Man Threatened Bikers on 8th St. SE Barracks Row (500 block)

“While I was riding my bike home to Eastern Market from my gym at Navy Yard around 8:15 this [Monday] morning, a man walked out into the middle of the street in front of my bike. He had this crazy look on his face and he stared at me intently as he walked out into the street in front of me. I slowed down and tried to maneuver around him, but he lunged at me as though he was going to hurt me or pull me off of my bike.

I screamed at him and tried to ride the other way and sideswiped a car, which was stopped because the crazy man and I were in the middle of the street. Thankfully I was able to get away unharmed. I reported the incident to metro police, and I spoke with one of the officers who patrols in the area, and he said that he would look out.

If you’re riding in that area, please stay extra alert! I’m concerned because there have been other recent reports of people being attacked on their bikes (a pregnant woman was stabbed in the arm on her bike in SE about a month ago). I usually choose to ride on Barracks Row because there are lots of people around. I will probably avoid that street from now on and take a different route.”

Nice update from theWashington City Paper on the plans for the new restaurant from the owner of Rose’s Luxury coming to the former Homebody space on Barracks Row:

“About that cool restaurant concept: In the mornings, Pineapple and Pearls will host a small cafe in the front serving coffee, pastries, to-go sandwiches, and other breakfast items. In the evenings, it will transform into a fine dining restaurant featuring a prix-fixe tasting menu.”

hines flea

“Dear PoPville,

It is with great sadness that I received the news that the city plans to take over the Flea at Eastern Market that Mike Berman and Diverse Managements, LLC have spent years creating and running smoothly.

Mr. Berman and his team have put their hearts and souls into this weekly market. They’ve created an amazing weekly gathering of the city’s most vibrant, diverse, and talented vendors. They have survived many challenges in over 30 years to do this. All the while, Mr.Berman and his team have shown the utmost concern and fairness to all their vendors. Many years of honorable service and fairness are being ignored by the Department of General Services’ decision to terminate Mr.Berman’s contract.

In what way can the city justify suddenly seizing the creation and livelihood of Mr. Berman and the 15 people he currently employs?

They have been given notice that in two months, the City will be the running their section of the market. The members of Mr.Berman’s team have been involved with the market from the beginning. For many of them, it is their life’s work. For decades, the weekly market has been their livelihood. I’m sorry to overuse that word, but there is no other way to put it. These people have given so much to this market and now everything they have built is being taken from them. Imagine working somewhere for over 30 years and doing a great job at it and then suddenly being told that in two months, your position is being taken. Is this the way that the city wants to treat the people who have spent their lives creating the Flea at Eastern Market, an institution that does nothing but benefit the community (through incubating small businesses, bringing people together, supporting local farms and artists, outreach for the homeless, etc)?

Management of the 300 block of 7th Streetmay offer a slight revenue increase to the currently city run Eastern Market, but it is taking away an entire world for the hard-working people who have made this market what it is today.

The decision from the Department of General Services has come with no warning at all. Mr.Berman and his vendors have just survived an incredibly challenging displacement by the Hines School development project. Mr.Berman and his team were able to engineer the best layout and logistical strategy to protect and maintain the livelihood of the vendors that have been under his management for many years. This was not easy and now that the hard-work has been done, the city has announced its seizure.

At best, this is a very thoughtless and irresponsible move by the DGS. But to many, it feels much worse.

I do not believe that my city is this immoral.

Please help stop the DGS’s shortsighted action.”

OP’s dog, Oscar, doing much better today

“Dear PoPville,

Wanted to send one final follow-up which is that the judge ruled in our favor and Arbor the Sheepdog is now officially a “Potentially Dangerous Dog” – which means that if he bites again, he will be designated a “Dangerous Dog” and is also under certain restrictions now as a “Potentially Dangerous Dog” as detailed below:

§ 8-1905. Dangerous dog and potentially dangerous dog owner responsibilities.

It shall be unlawful to:
(1) Keep a potentially dangerous or dangerous dog without a valid certificate of registration issued under § 8-1904;
(2) Permit a potentially dangerous dog to be outside a proper enclosure unless the potentially dangerous dog is under the control of a responsible person and restrained by a chain or leash, not exceeding 4 feet in length;
(3) Fail to maintain a dangerous dog exclusively on the owner’s property except for medical treatment or examination. When removed from the owner’s property for medical treatment or examination, the dangerous dog shall be caged or under the control of a responsible person and muzzled and restrained with a chain or leash, not exceeding 4 feet in length. The muzzle shall be made in a manner that will not cause injury to the dangerous dog or interfere with its vision or respiration, but shall prevent it from biting any human being or animal;
(4) Fail to notify the Mayor within 24 hours if a potentially dangerous or dangerous dog is on the loose, is unconfined, has attacked another domestic animal, has attacked a human being, has died, has been sold, or has been given away. If the potentially dangerous or dangerous dog has been sold or given away, the owner shall also provide the Mayor with the name, address, and telephone number of the new owner of the potentially dangerous or dangerous dog;
(5) Fail to surrender a potentially dangerous or dangerous dog to the Mayor for safe confinement pending disposition of the case when there is a reason to believe that the potentially dangerous or dangerous dog poses a threat to public safety;
(6) Fail to comply with any special security or care requirements for a potentially dangerous or dangerous dog the Mayor may establish pursuant to § 8-1903; or
(7) Remove a dangerous dog from the District without written permission from the Mayor.

It’s not much, but it’s something! Hopefully Capitol Hill neighbors can keep an eye out and report to Animal Control if anything else happens.”
