5405 Georgia Avenue, NW looking south towards Macombo Lounge at Jefferson Street
Back in December we shared some mouth watering Scuttlebutt that the folks from Bloomingdale’s Showtime Bar, across the street from Boundary Stone on Rhode Island Ave., had plans to open up a second spot in Brightwood Park on Georgia Ave (photo above.) [Showtime opened in Bloomingdale back in 2013 and is perennially placed on all the ‘best of’ lists around town.] A week ago I reported that Neptune Room was coming to 5405 Georgia Avenue, NW and because the liquor license placard listed the prolific Andrew Kline as attorney, I suspected this might be the rumored Showtime spot. And now a local food blog confirms it is indeed the Showtime folks: “Team Showtime confirmed”.

The liquor license placard for Neptune Room says:
“A new Retailer’s Class C Tavern. Seating capacity of 30 inside. Total Occupancy Load of 96. The License will include an Entertainment Endorsement for the inside of the premises only.”
The attorney listed on the placard is the prolific Andrew Kline who is usually involved with significant projects. Could this be related to the scuttlebutt about a 2nd bar from the owners of Showtime in Bloomingdale? Either way, STAY TUNED.

I was in a car accident last Friday a few blocks from my house. Minor fender bender but I was majorly pissed because the car I hit didn’t stop at her stop sign. I didn’t realize until after inspections of the vehicles that her stop sign was laying on the ground. *insert colorful language here*
My assumption was that the sign probably came down as result of the crazy wind storms we’ve had since that previous Friday. Regardless, today is now Wednesday (5 days after I called 311 to make the repair) and and the sign is still down! (more…)
