Thanks to a reader for sending word:

“My building (1700 2nd st NW) signed dc city smokehouse as the tenant in our retail space. This is the bit from my condo association update:

The Board is excited to welcome DCitySmokehouse to the Association. In short, the much-beloved BBQ shop from down the street is moving into our commercial space. We’re working with them to arrange a time when they can meet the Association and answer questions.

Current location with their, apparently, controversial signage:

Updates when the exact details/dates become available.

“Dear PoPville,

Approximately a week ago Verizon installed this FIOS related travesty in an alley in Bloomingdale. The bundle of wires is sitting on the ground and the wires are zip tied to a neighbor’s fence. Note that the wires don’t even travel down the pole; rather they hang straight down from the cross wires and attach to a fence. Has anyone else seen anything like this I’m hoping it is temporary and they will come back to clean up as it is sloppy and also could be easily vandalized / damaged.”
