Last week ANC Rep David Garber tweeted that the long awaited Willie’s Brew & Que was finally hiring. Now, these photos were posted to Willie’s facebook page. If the BBQ is any good this could be another a great addition to Navy Yard. They are located at the opposite end of Bluejacket brewery in the Boilermaker building. Stay tuned for an opening date.
“[The driver of the motorbike] popped the wheelie and I guess her shirt or something got caught on his handlebars and he lifted her into the air with the bike and somehow the bike threw her off, right in front of my car,” he recalled. “I seen her, like a bullet comes toward my car, so I stepped on the brakes.”
Cheek said he found her partially underneath his car, not moving. Her injuries were extensive – a broken pelvic bone, broken tailbone and a left broken leg, among other injuries.
In the meantime, her cousin said the biker crashed as well – but she said he stood up, looked back and laughed before jumping on the other rider’s bike and escaped.
“After last night’s incident, which could have in all likelihood killed this victim , I would like to know how we as a community can ban together and get some serious changes to the laws and enforcement. We cannot sit back and watch these people terrorize our neighborhoods and streets any longer without consequence. Why does it take a near fatal hit and run to bring about change?”
Another reader shares a conversation they had with MPD after the earlier reports posted here. MPD responded:
“I understand your frustration and don’t agree that we are more concerned about illegal riders than residents…we are acting within our scope of policy and safety for all ….we will continue to use surveillance via the helicopter and try to identify the perpetrators/arrest when we can …. Also seize those vehicles that are on public space when able to do such safely .. This is a challenge for all of law enforcement.
you may call 911 and MPD would respond to this however we will not pursue them/chase them around the streets.”
Back in July we heard some scuttlebutt that some Portuguese flame-grilled chicken could be headed toward the western end of H Street, NE. It’s official – Nando’s Peri Peri is coming to 411 and 413 H Street, NE. The folks from Nando’s tell me “we will be opening a new Nando’s in spring 2015 (hopefully in May) on H Street NE.”
A couple of weeks ago we noted that it looked like Federal had closed for more than repairs. Thanks to @Julie32BJ for tweeting us the photo above from Adams Morgan Day. A tipster told me some more details about the plans on Saturday and if it weren’t for the fact that I may or may not have drank my weight in the champagne of beers shortly after that conversation, I’d be able to remember what he said. At any rate a “music house and record cafe” sounds awesome. I look forward to remembering/learning more about it. Updates when they get closer to opening.
