“Food trucks, state-of-the-art technology and selfies: the Holiday Inn Express brand knows these are a few of guests’ favorite things. The hotel brand is bringing its popular Pancake Selfie Express to the people of Washington, D.C. with its latest Pancake Selfie Express tour, rolling into the nation’s capital on Thursday, Aug. 25th & Friday, Aug. 26th. District residents can visit the truck at Adams Morgan to snap a selfie and have it printed on a free pancake made by the brand’s super smart, one-touch pancake machine. Just push a button and get a pancake in 60 seconds. Genius!”

From an email:

“The Department of General Services’ (DGS) Contract Services Unit responded to community requests to repair the broken equipment. It had been reported to DGS that children were being injured due to a broken plank on the fire truck. After evaluating the equipment, it was determined that the fire truck could not be repaired. In effort to err on the side of safety, the fire truck was disposed of by DGS to ensure there would be no further injury to children.

The decision to remove and dispose of the fire truck to protect children should have been communicated to community members who purchased the apparatus and to the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR).

DGS regrets both the lack of communication to the community – specifically to those who worked together to purchase the fire truck – and DPR of the removal and disposal of the play equipment.

DGS apologizes for the communication oversight and will replace the equipment with a new fire truck in the next six to eight weeks.”

Stay tuned…

Update from DPR:

“The DC Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) was informed that there was a piece of playground equipment (the firetruck playground equipment) that could be hazardous. DPR’s Risk Management Department went to the site to inspect the equipment. Upon arrival, they noticed the piece of equipment was not there. DPR researched internally to see if the equipment was removed and also reached out to our sister agency – Department of General Services (DGS) to see if they had removed the equipment. Neither DGS nor DPR removed the firetruck playground equipment. MPD has been notified.

Neither DPR nor DGS removes equipment without notifying the community.

DPR has contacted the vendor, which supplied the original beloved firetruck playground equipment. We are researching the cost and availability of firetruck playground equipment.”

From a press release:

“Songbyrd Record Café now offers high quality nitrogen infused cold brew and cold brew latte from Swings Coffee Roasters. Songbyrd is the first establishment in Adams Morgan to offer nitro cold brew, just in time for some of the summer’s hottest weather. On Adams Morgan Day Sunday September 11, Songbyrd will offer Kombucha and Nitro Cold Brew for sale on tap from their front patio.

Adding nitrogen to cold brew enhances the coffee’s flavor and adds a subtle sweetness. The cold brew coffee is treated with nitrogen under high pressure, then chilled in a keg and served on draught. The nitrogen infusion provides a velvety mouth feel. The tiny bubbles make the drink seem thicker as it goes down. (more…)
