Gina's Divorce

My favorite bartender in DC, Gina Chersevani, is leaving PS7s. This is really sad; she's what made that bar worthwhile. The other bartenders there are perfectly fine, don't get me wrong, but it was Gina's boundless sense of creativity that made the lounge at PS7s special. I look forward to hearing what her next plans are, and I'm sure I'll be talking about them and enjoying her next project.

Here's the news from the Washingtonian:
According to Chersevani, a disagreement with Smith led to the split. The duo—who’ve been a prominent team both in the restaurant and out on the event circuit—were developing a new concept together this year, but it's unclear whether or not that will go forward as planned. 
“How do you leave a place after three years and separate yourself?” says Chersevani. “It’s like a divorce.”
Update: Prince of Petworth passes on a rumor that Gina might be opening a cocktail deli at 6th and Pennsylvania SE.
