“Road Rage Attack on Cathedral Ave & New Mexico Ave NW – January 26th @ 8:35am

On my way to work, I was victim of road rage. Some psychotic asshole started honking at me frantically as I was pulling to the road (Mind you that I did look before I started pulling out, and saw him, but he was far behind so I felt comfortable pulling out. Obviously I didn’t realize he was coming down flying on a 25MPH road, and was pissed that he had to stop, he made such a big deal he also pissed me off and, YES I flipped my finger at him.

I moved on and kept on driving but had to stop at the light located on Cathedral Ave and New Mexico, this asshole got out of his car, and started pounding at my window so hard I thought he was going to break it… not once, not twice but 4 times and he also spit on my window. I just looked at him standing right on my face in disbelieve, with just a glass in between. When the light changed, I had no other reaction than to keep on driving. He made a left turn, as I did, and then the very first right after the turn.

When I got out of my shock, I pulled my phone and called 911, gave them the description of the car and the individual which is as follows:

Blue Ford Pick Up Truck with DC tags
White Male, on his mid 30’s, with light brown hair and a full beard, he was wearing a blue hoodie and jeans.

As this was happening, there was a number of people standing at the bus stop (Cathedral & NM towards TenleyTown Metro), probably watching in disbelieve as I was… If you happened to see this, please reply to this message. Assholes like this can not be terrorizing people because they are having a bad day. If this is what you do for something as little and insignificant as this, you NEED HELP!!”

Office Furniture for Donation:

“Does anyone know of a charitable organization who would need office furniture? And be able to pick it up from a downtown location? (preferably this week)”

In search of used music/electronic equipment in DC:

“I’m looking to replace a broken receiver for my turntable/speaker set up and I would prefer not to spend an arm and a leg! Any ideas as to where I can find a used amp or some other sort of receiver in DC (outside of craigslist)? I’m hoping there’s a storefront that I simply have yet to find in the area. If that doesn’t really exist here, any recommendations for new equipment? Thanks!”

If you had any doubts about Ivy City blowing up – you can officially drop them. Big news from the Washington Business Journal:

“The next retailer to open at the Hecht Warehouse in Northeast D.C. will be a Nike Factory store, as the athletic apparel retailer will plant its flag there by late April.

Jemal also had some more Hecht restaurant news to share: Bar magnate Geoff Dawson — of Buffalo Billiards, Jackpot and others — has signed a lease to open there with Peter Bayne, his partner in Lost & Found, Iron Horse and Rocket Bar. The bar from Dawson and Bayne will be located at 2002 Fenwick St. NE.”
