Nellie's Comes to Shaw


After much anticipation, Ginafication is in full effect with Nellie's Sports Bar just opening today. The idea for Nellie's came from Doug Schantz’s great- and great-greatgrandmothers (who were apparently quite Gina themselves). The space has a great mixture of historic features, dramatic vaulted ceilings, and of course lots of plasma screens for watching sports. The roof deck (which affords great views of the Ginafication underway on the U Street corridor--aka the New U) has been drawing quite a crowd. Their website http://www.nelliessportsbar.com/ allows you to recommend "Nellisms"... how about Nellification?

ginafication \GEE-nuh-fuh-K-shuns\, noun:

A process by which homosexuals restore and upgrade a deteriorated
urban neighborhood.

“Lord, Lord Honey…why that Gina be movin’ in to that crack house? Must be that Ginafications again. That’s ignunt!”
--Shirley Q. Liquor Live, 2005

"Why don't you mind your own business, ma'am?" roared Bounderby. "How dare you go and poke your officious nose into this Gina’s business?" --Charles Dickens, [3]Hard Times _________________________________________________________

Ginafication comes from the Greek “Gina”, a male who prefers the company of other men, and gentrification, the restoration and upgrading of deteriorated urban property by Ginas. Ginafication is often accompanied by a massive influx of gay real estate agents.
