No one, and I mean NO ONE, seems to know what this shop with a great window but not much more (e.g. it’s never open) is all about. Do you? It’s on the east side of Connecticut Ave north of the circle between R and S. Any ideas?”
Aaron writes (and sends the photo above):
“There’s a new business there that is either DC’s newest and most secret speakeasy, or DC’s weirdest retail experiment. It purports to be “Capital Microscope Supply Company”, but how many microscopes do you have to sell to walk-ins to pay rent on the 1700 block of Connecticut?? Even better, they have rotating teaser signs posted on the door – this week it’s “Summer Hours now in effect”.
This has got to be some kind of bar or secret restaurant.”

From a press release:
“Buffalo Billiards, one of DC’s most iconic sports bar since 1994, will host a farewell party on August 24 from noon until close.
