A popular H Street hangout that was ravaged by fire last month has been broken into, according to a posting on the tavern’s Web site.

A co-owner of Argonaut, Scott Magnuson, arrived at the bar last week to find an air-conditioner dislodged from a window. Inside, he found a gumball machine had been broken, a juke box opened and bottles broken on the floor.

Police were able to recover prints from the scene, the posting said.

Earlier, a cooler and some umbrellas had been taken from the bar.

The tavern’s owners have been working on repairs after a fire gutted the kitchen and damaged the interior with smoke June 20. They expect to announce a re-opening date this week, according to the site.

"This is why we can't have nice things."

An unpleasant reminder that the Argonaut is still in NE DC.

you can't have nice things because you burn them down.

I guess we can assume from above comments that we have already decided that this is due to the" Ni##ers" and have forgotten that their are quite a few other races in that area in this day and time.

I think you are the first person to mention race. Why is that? Everyone else mentioned geographical location, no one mentioned race.

Doesn't matter whether you MENTION race or not really...When crimes are committed in certain areas we automatically react....

The only thing that matters is they are criminals and need to be caught...but this is low on the police priority list, trust me....
