Well, I finally ate at El Bebe and loved their tacos.

Work is progressing at Hatoba (formerly 100 montaditos) but to the untrained eye it looks like they still have a lot of work to do.

So what's with Tingey Square? Just a new traffic pattern? It seems to be quite the construction project (I walk by it every day).
says: (8/21/19 2:09 AM)
@Smitty: JD’s Tingey Square link above reveals all. Think Times Square but without all that Timesey Squarey craziness.

HipCityVeg is coming to West Half along with Atlas, Cold Stone, Compass Coffee, and The Gatsby. There is also something called Base Bowl.

Just walked by Roy boys with the door partway open. A guy there said they expect to open “last week of August”!

Hello from someone who moved out of the neighborhood and across the country a while ago. I was looking around google earth yesterday, JD, and I think there's some new satellite maps of the neighborhood this summer. The Tunnel is finished in the imagery. Worth a post?
says: (8/22/19 8:07 PM)
The signage at Base Bowl says Barbecue and Ramen. Gotta tip my hat to the quality play on words.
says: (8/23/19 9:47 AM)
Agreed, RMP! Now I am left to wonder what kind of barbecue it will be. Seems like an odd combo.
says: (8/23/19 5:32 PM)
18 apartments are planned for the long-vacant building next to the Brig. link
says: (8/21/19 4:38 PM)
Anyone know what kind of food that will be? Google does not come up with any results.
says: (8/25/19 4:48 PM)
We saw Dotard’s personal helicopter flying over Yards Park and the Anacostia. Hopefully Jared and Ivanka are fleeing.

A newsletter last week for Velocity residents mentioned that Roy Boys plans to open tomorrow (Tuesday), pending resolution of some electrical issue they were facing that came up during inspection. Here's hoping!
says: (8/27/19 5:49 PM)
Roy Boys is officially opening on Thursday with a preview on Wednesday evening that I believe is limited to Velocity residents (according to a building flyer we were emailed).
says: (8/28/19 10:00 AM)
It looks like construction has started at the former parking lot at South Capitol and L Street, SE.

Neighborhood Night being hosted by Edward Daniels at Salt Line on Thursday @ 6:30 PM. Anyone attending? Interested in seeing what will be discussed.
says: (8/29/19 12:16 AM)
@NavyYard2015 re Base Bowl - I wonder if they are trying to go for something similar to this: link
Went there last year and it was definitely interesting.
says: (8/29/19 3:13 PM)
@Shogungts Makes more sense than the American barbecue and ramen combination I was thinking of! Sounds like it will be good.
says: (8/30/19 1:31 PM)
Neighborhood Night had a pretty decent turnout. Weather was nice. Hors d'oeuvres were tasty. Got to meet some cool people.
says: (8/30/19 2:13 PM)
@RMP What is Neighborhood Night and is it invitation only?

@tmich93: A meet-n-greet with Advisory Neighborhood Commissioner Edward Daniels that was held from 6:30-8:30pm at the Salt Line August 29th. Invite was broadcast to one-and-all via social media. RMP apparently was hogging the hors d’oeuvres because I damn sure didn’t see any.

Somewhere (the Maketto-inspired coffeeshop) opened on Saturday.
says: (9/3/19 11:27 AM)
Definitely on the eastern edge of JDLand (maybe worth a future expansion of territory?) but a neighbor recently posted a change.org petition against the proposed helicopter Helipad along the Navy Yard(ish) waterfront. This helipad would negatively impact the new 11sth Street Bridge project, the Anacostia Riverfront Trail, and limit potential infill development along the Anacostia River waterfront. The petition can be found here: link

@jdc, yes. the chicken was delicious. so was the ice cream taco we tried.
says: (9/3/19 3:29 PM)
The Nashville hot chicken is supposed to be delicious. The ice cream tacos also look amazing!
JES— which chicken did you get?
says: (9/3/19 4:57 PM)
I can not figure out where it is and frankly, I've lost interest. I'm not hip enough to go there, I'm sure.
says: (9/3/19 6:04 PM)
Regarding that Helipad - some additional context may be important before signing a petition. It sounds like this is an existing Helipad even closer to the neighborhood (across bridge from Bardo) that they are looking to move because their lease is expiring. link
says: (9/3/19 7:06 PM)
The Nashville hot chicken was fantastic! It's not a sauce that's dripping off the chicken like I expected, it's in the batter the chicken is fried-in so it's more subtle, not screaming hot as I expected. It was delicious as was the ice cream taco.
Somewhere was really great as well, love the different vibe. The latte and chocolate croissant were both delicious.
says: (9/3/19 10:15 PM)
CL85– Regarding the helipad— isn’t the National Park Service trying to transfer several acres of land at Poplar Point to develop, thus necessitating the move of the helipad from east of the river?
says: (9/4/19 12:25 PM)
hey JD - with the slate of recent openings/announcements, I think this page needs a refresh at the bottom link
says: (9/4/19 8:44 PM)
Lol "Hatoba coming in early 2019." Did something get messed up with their permits, or are they just incredibly slow?
says: (9/5/19 10:26 AM)
Reposting from a local bike commuting listserve. If you can provide any assistance, it would be greatly appreciated.
"In response to a car v bike crash (bike trashed, injuries minor) yesterday morning (9/4) approx 8:45-9:00 am, at the intersection of 4th and L St SE, seeking anyone who either saw the event or has heard of anyone who saw the event.
says: (9/5/19 11:02 AM)
I didn't see it, but we have a lot of cameras in the neighborhood, maybe someone has something on camera. Any info on direction of rider and car?
Contact info for witnesses?
says: (9/5/19 11:44 AM)
@202, check your Yahoo account for some contact info re: someone who saw it happen.
says: (9/3/19 10:09 AM)
Somewhere (the Maketto-inspired coffeeshop) opened on Saturday. Definitely a different vibe from many other places in the neighborhood, but definitely a welcomed addition!
says: (9/6/19 10:40 AM)
Does anyone know what Parc Riverside is doing on their first floor? It looks like they may be renovations...anyone know?
says: (9/6/19 9:11 PM)
I am on a plane home and so won't write a post until the weekend, but I have a release from the Lerner Cos. announcing the start of construction on the 244-unit 1000 South Capitol apt building.
says: (9/6/19 11:20 PM)
@fromtheturret that area in Parc was formerly a weird room that I’m sure looked good on initial renderings and the website, but no one ever used and just has C-SPAN on, and their leasing office. I’d assume they’re consolidating the leasing office into the new building. Probably changing the room into some kind of amenity, maybe co working space or a better lounge/kitchen people will actually use
