SPRING VALLEY—Jettie's restaurateur Bo Blair talked to the Washington Post about his 20 various restaurants and bars, including his new Navy Yard concept Due South. The Post mentions that Blair is close to signing a lease for Millie's, a spin-off of the original Millie's in Nantucket. It will be located in Spring Valley near American University's law school and 40 families each loaned Blair $25,000 to get the restaurant going. [WaPo]

NAVY YARD—Handmade ice cream shop Ice Cream Jubilee launched ice cream sundae gift boxes this month. It's exactly what it sounds like: the sundae boxes are packed with pints of ice cream, cones and festive rainbow and chocolate sprinkles. Choose between a $28 small sundae box, which includes two pints of ice cream and six sugar cones with sprinkles, or the $58 large box, which includes five pints of ice cream, 10 sugar cones, homemade cookies and homemade fudge sauce and salted caramel. These can also be ordered by subscription. [EaterWire]
