“We wanted to thank you all for supporting our big move from Baltimore to D.C. dating back to the original planned opening date in 2020, and again when it finally happened in 2022. All of our efforts were full heartedly put into this project and it is with great sorrow to announce that our doors have officially closed in Chinatown.
On behalf of our wonderful Howl D.C. staff, we will truly miss the family and Wolfpack we have built within the community here. Read More
Wanted to give a heads up to folks. Not sure if this is a new trend starting but as I was walking up the escalator from the green line level tonight (Wed.), I passed by a group of young people. About a third of the way up, I felt something hit the back of my head with a good amount of force. Read More

First Mayor Bowser tweeted: “We intend to keep our end of the bargain and enforce the leases with Monumental that require the Wizards and Capitals to play at the arena through 2047 and the Mystics to play in Congress Heights through 2037.
If Monumental goes ahead and breaks its leases, the short-term impact will be tough, not only on the neighborhood, but on our entire city. But let me be clear: The city owns the land under the Capital One Arena and will own the building, should Monumental Sports break its lease.”
Monumental then tweeted: “We’ve been clear w/ @MayorBowser that we will honor agreements to play at the arenas. Caps & Wiz have the right to pay off the bond in 2027 & end the COA lease early – MSE plans to exercise that right. And the Mystics will play at ESA through 2037 (unless city agrees otherwise).” Read More

Thanks to Matt (and others) for passing on:
“Dear Fans and Supporters,
I’m writing to update our community of fans, customers, athletes, employees, our union workforce, sponsors, partners and extended family members regarding last month’s announcement that Monumental Sports & Entertainment has reached a framework of an agreement for a public-private partnership to create a world-class Entertainment District at Potomac Yard, the cornerstone of which will be a brand new, state-of-the-art arena for the NHL’s Washington Capitals and the NBA’s Washington Wizards.
Since the announcement, I have heard from fans across the DMV regarding the potential creation of a new Entertainment District if all approvals are received. I appreciate all the support and excitement from fans and customers about this project and I certainly acknowledge concerns heard from passionate members of the community. I look forward to hearing from those who are concerned, working to address any issues raised and demonstrating why I believe this is the best decision for our fans, our thousands of full and part-time employees, the teams, the athletes, our partners, and the DMV.
I believe in the DMV and will always be an advocate for our extended community, for the benefit of our teams and fans. My goal is to always take the high road and I believe I have lived up to that. However, I feel that it is important for me to address you, our community, directly, presenting the facts of this project.
At the heart of this decision is my belief that this project will accomplish two critical objectives: Read More
