A few quick hits to start the day:
says that Onyx on First
is opening Monday (so my post earlier this week
on it looking close to opening wasn't too far off). I'm trying to confirm, but haven't heard back yet. UPDATE:
They tell me that yes, they're opening Monday.
* The Examiner reports
on allegations by DC auditors of an ethics violation by former Anacostia Waterfront Corporation chief Andrew Altman back in 2005, having to do with the AWC signing a contract with a real estate services company that listed Altman as a reference.
* The Nationals have announced that they have donated more than 10,000 tickets to August games at the ballpark to local community and civic groups, as part of MLB's "Commissioner's Initiative for Kids" program. Southwest's King Greenleaf Recreation Center was one of the recipients.
