TMB - Upper Northwest

Recommended Posts

I had a good chuckle when WTOP ran a continual piece one day about the ban. They kept repeating the opponents' gloom and doom mantra that smokers would take their money to Virginia restaurants rather than submit to the ban in DC. Right.

If this board has shown anything, it has shown that even hard-core ...ahem - what's that word? ..."people passionate about food"...have major issues with crossing into the great unknown that is NoVa, no matter what the lure. Call me nuts, but no way the average DC JoeSixpack is going to drive "all the way" to Virginia just to have a smoke with his burger and beer.

MMmmmmmm, now this sounds like a plan. I've got fermented stuff I can add to the cause :lol:

Mondays are out for me too, since that's the day I always work late.

I'd like to propose Cafe Ole on Wisconsin Ave. in the spring time. The restaurant is pretty small, but they have a huge patio. Food (Mediterranean) is pretty good, and definitely the best thing between there and Tenley metro (its a little less than a mile south of Metro, kind of close to the Popeye's).

Stick a fork in me; I'm done. Two in, two out -- I'm giving up on trying to schedule this thing. :lol:

I'm passing the torch. Synaesthesia, since you offered: Popeye's family pack and BYO drinks at your place? I'll bring dessert. Name the date and time.

The LAME DUCKS will be happy to encompass the Upper Northwest people. :lol: Very soon we will be having the opening of that Specialty Hot Dog place, plus the opening of "Napoleon" in the old Mantis space (which used to be the old Pasta In place, preceded by the old India 2000 place, preceded by Miss Saigon, preceded by I Don't Remember, preceded by La Plaza [the first, and much better, precursor to Lauriol Plaza], all of which was preceded by a trophy shop B) fo'shizzle).

Ahh.. you're trying to co-opt us! Ahhhh.... <j/k> Ok... I am going to say Wednesday, Jan. 24, 6:30PM, but flexiblity to come whenever.

I welcome any LAME DUCKs to my house. Please PM me for the address since I'm not exactly keen on posting it publicly.

We'll get Popeye's, y'all can bring drinks. Perhaps appropriate drinks would be 40's or champagne (that's an interesting story). I'm also going to insist on watching Beauty and the Geek, since one of my friends is on the show. =p

Bah! Only one person has responded so far. I'm on the verge of defecting to the LAME DUCKs.

Noooo! Not Cleveland Park! CP eateries don't need our support; those few NORTH of CP (e.g., Uptownn Cathay :lol: , Las Lomita, the Greek tavern place) do. However, Pidgey, if you want to organize something by all means, do so. (BTW: according to the sign Coat of Arms is "suppose' to open under new management, not as an Indian restaurant.)

Anyone interested in trying again? Maybe some place in Cleveland Park?

I'm not as familiar with that area, although I am more familiar with the area north of Tenley town on Wisconsin Ave. There's a pretty good Thai restaurant up near there, 4912 (not excellent, but cheap). Any interest?

Or, hey, there's always the Dancing Crab.

Okay, now that the dreaded Valentine's Day has come and gone, I think we can plan a date for next week. Wednesday the 28th, maybe? That way we don't look like losers who can't have a TMB dinner during the month of February.

I'm not sure about Tuesday(the 19th) , but I would love to attend at get-together on Wednesday (the 27th).

Do you think more people would be interested in getting together at Comet Ping-Pong?

These lunch meet up groups seemed to have died off a few years ago. Anyone interested in resurrecting one for occassional weekday lunch meet ups along or not to far from the Red line? I work from home now which is great for getting out to try new places, but it'd be nicer to have some company.
