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.
Thanks to a reader for sending word that windows at Old City Cafe have been papered over. Old City Cafe opened up at 1773 Columbia Rd, NW back in 2007. You can see their menu here. Calls to the restaurant ring without being answered or going to voicemail. Are there any fans?
I did notice a window was smashed on the left hand side so perhaps it is related?
In addition to the first DC location in Penn Quarter Protein Bar currently has a location a couple blocks away at 19th and K Street, NW too. This location across from Farragut Square was formerly home to an Orioles team store back in the day.
“Between 7 and 7:30 p.m. tonight, nearly a dozen DCFD and MPD vehicles were at intersection of Georgia Avenue and Webster Street, closing off Georgia between Varnum and Allison Streets, as well as Webster between Iowa and Kansas Avenues. We heard what sounded like a police megaphone outside for a few minutes, so we poked our heads out and saw this.
According to one first responder that I spoke to, it was “just a small kitchen fire,” at 908 Webster Street, but it’s easy to see from some of these photos that there must have been enough smoke to soot up the side of the attached home. One bystander noted that none of the home’s windows had been busted and there was no smoke left in the air, so they must have responded quick.”
