The Guards to close tonight. Is it permanent?
The restaurant has stood defiantly along M Street NW in Georgetown for nearly half a century, watching the neighborhood transition from head shops to haute designer shoe stores. But starting tonight after the dinner service, The Guards will close. Perhaps temporarily, perhaps permanently. (via The Washington Post)
Along with the now-shuttered Garrett’s, the Guards was home to many memories in my early twenties (as well as late-night dancing after our rehearsal dinner).
