Thanks to Jaqueline for sending the Buckaroos update on Friday. Ed. Note: Now the Besta sign is turned around. Back in November we reported that Buckaroos “Restaurant Serving family-style Californian food” was coming to former Besta Pizza space near Politics and Prose and Comet Ping Pong. Anyone get a preview taste?

So long story short – I got a flat tire on my bicycle and was headed to the gas station near Politics and Prose and stumbled upon this awesome, awesome little ADU (accessory dwelling unit) which I assume was once a regular garage like the rest of the houses on the block have. Love it.

From a press release:
“Husband-wife duo Jena and Matt Carr of Little Red Fox will open Sugar Fox, a neighborhood ice cream shop and bakery, this weekend, in the Forest Hills neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The shop will offer house-made and customizable treats including ice cream by the scoop, milkshakes, cakes, and cupcakes.
