It looks like the barricade at 5th and Mass Ave NW has been moved allowing cars to make right turns into Massachusetts Ave off of 5th Street NW. In my view, the negatives of this barricade outweigh any positive outcomes as it leads to huge backups on Eye Street especially when impacted by the numerous other construction activities.
What do you think?
When I moved to the Mount Vernon Triangle ten years ago, the closest coffee shop was the Starbucks located at 7th and H St NW. With the opening of La Colombe at 6th and Eye St NW on Sunday, Triangle residents now have coffee options walking in all directions. With seven options for coffee, which coffee shop will you choose to frequent?

On Saturday, October 3rd, Bhakti Yoga DC will be opening at 928 5th Street NW. For those that have lived in the Triangle for a while, this is the location of the old Calvary Women’s Shelter as well as the Metropolitan Alcoholics Anonymous. Both tenants moved from that location a few years ago and it has remained vacant.
Bhakti Yoga DC adds yet another fitness business to the Triangle allowing customers yet another reason to partake in one of the new bakeries. This yoga studio will offer more than just yoga classes with the inclusion of a sacred space for meditation and conscious lifestyle practices. A promo code is in the coupon accompanying this article which will give the customer one free class when registering on their web site.
The grand opening on Saturday, October 3rd will last the entire day with yoga and meditation classes in the morning and an evening of yoga, live mantra music, a vegetarian dinner and presentations of Indian dance and sacred philosophy.
Welcome Bhakti to the neighborhood!!
