I had heard that the proposals for the firehouse are down to TWO. And both include a restaurant on the ground floor.
While I don't really know how accurate that is, I'm still excited by the prospect.
One of the proposals is for the entire place to be a restaurant, the other is to have an arts based business/studio/school on the second and third floor. Both sound GREAT to me.
Also, there's talk of a Tavern coming to the 1500 block of north capitol. That may be as early as next summer.
