Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Philly Pizza became Go Fresh became Crave.
  • WaPo suggests Baked and Wired as alternative to Georgetown Cupcake crowds. Like all tourist-condescending Georgetowners, GM agrees with the sentiment but the thing is, Baked and Wired has some pretty long lines too these days.

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Philly Pizza undergoes yet another overhaul.
  • A little bit more on the pre-K lottery at Hyde that ended up with 13 local kids on the waitlist (looks like Glover Park is experiencing the same surge of interest in the local school).

Philly Pizza Finally Closes For Real (For Now)

After a long battle with the neighbors, the owners of Philly Pizza on Potomac St. are crying uncle. For now. In February the restaurant lost its appeal to a BZA attempting to overrule DCRA’s decision to revoke its restaurant license. Notwithstanding the loss, the owners simply stayed open until yesterday when, as first reported by Vox Populi, they finally consented to close. However, the restaurant owners are already planning (threatening?) on reapplying with DCRA for a new license.

But for now, after this long fight between the restaurant and the neighbors, the ANC, and CAG, who deserves to give the victory speech? The Mayor, of course.

Seriously.

Adrian Fenty is giving a press conference in front of Philly Pizza this morning at 11:00. The last time Fenty gave a morning press conference in Georgetown, Maret ended up with a sweet deal for the Jelleff fields. Who wants to bet Sidwell Friends just rented itself a pizza joint?

Check out the consent agreement after the jump: Continue reading

ANC Preview: Here’s Your Chance

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to stay at an ANC meeting until the bitter end? Of course you haven’t! But that’s no reason not to do it at least once. And next Monday may be your best chance.

The Old Georgetown Board doesn’t meet in January. Therefore the ANC doesn’t have a single Old Georgetown Matter to consider. As a result, Monday’s meeting will be the shortest of the year.

But that doesn’t mean it will be boring! Well, at least not by ANC standards. Check out a few of the items on the agenda:

  • An update from Safeway. Will they meet their May deadline? Have they rented out the first floor retail yet?
  • Snow removal. How did the city perform? How about citizens and businesses?
  • West End Fire Station. How would we be covered if the city goes ahead with plans to redevelop the West End Fire Station plot?
  • Philly Pizza Showdown. Tuesday is the big showdown before the Zoning Administrator for Philly Pizza. Does the restaurant have a chance?

So come on over to Visitation Monday night and join in on the condensed fun.
