From Impala DC:
“Impala Cantina y Taqueria has closed its doors. Thank you H Street for the 5 years of tacos and margaritas, it’s been a ride. Thank you for all the H St Festivals, Cinco de Mayo’s, comedy shows, Taco Tuesday’s, movie nights, brunches, birthdays, anniversaries, beer can cakes, and summer evenings on the patio. We laughed, we danced, we drank too much. We’ve met friends we will stay in touch with for the rest of our lives. If you have a memory you would like to share, we would love to read it! Please post in the comments. Thank you, neighbors”
Has anyone else noted how terrible the streetcar signs are? The contrast is terrible. I can barely make out when the next streetcar is coming when I stand in front of the sign, much less across the street trying to decide if I should cross to take it. Why would they put these up? They should have taken a note from WMATA, their signs are at least legible.”

Thanks to Anna and Smita for sending:
“This property has been vacant for quite a while, so I’m very excited about this. Unclear if this is an extension of The Pursuit Wine Bar down the street or if this is something completely different.”
“New on H and 11 NE! Pursuit wine bar and kitchen. This previously had a Two Boots pizza banner on it, which never came to be.”
