Johnny V's Closer to Opening; Celebrating the Mirliton

UPTOWN? According to live coverage of today's City Council meeting by the Uptown Messenger, Johnny V's restaurant, attached to uptown bar Monkey Hill, may be close to opening. The restaurant has been in the works for over 2 years, with the opening delayed because of unapproved construction. The restaurant's licenses are now just waiting on the signing of a good neighbor agreement. [UM]

BYWATER? There's always a festival somewhere. This weekend it's a celebration of a "quirky vegetable" at the Mirliton Festival at Markey Park in the Bywater. The 22nd annual fess runs from 11 to 7 Saturday. [TP]
