I was walking from work Friday evening around 8pm down Irving St. past 11th St and came across a man face down on the sidewalk. He was bleeding from the mouth and ear. There were 2 people around him who witnessed the end of the assault. According to them, 3 black men in their 20s had assaulted the man from behind and took off running toward 14th laughing. The victim was dazed and when he stood up it was apparent that they had done a bit of damage to his face; he had difficulty speaking. He couldn’t recall whether they stole anything from him; he just remembered walking and then suddenly being on the ground in pain. The police responded immediately and took the eyewitnesses with them to drive around the neighborhood. It turns out they stole his wallet and phone. So sad that this happens on a pretty busy intersection.
2020 P Street, NW That was fast! India Gate is now open in the former Eola space at 2020 P St, NW. Anyone take an early taste? Photos of the menu after the jump.

“My garden [Mt. Pleasant] is finally producing produce – peppers, edamame, lots of cucumbers, the last of the peas. And tomatoes! And bonus volunteer sunflowers. The Brandywine tomato deserved a photo of its own.” If you have a great haul, beautiful tomato or something like that, send an email and a couple photos to princeofpetworth(at)gmail […]
I saw these guys just over the bridge from Woodley Park towards Dupont. I’d never seen flowers like this before – anyone know what kind it is?
