Lost Capitol Hill: Lt. Col. Franklin Wharton’s Wharf

July 28th, 2014 by Robert Pohl · Capitol Hill

tnWhen researching various parts of the Hill, the most interesting part is when some intriguing character becomes involved in the story. Often, they make for better stories than the actual landmark under scrutiny. This certainly goes for Lieutenant Colonel Franklin Wharton, who is far more interesting than the wharf that he owned briefly around the time of the Burning of Washington.

The Happiest Hour: Atlas Brew Works, Now Serving Pints!

July 25th, 2014 by Maria Helena Carey · Near Northeast/Atlas District

We have incurred the holy wrath of some of you out there by trying to extend the boundaries of Capitol Hill before. However, this is such a delicious piece of news, we hope even the most stringent by-the-book boundary supporters won’t mind this foray beyond H Street, because BEER.

As some of you may know, the District has had a strict policy regarding the amount of beer breweries are allowed to serve at their facilities. Previously, breweries in the District were only allowed to offer free tastings or flights. This past July 14th, the law changed: according to WTOP, “[b]reweries will be able to sell beer for consumption between 1 p.m. and 9 p.m. seven days per week.”

The law change is our mitzvah: Atlas Brew Works, located at 2052 West Virginia Ave NE #102 — nestled close to Gallaudet University in the Trinidad neighborhood– will hold their first Happy Hour today, July 25th, starting at 5 pm. Happy Hour at a brewery close to home, and with this eerily perfect weather? Look for Paradise no further, John Milton: we totally found it.
