“I stopped by the new Heller & Wilde on Friday night, formerly Bayou then briefly Alfred House?? It was awesome! It is a prohibition inspired bar with modern twists on the classics. Great 20’s inspired cocktail list and thoughtfully delicious food. I think it was a soft opening this past weekend, but thinking it should be fully open this week? I also really liked their communal tables outside on the front patio!”

I’m hoping I can find some feedback and direction with an issue that has been eating at me.
I was really excited that a Bluestone Lane was coming to DC (I always make a pit stop at one when I’m in NYC). The DC location is attached to the West End library. I have gone a few times. It’s delicious.
My general understanding of public libraries is that they provide a critical free resource to the community, namely a safe *free* learning environment. In the times I’ve spent in DC libraries, I’ve also noticed that people experiencing homelessness can find a little reprieve in these buildings. So here’s my issue: (more…)
