Call Before You Sneak Over for Some Popeyes

We know you’re out there. You shop at Whole Foods and Yes! Organic Market by day. Then, in the evening shadows you sneak over to the Popeyes in Logan Circle for some Louisiana-style fried chicken, red rice and beans, and biscuits. At least that’s what we hear is on the menu. Not that we’d know, you understand.

So, before you make you a trip to Popeye’s at 1315 14th Street NW, call to make sure they’re open. A sign went up in the window Thursday that the franchise had its Certificate of Registration suspended by the DC Office of Tax and Revenue — not for health code violations. “No retail sales can be transacted” reads the sign.

Then tell yourself: It’s okay. I can eat Popeyes chicken and buy my produce at farmers markets.
