Everybody enjoying their snow day? (Except for those of you who work for places that don't close, like, say, daily newspapers.) This was a nice little snow, but I remain spoiled by the ghost of 2009-10, the winter that this snow lover will always remember. (This Nats Park shot is from Feb. 7, 2010, in between the two mammoth snowstorms. It was a pretty different neighborhood that I traisped around in getting photos....)
On to the tidbits:
* SNOW CANCELLATIONS: The BID's Mardi Gras celebration planned for today has been cancelled (except for beads still being handed out), and the Van Ness Elementary fundraiser at Nando's has been rescheduled for March 24. (But the latter gives me an excuse to mention that I have finally built a Van Ness project page!)
* SNOW CANCELLATIONS/CSX: Today was supposed to be the hearing on the Committee of 100's move for an injunction to prevent CSX from moving forward on the Virginia Avenue Tunnel until the lawsuit itself is heard, but Mother Nature has forced a postponement, to a date to be determined. But you can still read the Post's preview piece on the hearing.
* TRAPEZE SCHOOL MOVE: It had started to seem like the Trapeze School's long-planned move to the southwest corner of Spooky Park at New Jersey and Tingey wasn't necessarily a given, but HillNow reports that the school has now confirmed the move, likely to happen this fall. In the meantime, there's a zoning case to be heared in March to allow them to stay in their current spot during this year, while their new home is prepped.
* SECURITY THEATER: The photo of construction outside the Nats Park centerfield gate at right that I posted a few weeks back brought much speculation, but it's now confirmed that the work was/is to install magnetometers (WaPo).
* CHANGE AT WILLIE'S: Eater DC reports that both chef Rock Harper and his brother/general manager Ed Howard have left Willie's Brew & Que. No hints on why.
* THE GLOBAL REACH OF SNARK: Technically off-topic, but I learned last week that tossing out snarky comments on Twitter can sometimes have a reach beyond just my followers. (See paragraph #5.) Thank heavens I spelled "artisanal" correctly.

the magnetometers are going to be right on the edge of public space? i'm surprised C100 doesn't have something to say about *that*

It's a shame that Rock Harper and Ed Howard left Willie's after having stuck out the long delay in the opening. I have no idea where that restaurant group is in the Chapter 11, but that can't be an easy situation under which to operate a restaurant. Nevertheless, I thought the food at Willie's was excellent. Hopefully it doesn't take a step back.

OT: A box from Ikea for an I Street Capitol Quarter address got delivered to my house by mistake today (mixed in with some boxes that contain items that may actually be of interest to JDLand readers--more on that later).

So, if you are panicking about a missing box, never fear, my office boy is slated to deliver it on Thursday.


JD says: (2/19/15 9:26 AM)
So.... I will share this here in the comments first, where I can be sure only five or six people will see it. :-)

It needs to be said up front that I did not create this, nor did I commission it--it is all Mr. JDLand's handiwork (probably conceived in between bites at 100 Montaditos). It is offered with tongue most firmly in cheek:



As long as you don't take it seriously, it's pretty dang funny.

If you want one (S/M/X/XL), let me know. $12, and that includes free delivery if you are in the JDLand boundaries or close by. :-)

"chef Rock Harper and his brother/general manager Ed Howard have left Willie's Brew & Que. No hints on why."

Here's a hint: cerveza but replace the 'z' with an 'r'.


JES says: (2/20/15 3:09 PM)
I really hope the food quality doesn't suffer at Willie's. I rather like the place as-is.

btw - love the shirt. Absolutely brilliant.
