Where the Rum Comes From

GM’s off to Jamaica for the week! See you in April!

(But before he goes, GM had promised to pass on that there will be a community day event at Mt. Zion at 2:00 pm on March 31st. Come over to 1334 29th St. for a lively service with gospel choirs and step dancing troups!)

Smoothie King Coming to old Little Tavern Space

Well, if you were planning on taking up GM’s idea and restoring the Little Tavern to Wisconsin and N St., too late. Word is that a Smoothie King is taking over the space.

Ehh. Could be better, but could be worse. Georgetown is not exactly drowning is smoothie shops, so this will probably satisfy some hankerings. But a chain restaurant is still a chain restaurant, and brings yet more genericism to the neighborhood.

GM has no information on when they will open, but would guess summertime.

All Clear for Magnolias

One of GM’s favorite things about spring in DC is the blossoming of the saucer magnolias. These beautiful pink flowers sprout out with the first real warm days of March. But their early appearance also makes them susceptible to late frosts, which can wipe out the blooms overnight. Luckily the forecast looks good for a solid season this year.

Just two years ago, we had an early warming spell followed by a hard frost. And it did ruin the season’s magnolia bloom. The warming spell we received last week certainly triggered the pink blossoms to emerge, but the ten day forecast indicates that there is no hard frost on the horizon. So it should be smooth sailing!
