“Dear PoPville,

I’m a member of the Bruce Monroe Community Garden, located between Sherman and Georgia and Irving and Columbia on the eastern side of Columbia Heights. We had a fantastic bench in the garden, built by a longtime neighborhood resident, that was truly representative of the community (blurb below). The bench was recently stolen and we’re hoping you can help us recover it. Any information or sightings can be sent to brucemonroegarden@gmail.com, and we’d just be happy to have it returned intact.

Blurb by the bench’s creator:
Just as the old Bruce School gave up its ghost to be reborn as this park, so too did it give of itself to provide this seat for your weary legs. Using floorboards removed from the original Bruce School gymnasium and a discarded rusty old park bench found in an alley near the school, this new bench was given new life (and a new paint job by neighborhood kids). So as we cultivate the rebirth of our community, we always remember where we came from.

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.

Burger before the movie? A new liquor license placard has gone up for Tasty Burger – located around the corner from the new Atlantic Plumbing Cinema (opening Oct. 15th):

“New restaurant specializing in burgers, fries, and shakes. Total Occupancy Load of 99 and seating for 56. Entertainment Endorsement to offer occasional acoustical music and similar live entertainment. Summer Garden with seating for 29.”

You can see the original Boston based menus here.
