Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

News has gotten a little sparse of late, though there's suddenly plenty of little updates and whatnot, some that I've tweeted (and some that I haven't). Sorry that this is a bit of a monster post, but that just means you need to read it all carefully!
* Redistricting: With the redistricting committee's proposed map of redrawn boundaries coming out no later than their meeting at 1 pm on Thursday, news has begun to trickle out of what it will look like. Mike DeBonis reported on Monday that any part of the city west of the Anacostia River being moved to Ward 8 is "off the table," since the split neighborhood of Fairlawn is expected to be moved entirely into Ward 8, which would satisfy the ward's population requirement. (He also lays out some of the other "on the table" moves.) In an "op-ed" today at The Hill is Home, Tommy Wells says that Ward 6's new eastern boundary may be 17th Street NE and SE, moving Hill East and its landmarks (RFK, Eastern High School, Eliot-Hine Middle School, and Reservation 13) into Ward 7. After the committee votes on its map Thursday, there will be a public hearing at 6 pm on June 1, before the entire council votes on the plan on June 7.
* Retail: The big International Council of Shopping Centers' REcon convention is underway in Vegas, and the Post's Jonathan O'Connell is tweeting all the DC-related retailer news, including that Mayor Gray and members of the city council had lunch on Monday with representatives of Forest City, who gave a presentation on The Yards. Will there be an announcement soon on things getting started at the Boilermaker Shops, as Forest City said there would be a few weeks ago? A Post feature on Capitol Hill restaurateur Xavier Cervera mentioned that he has "deals in the works for 400-seat and 140-seat restaurants on the waterfront," the first of which would seem to be the sportsbar rumored for the Boilermaker space. The rumblings below the surface that the official Boilermaker announcement is coming soon continue to be strong (with any opening being at least a year away, since there's a lot of exterior work to be done to the building), but there's been no official announcement of this or any other Boilermaker lease.
* In an Examiner article about Wegman's being wooed for DC's Walter Reed site, it's mentioned that Michael Stevens of the Capitol Riverfront BID and city officials are meeting with AMC Theaters to discuss potential locations. The article describes a possible spot as "First Street, south of M Street and adjacent to Nationals Park." I'm a little skeptical of "First Street", mainly because the big empty lot along First (Nats parking lot F), owned by Willco and slated in the past for a mixed office/residential/retail development, hasn't seemed to be in play for any movement on any development. On the other hand, there's been talk that Akridge has been interested in having a movie theater as part of its Half Street development, also south of M and adjacent to Nationals Park, and construction could be starting there late this year. Either way, nothing is firm.
* Kittehs: Are you looking to adopt a cat? How about a Market Deli-branded kitten? Some residents have captured and spayed/neutered/vaccinated two of them, estimated to be 4-6 months old, and are looking for someone to adopt them. Here's the additional information. (I would have leapt at this, but my two cats, ages 17 and 14, would kill me in my sleep if I brought home new "siblings" for them.)
And, some upcoming events to note:
* The Yards Park folks have passed along the news that the fountains are off all this week for maintenance. No water-based frolicking for you!
* The Capitol Riverfront Outdoor Movie Series gets underway this Thursday (May 26). The theme this summer is Best of the Oscars, and they're starting off with "Casablanca." Movies start at 8:45 pm (or sundown), and there will be food trucks and snacks for sale. The movies have moved back to Tingey Plaza, just south of US DOT at New Jersey and Tingey.
* Harry's Reserve Wine and Spirits at 909 New Jersey is going to be having a free "community cookout" on their courtyard on Friday, May 27 from 5 to 8 pm, and again on Saturday, May 28 from 4:30 to 8 pm. They are doing it to thank the neighborhood for the support they've received since opening. There will be free "high-end" beverage tastings in addition to grilled offerings. The owners also want to pass along that they're getting fresh shipments of a variety of cheeses this week, and that they now have 800 beers in stock.
* Ryan Zimmerman's annual "A Night at the Park" fundraiser is scheduled for June 30, benefitting his ziMS Foundation. Tickets are now on sale, and it's been announced that country star Rodney Atkins is the featured performer.
* The Zoning Commission hearing on allowing Forest City to temporarily use the second floor of the Lumber Shed building as office space has been scheduled for July 7.

Thought that area south of M and along 1st would have been the GSA building and would be a spot for the theaters (once the building comes down) but would be many many years away - so if this seems that these talks are sooner then Half St sites would be sooner rather than later....

"There will be free 'high-end' beverage tastings"

For the love of all that is holy, will you stop referring to these beverage tastings as "high-end?" What else are they gonna be? Low-end servings of Colt 45? It's like you and the liquor store are deathly afraid of being accused of contributing to the return of the unwanted folk.

Just stop it already.


JD says: (5/24/11 4:26 PM)
@SW--It's in quotes. I am quoting what they're calling it, and in fact put in quote marks to specifically make clear that that's *not* what I'm calling it. But I'd be happy to buy you a Colt 45 if it would lessen the stress and strain you're obviously feeling.

@MJM--Both the east side of 1st south of M (Yards properties) and west side are a long ways off, with Yards/east side probably even further off than west side (Willco).


MJM says: (5/24/11 8:14 PM)
Exactly, just wondering what the talks entail - sooner rather than later - Phase III for anything east of 1st/South M but gotta wonder if talks including creating magical space for AMC that doesn't exist or as you said Half St which seems logical


F says: (5/24/11 8:27 PM)
JD,

Will you be attending the redistricting meeting on Thursday? I'll be eagerly standing by for your tweets if you're so inclined. Thanks in advance.


JD says: (5/24/11 8:36 PM)
I won't be there in person, but will be watching the live stream (as anyone can, at oct.dc.gov or on dc cable channel 13). I will tweet any Near SE specific stuff. And I'm sure the entire DC Twitterverse will be all, um, atwitter. :-)


Bruce says: (5/24/11 11:26 PM)
I plan on Attending Thursday.


58Model says: (5/25/11 2:41 PM)
There used to be some "high end" beverage tastings at Normandie Liquors...but I think that was a different use of the word "high."

I'm just sayin'...
