La Colombe’s Blagden Alley Spot, technically 924 N Street, NW

Exciting tweet from @nevinmartell:

“Head’s up coffee lovers! @LaColombeCoffee will open a new cafe w/ a cupping room at 6&I NW early next year.”

Also happy to see @LaColombeCoffee retweeted it.

La Colombe opened their first DC location in Blagden Alley back in February next to Rogue 24.

View from Crane & Turtle across the scrappy/resilient Upshur Street toward Petworth Citizen

Thanks to all who sent emails about yesterday’s New York Times piece Washington Has More on Its Plate – Restaurants in D.C. Are Moving Into Residential Neighborhoods. Never mind that they call Upshur Street a “scrubby little block” – personally I’d say scrappy is a better adjective – but props to some love for Crane & Turtle, Petworth Citizen, Compass Rose, Red Hen, and others.

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.

From MPD:

“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Sexual Assault Unit have announced a suspect has been arrested in connection with an Assault with the Intent to Commit First Degree Sexual Abuse and a Sexual Abuse Allegation.

On Sunday, October 19, 2014 at approximately 3:30 am, an adult female was in the area of the 2400 block of I Street NW when a male suspect approached her, grabbed her and attempted to pull her into nearby bushes while threatening her. The victim was able to flee. A short time later, the suspect attempted to sexually assault a second adult female in the area.

The suspect 46-year-old Mustapha Kone of no fixed address was arrested on the scene and charged with Assault with the Intent to Commit First Degree Sexual Abuse, Felony Threats, Kidnapping and Simple Assault.”
