What in the name of Larry Craig is going on here? Remington’s, a long-time establishment on Capitol Hill at 639 Pennsylvania Ave. SE and iconic gay bar, is closing up shop, Prince of Petworth reports .  

Remington’s will pour its last shot on Monday during happy hour, an abrupt ending for a place that’s been around for three decades.  

The one-time country-western themed dive joins a long list of old favorites on the Hill that are going the way of the dodo , such as the Li’l Pub and Pour House, and a list of endangered spots by the bankruptcy proceedings swirling around Barracks Row Entertainment, whose holdings include the Hawk n’ Dove, Boxcar Tavern and Chesapeake Room, among others.  

Make no mistake: This is the global warming of Capitol Hill drinking spots: Rapid change followed by unknown future.
