Not as cool as vol. 1 but still a pretty rare one. Think it’s new or old? I’m hoping by the historic house marker that it could be another old one.
I hope it’s the one on the left…
Kalorama awesomeness (not far from Adams Morgan.)

From an email:
“Bordered by the federal capital but separated from Virginia and the Confederacy only by the Potomac River, the citizens of Prince George’s County found themselves on the front lines of the Civil War. As Maryland’s largest slave-owning county, some joined the Confederacy while many remained loyal to the Union.
Learn more about this divided history as authors Nathania A. Branch Miles, Monday A. Miles and Ryan J. Quick discuss their new book Prince George’s County And the Civil War Life on the Border; on Wednesday, March 19 at 6:30 p.m. in the Washingtoniana, Room 307, Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library, 901 G Street NW.”

We got a little retail shuffle going on in the strip by Eastern Market. Groovy is moving next door into the first floor of the former Monkeys’ Uncle space and a new chocolate shop – J. Chocolatier (formerly located in Georgetown) will be taking over the second floor (just on weekends to start.) J. Chocolatier has been popping up out front of 321 7th St, SE the last few weekends. Their website says:
“J. Chocolatier was founded by Jane Morris in early 2007. Jane always loved baking, but began experimenting with chocolate after being told by her allergist that she was allergic to it. Determined to continue enjoying this perfect food, she began eating smaller quantities of the finest chocolate she could find — making every bite count.
She soon began handcrafting truffles and taking them to friends, family and coworkers. At their urging, she founded J. Chocolatier and sold her chocolates to a few exclusive shops and wine bars in the DC area. In 2009 Jane opened the J. Chocolatier retail boutique in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, DC. Although the retail store was a big hit, the historic building and the long, hot DC Summers didn’t mix. So in March 2013 J. Chocolatier moved back online. Currently, J. Chocolatier treats are also available at CocoVa in Adams Morgan, and Veritas Wine Bar in DuPont Circle.”
And now on Capitol Hill:
No word yet on who will take over the Groovy space.

I’m loving how it’s looking. This is the Twelve12 project and future home of Harris Teeter and Vida Fitness in Navy Yard.

“The Metropolitan Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying and locating a suspect in connection to a first degree sexual assault while armed/kidnapping, which occurred on Saturday, March 1, 2014, at approximately 11:00 am, in the 700 block of Barnes Street, Northeast. The suspect accosted the victim and walked her across a footbridge. The description of the suspect in the sexual assault is similar to two incidents that occurred on Friday, March 7, 2014, and are possibly related.
On Friday, March 7, 2014, at approximately 7:05 am to 7:10 am, a complainant exited the Minnesota Avenue Metro Station tunnel onto the footbridge located in the 4000 block of Minnesota Avenue, NE. She walked past the suspect, who approached her from behind. The suspect told her to follow him and said something to the effect that he would shoot her if she did not follow. The complainant began to follow the suspect. At some point, the complainant stopped following the suspect and she fled in the opposite direction.
At approximately 7:30 am, another complainant was walking near the foot bridge when she was approached by the suspect. The suspect told her to “come here”. The complainant didn’t respond, and the suspect said it again. The complainant saw an unknown male walking, and she pretended she knew him and walked towards him. The suspect briefly gave chase but the complainant escaped.
The suspect is described as a black male in his 20’s, approximately 5’7”, slim build, short black hair and a goatee. He was last seen wearing a black skull cap, tan jacket over a gray hooded sweatshirt with a single front pocket, white-washed blue jeans, and black and white Nike Jordan 3 shoes. He may go by the name “Moses.”
Anyone who has information regarding this case should call police at 202-727-9099.”
