Au revoir!

Just a quick note to let everyone know that Mr. and Mrs. 14th & You are taking off on a week-long and much needed vacation to the lovely Province of Quebec. Though I've been trying to hone my French speaking skills, we're undoubtedly going to be relying on the Quebecois and their propensity to learn English (and perhaps frantic hand gestures) to get us through. Hopefully the world won't blow up in our absence, and we'll soon get back to blogging about our little neck of the woods.

A bientot!

I was walking by the 14th & U intersection today and I noticed a new restaurant coming there.... "Restaurant Marvin" at 2007 14th Street. Have you heard anything about this place?

I hadn't noticed that yet. We'll try to check it out and report back.

Here's the scoop from Prince of Petworth,

October 16th, 2007

Thanks to Bill from Petworth News for alerting me to the newest bar to hit U Street. The bar that everyone has been waiting for, Marvin, is set for a soft opening tomorrow night. Marvin is located on 14th Street just north of U Street and is set to have a bit of a Belgian flavor. Why? Because the bar is named after Marvin Gaye who apparently spent a few years in Belgium. What has folks most excited is that this bar comes from the owner of Eighteenth St. Lounge, you know the Thievery Corporation guys. So get ready for the soft opening on Wed. night and I’ll see you there. And remember this is the bar Fritz, from the Washington Post Gurus, is most excited about it.

Hopefully it will be open this weekend…
