Women + wine = win: Women are making strides in winemaking but they remain relative rarities in the industry. Two Santa Clara University professors wrote in their 2020 book, Women Winemakers, that women lead winemaking operations at just 10 percent of California’s more than 4,000 wineries, and own just 4 percent of them.
Even so, Little Red Fox (5035 Connecticut Avenue) noted this month that the majority of the wines it carries are woman-owned.
Women 🤝 Wine. Super proud that a majority of the wines we stock are woman-owned (including these 6 new wines) in our majority woman run & staffed store. 💪❤️🍷 pic.twitter.com/nnllsG0ATL

And Uptown Market (4465 Connecticut) has been featuring three woman-made wines in its March wine club box.
Add these lists to our to-do list: Muchas Gracias (5029 Connecticut) tops Eater DC’s list of places to grab a burrito.
And when we saw this list from Washingtonian of the “61 Neighborhood Restaurants That Make the DC Area a Better Place to Eat – and Live,” it became a dining-out bucket list.
Those 61 restaurants include Comet Ping Pong (5037 Connecticut). Before Covid-19, Comet was a popular neighborhood gathering place. “We hope those days return soon,” Washingtonian says, “but in the meantime, the spot has a well-run carryout operation.”

Streatery spruced up: “Last Saturday, VNMS Executive Director Gloria Garcia, Rosemary Bistro Café owner and Chef Fred Darricarrere, and a local volunteer painted the concrete Jersey barriers surrounding the Streatery at I’m Eddie Cano and Rosemary Bistro Café (5010 and 5014 Connecticut) neon white, making the barriers more visible, safe and attractive.”
And: “Master Gardener Kathy Sykes – with the help of a local volunteer, planted colorful spring flowers in the Streatery’s tree box and added flower boxes along the top of the newly painted wall. Even more flowers and decorative pots were added outside of the small businesses in Wakefield.”
