Thanks to all who passed on the sad news from The Pinch:
“They say all good things must come to an end… Sadly after nearly 8 great years The Pinch will be closing it’s doors. We’ve enjoyed our time spent here in Columbia Heights and getting to know our neighbors and friends and would love to see you all before we go! Our last night will be Tuesday 10/22/19!“

Update from Rock and Roll Hotel: “December and January are notoriously slow. We have national acts confirmed that cannot yet be announced. Not sure where this rumor is coming from, but it is false and they are misinformed.
NYE 2020 goes on sale at Noon Today which was already scheduled. Our normal programming of rooftop open and 2nd floor DJs are all in place.”
As of 12:10pm they just added to their calendar:
“November 29, 2019 @ 8:00 am – January 4, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
DC Djs – 2nd Floor – Free
Rock & Roll Hotel’s legendary dance floor keeps moving and shaking with a wide range of Top 40, anthems, and dance hits brought to you by some of DC’s finest Djs! 2ND FLOOR | FREE | 10PM – 3AM | 21+”
OK, I’m not saying it’s time to freak out right now but I’m not saying stay perfectly calm either. Because this is odd. I got a tip that Rock and Roll Hotel could be closing by the end of the year. The tipster has a very good record but was only 50/50 on this. So keep that in mind. At any rate back in 2013 we first noted that the building was listed for sale. I hadn’t heard much since then. But then the tipster wrote in. And now is the curious part. Read More
