Update Statement from Paul Marcus, CEO, Marcus Partners:
“An affiliate of Marcus Partners acquired 1225 19th Street NW in August 2018. In late September, Mr. Carlson expressed his desire to operate his lunch counter outside of regular building hours, a petition he had made unsuccessfully to the building’s prior two owners.
We have worked diligently with Mr. Carlson to identify a solution that would both satisfy his business goals and fulfill our obligation to ensure that all tenant spaces remain secure during non-business hours. As both a landlord and a community member, we are deeply invested in the business success of all of our tenants.
We evaluated and proposed several solutions to Mr. Carlson, none of which included a “uniformed escort” for any patron. Despite his claims, Marcus Partners would never take an action that denigrates or singles out an individual with a disability. The dignity of every human being is a central tenet of both our business practices and our personal beliefs.
Our ongoing discussions with Mr. Carlson, coupled with the lack of any new protocols instituted since we acquired the property, make his sudden decision to cease both discussions and operations quite perplexing. Our earnest desire is that CF Folks’ renowned lunch time service will once again soon be available to its loyal patrons and that it will operate from our property for years to come.”
Well, more terrible news. Gah. Thanks to all who passed on Kate Bennett’s tweet on Friday:
“Saddest DC food news ever: today was the last day of service at beloved CF Folks. I enjoyed lunch there so many times in the 37 years it existed on 19th Street. I hope Art can find a new spot. RIP, the best french fries in town.”
CF Folks’ website says:
“After 37 years, CF Folks will close its doors after service on Friday, November 9th.
Over the past four years we have been so restrained by our landlords to develop our business in the morning or later on in the evening that we cannot afford to continue successfully, “as a lunchtime only operation”. And we stated that clearly to the landlord some 5 years ago. (more…)

Square footage was not mentioned in the listing. Because it is a cooperatively owned building, the tax record is for the building and not the individual unit, so square footage for the unit is not reported on the tax record. Other settled studios in the building were noted to be in the 400-500 square foot range. (more…)

Prepare for Call Your Mother like lines but it will be worth it. And for a good cause too. All the details below.

Saturday night around 1am there was a hate-motivated assault on Q St. NW between 15th and 16th across from the JCC, and it did not show up in the MPD blotter. I could hear yelling of gay slurs that escalated into some sort of violent attack where a man was yelling that he “f-cked her up,” (more…)
