Pairing Food Trucks With Brick-and-Mortars: Here’s an interesting idea: A local brick-and-mortar establishment will host a different food truck every Thursday starting March 31 for happy hour, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The business is Chinatown Coffee Co., which will partner with a handful of the city’s favorite food trucks, kicking things off with Takorean in two weeks. The trucks, naturally, will be positioned outside, while the coffeehouse will have $3 beer specials and seating inside. [WeLoveDC]

Chew on This Concept: Over on 11th Street NW downtown, Nancy Koide and Errol Lawrence of Oya “seem to be attempting to create an anachronistic fusion of a French cabaret and an opera house at the height of the Venetian Renaissance” at their new “high concept” establishment Sax.
