You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
“The Metropolitan Police Department’s Sexual Assault Unit is investigating two first degree sexual assault cases that may be related. The first case occurred on Tuesday, July 28, 2015 at approximately 10:45 pm in the Unit Block of Riggs Road Northeast. The second case occurred on Friday, August 28, 2015 at approximately 12:08 am in the 1500 block of Michigan Avenue Northeast.
The suspect’s description is similar in both cases. The suspect is described as a black male, in his 20s to 30s, with a medium to dark complexion, 6’ to 6’2” in height, with facial hair. In both cases, the suspect was armed with a knife and he fled the scene on a dark colored bicycle following the sexual assault. In one of the cases, the suspect robbed the victim of her property. Prior to the assaults, both complainants’ exited nearby Metro Stations (Fort Totten and Brookland/CUA). MPD is urging the public to use caution when walking alone in the area coming from the Metro Stations and using the nearby foot paths and bike trails.
Anyone who has information regarding these crimes should call police at 202-727-9099. Additionally, information may be submitted to the TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411.”
Update: An incredibly good source tells me that the bourbon place will be located on the second floor and on the first floor we can expect a Cava Grill and a Citibank.
Finally word of a replacement for the prime Bertucci’s location vacant since Sept. of last year. The liquor license placard for DVL says:
“Light fare to mix with rare bourbons. No hood for food service. DJ and bands on occasion depending on the event. No nude performances. No dancing provided. Seating for 30 and Total Occupancy Load of 250.”
Guerrilla Goodness is intentional, anonymous acts of kindness performed in playful, creative ways for strangers, friends, and family.
It is the power of kindness and joy coming alive for all involved, both the giver and recipient. It’s discovering something about yourself and the world that changes everything, it is about believing and standing in kindness.
Guerrilla goodness is dropping flowers on strangers’ doorsteps, chalking up sidewalks outside of schools with good wishes on the first day of school, leaving quarters in all the gumball machines in town, slipping starbucks gift cards into books at the library for the next reader to find.
I like to think it is where strangers and kindness meet to play!”

The Crime Museum opened on May 23, 2008. The museum’s conception began when Mr. John Morgan, successful entrepreneur and respected attorney, was amongst the tourist crowds on a trip to Alcatraz Island, the former federal prison in San Francisco, CA that’s now a national park. After his tour of the prison, he decided that a museum that discussed the history of crime, punishment, and crime scene investigation was needed. His goal was to make it interactive and to also honor law enforcement. He partnered with his friend John Walsh, host of America’s Most Wanted to bring his vision to reality.
Crime Museum Mission
The mission is to provide guests of all ages with memorable insight into our nation’s history of crime and its consequences, law enforcement, forensic science, and crime scene investigation through a captivating, interactive, entertaining, and educational experience.”
Good to see they’re keeping a sense of humor about it:
