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?

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

Renderings of "The Standard" aka old NC Equipment Co./Lulu building.

I wish they'd push the design a little more hard-industrial and put the tractor on top of the NE entrance tower (probably some ordinance that prevents that?), but so it goes...

All of the businesses between Cup a Joe and East Village have moved out. Can’t be a good sign.

Why even keep the tractor sign at all? It is just a cookie cutter design with a random tractor...looks dumb.

That Sushi Mon place that's over by the Zaxby's now is pretty good, only problem is it's like $4/hr to park in the deck over CVS.

But are they going to reopen in a new building? They own the property.

Huh? They sold the property, it's being developed now.

Yeah as far as I've heard they are exercising option to leave space when building opens in 2020

story about the crane here.

said it will be at least a year to review any new plans for construction, then the construction will begin, etc. so that shell of a building will be there for years to come, unfortunately.
