Liquor Store Aiming for New Jersey and L; Other Tidbits
Jan 21, 2018 5:40 PM
It looks as if Insignia on M
has a tenant for the retail space at New Jersey and L, in the same block as the Metro station entrance. There's a placard
now posted that Navy Yard Wine Merchant* has applied for a Class B liquor license, which allows the sale of beer and wine--and has also included a request for a tasting permit. ANC 6D's ABC Committee will be taking this up later this month, and the full ANC could be expected to vote on whether it will support the application at its February meeting.
In other tidbits I've been meaning to pass along:
* ZAC BROWN
: Normally Nats Park hosts a big concert during the All-Star break, but the stadium will be otherwise occupied during that stretch, and so this summer's big show, the Zac Brown Band, will be on July 27. Tickets are on sale now
And I've been reminded in the comments that this is actually the second of the big summer shows, with the Eagles and James Taylor
playing the night before.
: The Post's Tom Sietsema liked what he saw
at Chloe, calling himself "bewitched" with the debut menu, and that "right out of the gate, Chloe feels like a keeper."
: The next "Coffee with Chuck" status meeting on the Virginia Avenue Tunnel
is on Wednesday, Jan. 24, from 8 to 9 am at the CSX office at 861 New Jersey Ave., SE. There is lots of work in the 300 block of Virginia Avenue these days to turn it back into an actual street, with the beginnings of curbs and sidewalks and preparations for drains and streetlights, as well as working toward returning the entrance to the Capitol Quarter driveway to its original path from Virginia.
* PSA 106
: This month's PSA-106 meeting is Tuesday, Jan. 23, at 7 pm at the Capper Community Center at 5th and K, SE. MPD holds these meetings to discuss residents' concerns and questions about public safety issues.
I took a bunch of pictures this weekend, but will write about that when I recover.
* I assume this is the actual name, but cannot say with 100 percent certainty.
Eagles Concert at Nationals Park Cancelled
Apr 19, 2010 2:51 PM
: "Live Nation just announced that the June 15 concert at Nationals Stadium featuring the Eagles
, with guests Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban, has been canceled due to scheduling conflicts. If you purchased through Tickets.com, your ticket and parking will be automatically refunded the week of May 3; otherwise, contact your point of sale for a refund." [Hmm. Scheduling conflicts?]
Eagles (the Band) to Play Nats Park on June 15
Mar 16, 2010 10:46 PM
(I've just gotten back from a week traipsing around Arizona, so apologies for light/slow posting, including this one) It was announced today
that the Eagles
, with special guests the Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban, will be playing at Nationals Park
on Tuesday, June 15, with tickets going on sale at tickets.com on March 29 at 10 am. This is the second concert scheduled for the stadium this summer, with the Dave Matthews Band playing on July 23
Astute readers might remember all sorts of rumors back in 2008
that the Eagles
were going to play the first-ever concert at the ballpark, an honor which eventually went to Billy Joel and Elton John, last year (unless you want to count the Pope).
No Eagles at the Ballpark

Eagles Concert at Ballpark Off Tour Date List
May 12, 2008 12:02 PM
Hmmm, perhaps it's not a go yet after all--the July 26 date for the Eagles
to be in concert at Nationals Park is now removed from their July tour date list
, after popping up there last week. The WashTimes had reported last week
that the concert was under negotiation, but then a few days later one of JDLand's commenters noted that the date was on the band's web site. And now it's not. We shall see.
Using the Ballpark for Other Baseball Events
May 5, 2008 11:22 PM
I've been meaning to mention this after hearing about it last week, but it wasn't until I saw this article in Tuesday's Post
that I actually believed it--on Tuesday evening
(May 6), there is a high school baseball game
being held at Nationals Park
, between my alma mater Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School and arch-rival Whitman
(at least they were arch-rivals back in MY day). Go Barons! Admittance is free, with gates opening at 5 pm for a 6 pm game.
The Post article explains that the teams are using the stadium for free, but they must each sell a minimum of 250 tickets to future Nationals games. This isn't necessarily sitting well with the organizers of the May 31 DC High School Baseball Classic, an all-day event "capped by an all-star game and a matchup of the District's top public school team and one from a top D.C. private school," at a cost of $36,129. (The B-CC game is expecting 200-300 fans, while the DC Classic is expected to have 5,000 people in attendance.)
Sayeth the Post: "The two games offer a look at how the Nationals are opening the $611 million, publicly financed facility for community use. The D.C. Classic will be one of the 18 days annually that the team, per its lease agreement with the city, operates the stadium for D.C. Sports and Entertainment. Tonight's game between B-CC and Whitman is not one of those days, but is the first of a pilot program the team is developing with an aim similar to the D.C. Classic -- generating interest in baseball among the area's youth."
Eagles to Play the Ballpark? (The Band, Not the Team)
May 4, 2008 9:19 AM
From the WashTimes
: "It appears that Don Henley's 'Boys of Summer' -- the Eagles
-- will likely play the first concert to be held at Nationals Park
, on July 26. Although no such date appears on the Web site for the Eagles
' summer tour, a VIP ticket request form obtained by The Washington Times lists an Eagles
show on July 26 at the new baseball stadium in Southeast. Washington Nationals officials confirmed talks are taking place for such a show. 'It remains a discussion,' team President Stan Kasten said. 'There really isn't a deal yet. But there is no question we would like to be in the big concert business. We hope to know one way or another soon.' "
In other stadium events, I was amazed to find out at few days ago that this Tuesday (May 6) will see a high school baseball game between my alma mater Bethesda-Chevy Chase and rival Whitman; gates open at 5 pm, game starts at 6 pm. Admission is free. Go Barons!
