It has been a great run and we would like to thank all of our customers for making it such a success. Please come by for a last meal and a toast to the future!
Cafe Ole is currently located at 4000 Wisconsin Avenue, NW. We are looking for a new home!”

“In true Glen’s fashion, our answer to everything is… beer. For the duration of the shutdown, Fed Gov employees’ first beer’s on us with their federal government ID. Special starts at 9am”

You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in D.C.

Thanks to Kevin for sending the story from WTOP:
“Scottsdale, Arizona-based Cold Stone Creamery will open its eighth Washington-area location this summer in D.C.’s Cleveland Park neighborhood.
The ice cream chain has signed a lease for 1,400 square feet at Sam’s Park & Shop shopping center at 3503 Connecticut Ave. NW. It will replace Secolari Olive Oil at the property, owned by Rockville-based Federal Realty.”
Secolari closed back in April and Petco’s last day is January 23rd (Target coming.) Cleveland Park once had a Cold Stone Creamery located at 3508 Connecticut Ave, NW. That space is becoming a Pivot Physical Therapy.

Diet Starts Monday opened up back in May. This space was an empty lot next to Marvin and turned into Blackbyrd Warehouse which was built and opened back in 2011. Then it became a Vietnamese Restaurant and Pho house (Hanoi House) in 2012, and Marvin also expanded into the upstairs space in 2012, then it briefly housed a Maketto residency before becoming Den of Thieves and then briefly The BBQ Joint.
Did anyone ever go to ‘Diet Starts Monday’?

Thanks to all who messaged. Chris reports:
“It appears that the vehicle entered the Circle from P Street, but instead of merging right, kept going straight up the Circle’s walkway, hit the fence and rolled over.”
