Mayfair & Pine (2218 Wisconsin Ave.) has announced “Soccer Saturday”: a full English breakfast available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays only, with Premier League soccer on three big-screen TVs starting at 10 a.m. The $9 meal includes eggs, Irish bangers, fried mushrooms, and streaky bacon; throw in an extra $2 for bottomless Tetley tea.

Tottenham Hotspur fans, be warned: chef Emily Sprissler is a lifelong supporter of  Arsenal.

UPDATE: Mayfair & Pine is now open for breakfast—including French toast, buttermilk pancakes, or their full English breakfast—both Saturdays and Sundays starting at 7:30 a.m.

From the September 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Work has begun on a manicure shop in the first floor of 2352 Wisconsin Ave., the former home of Shade & Shutter Shack. A building permit posted in the window lists the shop’s name as Head and Nails. A therapeutic massage business planned for the building’s upper floors has applied for zoning approval under the name of Massage Escape Spa Company. A Board of Zoning Adjustment hearing on the matter is scheduled for October 2.

From the September 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

On July 29 around 2 a.m., M. Mihalich and P. Labovich got into a fistfight in front of Z-Burger (2414 Wisconsin Ave.), according to police records. A nearby police officer separated the men. One of the men—it’s not clear which—told the officer that the other had spilled a drink over him. The purported spiller told the officer he didn’t remember spilling a drink on anybody. Both men were arrested for “disorderly affray,” but a search of D.C. court records did not reveal charges filed under either man’s name. The arrests may have led to citations—which are similar to traffic tickets—rather than arraignments, according to a spokeswoman for the courts.

From the September 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Two building permit applications have now been filed for 2412 Wisconsin Ave., the once and likely future home of JP’s Night Club. One permit would allow the construction of interior walls, while the other would permit “new bars and stages” as well as mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and carpentry work. The building’s exterior shell was completed in 2010, more than two years after the strip club’s original home was destroyed in a fire, but it has never been occupied.

Paul Kadlick, who in May represented himself to Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3B as part of a group that had recently purchased JP’s, did not return our calls. The club’s liquor license is still in the name of the man who bought the business last year, a shadowy figure named Brian Petruska who provided a nonworking number to ABRA and whose representative, Andrew Kline, does not return our calls. (We don’t know whether JP’s licensee Brian Petruska is the same Brian Petruska who graduated from Georgetown University in 2005 and founded the Petrus Group real estate investment firm, because that guy won’t return our calls either.)

From the September 2012 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Just after midnight on July 28, a patron of the Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Ave.), grabbed the wrist of another patron’s girlfriend and refused to let go, according to a police report. A third man approached the accused grabber to “redirect him away,” at which point the accused grabber grabbed a bottle and hit the would-be redirector in the face, causing minor injuries, according to the report. The accused grabber was charged with simple assault and pled not-guilty. An initial status hearing in the case is scheduled for August 24.

Update: The man entered a deferred prosecution agreement requiring him to complete 32 hours of community service. He successfully completed this service, and the charges against him were dismissed.
