“I was in an Uber and the lovely guy mentioned this place I just HAD to go to see the foliage. Of course, I cannot remember what he said for the life of me. So, lets pose it here: where should we go to see the fall sights?”

Head’s up about a potentially dangerous runner in Dupont – Today (9/21) I was walking around 17 and S St. NW at 11 AM when I was assaulted by a jogger. A woman running quickly towards looked me in the face, said “head’s up”, then purposely body slammed me in the shoulder with a lot of force. I yelled loudly but she continued and was gone before we figured out what just happened. It was clearly intentional and she really hurt my shoulder. She was about 5’4″, Caucasian, athletic, mid-30s, with mid length brown hair. The whole experience was bizarre, but clearly an unprovoked assault on a stranger that she will probably repeat.”
This house is located at 411 Delafield Place, Northwest. The listing says:

Crown molding. Skylight for natural light. Slate walkway and porch. Nice deck and yard. Enclosed driveway in rear.”
Thanks to James Calder for sharing these great photos:
“The Washington Hilton had Florida Avenue blocked off all weekend so that one massive, mobile crane could install another massive, fixed one on the hotel grounds. (Photos taken on the roof deck of my apartment building in the 1800 block of T St NW.)”

When we saw a live plant out front in August, we knew Thai X-ing had to be getting close. Well the paper is now off the front windows and you can see the small bar is stocked and a ceremonial Buddha is set. Get ready.
Finally some movement at the former New Orleans Po Boy space that closed back in December of last year. I hear it’s going to be something called Yaffa or Yaffa’s – I’m guessing Middle Eastern/Falafel? Anyone else hear this? Sounds like it won’t be a major renovation so we’ll update as soon as they open:
