Link roundup

CityStream checks out SOVA and does a nice write up of the coffee shop/wine bar's many favorable attributes.

Greater Greater Washington hosted a chat with DC State Board of Education Member Pat Mara who is one of the leading candidates for the At-large Council seat that was vacated when Kwame Brown became Council Chair.  Of note to H Streeters, Mara said "I support Street Cars :)" in a response to a question about DC's most imporant infrastructure investments.  

DCMud has a development update on NoMa.  We're excited about the restaurants from Chef Gillian Clark and Chef Todd Gray.

PeoplesDistrict has this nice piece on ANC6C Commissioner Anne Phelps, who represents the neighborhood north of H Street between 1st & 7th Streets NE, does policy work for Councilmember Tommy Wells on smart growth, transportation, and the environment, and is an all-around great person and neighbor. 

TastingTable has a good write up of Church & State (1236 H St) and includes their menu of classic cocktails.

DCStyleisReal checked out Fruit Bat and had some good cocktails, but found the space, especially near the swinging door in front of the bar, a bit cramped.

The Washington Post touts Logic, Luck, and Love at the Atlas (1333 H St) for Valentine's Day and joins in our recommendation for a preshow dinner at the Atlas Room or Liberty Tree and after dinner drinks at Church & State.  Buy tickets here.
