The Morning Metropolitan

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • More neighborhood market news: After running Sara’s Market for 19 years, the Johnsons are taking a well-deserved retirement. They will continue to own the building but will rent out the market to a new operator, so hopefully not much will change with the shop.
  • Good new year’s options in Georgetown.

Good morning Georgetown, hope you’re already chilling your champagne by now:

  • Are you missing an orange cat?
  • Looks like it’s going to be a messy New Year’s Eve, why don’t you keep safe by keeping it local tonight?

Paolo’s by M.V. Jantzen.

Good morning Georgetown, here’s the latest:

  • Can’t wait till tomorrow to ring in the new year? Then head over to the City Tavern tonight for a Penultimate New Year’s Eve.
  • Speaking of celebrating New Year’s early, you can catch the legendary Ahmad Jamal one more time tonight at Blues Alley before having to pay double for the honor tomorrow.
  • If you’re heading out to Mei N Yu for New Year’s, try to get there before 9:00 to see Chi Chang, a real life terra cotta warrior.

Pop A Cork in Georgetown on New Year’s Eve

While 2009 is nearly done, there are still plenty of new year’s eve options available out and about in Georgetown. So chill the bubbly and check out GM’s list below.

Neither is cheap; the early show is $110 a person, the later show is $160 a person. Both types of tickets come with a dinner and free non-alcoholic drinks. The later show provides hats, noisemakers, and free champagne.

If, however, you’re looking for a truly decadent and extravagant new year’s, there’s just one option: Citronelle. They’re offering a “gourmand 6 course” prix fixe dinner. It’s a mere $300 per person. If you want wine with that, it’s only $150 more per person! Another reason to go? It may be your last chance to ring in the new year at the legendary restaurant since it may close in 2010.
