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

2012 9th Street, NW

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

I spoke with the owner to make sure it was indeed closing for a renovation and not a “renovation”. Fortunately it is indeed a proper renovation, they are “integrating one of the retail bays that’s under the rolldown door.” If all goes well they’ll reopen September 18th. Stay tuned.
