Republic of Ballston?! I like it! There is so much going on along the Orange line, from new construction, to the Ballston BID projects, to well, you name it, it is happening. Republic is a newer restaurant, and we wish to showcase it. EcoCaters is a relatively new Eco-friendly and socially responsible catering company, and they are going to talk about green entrepreneurship and what it is like working out of Ballston!

Republic Kitchen and Bar

 

This month, our speaker, John Cosgrove, co-owner of EcoCaters will join us to chat about what he has done to grow his amazing environmentally focused catering business, right out of Ballston! He has some wonderful insights into community, entrepreneurship and environmentalism. John is the bee's knees, and so is the rest of his rockin' team!

About the venue:

Republic's vision looks towards fresh, local foods that provide a little bit of something for everyone! Their atmosphere is hit and inviting, and super-accessible.

partnerships with organic farmers, but we also ensure our ingredients are of the highest quality. It's about finding the very best, in a way that is good for all of us.

It's good for our bodies, our communities, and our earth."

About the venue:

"Think Andy Warhol meets General Motors. That's CarPool in a nutshell...The end result is a pop art testament to the American obsession of automobile culture that would make Lee Iacocca jealous." That's how Billiards Digest described CarPool when awarding it the accolade of Best New Room in 1996.

CarPool is in the Ballston area of Arlington County, convenient to Washington DC, I-66, I-395 and I-495 (the Capital Beltway).

We have 9 pool tables, two skee ball machines, four shuffleboards and seven dartboards, and two patios that are open when weather permits. We offer a wide range of draft and bottled beers, as well as a full liquor selection. There is no cover charge.

CarPool is a popular venue for sports fans.
