8th and Monroe Street, NE

Yesterday on the Brookland listserv a resident shared:

“The manager of Filter shared yesterday when I was there that they are closing their Monroe St. location on Sunday (4/30) due to insufficient business. The bike shop will remain, and his understanding is that they have plans to open something more food-centric in the space where the coffee shop has been.”

I spoke with the owner of the Bike Rack who tells me that Little Red Fox will be taking over the space!! You can expect:

“variety of healthy take out foods, breakfast burritos and coffee drinks.”

Stay tuned for lots more info next week.

“Dear PoPville,

For the past few weeks, I’ve been hearing a bass sound (like a stereo at low volume but with the bass turned up) in and around my house on the southwest end of Brookland. I chalked it up to house parties for a while, but finally grew so annoyed with it that I went out looking for the origin late tonight, when traffic and other noises would be low and I could get a bead on where it was coming from. Needless to say, I did not find the source. The rain probably hampered my pursuit, since I’m sure my umbrella was causing some echoes.

I know I’m not going mad since I’ve recorded the sound electronically and listened to it on playback to confirm that it does exist. I even went up to a couple cops parked nearby while on my walkabout and asked them if they heard it (they did, but didn’t know where it was coming from). I have literally no theories…there’s no construction/recently finished buildings nearby, no new bars/clubs, etc. (more…)
