“Just in, news from ATTIC DC that Ruff & Ready Furnishings of Upper 14th St will be closing the doors on its brick and mortar location at the end of November. The store was previously located at 14th and T St, NW (now occupied by Taylor Gourmet). It’s the second vintage furniture store once located on bustling 14th to move to a new area and then close up. Hunted House went through a similar evolution. On the up side, Ruff & Ready plans to maintain on online business with well priced vintage, antique and used furniture. Read the full announcement from the store’s owner Bill Troy:
“Ruff & Ready Furnishings will close its location at 4722 14th Street NW, Washington DC on Sunday November 27, 2016 at 6:00 pm. (more…)
Thanks to all who tweeted info to @PoPville while events were unfolding last night.
“Around 7:15 PM, MPD responded to the sounds of gun shots in the 1300 block of Hamilton Street, NW. Officers located the victim on the Hamilton Recreation Center who reported that while he was playing basketball he observed two people opening his backpack. He approached these two people and one of them displayed a handgun. The victim ran off and heard the sounds of gun shots. He also observed one of the people take his backpack and motorized bike. The victim was unharmed and no one reported injuries as a result of the gun shots. The Fourth District Detectives are investigating this case.
If anyone has information, please call the MPD at (202)727-9099 or text at 50411”
“We heard 8 or so shots last night. Nobody hit. Car window shot out. Neighbors and I saw a shirtless guy jumping backyard fences to get away on Georgia. Haven’t heard many shots this side of Ga. the last few years.”
Ed. Note: I couldn’t find a photo of Carter Barron in the flickr pool so please enjoy this awesome shot of Lynda Carter by Pablo Raw
The Carter Barron schedule for 2016 has been released. Looks like the format has changed – no more all-free events, instead weekly concerts benefiting Carter Barron and Rock Creek Park trails. Given how underutilized the Amphitheater has been in recent years (was told by park rangers it was due to sequestration), it’s probably a change for the better.
