Pour one big ol’ beer out
Hunan Number One, a Chinese and sushi restaurant in Clarendon known for daily deals on food and drinks, announced on social media yesterday that it will close Monday, August 12. Fittingly, the post included a picture of a liter mug of beer, which is also in the restaurant’s logo. According to its Facebook post, the restaurant has been open since 1987.
We are sad to announce, Hunan Number One is closing its doors on Monday, Aug 12. It has truly been our honor and privilege to serve you, and we extend our heartfelt gratitude and thanks to all our loyal and faithful customers. Come join us now through Sunday for a final farewell. pic.twitter.com/hCb4R5y6ey— Hunan One Arlington (@hunannumberone) August 7, 2019

The Uncaged Chef pop-up that serves Sunday brunch out of Rosebuds BBQ in Capitol Heights, Maryland, just branched out.
