I did not think anything could top Wawa this week. I was wrong. I was 99% sure this was a joke but the research skills of Eat DC have proven me wrong – check this out from a Douglas Development advertising flyer. You can see Kick Axe’s website here.


n fact, an axe is one of the safest objects to throw (besides a marshmallow… okay, and a pillow).

Our Ax-perts will teach you the basics in only 10-15 minutes and then be with you throughout the experience to assist and help keep score.
Safety is our number one priority!”

From a press release:

“Completing Mindful Restaurant Group’s culinary trifecta within the historic and newly renovated Hecht Warehouse in the up-and-coming Ivy City neighborhood, La Puerta Verde (2001 Fenwick Street NE, Washington DC 20002; www.LaPuertaVerdeDC.com; @LaPuertaVerdeDC; (202) 290-1875) – a casual Mexican eatery paying homage to both Mexican cuisine and the many individuals owner Ari Gejdenson has had the pleasure of working with throughout his journey in the hospitality world as a restaurateur – will open to the public beginning with dinner service on Tuesday, January 17th.”


Located in the newly renovated historic Hecht Warehouse, La Puerta Verde – which translates to ‘The Green Door’ – is simultaneously reminiscent of a traditional Mexican Hacienda and nostalgic to its Ivy City roots. Featuring 3,800 square feet (6,800 square feet total between the three connected restaurants including Ari’s Diner, DOCK FC, & La Puerta Verde), and seating for up to 85 guests – 60 in the main dining room and 25 at the bar – celebrated design gurus Eric Gronning – owner and principal of Gronning Architects PLLC (www.gronningarchitects.com) – and Tony Mize of Septcarres (www.Septcarres.com), teamed up to create a space that fuses traditional Mexican accents while maintaining the integrity of the Hecht Warehouse’s raw structure. The airy space with high ceilings features pops of bold colors including deep blues, earthy greens, warm oranges, and bright yellows, walls and flooring adorned with talavera tiles, and three large vibrant and original murals from DC-based graffiti artist and pioneer CHELOVE coexist amongst a backdrop of repurposed cargo containers, while still embracing rustic elements including the original warehouse columns. In Mexico the color green represents hope and Mindful Restaurant Group’s hope is that through their green door guests will find the perfect place to connect and enjoy the spirit of Mexico right here in the heart of Northeast Washington DC.
