The Georgetown Business Association held its monthly networking reception March 16 at Good Stuff Eatery near the intersection M and 33rd Streets. The popular hamburger joint was opened by local chef Spike Mendelsohn also three years ago.
The GBA heard a presentation about DC Water’s Green Infrastructure from Joanna Schmickel of Cox Graee + Spack Architects. She is a GBA board member.
The business group is celebrating 40 years as an advocate and promoter of the Georgetown business and professional community. The GBA plans a 40th-anniversary party in June and is scheduled to be at the Capella —let’s see what the reported sale of the property makes of this event.
As most of us know, Good Stuff Eatery offers “handmade burgers, hand-cut fries and handspun ice creamshakes,” it says, and is “committed to freshness, fellowship and friendliness.” It averages about 1,000 hamburgers per day at the M Street location. (We especially like the Prez Obama burger.)
The original Good Stuff Eatery is on Capitol Hill; the second in Crystal City in Arlington, Va. Other restaurants headed by Mendelsohn include We, the Pizza and Bearnaise, a steak frite place, which opened a week ago. Mendelsohn is well known for his appearances at cable TV’s “Top Chef.”
The next GBA networking reception will be April 20 at Chaia Tacos on Grace Street.
