Thanks to Doug for sending: “Chevy Chase pavilion will be down to the Covid Center, cheesecake factory, the hotel, and the small convenience store in the basement which never seems to be open.”
A new beer garden, Valor Brewpub, opened up very quietly in Tenleytown at 42nd and Wisconsin. They have a truck set up in the parking lot next to the Bullfrog Bagel truck and have set up tables in front of the former bike store space (the bike store is still occupying the adjacent building).

This is sad. These three businesses on Fesseden all got broken into last night. Glass doors all shattered. The Coffee Nature guy said nothing but spare change was stolen. All the businesses are cleaning up and really sad. The police just left. I was there when the workers at Sol Mexican Grill showed up for work to find the police in front of their restaurant. Pretty sad to see them just stand there staring at the door.”
If anyone lives nearby, it’d be great to shower them with love today/this weekend:
Coffee Nature is located at 4224 Fessenden St NW and you can see their menu here. They are open 8:00am – 6:00pm today and 8:00am – 2:00pm Saturday (closed Sunday.)

As we’ve discussed MANY times, not to overstate it but Rodman’s is the greatest store on the face of the earth. A better selection of beer, wine, hard candies, obscure desserts from Germany and Austria, pickles, tea etc. – you will not find. Also, you can get your watch battery changed in the lower level. I digress – the one hole in their shopping repertoire for absolutely everything has been liquor sales. Read More
