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.
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.
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.
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.
