“To All DMV Residents, Dacha Customers and Fans,
An article was published yesterday regarding our business, and we wish to set the record straight.
Most importantly, there is an automatic service charge on all bills at Dacha, but every single dollar brought in through this method is returned to Dacha’s employees. Because this “automatic gratuity” or “service charge” is imposed on all guest checks, we have the flexibility of using this money to benefit all employees, including back of the house and support staff, who typically do not share in traditional tips. (more…)
UPDATE: See Dacha’s response here.
“In the complaint, filed in early June, TriMark Adams-Burch alleges the business owes over $277,453 in outstanding bills and accuses the restaurateurs of “fraud, ill-will, recklessness, wantonness, oppressiveness, and willful disregard of Adams-Burch’s rights with evil motive or actual malice.”
But that’s not all: (more…)

Statement from the Family of Berner “Bud” Johnson (July 27, 1970 – May 19, 2019):
“This past Sunday, we said goodbye to our beloved husband, father, brother, son and friend Bud. He was alone when he was assaulted and viciously beaten by a group of men outside his favorite neighborhood restaurant on Wednesday, May 15. We made the incredibly difficult decision to remove him from life support four days later. His sudden departure from our lives and the violent way in which it occurred leaves a hole in our hearts that will never be filled.
Bud had a big heart. He was a great family man and loved nothing more than spending time with his wife and children. At home, at work and with friends, he always put the concerns of others before his own.
As a result, Bud had an extensive and loving network of friends in the Senate, on his softball team, his son’s Little League baseball team and throughout the Washington, DC, community. Bud loved his neighborhood, which he and Diane moved into nine years ago seeking a change in their lifestyle. Along with their son Bo, they have lived in and around the DC community and became a part of it.
The family wishes to thank the first responders from both the Metropolitan Police Department and the DC Fire and EMS Department who tended to Bud immediately following his assault. Because of their efforts and success in reviving Bud, dozens of family members and friends were able to say goodbye to Bud before he passed.
The family is also grateful to the staff at MedStar Washington Hospital Center who cared for Bud, keeping him comfortable during his final days while accommodating the constant stream of visitors who filled the halls outside the ICU. (more…)
