Room 11 will now be open for regular business tonight with no cover after 10 pm and open New Year's Day at 5 pm with classic hangover remedies. Still a few spots for the 7 pm dinner, just give us a call.
Cheers!

I've lived in Columbia Heights since before the METRO opened and this area still sucks! The only way Columbia Heights will be a place worth living is once we get rid of a certain group of people that keep bringing this area down! I moved here because I loved the idea of diversity but today I can tell you I'd have rather purchased in Arlington or Falls Church, where the diversity is a lot less taxing on you! I probably will live here till the end of my days but I don't think it will get much better than this!
