I was the victim of a recent robbery (one of a number you’ve blogged about). As if dealing with authorities and insurance in the aftermath wasn’t enough, we keep getting recent visits from a woman who has been coming by a few times a day, unannounced. Not knowing who she was and not expecting anyone (especially at the hour she was here) we did not answer. After incessantly ringing the doorbell on her 4th or 5th visit in the last 24 hours, I finally answered it. She asked to speak with one of the people I live with, and then the other. She acted like they were already familiar, when in fact I knew she did not know them.

The alleged burglar enters around minute 1:49 on this video. A reader sends from Stronghold and says it took place October 2nd at 1:30pm and stolen was “Jewelry, passports, GoPro. And stole the camera that was taping him!!”
“Another new bar/restaurant for Rhode Island Ave. They don’t have food yet but they’re open for beer and cocktails. They have a few house brewed drafts that were pretty good. They’re also doing a no tipping policy and choosing to pay a fair wage to wait staff.”
Thanks to a reader for sending word that the GDoN “awesome ‘pool-ready’ massive backyard” edition house at 1349 Otis Street, NE sold for a cool million bucks in Brookland on October 2nd. Please enjoy the comments to that post… And congratulations Brookland homeowners – you can now easily refinance/get a home equity loan and add that new kitchen you’ve been pining for!
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.
