From an email:
“This holiday season, Sunshine Sachs is organizing its 2nd annual coat drive on behalf of the amazing DC-based non-profit Martha’s Table.
On Friday, December 14th before 4pm in the metro DC area, our team will arrange pick-ups of your gently used outwear (coats, hats, scarves, gloves).
Additionally, between now and Dec. 14, you can drop your outerwear off at our Dupont Circle office (1875 Connecticut Ave NW) – just reach out to let us know when you’ll be dropping by, and we’ll come grab them from you. If you are interested in scheduling a pick-up, drop off please email [email protected]
Here’s to making someone else a little warmer this winter!”
Thanks to Dave and Kevin for sending: “New street line painting on 18th St between P and Q, NW…no words…”
Thanks to all who messaged on Friday. Aisha writes: “First Ruta, now Hanks”.
Hank’s Cocktail Bar writes:
“Hank’s Cocktail Bar is boxing up shop on December 14th & moving to the 2nd floor of our flagship location, Hank’s Oyster Bar in Dupont Circle. Same great cocktails, same Hank’s hospitality, awesome new space. Stay up to date on social media for our January 2019 reopening date. It’s not goodbye… it’s see you soon!”
Ed. Note: Brief but beloved Ruta Del Vino closed last month on Upshur Street after two years in Petworth.
Hank’s first opened on Upshur Street as Twisted Horn back in January 2016. They changed names to Hank’s Cocktail Bar back in November 2016. Updates when we learn what becomes of the property. A look at the property’s transformation after the jump. (more…)
Does anyone know anything about the abandoned bike chained to the awning pole in front of Lucky Bar on Connecticut? I see it every day going to and from work. It’s missing a rear wheel and I just thought maybe the owner took it to keep the bike from being stolen. Last night when I walked by, I noticed the proprietors of Lucky Bar have wrapped the poles in Christmas garland, including the abandoned bike. Sounds like there’s a interesting story there.”
Ed. Note: You say abandoned bike, I say Christmas miracle. Sounds to me like it simply the folks at Lucky Bar being awesome. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar as my Uncle Sig used to say.
Of course if there is some bizarre story – I’m all ears!!
