Beer...not here

What happens when a brewery’s CEO shares his allegiance to Donald Trump: there’s now a campaign in D.C. to boycott the beer. More than 15 bars have stopped carrying the brand, after prompts from an activist, including many gay bars in the 17th Street corridor. DC Brau is also seeing an uptick in sales now that bars are leaving the Pennsylvania brewery behind. [DCist]

The morning in closures

A couple of restaurant closures to note this morning. It’s always sad to see a longtime restaurant go, and Sorriso’s, an Italian restaurant, has left Cleveland Park after thirteen years of business. Silver lining: their sister restaurant in Woodley Park, Cafe Sorriso, will live on and carry some of the restaurant’s former dishes. Meanwhile, over in Shirlington, fast-casual Mediterranean restaurant Medi is done with that location. Lease negotiations didn’t work out, and the word is that a relocation is in the works.

Caffeine nation

Gasp. Starbucks’ holiday cups at the moment are green, not red. Cue the hysteria. [E]


Of note: The Source will no longer be open for lunch. They’ll still offer brunch on Saturdays, though. The bar and lounge opens up at 4 p.m. daily. Tough news for those on D.C. jury duty.
