Vegging Out With DJ Dredd
DJ Dredd is one of our favorite local DJs, providing the hip-hop and old-school beats at Uncle Q's Living Room; Lovesexy, the monthly Prince dance party at Modern; and a long-running Friday residency at the Aroma lounge. Soon, he's going to add a line to his resume: restaurateur.
Vegetate, set to open in early or mid-May at 1414 9th St. NW, near the new Washington Convention Center, will be a "nice sit-down vegetarian restaurant" with DJs most nights of the week, says Dredd, aka Dominic Redd.
"I've been vegetarian for over 10 years," he explains. "My wife is vegetarian too, and when we go out, we have a hard time ... There's just not a lot of vegetarian options outside of ethnic food. And when you go to most restaurants, there's like a mixed veggie platter or pasta primavera." In addition to the "New American Vegetarian" cuisine, expect hip-hop and house DJs -- including Redd -- to provide the entertainment.
But as he gets to work on the restaurant, other projects will fall by the wayside. This Sunday's edition of the popular Prince-centric Lovesexy will be the last for the foreseeable future. The theme is Prince vs. Madonna, so expect songs of the Purple One and the Material Girl back to back, but Redd "may drop a bit of Rick James or Michael Jackson into the mix, just to make it more of a party." -- Fritz
