3632 Georgia Ave, NW
Ed. Note: Rejoice textdoc et al, after a long and bloody neighborhood boundary battle I’m ceding back the 3600 of Georgia Ave to Park View. I haven’t anymore fight left in me and at this point I don’t want to confuse folks. So there you have it, I surrender. I surrender.
Thanks to Dan for solving the mystery at the (new/old) Marrakech Moroccan Restaurant space. Not sure what happened to Marrakech but it looks like mr. braxton Bar&Kitchen is taking over the space: (more…)
Thanks to Daniel for sending: “This delightful new mural made my morning. It’s on the wall of Mister Rotisserie, a corner store and carry-out at Georgia and Park opposite the old Cadillacs Special lot.”

Thanks to Jes for sending the above on Friday:
“Not sure what’s going on at the Moroccan place but some layers have been peeled back. I think it’s still going to be the Moroccan place, but they gutted the inside too.”
It appears to be a banana?!?!?
