“The D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation has revised its plans to overhaul the playground at Guy Mason Recreation Center [3600 Calvert St.] in response to community feedback,” reports George Altshuler in the Georgetown Current. Equipment built by volunteers in 2008 to honor the late Lyles Parachini of Davis Street will now be preserved in the upcoming renovation, Altshuler writes. In addition, the construction will create better stroller access to the park, which sits next to Wisconsin Ave., down a huge flight of steps. The city will present its final design for the Guy Mason playground at 6:30 p.m. March 12, according to the Current.

The liquor license for Sushi Ko (2309 Wisconsin Ave.) is officially in the dormant “safekeeping” status, after a December 11 vote by the ABC Board. Restaurant owner Daisuke Utagawa requested that the license be placed in safekeeping because he “decided to lease the space out to another tenant,” according to his application for the status. The ABC Board voted to allow the license to stay in safekeeping through June 11. The Sushi Ko building is currently for rent.

Rocklands (2418 Wisconsin Ave.) expects to open its expanded digs around the first of March, according to owner John Snedden. The barbecue joint is annexing 2416 Wisconsin Avenue, the former location of Max’s Best Homemade Ice Cream, which closed in October. Because Rocklands holds a full-service (CR) liquor license, it is required to get Alcoholic Beverage Control Board permission for the expansion, which will increase the number of available seats from 10 to 29 and add two bathrooms.
