The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board yesterday voted to allow The Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Ave.) to serve alcohol on a new rooftop deck. Construction permits will be filed this week, and the deck should open in September, says co-owner Fritz Brogan. The bar’s ownership agreed to several noise-reduction measures—including encircling the deck with a wall—to resolve formal protests filed by Advisory Neighborhood Commission 3B and a group of near neighbors. “We’re excited for the rooftop to open,” says Brogan. “We’re glad we were able to find common ground with the ANC, and we’re looking forward for the rooftop being a place that all of our Glover Park neighbors can enjoy.”

From the April 2013 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
Late last year, Einstein Bros. Bagels applied for a building permit to construct a 55-seat restaurant at 2233 Wisconsin Ave., in the former home of Vespa and Fan Fair. Because the proposed restaurant would use disposable utensils and food-warming equipment, it is considered a fast food establishment under District zoning regulations. This means it needs a zoning exception to operate at its proposed location. In early March, Einstein applied for this exception, and its zoning case is scheduled to be heard on June 4.
Einstein’s had a shop near Safeway until the middle of 2011, when it closed due to redevelopment of the property. Joseph A. Bank clothiers now occupies that space.
The newly expanded shopping arcade at 1815 Wisconsin Ave., next door to (and owned by) Safeway, will be home to a Noodles & Company fast food shop and one of the area’s first two locations of The Dry Bar, a blowouts-only hair salon, the DCMud blog reports. Construction of The Dry Bar is expected to begin on August 2, the blog states.
The cemetery at 35th St. and Wisconsin Ave. “serves as a solemn gatekeeper to the neighborhood of Glover Park,” writes Jonathan Gillis in the Georgetown Hoya. “Inside, however, Holy Rood is a treasure trove of American history. Home to the remains of former slaves, Irish and German immigrants and at least one veteran of the Revolutionary War, the graveyard is also, strangely enough, the property of Georgetown University.” Gillis—and his main source Carlton Fletcher, Glover Park’s neighborhood historian—provide an enlightening look at the past and possible future of this hallowed (and valuable) ground.
From the November 2011 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:
A police officer driving north in a blue Chevy Impala hit a 30-year-old Glover Park woman—and her dog—while they were crossing Wisconsin Ave. in the crosswalk at 35th St. on October 5, according to a police report. The woman was taken to George Washington University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The incident is under investigation by the police department’s Major Crash Unit.
