Changes continue on the 1800 block of M Street – the Sala Thai space (formerly Maoz Vegetarian) is becoming Oki Ramen.
Arguably the greatest walkway in the District. From Shaw.

Awesome. Pseudo pumpkin patch on P Street, NW just west of 9th.
I love the side porch on this one from Logan Circle:

From a press release:
“A public memorial service for the Corcoran Gallery of Art will be held on Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014 from 1:00-2:30 p.m. at 500 17th Street, NW Washington, D.C.
Following a procession from the Corcoran, the service will continue at Oak Hill Cemetery 3001 R Street, NW, Washington, D.C. at 3:30 p.m. at the site of William Wilson Corcoran’s mausoleum. (Please note: there is street parking only and carpooling is encouraged.)
The location and time of a reception where friends in the community are encouraged to share remembrances and farewell comments will be announced in the memorial service program that day. A guest book will be available at all sites.
Small, personal Corcoran-related tributes will be collected throughout the service for cremation after the memorial. Those bringing tributes are requested to provide a self-addressed stamped envelope. The ashes will be mailed at a later date. An In Memory of the Corcoran Gallery of Art Facebook page has been created for posting Corcoran memories.
Attire: Guests are encouraged to wear black or dress in period clothing of the Victorian era as a tribute to William Wilson Corcoran: black arm bands, men in mourning coats, women in dark veils with black umbrellas. (more…)
Back in July a reader wrote in about this aquamarine pop up on P Street in Truxton Circle. Thanks to a reader for sending word of the new paint job – they note it is now “A very bland and inoffensive off white.” Here’s how it looks now:
Which do you prefer – aquamarine or white?
If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

Thanks to @chinaterrell for tweeting us a link to the info from Ward One Democrats:
“The Ward One Democrats now offers monthly programs for voters. Please participate in our discussion this Wednesday, September 24, at 7:00 pm in the Reeves Center Community Room, 2000 14th Street NW (14th and U St. NW).
Our guest speaker, Camille Sabakhan is the General Counsel for the Department of General Services. She will discuss the process the District currently uses when deciding to redevelop public property — whether through sale or swap or other means. She will also discuss existing avenues for community involvement. The Department of General Services manages the District’s property holdings. Its mission is to promote the efficient and effective management of our city’s real estate investments and interests.
As a group, we will discuss whether the current process is sufficient and how the District should involve the community when redeveloping public property and space. Illustrative examples will include Grimke School, Bruce Monroe, and the Reeves Center.
Date: September 24
Time: 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
