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 (nine 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.

National Gallery of Art is honoring Canada's 150th anniversary with its film program July 1st through 8th, so that means on the afternoon of the 4th of July they are showing a 1965 doc on Leonard Cohen!

July 4 at 1:00
East Building Auditorium

Four classic shorts from the National Film Board of Canada begin with Norman McLaren’s legendary animation Begone Dull Care (1949, 8 minutes) and his famous pixilation Neighbours (1952, 8 minutes). Next is City of Gold (Colin Low and Wolf Koenig, 1957, 22 minutes), a groundbreaking compilation of archival and contemporary photography depicting author Pierre Berton’s childhood in Dawson City and his father’s involvement in the Klondike Gold Rush. Finally, Ladies and Gentlemen . . . Mr. Leonard Cohen — the first documentary portrait of the famous poet and songwriter, released two years before his first album — captures Cohen’s imagination and candor during live performance and casual interaction (Don Owen and Donald Brittain, 1965, 44 minutes). (Total running time 82 minutes)

I worked for the City Paper many years (and many changes of ownership) ago; in my mind it already left the city when it transferred most functions to Atlanta, leaving only the tiniest reportorial footprint here.

No matter who owns it, I suppose they could continue that way - like those Clear Channel radio stations where everything but the weather and traffic emanates from a central computer, and they keep a local sheen by peppering in requests and dedications like "This one goes out to Laura in Columbia Heights!" Loose Lips and a few other things may live on forever in some form, but the picture for print is dismal and has been for ages.

The Nashville-based Southcomm that bought it from the Atlanta folks doesn't want to hold on to any more papers/websites that aren't bringing in a big enough profit. So just as the not-connected Baltimore City Paper is shutting down Nov. 1st; the Washington City Paper may get shut down 12-31. Loose lips on DC politics, various cover stories, local music coverage, citylight previews of events that don't get highlighted elsewhere (some club dance events, punk, African, etc.), other voices on DC restaurants, etc. will be gone. They have never marketed their web presence well enough to get more readers (be they college kids, longtime locals, 20-something millennials) and they have cut back on newspaper availability, plus the advertising staff hasn't been able to get more ads, so here we are.

They cut back on the # of newspaper boxes and assume everyone knows their website, gets their morning daily news & food & music aggregation email, gets their "To Do Today" and "To Do This Weekend" emails, or follows their 2 twitter accounts. Only fanatics like me do.

I find the paper in Shirlington (I work out in VA) and sometimes in DC. I email, FB, & Instagram links to my little previews and reviews and post 'em over on ILM.
