The naming of the restaurant is an attempt to relate the hotel more to its neighborhood, since the restaurant has windows with views of the Southwest Waterfront and Tidal Basin.A preview of the menu reveals blue crab soup, chicken and dumplings, braised rabbit leg with grits and hush puppies with honey butter. Desserts will highlight "small bites" of American classics and seasonal pies: carrot cake, strawberry shortcake, peach cobbler and grasshopper pie. Dinner entrees average $22; desserts are $5 each. The restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The graduate school, whose primary location on Maryland Ave. Southwest is a few blocks from Southeastern near the National Mall, provides continuing education for some 150,000 students a year, most of them government employees. Officials at both schools hope to create a school with the stable finances and large enrollment of the graduate school but one that offers a wider range of degree opportunities focused on public service and federal job training. That could mean a new vision for Southeastern, said Jerry Ice, the president and CEO of the GS Graduate School. "The federal government has approximately 1.8 million workers, and almost another 2 million that are the contractors that do federal work," he said. His students are interested in continuing their studies to earn degrees, he said. "Both schools are excited about the possibilities," said J. R. Clark, chairman of Southeastern's board of trustees, and are considering everything from leadership to location to name changes to mission.

Instead of crossing the 9th Street bridge into the SW Waterfront neighborhood, runners will take the I-395 South ramp (SE-SW Freeway) beyond the 9th Street tunnel and then take the Maine Avenue exit. Next, they will make a U-turn onto eastbound Maiden Lane (never heard of this street), then go southbound on 12th Street, which merges with Maine Avenue. Once the runners pass 9th Street, the marathon route returns to its original alignment along Maine Avenue. Representatives from the Greater Washington Sports Alliance will be at tonight's ANC 6D meeting to go over the changes with the commissioners.
