  1. Assuming this is the appropriate place for this (if not, feel free to move/delete), here is a link to a go fund me page that was created to support the staff of Ramparts Tavern in Alexandria/South Arlington: https://www.gofundme.com/f/ramparts-tavern-employee-relief-fund?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link-tip&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet
  2. About a month ago, I finally cancelled my home delivery and went digital-only.The "Print Edition" app works great on an iPad if you want to read it and flip through the pages as if you are reading the actual printed paper (it is the app that has the black WP logo on the white background).
  3. This was also mentioned in Tim Carman's recent review of Grazie Grazie: "It doesn’t take a genius to surmise that the Taylor Gourmet dream died hard for Patten. He says he tried to buy Taylor Gourmet’s assets this spring in a bankruptcy auction but lost out to Source Cuisine, a company led by real estate developer Steve Kalifa, who plans to relaunch the sandwich brand in September. Kalifa may have secured the name, trademarks and logos, but Patten kept the passion for the original concept. Grazie Grazie, Patten says, is a tip of the hat to Taylor Gourmet’s former employees and loyal custo

    Stand Up Comedy

    Does this require a new subforum or would it fit into one of the existing ones (or is there already a topic covering this that I am missing)? I listen to the Radio Classics channel on Sirius XM and find the old episodes of The Jack Benny Program to be reliably hilarious. Although that was a scripted radio program with multiple characters and writers, I've always thought Benny's stand up routines were quite funny, as well. For more contemporary stand up comics, the first name that comes to mind is Dave Attell, although I haven't seen any of his recent work. I was a big fan of his old "Insomniac
  7. I guess if I had spelled it correctly when I was searching I would have found that thread.
  8. Capitol City Brewing Company abruptly closed its Shirlington location yesterday. My regular Thursday night travel patterns made it convenient for me to drop by the bar for a couple of their "core four" beers, which were on special that night of the week (most recently at $3.00/pint). After a while, it became apparent to me that this was also a big night for a large number of local taxi drivers (primarily immigrants from the Horn of Africa region) to gather in the bar area. I never got to know any of them personally, but the ones I would ocassionaly engage in casual conversation were always som

    You might want to try Grosvenor Market in Bethesda. I've never had it myself, but the pickled herring on display in their deli/prepared foods section always looks really good (I assume they prepare it themselves, but don't know for sure).
  11. Just spotted a "Coming Soon" sign for Los Tios Grill at the Van Dorn Plaza shopping center (the one at the corner of Stevenson Ave. & Van Dorn with the Gold's Gym and the Safeway).
  12. Good information and good news! I was always used to going to the Red Porch for the interesting brews and assumed all of the "permanent" built-in stands would be strictly A-B at this point, so never bothered to check. I think I also remember spotting a roving vendor selling Flying Dog a couple of seasons ago, as is mentioned upthread. If any of them still do, I suppose finding them is catch-as-catch-can.
