On Monday I was overjoyed to share an update about Colony Club, “coffee shop, bar and ping pong club”, coming to the former Ma Ma’s Southern Cuisine space by Georgia and Kenyon St, NW. I was able to get in touch with the owners who say if all goes well they should be able to open by early February. I was curious about the ping pong aspect and they share:
“We’ll probably just have one indoor table to start (space is tight!). We’re going to have a professional caliber table (probably from Joola) and gear. We’ll have a system for reserving the table, certain times will be open play, and we’ll host tournaments and a league. In keeping with everything we’re doing, we welcome people to take it as seriously (or not) as they want.”
“This evening while walking my pup, I ran into a woman whose dog Bunker got away a couple of days ago. (My heart is breaking for her; in her place, I’d be devastated.) Thought I’d spread the word.
Bunker is a chihuahua mix, about 10 lbs, and apparently he is a shy and skittish fellow. He was last seen around the corner of 4th and G Streets SE. Marion Park and Garfield Park are nearby.”

I noticed this new graffiti on my neighbors’ building this morning, cattycorner from Cardozo High School. It’s also on a few other buildings around the block, but this one is disturbing because someone clearly got to the fire escape to do it, right outside the residents’ windows. I don’t know who did it, and I don’t mean to accuse Cardozo students, this is just located across the street from the school. Whoever the were, they’re jerks.”
This rental is located at 2130 N Street, Northwest. The listing says:
“Dupont, West-End location, South facing studio efficiency with approx. 445 SqFt. Nicely furnished and designed with bedroom area, desk area and dining area. Wood floors and plenty of closet space and shelving. Water and Gas for heating and cooking is included in rent amount.”
Has anyone else in DC had trouble receiving packages from UPS that require a signature? I work from home, and UPS deliverymen have outright lied on several occasions, claiming that they attempted a delivery but I was not available. Customer service is no help. They just read from the computer that they attempted delivery, and tell me the only possible way to get my package is to go to Landover, or pay $5 to have it delivered to a UPS store. It’s a total scam. They have no intention of ever attempting delivery. They never leave a slip; I honestly doubt they ever even leave Landover. I receive packages from FedEx just fine, and I receive non-signature-requiring packages from UPS. But if it needs a signature, you might as well not even bother imagining it will ever show up.”
“I lost my engagement thing this morning 12/19 in NW DC on my way to work. I took the 43 or L2 bus from Columbia road and Mintwood place to Farragut north and then took the red line from Farragut north to judiciary square and realized it was missing. It’s my fiancés family heirloom and it means so much to me and I’m desperate to find it! If anyone has any information please contact me and a reward will be offered. Please call me at 410-236-1294.”

See subject car in frame. When I arrived last night I had to squeeze in between 2 SUVs, now during the day they’re gone and it looks like I poorly parked (never mind that it’s midday and half the block is empty anyway). These people with entirely too much free time and concern over how other people park are really getting tiresome. Maybe a PSA to assume we all know what the hell we’re doing and unless you legitimately OBSERVED someone as they were parking you keep your hands off their car.”
