A reader sent this in today: "Just walked by Tynan last night and it looks very close to opening. The bar is set up, there is furniture. Also, Thaitanic II also looked pretty close to an opening when I walked by last Sunday."
Tynan's is on Irving and 14th, in the Highland Park building (next to Five Guys) while Thaitanic II is in the Alegro building at 3460 14th Street NW, between Newton and Meridian.
Sounds good! I'll see if I can find more.
UPDATE: A commenter says Thaitanic II is in fact open!
