1527 14th Street, NW
My husband and I have tried ordering from Great Wall Szechuan House twice this weekend and no one is picking up the phone. I know there were reports last month about them possibly closing, but we just ordered maybe 2 weeks ago without a problem. Have you heard anything about whether or not they’re still open?”

Stacie asks: “has anyone checked on Kostas and Greek Deli? Office is in Foggy Bottom, but working from home in NoVa and fretting about not being able to support them right now.”
UPDATE on Greek Deli! “Greek Deli is still open! 11am-2pm for pickup, not sure if they’re doing delivery.” Read More

Thanks to those who sent from DC Improv:
“From Allyson Jaffe, owner and comedy school principal:
The last two weeks have been a nightmare with the last two days putting the nail in the coffin. Here’s the other side to the quarantine. Today I had to lay off almost my entire staff (50 people). Their worlds have been rocked and lives are forever changed. The DC Improv is closed for who knows how long. I have no idea if my business will be able to weather this storm and reopen. I have had to make some of the most difficult decisions of my life all while trying to keep it together and handle the anxiety of our customers and staff. I have never been so sad in my life. My heart breaks for all of my employees who I cannot help as I try to salvage the business I devoted close to 22 years to. I am grateful to the comedians who performed at the club this past weekend to give just a bit of relief to us during this chaos. I’m a survivor and have been through a lot in my life. I will do whatever I can to try to get through this with the goal of getting my crew back together again as soon as possible. This has been devastating but the one thing I know is that we need comedy more than ever.” Read More
