“Dear PoPville,

Something really strange happened this morning running down Porter from Connecticut and I was hoping you could remind readers to be careful out there!

I passed a guy on the sidewalk waiting for the bus, I don’t know what set him off but next thing I knew he was chasing me down the hill screaming at me. I turned around to face him and he just kept yelling at me. I’m about 5’3 and the guy was easily 5’11-6′ and angry. I tried to calmly apologize but I’m really not sure what would have happened had another man not been running towards us shouting at the guy to knock it off.

I don’t really know what else I could have done, but just wanted to remind people to be careful around there.”


“Dear PoPville,

I took a cab home tonight from downtown DC to Cleveland Park after working late. The ride was fairly uneventful, although I thought the driver was somewhat unskilled in terms of changing lanes. He also seemed to be unable to press the gas pedal evenly, and the car basically lurched all the way home. I noticed the credit card machine had a large sticker on the bottom that said “DON’T PLAY WITH SCREEN”, but I thought nothing of it.

When we got to my building, I asked to pay with a credit card. He gave me the usual “but don’t you have cash?” line, and I truthfully said no, I didn’t. Besides, I was going to pay with my work credit card since I was working so late, and processing the expense report is much easier with a card (that also means I typically give a large tip, so I hardly think it’s unfair). Because I’m so used to paying for cabs by card, I hit the “credit card” button on the touch screen as soon as I see it. The screen then gives me an error, and the cabbie immediately says I’ve broken the machine by merely touching it. (more…)

The ups and downs continue at Uptown Tap House in Cleveland Park (RIP 4Ps). I had heard rumors that they’d be closing after New Years but their facebook and website are still active so I thought it might be false but last night a reader sends an update from RuninDC:

“Uptown will be closed until the fall while new management takes over and a new menu will be created.”
