NSO in Your Neighborhood Plans for Columbia Heights

A few months ago, the National Symphony Orchestra announced that it selected Columbia Heights for the annual "In Your Neighborhood" series. This arts education outreach program brings NSO musicians to the community for a week's worth of workshops, concerts, and more. NSO in Your Neighborhood: Columbia Heights is scheduled for January 3-9, 2012.

Highlights for the week include:
  • January 4 at 7 pm - Chamber music at Acre 121
  • January 8 at 2 pm - Dance and music collaboration at Wonderland Ballroom.

Room 11 has brunch now!

So as of 12/9, Room 11 is joining the brunch club!

The Heights Life stopped in for a preview* a few weeks ago and we're happy to report that Room 11 didn't disappoint. The high quality, interesting food they have always served was re-imagined for brunch and paired with cocktails and bloody marys. The one thing we were particularly pleased with was the pricing. You can get an affordable, gourmet brunch.

Some items, such as the mushroom bruschetta, belong on the brunch and dinner menus. That stuff was good.

You can read a summary of the menu on the Room 11 website. Pictured here is a smoked salmon and fingerling potato dish with creme fraiche. It was fresh and filling without being heavy.

Well HELLO Thar!

So something around here got hijacked. Actually two things got hijacked...

Thing 1: Our time.

Thing 2: The blog feed.

We decided to resolve Thing 2 by returning to a blogspot domain and coming back to life! As for Thing 1, well we gave up on putting Soft Paws on the cats six toes and suddenly HOURS were added back to our days.

So, Columbia Heights... what's up?
