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.
