The Passenger Hosts a Benefit; Two Restaurants Shutter

CHARITY WIRE—Clear your calendars for a night of charitable drinking on September 24 when the Passenger hosts a fundraiser night for bartender Kathleen Schroeder, who was hit by a car last week and needs help paying her medical bills. All of the tips and 10 percent of the house are going to help her out. [Facebook]

MT VERNON SQUARE—Prince of Petworth reports that Marrakesh has closed its doors on New York Avenue and, according to Rasmus Auctioneers, "will make a complete liquidation of all its 2 bars, substantial night club assets, kitchen and exotic decorative accents." [PoP]

ROSSLYN—Meanwhile, the Washington Business Journal has news of the impending shutter of a Rosslyn stalwart, Santa Fe Cafe. Apparently, the lease was up and the owners couldn't afford the prospect of increased rent so they've decided to shut it down in late October. No word on new tenants for the space yet. [WBJ]
