“I’m about to install security cameras at my house. Does PoPville have any tips, tricks or lessons learned on their installation, position, lighting, coverage, etc. and if they post signs on their property alerting people to the video surveillance.”

“Anyone have recommendations for unique (and possibly local) gift ideas? Ranging from stocking stuffers through main gifts — any suggestions are appreciated!”

Maybe it’s the nihilist in me but I’m loving the metro store. Also in previous years lots of folks have asked about getting a PoPville shirt – email me at [email protected] if interested in one. Also the National Building Museum gift shop is pretty great too.

found

“I found this gear on the street this morning on Irving St. NW between 13th & 14th. I actually have a pretty success rate of tracking down owners of stolen belongings I find on the street. I’ve returned gym clothes, rock climbing gear, at least 4 wallets, legal papers, a stolen car and countless packages that the thief decided wasn’t of use. I actually enjoy the sleuthing, but in this case, I don’t even know what these harnesses, or this little measuring triangle are used for, so I don’t have a starting point. Tree climbing? Utility work? Construction?”

Ed. Note: I’ve forwarded to the guy who’s friend’s climbing gear was stolen on Sherman but it’s not his.

“It looks like someone had a bag stolen, probably from a car. We found a lot of workout gear and shoes nearby and put it all back in the bag. If you can describe the bag, we’re happy to try to get it back to you. No ID or wallet inside. ”

“I want to open up by saying I’m very sorry to the owner of the white Honda sedan that I hit between 15th and 16th. I was frazzled and had my spouse come by to help me; he left a note, but it was left on the wrong car. After realizing this walking by later, when the damaged car was gone and the note was still there, we called DC police to self-report the incident, and they said there was nothing we can do.

However, we want to do the right thing – so if it was your car, please reach out. We’d very much like to make things right.”

“I have a friend coming into town over New Year’s, and I am looking for good NYE suggestions. I have been in DC for ~5 years, but either been out of town or done something quiet at home. We are not interested in a big mega-party or club event. So: Are there any restaurants that have especially interesting NYE specials? Any artsy events? Good places for a quieter but still special celebratory evening?

Thanks for any suggestions!”

“It was in a parking space against the curb, halfway between N & O on the east side of 9th Street NW, so I suspect it fell out of/off of a car. It’s full of CFA study guides and black binders of class notes as well as a couple of personal items.

Message me if you lost it & tell me what the personal items are; we will get it back to you somehow.”

“On Saturday I found a men’s silver wedding band in the alley between 7th Street and 7th Place, NW. It’s fairly distinctive with gold detailing and raised engraving. I’m sure someone is missing it so just wanted to see if you would share this with the group.”

“Since it is *nearly* December and I am fairly new to DC, I was wondering if there are any must-see holiday events that I should go to! Also, I would really like to attend a performance of the Nutcracker, has anyone seen the Washington Ballet version?”

Ed. Note: Yesterday I suggested folks check out all the CityCenterDC decorations and Zoo Lights. Today I’ll also add Miracle on 7th and Garden District if you’d like to add a little booze to the festivities.

I’ve been getting tons of queries about where to buy a Christmas Tree this year. There were a bunch of recs given that support charities @PoPville on twitter over the weekend. But let’s just compile a list in the comments here and let’s try to give preference to ones that benefit charities. A lot of folks suggested those that benefit elementary schools: (more…)
