With so many of the city's neighborhoods getting developed, it can be easy to forget what once was, especially because so many of those developments serve you delicious craft beers. Paying homage to pre-Target Columbia Heights: Acre 121.
A reference to the 121-acre neighborhood that went nameless before becoming Columbia Heights,121 has turned the recently vacant Commonwealth space into a low-country BBQ joint, keeping things rustic with copper light fixtures illuminating a small stage, vintage prints of of the neighborhood, and bronzed mirrors, meaning Boehner must've accidentally pressed up against them while fixing a contact or something. Mouth-watering 'cue runs from dry-rubbed pulled pork sliders with a bleu cheese coleslaw, to the "Lowcountry" beer-battered grouper served with sweet potato fries, to the sliced steak/ fried oyster/ remoulade-laden "Carpetbag Po' Boy", who probably just got accidentally rolled up in there while he was sleeping on the floor. To wash it all down, they've craft pours including the one's-great-two's-enough raspberry/ wheat Abita Purple Haze, Belgian-style Goose Island Matilda, and smooth Blue Point Toasted Lager, which's made from six different malts including Crystal, Munich, and English Pale, or, a dismissive Boehner's only comment when asked about his policy stance on British exports.
And because that stage isn't going to rock itself silly, Wed-Sat will get nutty with folk and bluegrass, while Monday nights will play host to area singer-songwriters like local legend...uhhhh...y'know...barkeep, another Goose Island Matilda, stat!
