From Blues Alley:

“Join DO’A on a journey of soulful music, multi-lingual in all of the senses. With a deep and lush voice delivered in a collage of sounds that are uniquely hers, DO’A will transport the audience to a place of music in its purest form.

DO’A began playing and singing early on under the guidance of her mother, a concert pianist. She later taught herself the guitar. DO’A seeks beauty in all forms: she is comfortable as much with abstract algebra as with playing Chopin and singing Bossa Nova. Read More

Thanks to Mark for sharing: “The old Satellite Room building attached to the 930 Club has been torn down :(

I guess there might still plans to build the “vintage” 9:30 Club on this spot? I had the impression they would simply renovate the space, not rebuild it from the ground up.”

and thanks to DCTitansFans for sharing: “Sadly, Republic in Takoma Park is closing in a couple of weeks.”

Last day of service will be September 4th: Read More

From a press release:

“Clubhouse (1070 Wisconsin Ave NW) will be mixing cocktails, serving fresh coffee and slinging pizza dough in the newly renovated space in Georgetown Park, formerly known as Church Hall. When given the opportunity to re-open, Clubhouse founders Geoff Dawson and Peter Bayne wanted to create an environment that’ll be a gathering spot for everyone in the Georgetown neighborhood.

Clubhouse will open in the mornings for the neighborhood to enjoy a coffee menu curated by Madison Peake, formerly of Tatte Bakery & Cafe Group. Peake has perfected a coffee and breakfast menu including a vanilla bean date latte, breakfast burritos, avocado toast and plenty of croissants to get everyone through their morning Zoom meetings. Clubhouse’s 9,000 square foot space becomes one of the largest work from home spaces in DC.

DC Fire and EMS reported at 4:25am August 12th: “Update Working Fire 3200 block Grace St NW. #DCsBravest located fire in restaurant kitchen area first floor rear. Visible fire extinguished. Opening up and checking for extension. No injuries.”

Reverie‘s owner Johnny Spero wrote on his IG:

“I can’t begin to explain the range of emotions I’ve encountered this weekend. The one thing that hit me harder then everything going inside my head is the insane outpouring of support from the DC community and beyond. The fire was more devastating than the original story we had posted. The fire and smoke damage is extensive and we will have to completely rebuild. We’ve been saying from day 1 we aren’t going anywhere and this won’t stop us, it will only make us better. We are going to continue to challenge ourselves and push forward. My family and team are thankful for every single message and call and I will keep everyone updated on our progress.”

A GoFundMe has been launched and already raised almost $42,000 as of this morning. The fundraiser’s goal is set at $200,000:

“We are raising money for our colleague and extraordinary friend, Johnny Spero whose flagship restaurant, Reverie, was lost after a brutal fire last night (August 11th). Read More
