This is why I really wish they'd open a Sammy's type of sports bar in the old H-Street / La Stella space. Cheap-ish entrees & appetizers, lots of TV's, beer specials / towers / pitchers / buckets. Nothing can stay open there, or in the Porters/McDaids/Bocci spots due to the high rent and the type of concepts that they keep trying to open there. The only places that seem to do a decent lunch & late night crowd on that street are EV and PR.

Glad to hear we're getting a Guasaca. Have y'all tried the place where Waba used to be - it's called Pisco Mar - it's like a Peruvian/South American fusion (with ramen) and it's actually really good. Groupons are nearly 50% off for it and it's a steal considering how much food you get.

Could not agree more. We used to tell the managers at H-Street / La Stella that they needed to just go full-on sports bar. Something corporate that could handle the initial losses would probably work really well here, like a Buffalo Wild Wings.

This is true because they own the buildings they're in and they keep things super cheap (EV) or have a really wide range of stuff (PR).

EV will be gone in about half a year, so there’s opportunity to swoop in.

^^what's the deal on EV? Aren't they doing one of those mixed use buildings where it's like 12 apartments and then retail on the bottom?

The part I'm confused about is I heard that EV reserved the rights to keep the bar/restaurant on the first floor of said mixed-use building. Is that true / are they actually going to do that?

If the project is approved and moves forward, East Village will have the right of first refusal to put the restaurant in the bottom floor of the apartment building."

Word is they are adding a new lane for Lime and Bird E-Scooters with viaducts over each traffic circle.
