Vendetta Bocce Bar and Italian Restaurant is opening tonight, accepting walk-ins, according to Eater DC.
The Vespa-cool establishment is opening at 1212 H St. NE, in the space formerly occupied by Red Palace, which started out way back as the Palace of Wonders Show Bar, a relocated-from-Baltimore freak show that was home to the burlesque and the weird.
Roll Call After Dark is about what Washington does when it's not at work.
The District of Columbia is a cultural capital where you can you get your kicks from movies projected on the National Mall, lectures on vermouth or Russian avant-garde art. There's always something to do.
