CAPITOL RIVERFRONT— New restaurant Park Tavern from Capitol Hill restaurateur Xavier Cervera will open at noon on Friday for appetizers and drinks to mark the grand opening of DC's newest green space, Canal Park. Park Tavern sits right in the middle of the new park, and features outdoor seating alongside the skating rink. Though the restaurant's official opening isn't for a few week, when it does open Chef Robert Wood will focus on flatbreads, steaks, and fish, all from a wood-fired oven. [Washington City Paper]

U STREET— DJ store and website Beatport named U Street Music Hall's soundsytem as the second best in the entire country, with New York City's Cielo Club topping the list. DJs like SBTRKT, Annie Mac, and Skream & Benga all rave about the sound in the "bass dungeon," as Beatport puts it. [Beatport]
