Flying Dog Brewery put together this video of scenes from the Festival.
HStreetDC reported that Musa Ulusan has changed the name of his pizza restaurant, which is to open at 1387 H Street to Slice of Life. This is the corner spot that the owner previously considered using for an Angelico La Pizzaria and later planned to name Desperados. HStreetDC said he also plans to open a restaurant next door to Taylor in the old Birdland space at 1118 H Street. Details on this new spot remain uncertain, but the owner discussed possibly doing food from his hometown of New Orleans.
East City Art shared news of the latest show at City Gallery (804 H St): Maria Margarita Panas's Action Painting. This Abstract Painting exhibition is being hung this week and City Gallery will host an opening reception this Saturday, October 2, from 6:30 - 9:30 p.m.
The Washingtonian included several H Street businesses in it's Best of Capitol Hill feature. Under the Dining Section: Granville Moore's, Liberty Tree, and Ethiopic are touted under "Cozy and Casual," Sidamo is a featured "Weekend Brunch" spot, and Taylor Gourmet and Dangerously Delicioous Pies are both highlighted "Quick Bites." In the Fun After Dark category, Rock and Roll Hotel is the place to "Discover a Hot Band," Biergarten Haus wins for "Sip Big-Gulp Beers," The Pug is "Good for Groups," Stick Rice is "Fun and Games," Palace of Wonders is tops for "People-Watching," H Street Country Club" is "Something Different," and Little Miss Whiskey's wins for "Dance Party." Kudos to the Washingtonian for recognzing so many of our great businesses. They perhaps understandably missed Argonaut for its brunch, which was and will be delciious when they have their kitchen back. Star and Shamrock is a great place for a sandwich or to see casual live music. Sova has great bluegrass and craft cocktails. And Souk is great for fun ethnic food. Washingtonian may have to come back and do one for H Street alone with all the great new businesses we have...
