The Little Beet is coming to the former Pei Wei space next to 18th Street Lounge. Their website says:

“The Little Beet was founded with one simple philosophy: To serve real food deliciously.

Inspired by local, seasonal and natural ingredients, Chef Franklin Becker has created a menu that offers wholesome food that makes you feel real good about eating it, and even better after.

All of our ingredients are carefully sourced from farmers and purveyors we trust, so you can too. We firmly believe what grows together, goes together. All of The Little Beet’s menu items are 100% gluten-free. But more importantly, they are also 100% guiltin’ free. Good food never tasted so good!”

“There is some neat new signage up at 1129 20th St. NW for The Green Bee Cafe. I did a quick google search and found out that it is being opened by the folks from Bread and Brew. This was previously the site of Newton’s Noodles.”

You can see The Green Bee Cafe’s facebook page here. Updates as they get closer to opening.

From MPD:

“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Major Crash Unit are investigating a traffic fatality which occurred at the intersection of 1st and H Streets, Northwest.

On Saturday, September 19, 2015, at approximately 9:05 am, four pedestrians entered the roadway in a marked crosswalk on H Street, Northwest, where they were struck by a 1998 Crown Victoria which was turning westbound onto H Street, Northwest from Southbound 1St Street, Northwest. The operator of the vehicle remained on the scene. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel transported all of the victims to local hospitals for treatment where one of the victims succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead on Thursday, September 24, 2015.

The decedent has been identified as 62 year-old Janet Hoy of Watertown, Wisconsin.

This crash is currently under investigation.

The Metropolitan Police Department is asking anyone with information about this case to call the police at (202) 727-9099. Additionally, anonymous information may be submitted to the department’s TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411.”


From a press release:

“The Golden Triangle Business Improvement District and D.C. Fire and EMS Department are joining forces to see if they can get at least 200 people to learn CPR skills in one day in the neighborhood during the Golden Triangle CPR Challenge.

Hands-Only CPR involves training people to administer CPR to the beat of the classic disco song “Stayin’ Alive.” CPR can more than double a person’s chances of survival, and “Stayin’ Alive” has the right beat for Hands-Only CPR.

The CPR Challenge will take place Fri., Sept. 18 from 10 a.m.–3 p.m. in Farragut Park at Connecticut Avenue and K Street with quick 20 minute sessions, open to all area workers and residents. The training is easy; people can just walk up without an appointment. The sessions will be part of the BID’s Farragut Fridays.

“We encourage everyone to take part in this training. Most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public location die because they don’t receive immediate CPR from someone on the scene. Bystanders will never know when they may need to administer CPR,” says Dr. Jullette Saussy, medical director, D.C. Fire and EMS Department.”

A reader reports:

“I just saw a construction permit in the window of the old Burberry at M and Connecticut NW that says the Tiny Jewel Box is knocking down the wall in between and expanding into the corner space. It looks like it won’t be so tiny anymore!”

Ed. Note: The new Burberry store is now open in CityCenter.
