4th at M, Looking South-Southwest (see more)

I shouldn't be writing this at lunch time:
* OATH OFFICIAL: Tomorrow (Thursday, April 19), Oath Pizza is having its official grand opening, with half-price pizzas as well with samples and swag, from 11 am to 10 pm. Address is 110 M St., SE, next to Bethesda Bagels.
* TRUCKEROO RETURNS: Friday, April 20, brings the return of monthly summer food truck festival Truckeroo, once again being held at the Bullpen at Half and M Streets, SE. Hours are shorter than they used to be, though, with the doors opening at 4 pm and running until 11 pm.
* FIVE GUYS RETURNS: Commenter ZinNY reports that a sign on the door at Five Guys says it will reopen on Monday, April 23. And with milkshakes, finally.
* NOT FOR EATING: One non-food tidbit, which is that reader Bryan Rodda reports that the Sprint store is now open at 4th and M, SE.
* PHOTOS OF THE NEWBIES: I was out amongst the hordes on Saturday, and got a few photos of the newest arrivals in the neighborhood, on a beautiful day for al fresco dining. (I also got lots of other photos, but have been distracted from posting about them. Soon.) If I may actually express two opinions, I'll note that Declaration's front bar is a great tableau for 1st Street, and All-Purpose's facade and outdoor areas are lovely (and clearly not a secret).

Is it me, or is something just weird about that Five Guys repeatedly closing? I'm more than happy to have a restaurant take the time to do renovations or improvements, but isn't this the second time in two years?


conngs0 says: (4/18/18 5:33 PM)
Yep. I also couldn't tell the difference when it reopened the first time. I'm also sure it was more substantive than I'm making it seem, but it looked like they just moved the furniture around. Looking forward to milkshakes though!!


sameter says: (4/19/18 8:20 AM)
I thought I read earlier the closures were financially related, maybe it was just speculation, I dont recall. Either way I'll take having a 5guys back up and running.


JD says: (4/19/18 8:57 AM)
Look for the Peet's coffee sign to be going up soon at New Jersey and M (approved permit).

Who wants to start a pool to bet on which building in the neighborhood gets the Chase branch? link

This is from the blog that shall not be named but this would be a tremendous benefit to the DC area.

Not sure how many people this will affect, but they just reopened the sidewalk on the east side of South Capitol Street next to 2 I street! Much more convenient than waiting for the 90 second light.

I was at Justin's Cafe last night and someone mentioned that Justin might be selling the bar. Any truth to this? I can't imagine he would sell now.


JD says: (4/20/18 9:51 AM)
I haven't heard that, but he's been in that spot for nearly 10 years--he might decide it's time to move on. (Though of course he still has the Big Stick.)


Ampersand says: (4/20/18 12:23 PM)
@Packinblackandred - yay!!


jdc says: (4/20/18 12:36 PM)
re: Justin's, I assume he's renting that space and I imagine the rent has been on the upward trajectory lately. Maybe that location's size/popularity is no longer sufficient to afford the rent and make a big enough profit?


NavyYardNittany says: (4/20/18 3:44 PM)
Someone close to that situation told me last week that Justin has moved to Charleston and is basically out of the picture. Family member, believe his uncle, is running things. Third-hand but this person has some details, seemed legit. (insert shrug emoji here).
