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.

“My boyfriend found this girl around 11:30pm at the corner of Oates and Holbrook in Trinidad. She was very friendly, with a collar but no tags. She was scanned at WHS but doesn’t have a microchip. Unfortunately, she started to not get along with my pup so she is currently at the shelter on NY Ave. [1201 New York Ave NE]“

Interesting update on the Old Soldiers Home (AFRH) from the Washington Business Journal:

“The Armed Forces Retirement Home could be ready to select a team this summer to remake a substantial portion of its 272-acre campus in Northwest D.C., nearly a decade since it raised the prospect of letting private developers build on an unused part of its campus near The Catholic University of America.”

From an email:

(Eastern Market Metro)]by nationally known organist Tom Trenney. Admission is free, though donations to directly support the organ music series are appreciated.

More information here.”

More good bistro news – the Washington Business Journal reports:

“Hakan Ilhan, who owns Alba Osteria at 425 Eye St. NW, has signed a lease for a 6,361-square-foot space at 450 K Street NW, the m.flats apartment building from Kettler. The restaurant will be called L’Hommage Bistro Francais and combine a full-service bistro with a bakery, cafe and grab-and-go sandwich option at lunch.”

Sounds very promising! Any fans of Alba Osteria?

The MVTCID says:

“Look for this new addition to Mount Vernon Triangle’s growing culinary choices in June 2015.”
