Thanks to Kelley for passing on. This will be their second move. Before the 925 Rhode Island Ave NW, Olde City was located at 9th and N Street, NW (where Espita Mezcaleria is today.) The Rhode Island Ave location is where the new Banneker High School will be located. Updates when they find a new space.
