From Civil Cigar Lounge:
“We hate to have to write this, but we need to let the Civil Lounge family know, that this Thursday, September 26, 2019 will be the final night of service at Civil Cigar Lounge. Over the last 7 years we have had the pleasure of creating one of the best cigar lounges for our guests. We have had some exceptional staff, that provided good, comfortable service to a growing clientele both new-comers and regulars. We will truly miss that interaction.
The Chevy Chase Pavilion had chosen to go in a different direction after losing other service and retail tenants over the last two years. We fought to stay as long as we could, using all legal means at our disposal, but our final hearing didn’t go our way. So we are at the end of this particular road.
We are exploring new opportunities to bring Civil back within the District of Columbia. Read More

“Carol, so help me God if one more person touches the ferns…that’s it!”
The playground at Ft Bayard has been closed for renovation with no progress since December. I’m getting nowhere trying to find out who to contact for information.”
Ed. Note: Looks like this is run by the National Park Service, in which case Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton’s office might be the best bet? Anyone know what’s going on here?

“They shut down the bottom floor (out of 3) about 2 weeks ago and pulled the plug on the rest of the store in the last 48 hours.”

Thought you might be interested in this house going up – a teardown of a bungalow and a build of a crazy big house, totally out of proportion to what’s around it. I don’t know the zoning laws but this is taking up the whole lot. You don’t even see the two car garage to the right.
Here is what it’s going to look like – don’t know where the lawn surrounding the house is coming from because there will be no lawn or yard when this house is done.”

Ed. Note: Another Carpe Librum opened in Union Station back in April.
I’ve been really bummed about Carpe Librum’s Farragut location closing, so you can imagine my excitement when I stumbled across a new location in the Mazza Gallerie last night! The man working there told me they’d been open for a few weeks and are planning on making it a permanent location. Their posted hours are Mon-Fri 10am-8pm, Sat 10am-7pm, and Sun noon-6pm. They told me they are always accepting book donations during business hours! Read More
