Penn Quarter – The building at 6th and F St NW almost became a micro-residential building with living units under 300 square feet. Could you live in under 300 square feet? Would you need a larger space elsewhere to make it work? [Urban Turf DC]

Penn Quarter – We mentioned this on Friday but it bears repeating. Art All Night is coming this upcoming Saturday night with a number of venues displaying art or artistic performances open until 3 am. See you there! [Art All Night DC]
Bladensburg Road NE – For those who have been around DC long enough, they remember Bardo Rodeo on Wilson Blvd in Arlington. We spent many a happy hour after work there. Along with the Capitol City Brewing Company whose first location is at 12th and NY Ave NW, Bardo was one of the area’s first very successful brewpubs in the mid-1990s. It may be coming back to Bladensburg Road after a long absence. [WaPo]
