A reader sends nominates “this tragedy on Ontario between Kalorama and Euclid” for a Horse’s Ass Award. He adds:

“So sad. These homes are about 115 years old. Oh and they’re blocking a fire hydrant. Have been for days. I called the cops and they basically laughed and said I quote “if a house is on fire, then it’s the fire department problem not us” which was awesome and not surprising at all.”

Tough times for Adams Morgan Festivals (an abbreviated Adams Morgan Day is in the works but still) – now the ‘French Maid Relay Race’ at L’Enfant Cafe is moving to NoMa this year.

From a press release:

“L’Enfant Café is proud to announce the 11h annual Bastille Day party, a cultural celebration of all things French, on Saturday, July 11 from 3pm to 10pm. After celebrating the 10th anniversary on Vernon St last year, the folks at L’Enfant have decided to re-locate the fête to sister venue, Wunder Garten (150 M St NE), the all new beer garden space in NoMa.

Entry to this year’s event and D.C.’s biggest masquerade ball is $7. Advance ticket purchase is required and capacity is limited. Purchase online through www.lenfantcafe.com or www.wundergartendc.com. Guests will storm the Bastille via M St NE, just steps from the NoMa metro stop (Red Line).

The memorable performances have also moved to the new location, including can-can dancers, a New Orleans style brass marching band, burlesque dancers and the royal guests of honor, King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette.

The signature folly of the event, the world-famous ‘French Maid Relay Race,’ will take place at approximately 6pm in which racers, men and women, must each wear the risqué black and white maid costume while running back and forth across the street in order to fill a Champagne glass with soup spoons of water. Très chic! Contenders must pre-purchase a costume, with ticket purchase, before the limited supply is sold out.”
