Local Link Round Up
Year of the Dragon Pop-up at Toki Underground from Kevin Widener on Vimeo. I believe the video originally appeared on BYT.
Sometimes I think everybody goes out on H Street these days. It certainly seems that way from all the online buzz about the Corridor. Here's a sampling of the local coverage. Drink DC does an Atlas District bar crawl, while the Final Draught sticks to one location for date night at Granville's (1238 H Street). Brightest Young Things has some great photos from the H Street Karaoke Championship. On Tap interviews a bartender from Tru Orleans (400 H Street). Toki Underground (2nd floor of 1234 H Street) continues to absolutely kill it with their top notch ramen and cool events. You should definitely check out these cool photos Washingtonian and Gourmet Grads have from the Chinese New Year event.
It arts related news No Rules Theatre Company's production of Peter Pan: The Boy Who Hated Mothers runs through March 3rd at the H Street Playhouse (1365 H Street), and it's getting plenty of positive attention. Metro Weekly, DC Broadway World, DC Theatre Scene, and We Love DC, discuss the adaptation.
The Washington Informer stirs the pot with an H Street gentrification story. You should also read a response to the piece from Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space. The streetcars have also been a hot topic with stories from WTOP, DCist, the GW Hatchet, and the Washington Post. The Washington Post also takes a look at the potential financial impact of the streetcar for the District. Meanwhile, Greater Greater Washington wonders if we shouldn't tweak the plans just a bit.
Over in NoMA the Uline Arena has sparked the interest of a writer for Catholic University's The Tower, and Zuppa Fresca (250 K Street) has found a fan in District Cuisine.
