SAY WHAT?! DUPONT UNDERGROUND WELL IS RUNNING DRY

Dupont Underground has come quite a long way since their former Streetcar Named Desire tunnel days decades ago and the new problems it’s facing have us feeling all STELLAAAAAAA!!!!!!!

I mean, don’t get us wrong – this is far from the worst of the worst this little space has seen. After all, there was also that one time in the 90’s when something called the Dupont Down Under food court crashed and burned. SAY WHAT?! DUPONT UNDERGROUND WELL IS RUNNING DRY

PSST!!! HAS ANYONE SEEN MORRIS!?

So we’re kind of upset right about now — borderline in mourning, okay. Being the uber sophisticated restaurant/foodie-extraordinares that we are, we were very much looking forward to what was supposed to be this season’s hottest restaurant opening of Chef Spike Mendelsohn’s Morris inside of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. So we’re sure you can imagine our surprise when we coincidentally stumbled upon THIS:

THE DC RAMMY AWARDS ARE ON THE WAY…

So…we know you’ve heard of the Grammys. You’ve even heard of the Razzies, but are you hip enough to know about the Rammys?

No?

Okay…well, that’s alright…honestly you probably fall in line with right around 99.995% of the rest of the population.

So — if right about now you’re feeling kind of like you fail at DC pride, knowledge and overall life in general — it’s okay — you’re forgiven.

See what you have to understand is that it’s no secret that the rest of the country is kind of taking notice of our little gem of a district. We kind of had the arrival of the DC Michelin Guide and “… in case you missed it, Bon Appétit Magazine dubbed DC ‘The Restaurant City of the Year,'”. Yeah — we’re freaking awesome. THE DC RAMMY AWARDS ARE ON THE WAY…

NOT YOUR AVERAGE BIERGARTEN — WELL, OKAY…MAYBE IT IS..BUT NOT REALLY!

Okay — we know what you’re thinking — ANOTHER biergarten!? There’s only maybe perhaps literally just about 1,260,372 per square block in DC and it’s kind of sort of getting yawn.

Now, don’t get us wrong–we love a good biergarten and have definitely enjoyed our fair share of Belgian and German delights — but yes, we can absolutely see how this can be less-than-riveting news to our fellow Washingtonians. However, this one is kinda sort of doing it a bit different and we’re loving the vibes. NOT YOUR AVERAGE BIERGARTEN — WELL, OKAY…MAYBE IT IS..BUT NOT REALLY!
