Big &pizza expansion news from the Washington Business Journal:

“Next up for the restaurant group: Dupont Circle, Capitol Hill, Chinatown and Rockville. Co-founder Steve Salis expects all of those to open by the end of 2014 or early 2015, he said.”

The Dupont Circle and Chinatown locations are reported to be 1215 Connecticut Ave. NW and 802 7th St. NW (around the corner from the coming Potbelly and Cava Grill) respectively.

Last week we reported that &pizza would be coming to the Oxxo Cleaners space on Barracks Row at 405 8th Street, SE.

From MPD:

“Tonight [Monday] at approximately 5:38 pm, citizens observed an adult male suspect making forced entry into a residence in the 1100 block of 8th St. NE and called 911. First District Officers quickly set up a perimeter and were assisted by K9 units. The suspect was later found inside and placed under arrest without incident.

Thanks to the outstanding work of First District Officers and the concerned neighbors, a burglary suspect was quickly apprehended and placed under arrest.”

A reader asks:

“do you know anything about coffee/bar replacing Ma Ma’s at 3118 Georgia?”

Back in March we learned that a new bar with ping pong tables would be taking over the space. A new permit posted out front says buildout for a new “coffee shop/bar”:

Sounds like in the morning they’ll be a coffee shop and transition to a bar at night. Keeping my fingers crossed on the ping pong tables…

Ed. Note: A new coffee and deli spot is also slated to come nearby to the former Tibet Shop at 3213 Georgia Avenue, NW.

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.

The ATV/Dirt Bike saga continues. A reader sends word last night at 10:45pm that there were 7-8 kids riding at 9th and H St, NE then headed towards K Street with one police car in pursuit. Looked like “one rider was caught at 9th and H” but the others got away. The reader reported that they were driving on both sides of the street crossing lanes of traffic. It’s interesting to note that he saw a police car in pursuit after yesterday’s discussion noting that MPD had previously been directed not to chase.

Holy canoli – finally a new tenant for the Ohio Restaurant. Ed. Note: Somebody must save those signs!! Just saw this sign for Oh Zone Lounge in the front door:

It’s not clear if these are the real menus or just a place holder but it’s on the website listed in the sign. Updates when they get closer to opening.

From just north of H Street, NE. Awesome. I’m just seeing the for rent sign in the photo now hahaha (I was focused up top.) Anyone who lives nearby happen to know how much it’s going for? I think it’s around 7th and I Street, NE on I.
