Wait was that really insane football video from way back (sandbox, maybe?)? Someone flying through the air in a ridiculous manner. I can't remember any other details, sorry. But it was awesome A++ would watch again if someone knows what the hell I am talking about.

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 (5 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.

I work down there in Old Town and I've watched a few matches in the Union Station Pub for convenience and it's been good. Lots of TVs and space and the sound is turned up. Never too busy. Not sure what it's like for US games, mind (I watched the Ghana match in the Iron Horse in DC and it was swamped).

Thanks a lot Mr. Amazon:

Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos is replacing Publisher Katharine Weymouth with Frederick J. Ryan Jr., a former Reagan administration official who was part of the founding leadership team of Politico, a primarily digital news organization that competes with The Post on political coverage, the company announced Tuesday.

The departure of Weymouth, 48, ends eight decades of Graham family leadership of The Post, which her great-grandfather bought in 1933. Bezos, who acquired The Post for $250 million in a sale announced in August 2013, initially kept the senior leadership team intact. He told Weymouth during a visit to Washington, on Aug. 18, that he had selected a new publisher, according to people familiar with the decision. She will remain on the company payroll as an adviser through the end of the year.

Ryan, 59, an attorney, spent years rising in the Reagan administration, eventually becoming a top presidential aide and key leader in the construction of his presidential library and numerous other initiatives after Reagan left office in 1989.

Oh Kennedy Center...

In recent years, the Honors were dogged by controversy amid charges that they consistently overlooked Latin artists. The selection process was revised, and soprano Martina Arroyo and rock guitarist Carlos Santana were among the 2013 recipients. No Hispanics were named this year.

Felix R. Sanchez, chairman of the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts, was in the middle of the campaign for changes after a heated 2012 phone call with Michael Kaiser, then the Kennedy Center president. (Kaiser stepped down at the end of last month. President Deborah F. Rutter is in her first week on the job.) On Thursday morning, Sanchez reacted negatively to this year’s slate.

“I think that it’s incomprehensible that after the discussions we had in 2012 and the changes that were supposed to be in place in 2013 that we have the same result in 2014,” Sanchez said. “It shatters the trust in the promises that were made and in the structural changes that were supposed to prevent this kind of outcome.”

Asked if Latino artists should expect to be named every year, Sanchez said, “There is a three­decade backlog of not acknowledging Latino artists.” He said he will press for a meeting with the center’s Latino advisory committee “posthaste.”

In a statement, Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein said, “We were proud to Honor two Latinos last year and expect to honor more in the years to come.”

Awesome. There's hope in 11 years. see below

combined sewer overflow, or CSO

New stormwater outfalls will be created on both the Anacostia and Potomac Rivers. We will begin work on the Anacostia River first, because it is a slower-moving river, and pollution stays longer and does more damage in rivers with a slow current.

By the year 2025, we expect to reduce CSOs in the Potomac and Anacostia rivers and Rock Creek by 96% overall. CSOs in the Anacostia will be reduced by 98%.
