From an email:

“Our friend, nightlife guy, and one of the co-owners of Costa Brava in Bloomingdale Doug Brown passed away over the weekend. On Saturday from 5pm – 10pm and on Sunday from 12pm – 5pm Costa Brava in Bloomingdale is doing a memorial for him and donating all the proceeds to the Brown Family. I think there’s a lot of people that liked him and would want to stop by.”


What the hell is going on today…

A reader reports:

“Walking down an alley [between Seaton and T] in Bloomingdale yesterday I got asked directions by a man who then tried to grab the family jewels. He’s thin, six foot, tan skin (Hispanic, Mediterranean, Italian, etc), short cropped hair, purple button down, olive green pants. Thought other folks in the area might be warned.”


A reader reports:

“I noticed Old Engine 12 in Bloomingdale has some changes. The employees are no longer required to wear the goofy out of place uniforms. The uniforms have been replaced with standard DCFD shirts you see DC paramedics wearing. Also, there is ANOTHER relaunch event (they did the same thing when the bar first opened). Every time I jog by there it looks pretty empty and I don’t see anyone in the second floor bar.”

Anyone go last night?

USC Trojans O.J. Simpson 32 Red College Football Throwback Jersey

“Dear PoPville,

About 3 weeks ago, my condo was robbed while both my roommate and I were home. [2nd and V St, NW] They broke in through our front door and stole about $15k worth of items. As you’ll see from the below email that I sent to friends in my neighborhood (Bloomingdale/Shaw), the police believe the most distinctive quality is a red jersey one of the suspects wore. Red OJ Simpson throwback jersey with 32 written on it. They believe he and his ‘teammates’ are still in the area and encouraged me to tell as many people as possible.”

Hey guys-

I wanted to give a quick ‘neighborhood watch’ warning/update.

Just back from the police department where they showed me surveillance footage of the guys they suspect robbed our condo. I’m very glad we didn’t wake-up during the robbery…

Four big men, estimating between 6’0 – 6’4, African American, 30-50 years old. The one distinctive fact we all need to be on the lookout for is a red throwback OJ Simpson jersey with the number 32 written on it. He believes all live or are still in the area (thanks to a big group house bust a few weeks) and think he’ll be wearing it again. Police in the area are on the lookout for it and he said if any of us see it to call 911 immediately.
