D.C.’s Christmas Bar is Coming Back (And It’s Bigger), Plus More Intel

Mini news bites for the morning

Miracle on 7th Street

Jolly good news

Here’s a reason to get excited for the Christmas season already. Pop-up Christmas-themed bar Miracle on 7th Street is coming back — and it’s now taking over three different Derek Brown bars instead of just one. The bar had everything: dreidel chandeliers, dinosaur Nativity scenes, Santa tiki cocktails. Here are some scenes from last year’s festiveness. It all kicks off the Friday after Thanksgiving.

Book Club

Anthony Bourdain fans, here’s a look inside his new cookbook, “Appetites.” Cool cover illustration. [E]

Half-smoke artists

Meet the company behind the half-smokes enjoyed at Ben’s Chili Bowl and now, Sweet Home Cafe. The company, Manger’s, is Baltimore-based. [BS]
