Jazz in the Garden

Art, Washington DC Comments Off on Jazz in the Garden
Jazz in the Garden (National Gallery of the Art)The Jazz in the Garden Series is in full swing. Every Friday between Memorial and Labor day, the National Gallery of Art offers a free Jazz concert at their Sculpture garden located on the Washington Mall. Between 5:00 and 8:30pm the garden is filled with a picnicking yuppy crowd, feasting on brought in snacks Sangria and smuggled in outside drinks. A very relaxing way to end the work week and chime in the weekend.

Ren’s Ramen (Silver Springs, MD)

Food, Washington DC Comments Off on Ren’s Ramen (Silver Springs, MD)
Miso RamenAfter having closed in Fall ’10, Ren’s Ramen has reopened at its new location in Wheaton (11403 Amherst Ave, Silver Springs, MD 20902). Their miso ramen with stewed fatty pork and roasted pork is delicious as it was at their old location. At $20, a fully laden bowl of ramen doesn’t really qualify as cheap eats, but it is still well worth it. Ren’s is cash only and has limited seating. More pictures after the break.

Shake Shack Opens in DC

Food, Washington DC Comments Off on Shake Shack Opens in DC

Shake Shack opened its 11th US location in Washington, DC. It has replaced Fuddruckers between Fly Lounge and Public on the corner of Connecticut Ave and Jefferson Pl. The hormone & antibiotic free angus beef were good as were the fries, but what really stood out was the custard. I highly recommend standing in line to checking it out.

Metro Considers Blue Line Split

Washington DC Comments Off on Metro Considers Blue Line Split

Metro sent around a press release yesterday announcing that they were considering alternating rush hour Blue line trains between their regular route that follows the Orange line and a new route that would send them up along the Yellow line.During weekday peak hours, six out of ten trains that originate every hour at the Blue Line Franconia-Springfield station would follow their normal course through Rosslyn and across the river to Foggy Bottom. The other four trains would instead split off at the Pentagon Station and follow the Yellow Line all the way to Greenbelt.

The plan would theoretically solve two problems: First, it would do for peak time service along the Green line what the off-peak Yellow line extension did for the same route. WMATA officials told WTOP that they’ve noticed increased peak time demand for destinations in the eastern parts of downtown D.C. like Gallery Place, L’Enfant, Navy Yard, or Columbia Heights. Second, it would ease the Orange/Blue line bottleneck where they meet at Rosslyn.
