Oof, more painful restaurant news this morning – Washingtonian reports:

From a press release:
“On Friday, April 12, Rumble, the boxing-inspired group fitness brand, will open its first Washington, D.C. location at 2001 M Street NW (between Dupont and West End).
Rumble‘s signature 45-minute, 10-round strength and conditioning class is based on the sweet science of boxing and has become the nation’s hottest group fitness concept. Rumble operates multiple locations in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia and, in addition to the new D.C. studio, is expanding to Palo Alto, Chicago, Boston and Brooklyn.
Helluva way to wake up? Spotted at 22nd and N NW. Not sure the best way to get graffiti off shingles, but I’m guessing it won’t be cheap.”

A reader reports:
“I happened to run into construction workers building the Rumble Boxing Gym location on M Street who said it SHOULD be open mid-April.”
“Rumble is here for the people, who put in work and want to have some fun in the process…whether you are searching for a strong body, lean legs, toned abs, a mean uppercut, or to find your confidence. (more…)

Thanks to Lindsey for sending:
“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!”
