ACKC closing

ACKC on 14th Street is closing. This is v sad news -- they had incredibly good (and creative) hot chocolate drinks, and provided a great setting to while away a winter afternoon.

  1. Hmmmm . . . . I wonder what they'll have at the "post closing sale January 1."

    1. This is very sad news. I was looking forward to my first hot chocolate of winter there. Did anyone go to the sale yesterday? I was out of town or I certainly would have.

      1. Their Alexandria (Old Town and Del Ray) locations will continue on, however. I went to the Del Ray location recently, and while it was nothing much to look at, the hot chocolate and truffles were great.

        1. Something very strange is happening in DC - a lot of closing this year and /or companies cancelling plans to open in DC. Yet in suburbs outside of DC - this is not the trend. I think the DC landlords are ruining what was starting to look like an interesting shopping/dining/cafe scene within DC proper. Very sad.
