More Public Art Coming to Mount Vernon

This entry is crossposted at FrenchTwistDC.com.

By now we’ve all seen or heard about David Black’s Lift Off on the corner of 5th and K. As we’ve mentioned, public art displays are part of the Mount Vernon Triangle master plan to reclaim the urban arena as a livable space. Well, the D.C. Office of Planning also has plans for New York Avenue and is teaming up with the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Downtown D.C. Business Improvement District and  and other agencies to bring Niki de Saint Phalle’s whimsical and colorful sculpture to the otherwise grey and un-noteworthy corridor between 13th and 9th Streets, N.W.

Kid Friendly Dining?

It’s Friday night and your friends from out of town are visiting. They’ve asked you to suggest a restaurant downtown for a dinner and suggest they prefer it not be a national chain. Normally that’s a simple enough task. Yet these friends have a 3 year old child. You hesitate as you’ve rarely noticed small children at downtown restaurants and Friday night is a “date night” where the restaurants are sure to be crowded. Where would take these friends on a Friday night in the PQ?

This probably isn’t as hard as I’m making as Penn Quarter is a tourism district afterall. But I can’t even recall the last time I saw a high chair at a Penn Quarter restaurant. Seemed commonplace in the ‘burbs.

BYT: First Look at Kushi

Brightest Young Things snagged an early preview of Kushi. An array of great photos from Kimberly Cadena are in the posting.

Excerpt:

The sous vide method will be used to prep some food items for grilling. Pork belly for example will be cooked at 145 degrees for 12 hours, totally breaking down the muscle texture before being grilled for 4-5 minutes.

For past coverage on Kushi from this blog visit the Kushi tag.

WBJ: Mass Court sold

The Washington Business Journal has confirmed that the sale of Mass Court to CB Richard Ellis has been finalized for $105.5 million.

In October we speculated that the impending sales transaction was the explanation for why Madison Property Group removed their listing of the Mass Court retail space from their website earlier in the year. CBRE likely would prefer to use their in-house property group rather than continue to use Madison’s services.

40% off Wine at Safeway

Safeway has been running a 30% discount on wine on top of their standard 10% discount for the mix & match 6-pack. This chance to get a combined 40% off runs through March 3rd.


Please leave your recommendations for quality wines under $20 a bottle that are available at the 5th & L Safeway. I think it’s a discussion many will benefit from. Myself in particular I don’t drink red wine but would be interested in knowing which might to be good to have on hand for guests.
