From an email:

“I just wanted to let you know that we’ll be opening up between Chipotle and the Barnes & Noble in a few months. We just finalized our lease this week and will be starting build-out as soon as we can. Build-out will probably take about 3 months. The shop will be called Wardman Wines, and in addition to wine, we will have a good selection of beer and spirits, as well as wine-appropriate snacks. In addition, we plan on having regular tasting events and a full schedule of wine classes. We’re very excited to be coming to the neighborhood.”

Not sure how to process this one but I played squash I’d be pretty psyched. Previously we learned:

“This fall EastBanc will break ground on Squash on Fire — a $12 million, state-of-the-art, 20,000-square-foot indoor squash facility as an integral piece of the $200 million West End Library and Fire Station mixed-use residential project. When completed, Squash on Fire will include eight courts and a full-service restaurant situated atop of the newly renovated fire station.”

From Smithsonian’s National Zoo:

“Our panda cub has been visible on the panda cams several times since yesterday. Keepers left some sugarcane for Mei Xiang in her den yesterday afternoon, and around 1 p.m. she decided to eat some! That is the first time she has eaten since giving birth. She put her cub down for a few minutes while eating, giving panda cam viewers an excellent view of him. He is starting to get black markings around his eyes, ears and back. He also picked up his head and grunted (which is a happy noise) while Mei ate. Mei put him down again early this morning for a few seconds while she sat up. The cub is nursing well and the panda team is very happy with his progress.”

A reader reports at 7:30pm:

“Some kid, probably 17 – 20 years old just got shot on the 1200 block of Crittenden Street NW. I just happened to be walking south down Georgia Ave from the bus stop when the police swarmed the block. I counted 7 cars, 2 bike cops, 1 police motorcycle, 2 white shirts, and fire/ems both on the scene. The police told the crowd all they heard was a guy got shot, but is going to live. They just put the kid on the stretcher and wheeled him into the ambulance. Looks like he got shot in the front of his neck. He was conscious and looking around. This has to stop.”
