Slinging Smirnoff Ice for a Cause

Giving away all its profits to charity has yet to prove a fruitful model for temporarily closed Shaw "philanthropub" Cause. (So far, there haven't been any profits.) Now, Thomas Foolery, the wacky new bar from Mr. Yogato owner/rocket scientist Steve Davis, is trying a different gimmick to raise money for nonprofits: giving away all its tips. Over the last three weeks, Thomas Foolery has […]

Game On: A Rocket Scientist Opens the Wackiest Bar in Washington

A couple drinking Smirnoff Ice meditates over a Ouija board as the lights of Thomas Foolery fade from green to yellow to orange. Across the small cramped room, groups of 20- or 30-somethings play Mario Kart Wii and Connect 4. Bartenders serve up grilled cheeses and mini-bottles of Bacardi from behind a bar stocked with […]

Mr. Yogato owner Steve Davis opens his first bar and restaurant, Thomas Foolery, on Wednesday at 11 a.m., replacing doughnut fume-plagued Zeke's DC Donutz at 2029 P St. NW.

The landlord, Grosvenor Urban Retail, even filed a lawsuit over […]

Code Pinkberry: Why Does D.C. Have So Much Frozen Yogurt?

Sitting in the fashionable plasticity of Pinkberry in Fairfax, I’m sampling my very first cup of the famous fro-yo, trying to imagine those heady days back in 2005 when the yogurt shop debuted in West Hollywood and created a whole new kind of addict. At the time, Angelenos were willing to suffer parking tickets, neighborhood […]

Five Reasons Y&H Doesn’t Give a Damn About Pinkberry’s Arrival in D.C.

NBCWashington broke the news yesterday with prose that bordered on the orgasmic: Pinkberry is coming to D.C.! (I'm not sure how many exclamation points to include here, but the general tone of the item merits at least four, I think.) Now understand, the item names no location, not even a neighborhood. Just the promise of […]

Young & Hungry Dining Guide Staff Picks: Mr. Yogato

Right around early May, I need to start budgeting for frozen yogurt. I’m probably spending between $15 to $20 a week. And with cravings lasting through Indian summer, that’s like $350 in annual FroYo expenditures. I mostly blame Mr. Yogato. In the last year or so, D.C. has been inundated with new shops selling sweet-and-sour […]
