From an email:
“On April 15, local hospitality innovators Eric and Ian Hilton will officially debut Skybox (1400 14th Street NW), their new 2,490-square-foot rooftop bar that boasts a stunning, nearly 360-degree panoramic view of Logan Circle and beyond. Located atop the brothers’ popular Players’ Club — an ode to 70s and 80s video games, music and culture — Skybox is also a nostalgic nod to the D.C. of yesteryear. (more…)

Not a lot to go on but before I get scooped by someone else – I hear Bar Pilar may be for sale and based on the silence from my queries it seems very likely that it either has or is close to happening. Updates when we learn more.
Ed. Note: Bar Pilar is a neighborhood gem and I hope, if this is true, it doesn’t change too drastically.
Thanks to everyone who passed on this note in front of the Q Street Barbies. The Barbie Pond themselves responded best on their Instagram:
“Think of the Children!”
Our earliest recording of the Barbies was back in April 2014. Suffice it to say they have grown in popularity since then and literally become a neighborhood landmark. Long live the barbies and their cheeky (pun intended), good-natured take on holidays and events of the day. They put a smile on my face every time I see them!

Thanks to Doug Landry for sending a peek inside (below) the Framebridge, “Custom Frames | Custom Cut, Crafted, and Built, coming to 14th and T St, NW:
“We have reached peak 14th street.
Just in case you want to bang out a quick pod while picking out your artisanal mats…”
Framebridge with the good sense of humor replies:
“Good news–it’s probably even *more* 14th Street than that.”
Anyway, I popped by on Saturday and was told they’ll be opening on Tuesday and to stand by for a grand opening party too. (more…)
