More News from Around the Neighborhood


During this holiday weekend and beautiful weather, it's a perfect opportunity to enjoy all that our neighborhood has to offer!

I hope you had a chance to visit the 14th and U Street Farmer's Market (on the sidewalk in front of the Reeves Center on the U Street side) this morning to see the array of fresh offerings! Also featured, was Chef Susan Holt with her delightful creations using farm-fresh ingredients. Susan's new cooking school, CulinAerie, "The Pinnacle of Food and Wine Instruction," finds its new home at 1131 14th Street, NW ( / 1888-789-COOK), "a glass-fronted street level space with two large state of the art kitchen classrooms for both participation and demonstration cooking classes."

If you missed this morning's farmer's market, visit the Dupont Circle Fresh Farm Market tomorrow from 9AM to 1PM. There, you'll not only have the opportunity to shop for fresh vegetables, cheese, meat, eggs, flowers, and plants (there's also wonderful handmade soap), you can purchase your advance tickets to the upcoming Annual Dupont Circle House Tour and Tea.

It's wonderful to see how busy our neighborhood sidewalks are today with neighbors and visitors. Hopefully, you are not in front of your screen reading this blurb - but out visiting the shops, galleries, restaurants, post office, dry cleaners, or chatting with neighbors on the corner. Our neighborhood has unique offerings - from food to furniture to jazz to theatre. ANC 2B09 includes many must-see stops within the boundary and all around it, including but not limited to: Goodwood, LoveCafe, Utopia, Coppi's, El Paraiso Restaurant, Ruff and Ready, Station Nine, Millennium, Nevin Kelly Gallery, Nanna's, Simply Home, 24-7, Hunted House, Jo-Jo's, Results, Bang, Source Theatre, Local 16, Cafe 1612, Greater Goods, and many more!
