I’m writing to inform you that a friend and I were attacked last night, Sunday, January 13, 2013 at approximately 5:50 p.m. by a young adult male on a bike. We were walking to Beau Thai. As soon as we crossed third street on to Q, we heard the young male and his friends who were all hanging out at the church nearby yelling “fags.” We ignored them and kept walking on the sidewalk down Q st. Then, one of the kids – a young black male (mini afro, mid-dark brown complexion, a tight smooth face, and a black jacket) – rode his bike passed us and repeated “fags” again.
Then, he put his bike on the sidewalk and turned it around so he was facing us. He rode his bike at full speed into us. Then, he got off his bike, and hit my friend from behind. I tried to deescalate things by saying everything is ok, and we should all stay calm. The young male then walked towards me and hit me in the left jaw. His friends, a block away at the church, yelled at him to return to them. Then all left in a hurry. The police were called on, and came quickly to respond and take our statements. The Gay and Lesbian Liason Unit also arrived on the scene, and we are working to catch the young man.
1518 K Street, NW I stopped in Catch 15 over the weekend and the buildout is nearly completely finished.

7th Street, NW between S and T I noticed a coming soon sign for SiTea was posted outside Progression Place on 7th Street. And a peek in the window reveals this cool old advertisement from back in the day:
“Lake Kivu and overlooking a tea plantation in Rwanda.”
Anyone attend the lighting on Saturday?
Another cool one from Takoma Park but for me it was all about the sign out front:
