Georgetown Streetcar Line, Farewell to Canal Boat, High-Roller Romney Campaign Event
A look at a few of the most notable stories this week on Georgetown Patch.
A Georgetown Stretcar line was included in a Request for Information for a private firm to run a propsed 22-mile streetcar system in the District. The route looks similar to the current Circulator bus path from Union Station along H Street to K Street and under the Whitehurst Freeway. But there are some in Georgetown how think we should make a bolder move with the route and run the streetcar right down M Street. For now, the changes are a long way from being a reality.
Perhaps the most buzzed about article this week, Drybar's new location coming to Georgetown this fall was the talk of Twitter and Facebook. The Los Angeles-based salon is opening at 1825 Wisconsin Ave. next to the Safeway. The salon offers expert blowouts (no hair cuts) for prices ($40) lower than most regular salons in Georgetown. If the chatter on Facebook was any indication, there will be a line waiting at the door the day Drybar opens.
Georgetowners and history lovers gathered to reminisce and pay their respects to The Georgetown canal boat. The boat is slated to be removed and dismantled later this summer because repairs proved too costly for the National Park Service. But a group of supporters are hoping to raise the funds for a new mule-drawn boat.
Bob and Suzy Pence hosted an evening reception and dinner for Mitt Romney in their Washington Harbour condo Wednesday evening. The price to attend the fundraiser, which featured the Republican presidential candidate, was a cool $50,000 a head.
