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.

http://yglesias.thinkprogress.org/archives/2008/11/no_restaurant_for_you.php

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.

Glad I saw that Winogrand exhibit. Nicely shot b & w photos from the last century. A bunch of 'em were posthumously printed, as Winogrand toward the end of his life just started taking lots of photos, and never printing them. Contact sheets for some, was the most he did. Exhibits like this make me want to get a nice camera and learn how to use it well.

Cassavetes movie there next weekend.

National Gallery of Art's final showing of a movie in its East Wing Auditorium until 2016 (due to renovations) is a Sunday 4:30 screening of the Italian film Il Sorpasso -- a director Dino Rosi 1962 effort, described as a "sorely neglected ... commedia all’ italiana [that] reads as a sort of elegy on unfettered energies of the early 1960s — fast cars, sleek jazz, rock ’n’ roll, even fashion sense."

National Gallery will keep showing movies in the West Wing and elsewhere in the city, during the renovation period

Is there anywhere recommended to watch the world cup, preferably in
Alexandria/arlandria/Arlington? I am in town the weekend of July 4 to take
care of some stuff, but there are major games on the 4th and 5th. So far I
am considering rustica and Daniel o'connells.

Virginia Plain, Friday, 20 June 2014 23:57 (2 months ago) Permalink

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).

Insane Prince of False Binaries (Gukbe), Saturday, 21 June 2014 00:08 (2 months ago) Permalink

Babylon Cafe in a Bailey's Crossroads strip mall near Arlington & Alexandria has matches (lotsa Ethiopians as well as Hispanics go there). Plus the City Paper and W. Post have published links for lotsa places showing matches.
