DC's Largest Restaurant-Owned Apiary; A Taco Truck Flips

FOGGY BOTTOMFounding Farmers has announced that it's teaming up with George Washington University to form an urban apiary that it claims is "the largest known restaurant-owned urban apiary in the country." The restaurant installed six beehives atop the university's Lisner Hall, to join four existing hives. A press release says they expect about 10 pounds of honey per hive in the first year, followed by anywhere between 20 and 120 pounds per hive in 2012. [EaterWire]

GEORGETOWN—Founding Farmers' sister restaurant, though, doesn't have such good news today. Farmers & Fishers is still reeling from the April flooding of Georgetown's Washington Harbour and isn't likely to reopen until the second quarter of 2012 at the earliest. [WBJ]

FOOD TRUCKS—The District Taco truck had a rough day today, flipping over on a Rosslyn highway ramp. TBD checks in and finds that the truck is full of guacamole, beans and rice — but that it could be back out on the road as soon as tomorrow. [ARLnow, TBD]
