Closing in on new CH bar options

Ruth Samuelson over at the City Paper has an 11th Street update. Room 11 work keeps plugging along.

We saw Room 11's Dan Searing at the last punch event he hosted. He told us that they are now mostly waiting on inspections and permits. They are also working to see how they can keep up the punch concept, and he floated the idea of a Sunday or weekend afternoon regular punch affair. The Heights Life loves this because Sunday afternoons, not necessarily Saturday nights, make it a good neighborhood bar.

And - here is a photo of THL testing out the stools they will be using at Room 11. They had just arrived and will be covered for additional comfort.

Many of us will be watching very closely to see whether this place lives up to its voluntary agreement and keeps the noise and trash and loitering down.

Anonymous 8:03 must be either "Bronat", "DCDireWolf", or some other weirdo who believes a tiny wine bar, run by experienced local businesspeople, will be the ruination of 11th Street.

I am SO excited about this. This is going to help revitalize the area. Soon we'll have Meridian Pint too and the work on Sherman Avenue to make it more beautiful and pedestrian friendly is slated to begin in 2010 - it's part of the stimulus package now.
