I wanted to let you know that at 1 pm yesterday afternoon my husband was assaulted and mugged outside our house on Shepherd St. 1300 block. 3 teenagers surrounded him and puched him several times and shoved himto the ground, he got up and ran but they chased, ripping off his backpack. He then turned and chased them while calling the police. Bag was found by a worker in the alley but laptop was gone. I am so shocked and saddened by this violent act in broad daylight on a busy residential street in a neighborhood that i love so much. Residents should keep awareness up at all times i guess.
1924 8th Street, NW looking north towards Florida Ave and Dunya Get ready for a lot more but to start here is a short and sweet one from Freehand [from chef Tim Ma, owner of Water & Wall in Arlington and Maple Ave in Vienna]: “New upscale restaurant. Total Occupancy Load of 99.”
Don’t get me wrong – the bars and restaurants are good too – but this is the best.
“Tomatoes and Jalapenos grown on a rooftop near U street.” Ed. Note: When your gardens start to get full of tomatoes, cucumbers, whatever you’re growing – send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with Garden Haul in the title and please include the neighborhood where you grew it.
I was mesmerized by this roof. Kalorama.
