer to opening.

“Got home today and lines are painted to make parking lanes on either side of the road, making the road seem even more narrow. One way signs went up today.”

The three wonderful women who purchased Awash and transformed it into Asmara about a year ago have poured a heck of a lot of TLC into the joint and it’s quietly an absolute gem of a restaurant/lounge.
They are open 7 days a week from 11am to 2am (3am on Fri/Sat) and serve fantastic Ethiopian/Eritrean & American cuisine all day & all night (–superb late night alternative to jumbo slice). Breakfast is also available all day & all night. And their “Early Bird Special” (pasta with choice of sauce & any n/a beverage for $6.99 or a vegetarian platter with enjera & any n/a beverage for $7.99) is available from noon to 6pm. Happy Hour is 4 to 8 all seven days of the week ($3 beers!–including imports & small craft collection).
Also, the upstairs lounge there, or “Studio Ga Ga”, as it is colloquially known as, has become the unofficial nightly hang-out spot for the old Dr. Clock’s/Asylum/Toledo Lounge/Millie & Al’s/Angles diaspora and features a New Wave/’80’s-heavy playlist and host of $8 absinthe drinks.”

From a Facebook event Thursday:
“The Old: After a happy year at ESL, the creative team from Addendum is moving right up 18th Street into the basement of Smoke & Barrel. We wish our old partners well.
The New: The move from Dupont to Adams Morgan is a pleasant one for us, as it brings us closer to our community. We’ve got a new name and some cozy new digs, but some things remain the same: no sugar, no citrus; no muss, no fuss; no shakers and no f*ing Tito’s. Jenny (Feldt) leads the charge on cocktails, programming, and hugs, while Lukey (B. Smith) runs the development house, providing the ingredients that keep things fresh in the absence of syrup and citrus.
This will be the first night of our two-month run as a PopUp called Past Perfect. Past Perfect will be taking over “Beneath the Barrel” below Smoke& Barrel and will be open Thursday through Sundays starting at 6pm until last call.“
