Hasta La Vista Bandolero

Attn: Georgetown Lovers of Guacamole, Tapas and Margaritas 

4E received some sad news this week. Bandolero, an M Street Tapas hot spot, will be closing after years of legal problems.

Bandolero is known for their all day happy hours and quasi-affordable food options. It was an institution for many a Georgetown student.

Bandolero’s closing comes after the closure of both the restaurant Tackle Box and the popular bar Rhino. WHY ARE BAD THINGS HAPPENING TO GOOD INSTITUTIONS?! We are losing the Georgetown food staples. What are they going to replace it with, another inappropriately overexpensive store? Why do we need that? Food > Clothes.

As of now, the actual date of closure is unknown. Knowing M Street management, Bandolero will probably gone soon. Go get your fill while you still can.

Let’s raise a glass to the place we love. Taco Tuesdays will never be the same.

As a Guac enthusiast I just have to say, thank God we still have El Centro. (Knocks on wood.)

Thanks to the Washington City Paper for letting us know about this tragic event.

RIP Jack Sr.

As any Georgetown student, D.C. citizen and dog-lover already knows, our dear Jack Sr. passed on this past Tuesday. The pup was 12 years old, and had been in his second year of retirement. Anyone who lived in New South during the school year of 2012-2013 will remember, Jack Sr. was the lovable pet of the freshman dorm. We here at 4E already miss him.  And, as it turns out, everyone else is having the same emotions as us (obviously).

Here is the Georgetown’s community response to this tragic event:

Of course all the Georgetown-based media immediately spread the news.

Most people have just reacted with pure sadness and shock. Personally, I didn’t even see this coming. The shock is what affected me the most.
