Well, they put up a good fight

Vivid’s Facebook page says:

“Vivid Lounge will quickly become your favorite destination this summer! We will bring some new flavor to the District by catering to a diverse crowd and offering great deals on drinks & food. Also, did we mention we’re located at the heart of DC’s historic U St. Corridor? More info coming soon.”

Handsome Cock (formerly Touchdown, and Momo’s sports bar), above the Codmother, is now Vivid Lounge.

And that’s pretty much all I have to say about that.

“Dear PoPville,

Last night around 10p I took my dog out for his evening walk and called my boyfriend (since he is currently out of town). As I turned the corner onto U street from 14th, a man, seemingly not impaired in any manner, approached me and grabbed me around the waist. I immediately screamed, shoved him off and ran to my apartment building.

Although shaken up and a bit scared, I am totally fine but I wanted to share this incident given the importance of staying alert, aware and off of your phone while walking at night. Being on the phone is not a reason to excuse this behavior, however it was a good reminder to make sure you are walking with a purpose and are fully attentive.”
