Thanks to William (and others) for passing on the notice from Federalist Pig:

From The Potter’s House:
“On Wednesday, May 20, The Potter’s House will reopen its doors after going dark for more than two months during the coronavirus pandemic.
This nonprofit neighborhood institution, much-beloved in its Adams Morgan community, celebrated its 60th anniversary in April. It’s one of the longest-running enterprises in the city and one that has survived many hardships in the past.
But it’s much more than a cafe and bookstore — The Potter’s House is a hub of connection, a safe and welcoming gathering place for a deeply diverse community. Its reopening offers a ray of much-needed sunshine to the city. It’s a reassurance that The Potter’s House will continue to be here to offer hospitality, welcome, and comfort — even in the midst of a global pandemic. Read More

Since then, we’ve gotten two more mystery milk dropoffs. One in March, and one today (gotta say, quarantine has made me appreciate free shelf stable milk–after I disinfect the carton!) Read More

If true this would be devastating on many levels. We will be keeping a very close eye on this, for once I’m very much hoping a previously accurate tipster is wrong.
A reliable tipster writes: “word on the street is The Line is completely closing for good.”
The Line DC’s website still says: “In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, all LINE Hotels are closed to the public including hotel rooms and all restaurants and bars.
Please check back here or on Instagram at @thelinehotel for re-opening updates and other information as things evolve.” Read More
