Official word has finally come down on Dolcezza Gelato’s first location closing for good:
“It’s official, we’ve outgrown our Georgetown store. We started making gelato here in 2004. It’s where we found ourselves, new friends and experimented with flavors and brews. It’s bittersweet that we need more space to grow. Thank you, thank you for 14 years of fun.”
So with sweets on mind – where’s your favorite spot for a sweet after dinner? Hell we’re adults, perhaps your favorite spot for dinner?

Ed. Note: WAMU notes, “In the District, any business that holds city-granted licenses or permits is subject to D.C. human rights law, which bars discrimination on the basis of sex or gender identity…D.C.’s Office of Human Rights could also launch its own investigation into The Wing. But city officials don’t appear to have the company in their crosshairs.”
From a press release:
“The Wing, a network of co-working and community spaces for women, is opening its fourth location (and first outside of NYC!) at 1056 Thomas Jefferson NW in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C.
“Opening in Washington, D.C. allows us to welcome a new community of women to The Wing. We’re excited to invite the women who are fighting for change and rewriting the rules of politics into our space to share their mission with our members,” said co-Founder & CEO, Audrey Gelman.
ABOUT THE SPACE
The Wing D.C. will offer members signature amenities, including a cafe and bar, showers, lockers, meeting rooms, phone booths and an all-female art gallery.
Additional amenities of the 10,000 square foot space include a wellness and exercise room, bleacher seating for events, and The Wing’s largest female-centric library to date. (more…)

I keep forgetting to post this wild development. The liquor license placard for a restaurant TBD says:
“New Restaurant, serving Spanish cuisine/tapas with a vegetarian infusion. Sidewalk Café with 20 seats. Total Occupancy Load is 350 with seating for 200.”
This one is blowing my mind since it feels like Prince & Princess has been there forever. Plus I love track suits so this one stings a bit. Updates when we learn more specifics.
