Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:
- Two Georgetown patios make it into Metrocurean’s Five Great Hidden Patios.
- The new Circulator route is up and running, have you tried it yet? GM didn’t realize that they changed up the old route too. Now when it comes into Georgetown, it will come along K St. and up Wisconsin. Eastbound it stays on M St. This is a confusing and frustrating change.

But today the wait is finally over and Puro Cafe opened its doors to the public. GM stopped by for lunch and he can attest that the wait was worth it.
The first thing you’ll notice when you enter Puro Cafe is that you’ll feel like you walked into a high-end hair salon. Think of it as if Ilo started selling paninis: the aesthetic stark and modern, the music background-techno.
