Fort Reno concert series, Ghana Cafe...where'd you go?

The Ghana Cafe was a reason for a non-intern to visit Adams Morgan. Bottles of Tusker behind the bar, a reggae band singing Wayne Newton classics, a patio perfect for ring-side 1 a.m. stumbler-gawking.

Now it's vacant "due to circumstances beyond our control," the facade refurbished to a disturbingly Ethan Allen look. The owners claim they will re-establish elsewhere, and cater fufu for the masses in the interim. But it won't be the same.

And where's the 2009 summer schedule for Fort Reno? Where are the high school kids in black bringing a little f*ck the man to Friendship Heights?

Some surprises are good. And some are just sad.
