Fire Claims Another Restaurant

Over on The Washington Oculus, Mike Grass is reporting that Fasika's Ethiopian Restaurant in Adams Morgan is out of commission after a fire.

In other fire news, Fritz Hahn over at washingtonpost.com reports that rumors of Capitol Lounge, which was gutted by a fire back in May, reopening soon are false.

The Examiner quotes a different Cap Lounge manager today saying the opening is in the works:

Hmm, maybe some employees are more optimistic than others? Regardless, they will reopen, which is good news for its fans.

Very likely the beer truck was for Sonoma, 2 doors to the right of Cap Lounge.

They had 6 (?) beers on tap last time I was there, including Magic Hat (VT) and Anchor Steam (CA). But I couldn't resist the Guinness......not something I expected to find at a wine bar.

I spoke to someone I think was the owner (Eli?) who said they were excited for the Lounge to open back up and that the block has seemed "strangely quiet," that the Lounge brings a "more social" mix to the street.
