Save the mural in Adams Morgan

There is an effort to try to save a mural painted over the doorway of the Potter’s House in Columbia Road in Adams Morgan. The bright and colorful mural has become a fixture on Columbia Road, and now serves as an important symbol of the neighborhood's creative energy. Erasing it will be like a erasing a little bit of what makes Adams Morgan special. This mural is worth saving.

The mural entitled “The Light of the World” was painted by local artist Karla-“Karlisima” Rodas-Israel. Here's a short interview with her in her studio.

The new owners of the building, the Eighth Day Community Church, plan to paint over the work, according to the artist. The artist's Website

Taan Noodles closes in Adams Morgan

I had dinner here and liked it. The Ramen soup was excellent, with a lot of texture, depth and flavor. The restaurant was brick and wood and on a cold winter night, when I last had a meal there, the place was perfect.
