Screen Shot 2015-06-08 at 9.24.56 AMAn exhibition by a local art duo called Duly Noted Painters opens Saturday, June 13 at Bourbon (2348 Wisconsin Ave.). “Similar to jazz musicians, at times we work together simultaneously,” the artists, Kurtis Ceppetelli and Matthew Malone, wrote in a statement. “Unlike traditional collaborations, our process does not adhere to a set formula dictating who does what. This allows for dramatic changes in mood, color, and feeling within each piece and leads to surprising and often unexpected results.” The mixed-media artwork will remain on display at the bar through June 20.

There’s a free opening event on June 13 at 6:30 pm. Guests who RSVP in advance will be eligible to win a free Duly Noted sketch. For more info, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sketch-show-tickets-17032239888.

 

Check out today’s schedule of events.

A building permit has been issued for a new Rite Aid in the old Glover Park Hardware space (2251 Wisconsin Ave.), according to the Washington Business Journal. “Work will include demolition and installation of a rear elevator and a sprinkler system,” WBJ reports.

The dearly missed hardware store will return to the neighborhood soon, in the vacant space next to Breadsoda (2233 Wisconsin Ave.). Due to delays related to the installation of a freight elevator, the store won’t reopen until mid-June at the earliest, the owner tells us.

John A. C. Umberger, a Gyrokinesis practitioner in Atlanta, is preparing to be certified as an instructor in Washington, D.C. As part of his preparation, he invites the public to attend one of his exercise classes at Elements Fitness & Wellness Center (2233 Wisconsin Ave., #217) for free.

Umberger’s free classes will be held May 19-21 at 9:30 each day, and at 6:30 pm on Tuesday May 19 and Thursday May 21. For more information, call 202-333-5252.

Screen shot 2015-03-28 at 7.40.30 AMLancaster Farm Fresh Cooperative, which delivers produce, herbs, and other farm products to members all summer, has changed its pickup location. With its former host, Glover Park Hardware, still building out a new location at 2233 Wisconsin Ave., the community-supported agriculture program will do its Glover Park dropoffs at Balance Gym (2121 Wisconsin Ave.) this year.

Full-season signups are open until April 24th, and the Summer CSA runs for 26 weeks from May through October. For more information or to sign up, visit lancasterfarmfresh.com or call 717-656-3533.

Reed Landry and Fritz Brogan, both owners of The Mason Inn (2408 Wisconsin Ave.), will open a “modern American restaurant” together at 1336 U Street, according to the Washington Business Journal. The two men also co-own Mission Mexican restaurant (1606 20th St.) in Dupont Circle and  the Georgetown nightclub Chinese Disco (3251 Prospect Ave.), formerly known as George. The pair have no plans to close Mason Inn, the paper reports. Last we heard, talks on a possible move from Mason Inn’s current location to 2412 Wisconsin Ave.—the vacant former home of JP’s Lounge—were ongoing.

Below is the text of a press release we just received:

It’s official—Glover Park Hardware has a new home in the neighborhood! After a two month search, local hardware store Glover Park Hardware is pleased to announce they’ve found a new storefront at 2233 Wisconsin Ave NW.

The new Glover Park Hardware boasts 7,500 sq. ft. of retail space and is located just a few doors away from their previous location at 2251 Wisconsin Ave NW. Customers can expect to see movement in the store as soon as March, with an anticipated re-opening date of April 2015.

Store owners Gina Schaefer and Marc Friedman are thrilled to stay in the neighborhood where it first opened in 2005. “We love our Glover Park Community and we were committed to reopening in this neighborhood,” says Schaefer.

Updates regarding the new store location will be posted on their website at www.acehardwaredc.com, and will also be sent out periodically via email and social media. To receive information on the grand re-opening celebration and stay informed on the move, please contact us via email at gloverfans@acehardwaredc.com.
