The Week Ahead…& Some Photos from the Past Week

ANC6B’s Executive Committee met last Tuesday night to set the agenda for the January meeting of the full ANC. A couple of things to watch – CM Charles Allen will update on the ANC redistricting process (and is likely to do so for all Ward 6 ANCs) plus, 6B – like the other Ward 6 ANCs will elect new officers in January.

Watkins Elementary School was in the news twice last week. Last Wednesday, the Washington Post reported that a Watkins staffer who had previously been convicted of fraud in New Jersey had directed third graders to reenact Holocaust scenes while working as a librarian at the school. The Washington Teachers’ Union, according to the Post, said the librarian had been placed on paid leave pending an investigation. The next day, the Post reported MPD had been charged with the murder of a flag football player after a game on Watkins field in October. See here:

Story Time Kidz announces the coming soon of a day care center at 1301 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE. See here:

Pizza Iola at 1123 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, has reopened under new management.

Zoca & Crush, a Mexican restaurant owned by the same family that brought Harvest Tide Steak House to 7th Street, SE, will open at 319 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, in the former Stanton & Greene. The former bar is sporting a new coat of paint and a liqour license application placard, which will come up before ANC6B in January. The restaurant’s arrival has been expected, as previously repoerted by Eater DC. See here: 319 Penn Ave SE was briefly contemplated as home for As You Are, a new LGBTQ, bar before the owner withdrew the offer to lease. As You Are now plans to open in the former District Soul Food on Barracks Row.

Finally, The Fridge has some new paint, here…
