Huzzah! Thanks to a friend of mine for sending the one above. lorie shaull took the great shots below and writes:

“The sledding news from Capitol Hill grounds was that there may have been more media covering the event than actual sledders. CNN, ABC7, Washington Post, Reuters, and many more were all in attendance. When I talked briefly to the Capitol Police they weren’t interfering and said they were there to make sure nobody got hurt; they did mention two reporters had fallen and been hurt. When I left, all sledders seemed happy and uninjured–no arrests were made.”

“Dear PoPville,

I’m going to be cleaning out my apartment and anticipate having quite a lot of stuff that I’d like to donate. My problem is I don’t have a car and it’s going to be quite a lot of stuff…does DC have any charities that offer pick-up services (free or otherwise)? My donations will include: clothing, shoes, accessories, coats, jackets, scarves, housewares, kitchen items, and books. All items are gently used and clean, the clothing will be both men’s and women’s and will be packed in boxes. I’ve tried looking online with no success: AMVETS doesn’t pick up in DC and I can’t seem to get any responses from the Red Cross.

If it helps, I live in the Kalorama area of DC. I would really like to donate these items to those that may need it so if you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it!”

Salvation Army does pick ups. Anyone know of others?

From MPD:

“The Metropolitan Police Department announced that arrests have been made in an Assault with Intent to Kill incident which occurred on Thursday, February 19, 2015, at approximately 1:10 pm, in the 1400 block of Duncan Street, Northeast, where an adult male robbery victim was located suffering from multiple stab wounds.

“Dear PoPville,

What is the best place in DC to buy fish/seafood on Fridays during Lent?

Would be great to learn of some spots around DC for a classic fish fry – the kind where sandwiches come wrapped in foil with cups of cole slaw.”

Lent goes until April 5, so the last Friday of Lent is April 3. We had some recs back in 2011 and 2009 but time for a refresh!
