711-713 Kennedy Street, NW

Ed. Note: 713 Kennedy is located right next to the future ANXO Cidery, who also just applied for a liquor license at 711 Kennedy (closest to alley) “Bar serving cider with a seating capacity of 49. Total Occupancy Load of 49. Requesting a wine pub endorsement.”

From a press release:

Founded in 2015, Lost Sock Roasters is dedicated to developing outstanding coffee sustainably. Lost Sock carefully roasts to accentuate the unique and delicious flavors in each of its coffees.

A reader passes on the horrifying account from the Washington Post:

“A 39-year-old woman was raped at knifepoint on a moving Metro train just before 10 a.m. last month in the Wheaton-­Glenmont area of Montgomery County, prosecutors said in court Monday.”

Update from Metro Transit Police:

“Metro GM has directed MTPD to make public notification of any violent crime the same day where doing so will not hinder investigation #wmata”

1314 9th Street, NW

From the owners of 1314 1/2 9th Street, NW:

“We at 1314 1/2 Inc. are thrilled to announce that a corporation formed by Can Yurdagul of Sushi Capitol and Sushi Ogawa has leased the former Seasonal Pantry space at 1314 1/2 9th St NW as of May 1. Can found our space through a PoPville post and though sushi had never crossed our minds as a tenant we believe it is a perfect fit in that quirky space which he plans to use to its fullest. We have talked at length about what is missing on the street and much of the conversation was based on the comment section of the PoPville post citing a lack of Sunday, daytime, fast breakfast and lunch, etc. options, all gaps he plans to fill. I cannot speak as to his exact opening date but work is happening within. Stay tuned.”

Ed. Note: City Paper reports: “The restaurant is currently undergoing some cosmetic upgrades and is set to open in the next two to three weeks.”
