Thanks to a reader for sending the photo above of Old Navy coming soon signs across from H&M above Lunchbox and below Range in Friendship Heights in the Chevy Chase Pavilion [5335 Wisconsin Avenue, NW].

“NO NO NO NO NO NO! Keep @GAP Outlet out of Columbia Heights. We are not the suburbs. @PoPville”
“My husband spotted this little guy as we were awaiting the metro yesterday. The groundhog has made his burrow on the hill to the right of the sign where you can see him sitting at the entrance. He blends in a bit with the brown earth. Perhaps other readers have spotted him.”
Looks like a corpulent squirrel to me but I’m gonna take your word for it
“One day. Dozens of lessons, workshops, and classes taught by your neighbors — Washington D.C. residents. The Day of Learning is an opportunity for the city’s community to learn from and teach each other. From an introduction to hand-dancing, to getting the low-down on mixing the city’s signature cocktail (the Gin Rickey), to exploring D.C.’s neighborhoods, the Day of Learning celebrates D.C.’s vibrant culture, history, and people. The Day of Learning is a lively and community-driven event that unites the District through sharing who we are and what we know. Tickets and info at www.dayoflearning.org.”
“The DC Department of Public Works announced today that its crews will begin trash and recycling collections one hour earlier, starting at 6 am, Wednesday through Friday this week, due to a forecast of 90° and above temperatures.
Since collections were suspended Monday, September 1, when DPW observed Labor Day, trash and recycling will “slide” one day. Monday’s collections were made Tuesday, and so on. In twice-a-week neighborhoods, Monday/Thursday collections will be made Tuesday and Friday, while Tuesday/Friday collections will be made Wednesday and Saturday.
Residents may put their trash and recyclables out for pick-up starting at 6:30 pm the night before collections and their containers must be returned to their property by 8 pm on the collection day.
Throughout the summer, when the temperature is predicted to be 90˚ or higher or the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments announces unhealthy air quality (Code Orange or Code Red days), DPW collection crews will begin their work at 6 am to avoid health or environmental issues.”
What is the mysterious structure that they are currently building on the 625 T street, NW lot (facing the Howard Theatre) ? a few days ago, they fenced the lot and brought wood – some painted green and a few people are working on building something: since then they have been working on a mysterious structure.”

“@PoPville any ideas what they are building in front of Howard theater? I thought it was going to be a small park?”
