Link roundup

Tonight is Ethiopic's (401 H St) first anniversary and they're celebrating by donating all of tonight's proceeds to a new charity they've started, which will receive 2% of proceeds going forward.  Show your support and wish them well. 

The City Paper's Best of Poll closes tonight.  Have you voted for all your local favorites yet?

City's Best has a nice piece on how Taylor Gourmet (1116 H St) came to be and has grown to other locations over time.

Capitol Bop reported that they're hearing HR-57 (816 H St) is getting very close to opening, but precisely when remains unclear.

Metro Mutts (504 H St) put out another informative monthly newsletter with deals, doggie advice, and training opportunities with Spot On Training.

DC United released their Bar & Restaurant partners guide with 15 spots across town that will show ever game.  4 of the 15, the Pug, Queen Vic, Biergarten Haus, and Khan's are on H Street, which will also be a fun place to visit before or after games while the team continues to play just a bit east of H Street at RFK.  DC United's Kyle Sheldon and Margaret Holwill have been working to pull together a shuttle to and from H Street on game days.   

WBJ reported that Chef Nick Stefanelli of Bibiania has moved to the H Street neighborhood.

EastCityArt reported that a new art gallery is coming to the H Street corridor and will be located just north of H Street on Florida Ave.  Follow the East City Art blog or on twitter for more details soon.


  1. Hopefully that shuttle for United comes together. H Street is an ideal spot for fans to hang before and after games. The walk isn't bad but 25-30 minutes of walking isn't ideal either.

  2. What's the story on Nick Stefanelli? The link seems broken but would love the lowdown.

  3. Thanks, Kiki. The link has been fixed. The story just says he and his wife bought a house just north of H Street. How long do you think we should wait to begin talking him up about how great it would be for him to open his own place just down the street from his house on H Street?

  4. i really wish the art venues that are all in trinidad would actually celebrate that they are in the neighborhood...
