This news has already come through here as a rumor, but the Nats announced it officially today (via WBJ): "The Washington Nationals have chosen Levy Restaurants to run concessions at the team's ballpark, just one of many changes planned for the 1-year-old stadium's second season."
The article also describes the changes in store for the Red Porch Restaurant, which have also been in the media previously but are worth reposting in case you haven't been following along: "The Nationals are also working with HOK Sport, the ballpark's architect, to replace the center field restaurant's fixed glass wall with sliding glass to develop a better connection to the game, said team President Stan Kasten. The plan is to remove the last row of 32 fixed seats in center field in front of the restaurant, called the Red Porch, and add more tables, seating 44 people in the space. The concrete back wall will be removed and replaced with roll-up garage doors that open up that side of the building, creating 88 outdoor seats facing the center field plaza. [...] Other changes to the center field plaza include installing a stage for live music, building a larger pre-game set for local broadcasters to use on game days and erecting statues honoring Washington baseball legends Walter Johnson, Josh Gibson and Frank Howard."
And, there's this, which might be of interest to residents and workers desperate for food other than Five Guys and Subway: "The Nationals would like to open the Red Porch for lunch and dinner on nonevent days when the team is on the road, but nothing is definite for extended hours, Kasten said. 'We may experiment,' he said. 'We'll see.'"
 

A reminder that tonight is the first Anacostia Waterfront Forum, entitled "Sustainable Development, Infrastructure and the Future of the District of Columbia." It's at the MLK Library at 6:30 pm, and will feature the new director of DDOT Gabe Klein, along with chief engineer Kathleen Penney and other speakers. What is the event, exactly? "This educational forum series is designed to re-engage District residents in considering policies, concepts and potential outcomes embedded in the Anacostia Waterfront Framework Plan. The series is an opportunity to learn more about how the development of a world class Anacostia Waterfront can help create a more sustainable and inclusive future for District residents. "
