8 Reasons I Love U St. Corridor

March was my eight year anniversary of living on U St. Corridor. While the landscape has changed, the vibe has not. Here are my 8 favorite things about my ‘hood.


1. The 9:30 Club. It’s one of the best music venues in the city and it’s literally across the street. I love that I can wander over there on a random Tuesday and hear something spectacular.


2. The farmer’s market on Saturday’s May-November. I haven’t been able to go this year because of work and I’m not a happy camper. I love the rows of seasonal fruit and vegetables, the bakery stand and the Amish farmers pedaling their organic pork and beef.


3. The Metro is a two block walk. I rarely ride the Metro but when I do, I’m glad I don’t have to schlep twenty minutes to a stop.


4. The roof top deck of my building. It’s stunning and I love sitting up there with a book and a glass of wine.


5. The multiple bars and restaurants in the ‘hood. I can walk in any direction and there’s great options. The best part-new places open constantly!


6. While most of DC is obsessed with the Trader Joe’s down the street, I love Yes! Organic. I run in, grab whatever stuff I need and run out.


7. Gallagher and Graham is a locally owned spirits shop that sells beer, wine and alcohol. What else do you need?
 
 
8. The Lot at Atlantic Plumbing. While I know this won’t be around forever (it’s where the new Whole Foods will be built), it’s fun to wander over and check out the events. The video above is from a couple of weeks ago when they had karaoke. While this lady was wonderful, the people who followed were not. Life on U St.!

What do you love about your neighborhood?
