See I always assumed the LNS crew lived in Bethesda/NOVA and thus would not be fucking with DCs polls.

sala thai is fine for delivery and take-out? I don't understand the point about mediocrity somehow profiting from the restriction - if a restaurant truly sucks, it goes out of business, no? As pointed out in the comments, Adams Morgan is packed to the gills with bars and restaurants and I wouldn't say it's any kinda amazing dining district. Brains, tell me how it is.

TOMBOT, Tuesday, 18 November 2008 06:05 (7 years ago) Permalink

Sala Thai is eh. I used to eat there plenty before Rice and Regent Thai opened. Now I pretty much just do Rice since the last time I went into Regent Thai it smelled distinctly like rat poison.

This overlay needs to get changed but it's not really a problem as it stands - I know plenty of people looking at opening up in that corridor and they don't expect any problems getting a zoning exception.

I think new building in DC should require all retail on the ground floor without restrictions - this would drive retail rents way down and would negatively impact efficiency of new development somewhat, but it effectively translates to having developers subsidize cheap retail. Because of the building height limits DC retail spaces are overpriced and we lack a proportionate population to support retail, so lower rents could do a lot of good.

Mediocrity does profit from restriction sometimes - like with cabaret laws in NY.

I think the biggest factor in keeping bad restaurants open is lack of reliance on repeat business. Woodley Park is a great example of this - it's got the same demographics and a similar streetscape at Cleveland Park just up the street, but it's got a bunch of shitty places and Cleveland Park has, generally, very good ones. The large hotels in Woodley Park mean there are a bunch of tourists and conventioneers coming through who are going to eat at that random indian place or wherever because it's right between the Metro and their hotel - I don't think it's the locals keeping that row in business.

I don't think Yg's argument is valid here given the current state of development along 14th/U St. There are a lot of older struggling places in that stretch that would actually be less expensive for a restaurateur to buy out and remodel than a new space would be. If Sala Thai is able to stay open despite not doing very much business that just means they'll eventually be bought out by another operator that thinks they can maximize their volume in that space.

Have they done this for previous presidents-elect? If not, this is a blatantly partisan move by an organization funded with taxpayer money.

I just got back from a very brief visit to your fine fine city and I am still getting over the fact that I'm going to be living near the fabulous Kramers book store rather than here. Though Kramer's website is a bit self-congratulatory, or at least the video is. ETA now some time in February, so will miss the Mall madness...

ljubljana, Monday, 24 November 2008 10:48 (7 years ago) Permalink

Kramerbooks is a fairly small bookstore with an OK selection and decent beers and shitty food. And it's open 24 hours on the weekend. That's all.

I live in Swindon now, so an ok selection and half decent food will do me fine for now :-) I'm afraid I'm pretty easy to please when it comes to cities at the moment...

Second Story Books in Dupont is pretty okay for used stuff. Other than that. . . Olsson's used to be the other big indie bookstore around here, but they shut their doors. So you're stuck pretty much with Borders and B&N's.

Mr. Que, Monday, 24 November 2008 16:27 (7 years ago) Permalink

Thanks Mr Que. My colleague whom I'm replacing there also recommended Second Story Books, but she worked in Swindon for even longer than me, so I should not rely on her warped judgement...

I'll drop the excited puppy thing now. I'm showing up provincial England. I'm capable of getting over-excited by Whole Foods as well.

Student activists announce sit-in in President DeGioia’s office, call for name change to Mulledy Hall

By Elizabeth Teitz on November 12, 2015 News
Georgetown students announced at a solidarity demonstration on Thursday, Nov. 12 that they are to begin a sit-in outside University President John DeGioia’s office on Friday morning to continue until administrators change the name of Mulledy Hall.

Several hundred students, faculty, and administrators attended the event, which was organized to call attention to racial disparities and discrimination at Georgetown as well as to send a message of support to activists across the country, including at University of Missouri and Yale University. The event, which was organized on Facebook, was hosted by Crystal Walker (SFS ‘16), Candace Milner (MSB ‘16), Queen Adesuyi (COL ‘16), Ayo Aruleba (COL ‘17), and Stephanie Estevez (COL ‘16).

The sit-in is to continue during the president’s business hours from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. until administrators change the name of Mulledy Hall, named for a former university president who sold 272 slaves to Louisiana in 1838 in order to raise money to pay off university debts.

Milner read off a list of demands from what she called a “working document,” which includes renaming McSherry Hall and the John Main Center, in addition to Mulledy Hall, installing plaques on unmarked graves of slaves on campus, the implementation of an annual program to mark slavery’s legacy at Georgetown, revision of campus tours to include information about the roles of black people in Georgetown’s history, mandatory training for professors on identity and diversity, and the creation of an “endowment to recruit black identifying professors.” The endowment should be “equivalent to the Net Present Value of the profit generated from the transaction in which 272 people were sold into bondage,” according to a document circulated by the Black Leadership Forum.

“We’ve been dialoguing enough. We are the university of dialogue,” said Walker who spoke at the event and sits on the Working Group on Slavery, Memory, and Reconciliation. “We want tangible change.”

The organizers also called for structural and cultural change on campus that reflects greater diversity and active progress.

“The culture doesn’t prioritize the needs of people of color,” said Antwan Robinson (COL ‘16). “You have to watch your backs on campus. It’s not always safe.” He spoke of feeling uncomfortable on campus due to a climate of racial intolerance and ongoing micro-aggressions, and urged students to speak up about the injustice they witnessed.

Administrators, including Dr. Todd Olson, vice president for Student Affairs, also attended the event.

“It’s very valuable to listen to our students tonight,” he said. “We are committed to continuing to engage with our students and make changes on our campus.”

After the event ended and participants dispersed, some lingered in Red Square, while Father Raymond Kemp, special assistant to the president and an adjunct professor in the Theology Department, walked through the square with one fist held in the air.

“This is solidarity, this is what I teach. It’s straight out of Papal doctrine,” he said. “This is exactly Catholic social teaching at its very best.”

This story will continue to be updated as more information becomes available.

Editor’s note: An error with regards to Antwan Robinson’s class year has been corrected. Robinson is in the College Class of 2016, not the College Class of 2017.

In addition, a sentence summarizing Robinson’s remarks at the rally has been updated. The sentence previously read, “He spoke of feeling uncomfortable at times walking on campus at night due to a climate of racial intolerance, and urged students to speak up about the injustice they witnessed.”
