Blind Dog Coffee closing, replaced by Union Kitchen Presents pop-up incubator: first is Timber Pizza Co.

Coffee fans in southern Columbia Heights will need a new option: the Post reports that Blind Dog Cafe at 944 Florida Ave NW is closing, to be replaced by Union Kitchen Presents, a pop-up restaurant incubator -- kind of like EatsPlace on Georgia Avenue, where different chefs and restauranteurs will test out their ideas.

The first pop-up will be for Timber Pizza Co., the pizza restaurant and former food truck opening at 809 Upshur Street NW in Petworth which we've written about before. It sounds like a good opportunity to give them a shot before they open their brick and mortar location sometime in 2016. Timber has also had other events in our area, like pop-ups at Colony Club on Georgia.

Union Kitchen has a few locations around the city -- this is the first outside of Northeast.

Darnell's, the bar that is in the same building as Blind Dog, will presumably stay open.

UPDATE: The pop-up will still sell Blind Dog's coffee and baked goods.
