From an email:

“Bodymass Gym opened its doors just over 2 years ago in the Courthouse neighborhood of Arlington. We have an amazing group of members who have helped us grow rapidly and we are proud to announce the opening of our first DC location at the corner of Georgia Ave and Harvard in NW DC. We are excited be part of the up and coming Park View neighborhood and bring high quality training to an area that deserves more fitness offerings.

Bodymass is not like your average gym that only offers cookie-cutter, over-crowded group exercise classes. (more…)

Thanks to Amanda for sending:

“A few weeks ago you posted about the Hilltop on Sherman Avenue becoming Napoli Pasta Bar. This week, I noticed that they were open so I tried it out. I was really impressed! The owner previously worked at Café Milano and Lupo Verde and you can tell that he knows his pasta! The pasta, charcuterie and cocktails were delicious and the staff was friendly without being pushy or intrusive. I never went to the Hilltop so I don’t know how many changes were made, but the inside is beautifully decorated. There is a table made out of a Vespa scooter with a working headlight, which is pretty sweet. The waiter said that they have a happy hour discount on their beer and wine. Oh, and there is free bread and olive oil! I am a longtime resident of Sherman Avenue and I am excited (and a little surprised) to see a restaurant like this pop up on our street, so bring your friends, bring your kids and check it out!”
