Thanks to all who sent emails with this potentially great news from Rhode Island Ave NE Main Street saying if all goes well the owners of Boundary Road will build a:
“neighborhood bistro featuring shared plates with a Mediterranean lean, eight craft beer lines, small but eclectic wine list and thoughtful cocktails.”
Boundary Road owners Karlos and Erin tell me “we expect the purchase to be completed before the end of the year.” If it turns out anything like Boundary Road – this’ll be an incredible addition to this emerging sections of Rhode Island Ave, NE. Updates when the deal is sealed and construction progresses.
“This is kind of silly, but… who would have guessed that Washington, DC ranks #2 in the nation when it comes to number of residential toilets per capita? According to a new report from Redfin real estate brokerage, there are 98 loos for every 100 people in the DC metro area. DC was topped only by Boulder Colorado, which leads the nation with an estimated 102 toilets per resident.
DC ranks third, behind LA and Chicago, in terms of water consumption based on a day’s worth of flushes. 144.8 Olympic-sized swimming pools could be filled with the water used in a day’s worth of flushes in the DC area.
Redfin real estate brokerage arrived at this list by looking at the most recent household and population data from the American Community Survey, along with county recorder data about the number of toilets present in each residence.”

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.
