UPDATE: “At around 10pm last night, an individual coming from a nearby establishment punched and broke one of our windows. He injured himself and tried to flee the scene. MPD and EMS were quick to arrive and we were told the individual would be arrested after receiving medical attention. We would like to thank our DC Fire Department for coming by today to thoroughly clean the sidewalks with high-pressured water hoses.” – 801 Ownership

Thanks to a reader for sending: “Was just at gaslight and Sunday is [was] the last day. They are closing for a renovation.”

From an email:

Columbia Room (124 Blagden Alley NW) is set to debut the first tasting menu created by newly appointed Beverage Manager Paul Taylor on Tuesday, August 6. The menu, titled “So Bad, It’s Good,” pays homage to once-lowbrow drinks with high-low mashup creations that are simultaneously nostalgic and forward-thinking.
