Thanks to a reader for sending word that windows at Old City Cafe have been papered over. Old City Cafe opened up at 1773 Columbia Rd, NW back in 2007. You can see their menu here. Calls to the restaurant ring without being answered or going to voicemail. Are there any fans?
I did notice a window was smashed on the left hand side so perhaps it is related?

“There’s no better place to celebrate the abolition of the booze-prohibiting 18th amendment than a place with the largest selection of whiskey in the Western hemisphere. Jack Rose Dining Saloon is celebrating the day alcohol was made legal once again with its 3rd Annual Repeal Day Celebration complete with prohibition-era cocktails in a basement speakeasy, historic whiskey flights on draft, bottomless bubbles, 1930s-inspired nibbles and even burlesque performances.
For those who want to celebrate in the truest Repeal Day fashion, the booze-fueled Repeal Day Party will run from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. with drink specials all evening: classic prohibition-era cocktails such as the Clover Club and Astoria for $9, specialty whiskeys for $8, prohibition punches for $7, and bottomless bubbles for $20.
And in the just-opened Whiskey Cellar, the bar’s signature four-whiskey draft system will dispense a selection of historic bourbons and rye whiskeys. The Whiskey Cellar is a dimly-lit, hidden basement bar decorated with leather chairs and couches, whiskey barrel-repurposed tables and a rare exhibition of pre-prohibition whiskey bottlings – the perfect speakeasy-style setting for a Repeal Day celebration.
Burlesque dancers will perform for spectators throughout the evening while cigarette girls will offer a selection of specially-priced cigars. Guests are encouraged to dress to the nines in flapper dresses and swanky suits, donning their most Prohibition-era attire.
There is no admission fee to the Repeal Day Party at Jack Rose and is open to the public.”

My husband was just mugged on 17th street, just south of kalorama [8:45pm Wed. night]. The police have apprehended suspects.
They didn’t injure him but threatened him with a knife, which my husband didn’t see.
What’s strange is that they were sitting on my neighbor’s front porch, and we just thought that they were the basement tenants.
My husband said a friendly hello, and the first guy grabbed him. Once he was under constraint, the other two popped up out of the basement steps and went through his pockets, taking his iphone and all of his cash.”
“At approximately 9:00 PM this evening a victim was robbed of his cell phone in the 2300 block of 17th Street, Northwest.
Nearby officers who were conducting a robbery operation immediately stopped the 3 subjects who committed the robbery.
The victim’s cell phone was recovered from one of the suspects.”
Update from the OP:
“Update on this story as of 11:00 am this morning:
Authorities were unable to press charges against the suspects because the police searched them prematurely.”
