From the December 2014-January 2015 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

 A new Glover Park business brings its clients together to solve a puzzle: how to get out of the place. At Escape Room DC (2300 Wisconsin Ave., Suite G-102), up to eight visitors get locked in a room together; the group has 45 minutes to figure out the combination to the safe that holds the key. (Co-owner Ginger Flesher watches the proceedings on closed-circuit video and provides hints if the group gets stumped.) Escape Room DC opened on October 16.

Flesher, a retired math teacher, and her husband, Darren Sonnier, got the idea for the business during a trip to Europe over the summer. “In each of the cities we visited, we found that there were live escape rooms,” Flesher recalls. “We thought we’d try one when we got back to DC and discovered that there weren’t any,” apart from one in College Park, Maryland, that locks its clients in a room with an actor playing a zombie.

The couple, who live in Chantilly, hunted all over the region for an appropriate spot for their business. They needed somewhere their clients would feel safe walking after dark. “When I drove into Glover Park, I said ‘This is the place’ before I even saw the building,” Flesher recalls. “It’s a very friendly neighborhood.” Escape Room DC costs $28 per person. Entry is on Hall Place, around the corner from Starbucks. For more information visit escaperoomlive.com.

From the October 2011 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

BodySmith (2300 Wisconsin Ave.) is staying put, despite a “for rent” sign outside the gym. When the sign appeared, neighbors wondered whether the personal-training facility were planning a move, but a staffer there tells us the sign refers to office space for rent upstairs from the workout space. “We’re staying. We’re here,” he assures.
