The DC Department of Transportation (DDoT) began the Corcoran Street NW sidewalk replacement project on Wednesday morning. Brick sidewalks will replace the concrete on the 1400 to 1600 stretch of the street.
The pace of work was quick on the first day. I left for an assignment early this morning and when I returned mid-morning huge chunks of sidewalk had been ripped out. Oh… a note to any neighbors who may not be thrilled with the project: No one at Bordertan had anything to do with this project. However, we’re sure it is going to look very nice!
We’re trying to get the “official” completion date for you from DDoT.
See note below: The completion date has been given as October 4. Ummm…. okay, never mind.
Nellie’s Sport Bar, 900 U Street NW. This is a mix of gay bar, sports bar and neighborhood restaurant. Nellie’s has TV screens everywhere so you can follow your favorite teams. During the weekends the rooftop terrace is the place to be: crowed, noisy and fun.
“Zero Hour” at the Jewish Community Center, 1529 16th Street NW: “Channeling Zero Mostel’s wild moods, crazy humor and righteous anger, Jim Brochu reintroduces us to this funny, fantastically contrary man whose penchant for truth-telling has been sorely missed.”
“Dublin Carol” at the H Street Playhouse, 1365 H St. NE: “Set in present-day Dublin on Christmas Eve, Dublin Carol relates the story of John Plunkett, a funeral parlor worker. John recounts memories of the drinking and womanizing of his youth with his younger assistant Mark. However, when his estranged daughter Mary arrives with sobering news, he is forced to face the more disastrous side of his past. Dublin Carol is a dark Irish comedy that follows John as he takes stock of his choices and their consequences—leaving us all more aware of our own lives and mortality.” – H Street Playhouse
