Things are moving along at the long promised Mythology & Lore, a Nouveau American restaurant with global influences opening at 816 H Street. Not only do they have their sign, but they recently installed these amazing cloud lights. These are no ordinary lights. They are artist Richard Clarkson's interactive Cloud speaker lights. Trust me, you want to click on those links. I also embedded a video of the clouds in action at the bottom of this post. Todd Luongo, a partner in Mythology & Lore, told me he's pretty sure they'll be the first restaurant in the District to use the clouds. You can follow the restaurant and lounge's progress on Facebook.
