Murky Capitol Hill: Evicted?

 Erik Wimple at the City Paper’s City Desk blog is reported this afternoon that Murky Coffee on Capitol Hill may be shutting down for good. Apparently, a note has been posted to the popular coffee house stating that their month-to-month lease is up and the landlord has given them notice to vacate. The shop closed its doors recently – ostensibly temporarily – due to a substantial overdue tax bill, but now it looks like they may not be opening back up. It will certainly be a big loss to DC coffee swillers if true.

    Dude! I can’t even begin to tell you how upsetting this is to me. WifeRat, BabyRat, and I have spent many weekend mornings at Murky. I had always been kind of ‘meh’ about coffee before I went to Murky, but after tasting the divine caffeinated goodness of Murky I became a bit of coffee snob. Thankfully, Sidamo and SOVA are there to slake my coffee jones, but if the Murky’s Eastern Market location goes the way of the Dodo they will be missed.

    Liz Lemon, where are you?
