DSW in Columbia Heights on Hold or Still Happening?

Last year, we posted about the possibility of DSW coming to Columbia Heights. A job posting on the shoe retailer's website indicated they were hiring a store manager for a DCUSA location. Now a review of the store's job listings only show positions for area Virginia and Maryland stores; nothing in DC.

But this week, the Prince of Petworth wrote about a tipster who says otherwise.

What say you: Will we ever get a new anchor store in DCUSA?

Room 11 Announces Expansion

From even before it opened in August 2009, the joke was that Room 11 got its name due to the number of people able to fit inside. Well, our cozy wine bar at 11th and Lamont streets is getting a little bigger.

Today, the owners sent an announcement that they are expanding to the space next door, currently occupied by Jeans 'N' Things.

"The only regular complaint we get is that there are not enough seats, so we are looking forward to having more room to serve our loyal guests," wrote Room 11's Dan Searing in an email.

Construction will begin soon and the projected completion date is early summer.
