Washington, DC

3001 Sherman Ave NW, at the corner of Columbia

Thanks to Amanda for sending an update on the former Stop & Go market space: “They are steadily renovating and I have seen them holding capoeira classes a few times as I walked past. A new banner just went up that says something like Brazilian American Cultural Center. It says grand opening August 24th. Samba, Portuguese, Capoeira, cooking, film…looks interesting!” Read More

A reader reports:

“I live on the 600 block of Newton Pl NW and we heard several gunshots last night. It was around 11:30-midnight at the intersection of Newton Pl NW and 6th St NW. The police came and sectioned off the end of the street with yellow tape shortly thereafter and took someone into custody. Have you heard anything about this? We are curious as to what happened but haven’t seen anything online.”


3400 Georgia Ave, NW

Wowza. I’ve been getting lots of inquiries about what’s going on at the old Kraken Axes (RIP Murry’s) space on Georgia. Well, holy cow. They should be soft opening as early as tomorrow or possibly this weekend with a grand opening coming later this month. Stay tuned for confirmation on that but in the meantime, lots of info from a press release:

HOOK HALL, named in salute of a legendary pirate, this new venue is inspired by the same pull of the sea and sense of adventure buccaneers are known to embrace. Enhanced with design elements and accents reminiscent of the oceans on which he sailed, Hook Hall has reimagined an industrial 13,500 square-foot venue to offer a unique, multi-flex space in the burgeoning Park View/Petworth community. By day it serves as a neighborhood gathering place serving coffee and pastries and affording comfortable meeting and working space. By evening its 40-foot long bar, with a 32-tap system, turns into a tavern ready to serve as a local watering hole and celebration spot. Read More
