Uhm, also, don't forget that this summer, the H Street Playhouse gets DCeiver sanctified when Forum Theatre drops THE MEMORANDUM. Opening late June.Posted by: DCeiver on May 22, 2006 11:34 PM
The Argonaut: the bar everybody is talking about but nobody is going to.
I think H St. will take off eventually, but it's still too early and the distance creates a barrier to experimentation. Meanwhile, Columbia Heights is growing by leaps and bounds and we still have only Wonderland.Posted by: rcr on May 23, 2006 02:47 PM
Actually, the Argonaut tends to get extremely crowded when classes are in session at Galludet. It's really their local hangout at this point (the Tombs of Trinidad, if you will). My guess is that classes are done for the year, which is why it was empty. That said, I don't think that was the crowd you were expecting. I actually go to the Argonaut quite often, and the Galludet student to hipster ratio still seems to be about 25:1 on busy nights...Posted by: Aziz on May 24, 2006 09:44 AM
The penultimate paragraph describes the unspoiled state of an up-and-coming neighborhood and/or specific bar. You are the vanguard. Go back and enjoy it while you can, especially so that you can complain later about how all of the latecomers are ruining it.Posted by: Doug on May 26, 2006 10:04 AM
