Make it a wrap

The college students who headed to ShopHouse with their own tortillas are getting their way. The chain is now offering wraps at its Georgetown location to satisfy the "movement" (which the chain has seen at other locations near colleges, too). Kids these days and their burritos. [Washingtonian]

Renovation report

Stoney’s has been closed for a few days, and is poised to reopen. The bar took a break to do some renovations to its kitchen, floors and walls. It’s basically the first temporary closure for the ten-year-old bar. The bar hopes to speed up its food service with the expanded kitchen. Faster grilled cheeses for all. [Borderstan]
