ADAMS MORGAN—The Line DC won’t open in time to participate in this year’s Capital Pride festivities — a rep just told Eater a “late summer” opening is likely — but it’s still lending some support. Local artist Robin Bell splashed a rainbow-colored video installation across the building June 8 to celebrate the annual LGBTQ event, and plans to display it again on Friday, June 9, and Saturday, June 10, from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. Bell has also done projects at The Kennedy Center, Hollywood Bowl, and Central Park Summer Stage.
14th STREET—Compass Rose founder Rose Previte is the new host of WETA’s amateur dining critic-led series Check, Please! The network says Previte and her khachapuri-making restaurant, nominated for a casual dining award at this year’s RAMMYs, are “staples of the Washington D.C. food scene.” The new show starts shooting next week and is scheduled to air this fall.
BLOOMINGDALE—CRISP Kitchen + Bar’s “$5 Everything Behind the Bar Happy Hour” — available daily from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. — has been supersized for the summer. The deals are now available on Fridays beginning at 11 a.m.; the full menu is also available.
