Washington, DC

What an incredibly cool find by plansornoplans:

“Lying, thinking
Last night
How to find my soul a home
Where water is not thirsty
And bread loaf is not stone
I came up with one thing
And I don’t believe I’m wrong
That nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone. – Maya Angelou”


Thanks to Lissy for sending from Saturday night:

“We spotted what we discovered was this newly married couple a few tables over. People had been sending them glasses of champagne with one couple offering to buy them a bottle to take home. Here is a video as they got up to leave. The entire restaurant clapped for them when they got up to leave. It was heartwarming.”

Oh my goodness a magnificent, and desperately needed, update about Saint Vincent coming to the old union drinkery/sundevich space at 3212-3216 Georgia Ave NW in the Park View. Co-owner Peyton Sherwood (along with partner Frederick Uku) tells me that they’ll be opening up a retail shop there in the next few weeks (before a proper opening is suitable.) We can expect the space to feature a wine list that highlights small producers from all over the world plus cheese and charcuterie. People will be able to pick out their favorites online a la carte or buy baskets they put together. You can follow their progress on their Instagram page here. And of course we’ll update when the retail shop is live and of course when it’s safe to do so, when the proper opening occurs.

Check out a taste from that sweet window at night too: Read More

The following awesomeness was sent to us from a Facebook restaurant/industry page:

“I have friends who are looking for a person named Seth who worked at Impala in Aug 2015. (specifically Aug 30th) Seth was their server that day. It was their unlikely first date and they have strong memories of Seth shaping the event.

They are getting married next spring (Pandemic Pending). And would like to extend an invite if he’s interested.

This is silly.
But also serious.
Because life is dumb.
Who knows Seth?
Is Seth here?


And from an email: “Reaching out to share some exciting additions to our ThinkFoodGroup pick-up and delivery options.

Bodegas – Starting today we will operate “Bodegas” out of our Beefsteak locations in Foggy Bottom and Dupont, adding an additional one at Jaleo DC on Monday.

These markets are intended to connect the community to staple items such as eggs, milk and flour along with household goods like cleaning solutions, paper towels and hand sanitizer, all of which have become scarce during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Read More
