Warehouse Theater

When the research gods decided I should do no more (long story, I may tell later) I wandered from the Washington DC City Museum and decided I would head home. But on the way I stopped by the Warehouse Theater, which is also a coffee shop. Luckily they have tea since I don’t drink coffee.

Besides coffee they have art. If I had $700 I had nothing to do with and more wall space there was a piece I’d love to have in my house. Sadly, small walls and all money goes to the house.

At the same time they were rehearsing for a political piece of puppet theater. Dialog good, voices not so good.

I looked around and thought this would make a cool meeting spot. It’s close to the Mt. Vernon Sq. metro. There is space to just chill.

Shaw House Tour

Sunday, October 26, 2003, 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Shaw is much more than just the neighborhood where the new Washington

Convention Center is located. Residents, businesses, and institutions have

been working for years to renovate 100-plus-year-old buildings, turning one

of Washington’s oldest neighborhoods into the place to be in Washington, DC.

Some of these outstanding architecture and interior design efforts have been

recognized with feature articles in the Washington Post and Metro Weekly.

Come discover some of DC’s best-kept secrets as you visit:

· One of the oldest churches in the District, and its “secret garden.”

· Three row houses that have been converted into a complex dedicated to

public service, including a remarkable chapel.

· A bed-and-breakfast in a former mortuary.

· A former run-down rooming house that now boasts marble floors and an

impressive collection of local artists’ work.

· A former lumber store converted into office space, featuring lots of

elaborate woodwork and skylights.

· And other newly-renovated homes filled with surprises.

Along the way, you’ll meet some of the proud homeowners, entrepreneurs,

organizations, architects, designers, and developers that are helping to make

Shaw’s renaissance a reality. And also see some of the diamonds-in-the-rough

that still await restoration. Sponsored by Shaw Main Streets, Inc.
