So long story short – I got a flat tire on my bicycle and was headed to the gas station near Politics and Prose and stumbled upon this awesome, awesome little ADU (accessory dwelling unit) which I assume was once a regular garage like the rest of the houses on the block have. Love it.

From Civil Cigar Lounge:
“We hate to have to write this, but we need to let the Civil Lounge family know, that this Thursday, September 26, 2019 will be the final night of service at Civil Cigar Lounge. Over the last 7 years we have had the pleasure of creating one of the best cigar lounges for our guests. We have had some exceptional staff, that provided good, comfortable service to a growing clientele both new-comers and regulars. We will truly miss that interaction.
The Chevy Chase Pavilion had chosen to go in a different direction after losing other service and retail tenants over the last two years. We fought to stay as long as we could, using all legal means at our disposal, but our final hearing didn’t go our way. So we are at the end of this particular road.
We are exploring new opportunities to bring Civil back within the District of Columbia. Read More

Sad news up in Chevy Chase. Thanks to Marina for sending word: “Full of Beans Children’s Boutique is gone. Shame. Had really cute clothing for babies to age 8. Woman-owned, independent boutique, employed lots of locals and cared about the community. Generations of kids were shopped for there!” Read More

From a press release:
“Husband-wife duo Jena and Matt Carr of Little Red Fox will open Sugar Fox, a neighborhood ice cream shop and bakery, this weekend, in the Forest Hills neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The shop will offer house-made and customizable treats including ice cream by the scoop, milkshakes, cakes, and cupcakes.
Ed. Note: I guess this finally settles the neighborhood name dispute.
