Yesterday we learned that Meiwah would be closing May 14 after 20 years at 1200 New Hampshire Ave, NW at M Street.
Well it’s not a lot, and again, it falls outside of my traditional chain of scuttlebutt, but, like Meridian Pint, it’s Meiwah!! And it’s something, so here goes – Jason reports:
“I talked with a Meiwah staffer today and apparently the joint’s *moving* to a venue somewhere downtown.”
I have no idea what percentage to allot this, so I’ll just say – fingers crossed and stay tuned!!

“Was gonna grab lunch at SKWR earlier but saw they are *closed* and apparently being evicted, yikes!”
We wondered if SKWR ‘n TRBL? on Monday. Trouble indeed. Updates when we learn what becomes of the space.
