The first to come and the first to go in 2011. Here's the storefront business update in Georgetown.
The transformation of Georgetown’s land along the Potomac River was completed four months ago. After years in the making, Georgetown Waterfront Park now stands as a stupendous achievement for this town and the District of Columbia. It had many advocates, but the Friends of Georgetown Waterfront Park, never took its eyes off the prize.
A big, new restaurant requires a big ribbon cutting. Clyde's Restaurant Group's The Hamilton got one with Mayor Vincent Gray and D.C council members and Clyde’s corporate officers Jan. 9.
Georgetown's and Burleith's advisory neighborhood commission (ANC2E) met Jan. 4 at Georgetown Visitation Prep.
The new year clean-up has begun. The Department of Public Works is now collecting Christmas trees and wreaths to be picked up curbside through Jan. 14.
Your sweet wait is over! On Thursday, Jan. 5, at 10 a.m., Pie Sisters of Georgetown will open its doors at 3423 M St., N.W.
Advisory Neighborhood Commission 2E -- Georgetown, Burleith and Hillandale -- will meet tonight, Jan. 3, 6:30 p.m.
U.S. Park Police Sgt. Michael Boehm, who suffered a fatal heart attack responding to an injured man near Key Bridge at the C&O Canal towpath Dec. 16, was eulogized and honored Dec. 28.
The reorganized Georgetown Senior Center met for Christmas lunch Dec. 19 at St. John's Episcopal Church on O Street.
For sheer size and sense of fun, the big winner in Georgetown's Christmas decorations has to go to Jack Davies of Prospect Street. His 20-feet-tall, inflated Santa Claus waves, "Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas" from the back of his house with its grand vista of the Potomac River to all entering D.C. from Virginia. While many Georgetown homes are trimmed from evergreens, red ribbons and small lights, Davies's Santa makes for a happy surprise.
A man discovered on the towpath beneath Key Bridge after 5 p.m. and a United States Park Police officer responding to the emergency both died Dec. 16.
The Georgetown Business Association held its annual meeting and awards presentations for the holiday season Dec. 14 at Dumbarton House on Q Street. The mood was festive in tune with the Christmas season as Mayor Vincent Gray and councilmen Jack Evans and Vincent Orange addressed GBA members and friends.
Rock/jazz pianist ELEW (Eric Lewis) held court with his mighty piano in the studio hall of Halcyon House Dec. 13 to benefit Sasha Bruce Youthwork, which provides shelter and counseling to runaway, abused and neglected children and their families. The D.C. non-profit – which began in Georgetown’s Christ Church – was enlarged by donations from Evangeline Bruce, wife of Ambassador David Bruce, following the death of their daughter Sasha who had helped troubled youths as a volunteer.
The Hamilton, Clyde's Restaurant Group's new 37,000-square-foot restaurant at 14th and F Streets, is making the scene in no small way.
