Finally some movement at the former New Orleans Po Boy space that closed back in December of last year. I hear it’s going to be something called Yaffa or Yaffa’s – I’m guessing Middle Eastern/Falafel? Anyone else hear this? Sounds like it won’t be a major renovation so we’ll update as soon as they open:

“Dear PoPville,

Hannah Graham is 18 years old and attends UVA, she was last seen 10 days ago and police have identified a person of interest. They are looking for him as he is currently on the run. His name is Jesse Matthew aka LJ, he is from Charlottesville, VA and he is driving a light blue Nissan Sentra tags VAC4575. He has connections in DC/MD/VA. I’ve attached the wanted poster as well as a picture of Hannah Graham. Please please please get this out, exposure is key at this point. I’m not affiliated with the family in any way but want to get the word out. Please help the entire DMV community in locating this child so we can help the police find him and the parents find Hannah.”

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.
