Big news from Frozen Tropics this morning:
“Shawafel owner Alberto Sissi confirmed to me that he will close his original location at 1322 H Street NE on Dec. 23. He plans to reopen the shop at a new downtown location (818 18th Street NW) in the spring. Alberto is also currently exploring the possibility of opening a location near Eastern Market.”

Last week I spoke about the resurgence of Ethiopian restaurants with word of Infusion coming to the former Chief Ike’s space. I didn’t realize the Quara that opened on H Street was the same Quara from Adams Morgan:
“Detectives with the Metropolitan Police Department’s First District seek the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect in reference to a Burglary Two offense which occurred in the 1400 block of Maryland Avenue, Northeast on Saturday, December 9, 2017.
At approximately 12:40 am, a suspect gained entry to an establishment at the listed location. Once inside, the suspect attempted to open the cash register but was unsuccessful. (more…)
“Current closure- the entire 6th Street block on H Street, NE. A suspicious package dropped off in Starbucks. Apartment building and businesses evacuated on the south side of the street- currently watching from Whole Foods.
Bomb dog went in and came out, no uptick after the dog came out so I think I think it’s going to be cleared but still waiting.
Update 12:25pm: “Sure, we’re cleared to go back in!” (more…)

With all the news about the return of the Christmas bar, and the success of Game of Thrones bar, I’m really surprised there hasn’t been more buzz about The Dark Side bar (Star Wars-themed) happening on H Street right now!”
Dark Side’s website says:
“Attention all space nerds, distant travelers, and creatures of the night. You are invited to explore the dark side of your city in a truly immersive galactic experience. Dark forces are taking over New York City, Washington DC, and Hollywood California for a very limited time. Come experience the power, fury and the truly macabre environment of The Dark Side Bar.
We will be hosting nightly events and parties including The intergalactic burlesque show featuring performers from many different planets. Themed dance and dj nights, trivia, alien speed dating and games of chance.
Our cocktail menu boasts 6 custom cocktails from different parts of the Galaxy that are sure to give you the feels.
Patrons are encouraged to come in costume to blend in but not required to do so. Walk ups are welcome but reservations are highly encouraged to guarantee admission. Reservation are $33 per person and include two of our signature custom cocktails per person. Walk ins will be $40 per person. We are offering a very creative and “Galaxy inspired” menu of small bites and sharing plates onsite. Fans can expect to see tentacles on sticks (soy bbq glazed octopus skewers) Bantha Fodder (vegan sushi egg rolls) and other interesting bites. The food will vary day to day as we attempt to keep the program interesting and truly galactic!
Book now before it’s too late, we have a good feeling about this!”
Anyone been yet?
And regarding this building – Frozen Tropics reports:
“At the moment Mythology’s 2nd floor lounge space is a Star Wars inspired pop up called The Darkside Bar, and the pop up is scheduled to stick around through January 15th. Once The Darkside Bar pop up concludes, Mythology’s colorful clouds and signature fries will head upstairs.
A fast casual concept called Clean Eatz will take over the 1st floor.”

It was exactly a year ago today that we learned that the H Street, NE Popeyes had closed for remodeling. Then this past August we said they were about to reopen. Well, we were wrong. In the words of the great Glen’s Garden Market owner Mea Culpa. However, our man on H Street, Grant, tells us:
“the wood is down in front of Popeye’s H Street. TVs are on, registers are running. Opening seems imminent.”
See for yourself and STAY TUNED.
