My post on Wednesday about the rumors of a not-quite-yet-signed tenant
for the ground-floor restaurant space at 100 M Street SE
shook loose quite a few mouths, and it is unanimous amongst those gabbers that the newcomer in negotiations is Gordon Biersch
, the brewery/restaurant that already has a location at 9th and F Streets NW
, not too far from the Verizon Center. With 100 M being within sight of Nationals Park
, it would seem a plausible destination, assuming the final papers get signed (which does not appear to be imminent). It'll be interesting to see their timeline, especially vis-a-vis the baseball season (getting it done by Opening Day, 5 1/2 months from now, would seem to be a bit optimistic, I think?).
On a 100 percent unrelated note (I really do hate teeny tiny posts, so felt the need to combine these), the Capitol Riverfront BID's latest newsletter
is out, and they're asking for respondents for their annual "online perception surveys" for both the BID itself
and for the Yards Park
But don't you dare click on either of those survey links if you haven't yet filled out my readership survey
--my feelings will be terribly hurt! (Argh! I'm snakebitten with the dang survey. This link was a bad one until about 9 am on Friday. Sorry! Please try again!)
The BID also is co-hosting a Community Planting Day
on Saturday, Oct. 29, from 9 am to noon, along with the US Green Building Council National Capital Region. They're going to plant thousands of daffodil bulbs throughout the neighborhood.
