From a press release:
“Drink the District, a local food- and beverage-inspired event company, announced today they will host this year’s Rock the Core Cider Festival on the future site of MRP Realty’s (MRP) planned Edgewood mixed-use development Bryant Street, at 680 Rhode Island Ave in Northeast Washington, D.C. The two-day, annual cider-tasting event will be held on Friday, October 27, and Saturday, October 28.
“Our annual event brings together cider-lovers of all backgrounds to commence the holiday season over a shared fall tradition,” said Steuart Martens, Founder and CEO, Drink the District. “The festival is always held in a growing, attractive Metro-accessible area to expose residents to a new part of the city. We think attendees will really enjoy the Edgewood neighborhood, with Metro’s Red Line station at Rhode Island Avenue less than a five-minute walk from the festival grounds.”
Uniting the District’s cider lovers and fall enthusiasts, Rock the Core will feature a curated selection of regional cideries and breweries. The pop-up festival will offer over 100+ ciders, craft beers and wines onsite with three 3-hour sessions of unlimited samples. While sipping and exploring fall’s best variety of apple flavors, attendants will be treated to top D.C.-based food trucks, a local artisan market, live entertainment, lawn games and Ford’s Built Ford Tough Toughest Tailgate. Additionally, there will be a retail store location on-site so attendees can purchase the beverages they’ve tasted to take home. (more…)

Original GDoN post can be seen: here.
The original listing can be seen here: here.
Although only on the market for eleven days, the listing underwent a price reduction from the original $549,000. to $535,000. This quick improvement had its desired effect of catching the attention of presumably more than one interested buyer, sending the settled price relatively close to the original ask (at net $542,000.)
So far into 2017, there have been a total of 23 sales of fee simple houses in the Edgewood neighborhood, which overlaps the legal subdivision of Brookland in NE DC. The neighborhood is within blocks of higher priced Bloomingdale, as well as Red line Metro. (more…)
