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:

“Shortly after 7pm [Wednesday], units received a call for a man down in the 1400 blk of Perry Place, NW. Upon arrival, an adult male was located suffering from apparent stab wounds. The male was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased. This case is being investigated by the Homicide Branch. Anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099.”

Ed. Note: Last week an arrest was made in another stabbing homicide nearby at 14th and Meridian Pl, NW.

They opened a few weeks ago. Anyone happen to take a taste? I’m wondering how the wings compare to Kochix.
