Coming attractions

Popville reports that Ethiopian-themed Infusion Club and Restaurant has designs on the old Chief Ike’s space (1725 Columbia Road NW). The new venture is looking to carve out room for nearly 400 seats, including 350 inside and 30 more on a patio.

Supporting the home team

Ted Leonsis, the owner of the Washington Wizards and Washington Capitals, is apparently a big fan of Penn Quarter’s the Partisan.
