“Magic Realist Paintings by Kathryn Freeman are up at the Jane Haslem Gallery 2025 Hillyer Place, Dupont Circle until March 31st. The show includes a series of moon lit interiors, one of which is inspired by the childrens’ poem “Goodnight Moon”. Also, “Moon River”, inspired by the song, and “Rabbit Summer”, inspired by garden consuming rabbits. There is also a room filled with paintings called “Stories from the Woods” which will make you look forward to hiking in Rock Creek Park when spring finally comes. If you want to bring the kids- have them count the animals in the paintings. hint- the count to date is 41!”
From the MPD-1D Listserv, MPD responds to a query about a dog shot at 8th and C NE:
“At approximately 2:15 today, First District officers on patrol discharged their weapons at 2 pitbulls running at large in the area. The dogs had reportedly attacked several citizens in the area beforehand.
One dog succumbed to his injuries on the scene and the second was seized by Animal Control Officers. The owner of the dogs has been identified and will be cited accordingly.
There were no serious injuries sustained to the victims of this animal attack.”
“On March 13, 2014, at around 2:00 PM, First District officers on routine patrol in the 800 block of C Street, Northeast, interrupted (2) loose pit bulls attacking a citizen’s dogs by fatally shooting one of the pit bulls, and injuring the other. The animals were recovered by the D.C. Animal Control Agency.
The on scene investigation revealed that prior to the attack that the officers witnessed, the pit bulls had bitten a citizen, and attacked another dog at 10th & Maryland Avenue, Northeast. The citizen was treated on the scene for her injuires by DCFD, and released. There were no injuries to the officers.
This case is currently being investigated by First District personnel and the D.C. Animal Control Agency.”
Last we learned the “high-energy steakhouse” was shooting for a Spring opening:
“In the heart of the city’s Dupont Circle neighborhood, STK’s vibe-driven scene will be based around a bustling bar, while banquettes and bistro seating will offer diners a menu with an extensive selection of delicious steakhouse classics with a twist. STK also breaks the mold of a conventional steakhouse with its sexy, social atmosphere and vibrant bar scene featuring DJs spinning.”
“The construction of 2009 Columbia Road NW was a joint effort between real estate developer Arthur Coswill and leading architect William Conley. Completed in 1899, this free standing mansion has (arguably) the most ornate façade in all of Kalorama. 2009 Columbia Road NW has a rich history of past residents, including the first secretary of the Embassy of Great Britain, George Young; Irwin Hall, an English-French school for girls operated by Sarah Irwin Mattingly; James George McKay, a physician and lieutenant colonel; Ghulam Nabi – diplomatic courier for the Pakistani embassy; Chris Middendorf, proprietor of the Middendorf-Lane Gallery and the former residence of the Legation of the Kingdom of Greece.
2009 Columbia Road NW is now the location of seven brand new, luxurious condominiums that have been completely renovated from the walls in with the highest quality finishes and craftsmanship. In short, the units are unbeatable for style, design, luxury and, naturally, location.”

Do you know anything about how the marathon street closures will work? For example, if I drive on Maryland NE going east, can I drive through 13th St NE?”

Does DC have any laws for rental properties regarding how much windows have to open and air flow? I’ve recently moved into a studio that I love but I only have one opening window and it only opens a sliver. I barely get any moving air or temperature change.”
Interesting question – anyone know if there are any regulations for windows opening?
“Hello Everyone. We are in the process of renting a rowhouse on the 1100-1200 block on Euclid St. NW. We are in search of 2 parking spots near the house since it doesnt have any. Would anyone know of somebody that has availability or suggestions nearby?”
“My friend Jim is moving to China to teach English. This is the only job he’s found after two years of looking. He needs to find a home for Barron and Pepper, his two 7-year old cats before he leaves. Please help. Barron and Pepper are brother and sister. They have been indoor cats their entire lives. Both have been raised their entire lives to know flat out, no scratching or biting period, no excuses, though sometimes Personality wise, Barron is a big, fluffy frat boy type, loves to get his belly rubbed, very affectionate, likes attention and nice people.
Pepper is a little bit of a spicy bitch and she will talk back or complain when you tell her to go to her room, and she is not the biggest fan or her brother, but they have never been apart so I am not sure how they would react to being separated. She is petite, very, very cute, and loves to sit at your feet and rest her head on your leg while you pet her. She also has a little “prayer” thing she does, not sure what it means, but its cute.”
“Does anyone have recommendations for intensive and affordable Spanish language classes in the DC area? I have beginner Spanish speaking skills, but would like to learn a lot more, but over only a couple months.
I also need something that is not self-run like Rosetta Stone.”
