Walking by Coyote Ugly (717 6th St NW) a couple of days ago, we noticed that the neon sign and other window ornaments were missing from the building. We’ll post a pic in the next 24 hours. As far as we know, the theme of the new bar is still up in the air, but we think that it will be more of a neighborhood bar.
We walked by the BodySmith (575 7th St NW) storefront and we noticed that the interior wall had been removed to reveal: nothing. Looks like the rumors that it may be opening are false. An anonymous comment also explains how BodySmith wrote him/her a letter saying that they were abandoning plans.
E Street Repaving
Jeff wrote in on the E Street article to note that when E Street is repaved and remarked, it will feature a quite different configuration than in the past. E Street will feature bicycle lanes running from North Capitol to 13th as well as several turn lanes to try to alleviate traffic congestion. Read more about the Downtown Bike Lane Network.
