From MPD:

“Yesterday evening a driver was waiting infront of Ludlow Taylor Elementry School waiting for his child to get back from a field trip and was standing outside his car when a subject walked up to him, pushed him to the gound and got into his car which was running. There was a struggle between the victim and suspect and the victim received an injury to his arm. The suspect had exited a black sedan that was being driven by another occupant. The first district detectives office is actively investigating the case.”

From an email:

East Side Yoga, opened on Monday at 518 10th St. NE, #2. In addition to being the most convenient studio to folks who live in the NE part of the Hill and Atlas District, we’ve put a lot of work into the space to make it a yoga studio like no other in town. In fact, I’ve already had multiple students tell me it’s the most beautiful yoga studio they’ve ever been to!”

“Silverman has signed a lease for the ground-floor space of the Homebody store, located next to his debut restaurant on Eighth Street SE, where he will open an evening-only fine-dining establishment that will take the Rose’s Luxury experience to the next level. During daylight hours, the space will double as a coffee shop and cafe.”

Back in July we we first learned that Souk from the owners of nearby Sweet Lobby, would be opening up a new concept in the former Hello Cupcake space on Barracks Row. I peeked my head in over the weekend and was told to stay tuned for the soft opening Wed. While it wasn’t quite photo ready, the space really looks great and will be a nice addition to the row. I’ll update later this week.
