“Fortunately chauffeurs are regarded as essential workers. Wilson spotted taking a ride in a backpack at Georgetown Waterfront Park.”
Oof, missed this one. Back in June 2018 Jose Andres opened this America Eats Tavern in the former Old Glory BBQ space. Per the above note, they will not be ropening.

Thanks to Lissy for sending from Saturday night:
“We spotted what we discovered was this newly married couple a few tables over. People had been sending them glasses of champagne with one couple offering to buy them a bottle to take home. Here is a video as they got up to leave. The entire restaurant clapped for them when they got up to leave. It was heartwarming.”
Please email your awesomeness to [email protected] and let me know where you found it.

“A Neo French Bistro in the Georgetowne, the old European heart of our Nation’s Capital” Read More

Thanks to Andy for sending from Georgetown. Anyone know if the plywood is still up at the Mount Vernon Square location?
Thanks to Audrey for sending the warning from outside of Dumbarton Oaks Park (3100 R Street, NW).
Thanks to Dave for sending: “Looks like a bakery is eventually going into the former Johnny Rockets M Street location. [3131 M Street, NW]
Hold up.., the application is to a person named Andy Taylor. Googling that name with “bakery” pops up Levain Bakery.
Are we getting a Levain Bakery?!”
For the past 14 or so years, my parents and I have gone to Hu’s Shoes in Georgetown on Mother’s Day so my mom can pick out a pair of shoes after brunch. We stumbled upon the store years ago, and have kept up the tradition ever since, rain or shine. The guys always sit down to catch up on what’s happened the past year, and patiently help as my mom tries on every pair of flats and my dad riddles them with dad jokes. We look forward to it every year.
Today, knowing we wouldn’t be able to come in, I reached out by email to let the guys know that we are thinking of them and will be in as soon as social distancing regulations ease up. Read More
Thanks to Andrew for sending: “Alley find from a renovation trash dump in Georgetown. It’s a 1920s/30s Miller Company UV light therapy lamp. Any period-appropriate color suggestions for when I restore it?” Read More
