LOGAN CIRCLE— Remember how Going Out Gurus readers suggested names for that new pub opening in the old ACKC location on 14th Street? Turns out owner Aaron Gordon won't use the winning name, Woody Creek, after all. He's going to name it Drafting Table instead, in honor of the mid-20th century drafting tables that will be used as decor. The global beer selection, classic cocktail list, and comfort food-heavy menu remains the same. [WaPo]

DUPONT CIRCLE— Scott Circle's Nage Bistro is currently closed till September 4 for a summer break, and Prince of Petworth speculates that the restaurant will be renovated in the meantime. [PoP]
