Thanks to Captain Easychord for sending last night around 6pm:

“Currently a line to get in to the hottest club of 2018: Trader Joe’s. They have a “bouncer” working the door, letting people in one at a time… Just need a velvet rope to be official, I think…”

Ed. Note: I support the enthusiasm and would also wait in lines through fire and ice for my delicious, delicious mini tacos.

Thanks to AH for sending over the weekend:

“Pictured is a long line of people waiting for Maydan to open on this very frigid night. What’s interesting is that you can actually make reservations at Maydan… I guess people like the food so much they are hoping to still get seated without a rez.”

Maydan’s website says:

“We want you to have a different approach to dining: one that’s about the food, but also the love, respect, and traditions that go into each dish. Our food tells the story of our own travels, from Tangier to Tehran and Batumi to Beirut, but it also tells the stories of voices that often go unheard. We were invited to sit and break bread with strangers, listening to stories and learning tried and true techniques. We felt welcomed, embraced, and valued, quickly becoming part of their families. We want you to feel that every time you visit.

When you enter our town square–our “Maydān”–we want you to feel a sense of wonder. We want you to forget what you know and be ready to explore. And we’ll be there with you for every bite. You’ll feel like you’ve met new friends–a new family–who will guide you through the square to a table full of dishes. Dips, spreads, salads, condiments, roasted and grilled meats, and seafood coming together in unison. Just remember, there is no wrong way to go about this.

The centerpiece of every table is the bread, which we make to order in Maydān’s clay ovens. It is an accumulation of everything we love about the regions we focus on: bread brings the meal together and bread brings people together. We want you to use your hands, making the bread your utensil. Share with your neighbor, break bread with your family and friends.

See you in our Maydān soon. We’ll be waiting.”

You can see their menu here.

Ed. Note: I support the enthusiasm. The early word on Maydan is very, very, very good.

1528 U Street, NW

The Press opened up on U Street back in 2013. They have other locations around town including a new spot at the Wharf and a new location in Adams Morgan. Chris reports:

“When I went to pick up my dry cleaning at The Press location on U St. NW last night, there was a sign on the door saying the location was closing as of Dec. 31. Not a ton of notice, as I’d dropped something off just last Friday and there was no such sign!

I just called them (needed to call about a missing sweater anyway) and double-checked, and they’re indeed closing that location on Sunday.”
