Just when we thought all was lost, the Black Rooster Pub conquers “peace.”

Tom reported in late September on the Black Rooster Pub losing its leased space that it had held since 1970 because the landlord rented out their space to the adjacent Peace Corps headquarters. This move would have ousted a longstanding neighborhood stronghold, and we would have been stuck with even less retail space along the office-building-crowded L street corridor.

Well, your cries were heard, and the landlord has reversed its decision to close down the pub. The Black Rooster officially reopens for business today, so stop by on your way home for a pint and celebrate the revival.

Cathy was fortunate to spend a year in Paris – traveling to all surrounding countries and touring all that is worthy. Upon realizing that there is no place like home (she does hail from Kansas City – but did not click her heels to get back – thank you, Air France), she returned to America where she set out to explore every last inch of our massive country. From her base in the nation’s capital, she has worked in marketing and event planning for the past 4 years. Mail any and all DC related tips to Cathy (at) WeLoveDC (dot) com.
