 Page Through from Before to After

Would any of us who came to Nats Park in the spring of 2008 have believed it would take "only" 12 seasons for the World Series to come to South Capitol Street? And yet, here we are, mere hours away from what is probably the most historic happening in the annals of {insert preferred neighborhood name here}.
And, much more so than other "big" sporting events at the ballpark, like the All-Star Game in 2018 or the NHL Winter Classic in 2015, it is likely that the neighborhood will be a big destination for people even if they have little chance of getting through the gates. There are watch parties planned at the Yards Park on for Game 3, moving to "The Yards Lot" (aka Spooky Park) at New Jersey and M SE for Games 4 and 5IfNecessary. There are also a boatload of specials at the neighborhood's various food and drink establishments (scroll down this page to see the list). Be prepared for the influx--and watch out for the road closures and Emergency No Parking Signs.
It will be an exhilarating and exasperating next few days, but hopefully by the end of the weekend the World Series trophy will be hoisted in this little neck of the woods. Who'd a thunk it.
(And the JDLand camera is going to be there. Which is also pretty cool.)

JD had a nice shout out on WUSA 9 news tonight @ 11p. Had some old photos on a Navy Yard feature they did. Great stuff! Funny thing is the reporter who did it also lives in the 'hood.

Tell the truth JD, you've had this post drafted and on hold for at least a decade, right?


Lee says: (10/25/19 8:55 AM)
I wonder how the potential Metro strike will impact WS attendance.


jdc says: (10/25/19 9:36 AM)
I want JD throwing the opening pitch! It's her 'land' after all.


JD says: (10/25/19 9:58 AM)
@walt--even if I had, I probably would have deleted it in a fit of rage when 19-31 hit. :)

Nice JD credit today in WaPo! link

No matter how many Emmys JD wins for this, it will never make up for the long-standing snub from the MacArthur Foundation.


JD says: (10/25/19 2:10 PM)
Did someone already mention this? The Thompson Hotel is now accepting reservations from March 1 2020 onward. link

Big changes coming to 80 M and Anchovy Social otw. This neighborhood will soon be tops in the US. Amazing


202_cyclist says: (10/26/19 10:58 AM)
Anchovy Social?


RMP says: (10/26/19 2:53 PM)
Anchovy Social is a Whimsical New Bar. Coming to Thompson Hotel. link


jdc says: (10/27/19 5:29 PM)
We've already got a fair bit of competition when it comes to martinis and oysters, no?


CJBabyDaddy says: (10/27/19 9:46 PM)
@jdc: The BID’s long-term master plan has always been that no one should have to walk more than a block for an oyster or martini. I’m sure I read that somewhere.


202_cyclist says: (10/27/19 9:59 PM)
Just as JD feels about coffee, I feel the same way about oysters. Wretched creatures from the deep!


Ampersand says: (10/28/19 2:49 PM)
@202_cyclist, technically they are wretched creatures from the shallow.


CJBabyDaddy says: (11/1/19 2:20 PM)
@202 and &: No, no, no. They are delectable creatures from the shallows. Mmmmm.
