The Needle: You’re Only as Cool as Forbes Says You Are

DC Cool, in Theory: Forbes anointed D.C. the coolest city in America. Being named "cool" in an arbitrary list by a business magazine is bad enough, but the ranking also opened the flood gates to equally inane reaction pieces and a wave of faux-self-deprecating tweets. Better luck next year, D.C. -6
DC Cool, in Practice: A D.C. man asks if [...]

The Needle: Save the PBRs

Chopped House: Mythology Modern Chop House/Lore Lounge is opening on H Street NE next year and wants to start a wave of more upscale eateries and bars in the area. First, there are already upscale places there. And second, that sounds like a terrible idea—everyone loves tater tots and PBR. -4

6th and History NE

Last week’s announcement that a Whole Foods will open up on the 600 block of H Street NE drew lots of attention to this once-dilapidated stretch of pavement.

The Needle: Book ‘Em Danno Edition

Kiwi Watch: The National Zoo clucks over its latest addition, a kiwi chick that hatched overnight: "As devoted kiwi cam watchers may already know, a second kiwi chick hatched yesterday, March 7! At 4:15 a.m. that morning, the cam still showed a pipping egg. By the time keepers arrived just before 6 a.m. they found [...]

The Needle: Who Wants It? Edition

Who Wants To Buy A Diner?: Having your restaurant close up shop for lack of business is no great indignity; dining is a tough market, after all. But having to sell it on eBay afterwards must sting a bit. The erstwhile Capital City Diner is doing just that, though. The good news: It could be [...]
