But whatever, we went to brunch at The Heights - as usual. For a snowmageddon day, Columbia Heights is bustling! The Heights was seriously bumpin'. We were able to grab some bar seats and sample two of the new menu items.
On the way back we thought we might hit Target, having heard it was open. But whoa! Half of DC was at DCUSA and Target and Bed Bath & Beyond had CLOSED! Also, we hear the gym closed earlier, too. Payless was open. And Chipotle. And Starbucks. Not sure about Radiance MediSpa, but if you miss your botox appointment you can just do what I did and try making a face imprint in the snow. Or don't... I still can't feel my left cheek.

this one for instance. It recently appeared on 14th Street by the CH
metro stop heading north. This is one way to make people actually
park at DCUSA. Have you seen any others?

Still need convincing? Orr sums it up best: "it's going to be really
fun and informal, kind of like an ideal night at Derby plus good beer."

But - Commonwealth is showing Georgia Tech - Clemson. RedRocks only has one (or two) TVs. The Heights usually has one on sports and one on news, but it's not a good place to watch football. I would have to head to Solly's or Nellie's to have any hope of catching my game (or of course - hit the Husker bar all the way over on Capitol Hill, love the Union Pub and their cheap Bud Light!). But - I can't really get to U Street in the break halftime allows.
So... I'll just stay home and drink my free beer and yell, "SSSSUUUHHH!" at my own personal TV. But I'm just saying - if we did indeed have a Columbia Heights Sports Bar, I'd totally go spend money there RIGHT NOW.
Oh shit - Texas just scored. And I have to yell at the TV in private!

We Love DC hands out neighborhood superlatives. Columbia Heights is named "Easiest Neighborhood to Live In Without a Car."
Washington Business Journal reports that Columbia Heights will lose its Target bragging rights for December. Georgetown is set to get a Target To-Go pop-up store for the holiday shopping season.
Same goes for our Pete's Apizza bragging rights. They will be announcing a second location soon.
The Washingtonian Best Bites blog (and others) are super excited (me too!) for today's opening of Cork Market on 14th Street.

longer 24 hours. The new hours are 6 am to Midnight. I noticed this
when waiting for the bus this morning. Did this start today because
it's the first of the month, or have I been oblivious to the sign? Let
us know in the comments below.
While I rarely stop by the CVS anymore it did allow for some fun late-
night shopping trips like 3 am mac 'n cheese.
