From the February 2010 Glover Park Gazette:

Starting today, Surfside at 2444 Wisconsin offers its patrons free evening and weekend parking in the Wachovia Bank lot near the restaurant’s 37th Street entrance. Designated spots in the lot are reserved for Surfside customers until midnight every night, starting at 5:30 pm Monday through Thursday; at 6 pm Friday; and at noon Saturday and Sunday.

But watch where you park: three spaces in the lot are still reserved for patrons of Rocklands Barbeque at 2418 Wisconsin round the clock.

From the January 2010 Glover Park Gazette:

The lender has taken title to 2136 Wisconsin; now, it’s trying to take possession. The drab tan apartment house near Holy Rood Cemetery was foreclosed on in October, but the former owner did not turn over the keys. Nor did tenant Tyrone Green move out. Green was the host of a series of paid, unlicensed open-bar parties at the building last year, for one of which the former owner, a corporation called 2136 Wisconsin LLC, has been fined $4,000.

Now the lender-turned-owner, Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union, has filed suit against both the former owner and the former property-management firm, GreenLight International LLC, of which Green is CEO. The case will be heard on January 13. If Mid-Atlantic prevails, it can file papers to have Green evicted.

The D.C. Office of the Tenant Advocate told us previously that after a foreclosure, any tenant must be offered the chance to stay on at a fair market rent. But Stephen Hessler, an attorney for Mid-Atlantic, says that law may not apply in this case, in part because there is no known, legitimate lease. “The bottom line is this: there is no authorized or recognized or proper residential tenant at that property,” Hessler says.

Reached via email, Green declined to comment.

Like the Grog & Tankard before it, Gin & Tonic at 2408 Wisconsin now closes at 2 a.m. weeknights and 3 a.m. weekends, thanks to a December 2 decision by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board. As reported in last month’s “ANC 3B News,” the Advisory Neighborhood Commission agreed to support longer hours for the bar in exchange for a series of concessions, including an end to “all you can drink” specials and more pedestrian-friendly management of its rope line.

“Moe” better news

From the January 2010 Glover Park Gazette:

A Department of Public Works graffiti-removal squad descended on the commercial strip in mid-November to clear away the large-scale scrawlings of some taggers who had hit the neighborhood one night in late October. The words “Moe,” “Nore,” “Ball$,” and “ATB” were scrubbed from the CVS at 2226 Wisconsin and the old Pizza Hut at 2338 Wisconsin, among other buildings.

The cleanup crew left behind many smaller, scattered tags inflicted by Moe and his pals that same, crazy night, but Petar Dimtchev, the Mayor’s liaison for community relations and services in Ward 3, said he would provide graffiti-removal kits to affected property owners.
Dimtchev invited citizens with graffiti or blight concerns to call the Ward 3 Help Desk at 202-671-2337 or to contact him at petar.dimtchev@dc.gov or Drew Del Junco, outreach and service specialist for Ward 3, at andrew.deljunco@dc.gov.

If you’re in the mood for free live music, look no further than your own commercial strip.
