Eat at The Heights Tuesday to help the Columbia Heights Community Marketplace

If you feel like getting a good meal and helping out the upcoming Columbia Heights Community Marketplace, head to The Heights on Tuesday for dinner. 10% of all proceeds that night go to the market, covering overhead costs and also "empowering local youth who will work at the Marketplace to gain entrepreneurial skills and learn where fresh food comes from and how it is produced." Sounds good.

The Community Marketplace, which includes a farmers market plus crafts and services, opens June 5 and runs every Saturday from 9 am to 2 pm at the CH Civic Plaza (14th/Park/Kenyon).

Do you know anything about the future of the building located in 11th and Monroe? I saw a demolition note posted in the building. I am wondering if a developer is taking charge of that property.

I don't, but I'll take a look.

They'd better not start with the music until much later in the day! I live right by that area and don't need to hear music and noise at 9 am every Saturday ...
