4th at Tingey, Looking North-Northeast (see more)

I wrote a few weeks ago about the latest plans to use two acres on the western part of the Florida Rock site along the Anacostia River as a "brew garden" and neighborhood park while waiting for the project's later phases to get underway--and I also wrote about the muted reception the idea got from ANC 6D after a somewhat nebulous presentation by developer MRP Realty and representatives of Bardo.
Now the Bardo folks, who already operate a similar brew garden in Northeast, are trying to raise $200,000 to "do this thing deluxe," to create what it calls Bardo Riverfront, described as "100,000 square feet of BeerDisneyLand." This would include flush toilets instead of porta-potties, a bike shop, a kiddie playground, and "the largest dog park in DC," as well as parking for 500 bicycles, cornhole, food trucks, outdoor movies "projected onto a floating screen in the river," and other ideas.
Donations of $20 now will get you four pints of beer when it opens, or four pitchers for a $50 donation, or numerous other options up to a $5,000 donation allowing you to take over the entire place on any Monday-Thursday when the Nats aren't playing. If you don't have money to contribute, you could donate wood trips, or "big tree logs to make into totem poles."
More details as they become available....

And they have already raised a whole $50 against their $200,000 goal! Not sure what that means, but an interesting data point!

"Nebulous" is a good word for their plans. "Give me lots of money and I'll do cool stuff!" isn't a business plan, it's just somewhat... juvenile. It also didn't work on Bladensburg Road, where their crowdfunding campaign raised <$5K of the $110K goal:

Not that I don't like what they've done on Bladensburg, and not that I haven't chipped in for previous crowdfunded breweries.

Walk across South Capitol and ask our SW neighbors if they think adults drinking outdoors is in the best interest of their community, A community with serious concerns about under-aged youth drinking.

This kind of venue continues to be an issue for major league baseball and their search for a family friendly all-star stadium location decision. Adults drinking in a field is more of the same does not help Nationals Park.

Flush toilets and not porta-potties in an open field, clever but no change for the view from the bridge.

I have doubts about the connection between this type of setup and underage drinking in an adjacent neighborhood.

The issue of the connection between the type of development near the stadium and the location of the MLB All Star Game is moot if the 2018 rumors turn out to be true. Regardless, aside from just the politics associated to awarding the game to one city vs. another, the reasoning for Washington failing to be awarded the 2016 or 2017 game seem to have more to do with the overall lack of development (i.e. numerous empty spaces and the unsightly "Monument valley") near the stadium rather than the type of projections making progress.

I don't really have an opinion on the Bardo beer garden per se, but there's no reason why the space they envision can't be conducive to a family friendly environment (especially as a base of operations during the All Star Game weekend). For instance, folks drink during the Friday night concerts at Yards Park, and I don't think people perceive that to be an environment hostile to families (except of course when all those drunk kids from SW are running amok).


Ed says: (4/7/15 7:48 AM)
Should there be any doubts about under age drinking as a problem suggest those doubters meet with community residents between south Capitol and 1st SW. the last time this project came up, residents in that neighborhood signed a protest petition and testify before ABRA about their concerns with teenage drinking.


Ed says: (4/7/15 7:56 AM)
It's is great news that we have been selected for an all star location. But under developed lots were never an issue for Major League Baseball. On several occasions, National owners have mentioned open air drinking enterprises as a problem for the stadium image.
