“Dear PoPville,

Do you know what the big wooden enclosure is outside the Thurgood Marshall Judiciary Building, on Mass. Ave next to Union Station? It’s pretty elaborate — the wood panels even have decorative trim — and building-sized, and it’s been there at least a month. The one time I saw the gate open, all I could see inside was a few parked trucks. Any ideas?”

The Hill is Home reported back in June:

“According to one of the workers installing the fenced area late last week, the [Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary] building needs roof repairs. The fence will hold construction materials, machinery, and trailers for about 17 months.”

“Dear PoPville,

I think a local artist was either robbed, or their entire car was stolen, and it looks like the crooks dumped his or her work in our alley on the Hill. Lots of maps, some framed, like the one shown in the photo, all titled “Inside the Beltway” and then numerous painted works on small pieces of wood. Looks like Eastern Market vendor type work, but don’t recognize it. I’ve included a photo of the signature on the maps if anyone recognizes it. Hoping to get these back to the artist before they’re wrecked.

Anyone who knows who these may belong to can email me at hillresident123(at)gmail.com”

Thanks to a reader for sending this awesome accolade about Rose’s Luxury from Bon Appetit magazine:

Later, as I’m finishing my whiskey and paying the bill, I realize why those people were willing to wait two-plus hours for a table in a city whose food culture is otherwise known mostly for power lunches: Rose’s is a game-changer.

There is a lot that sets it apart, starting with the warm, farmhouse-style dining room, kitchen-counter seating, and atrium glowing with string lights. There is the knowledgeable and friendly service. And, of course, the eclectic menu: Southern comfort food threaded with globe-trotting ingredients and ideas from Southeast Asia, Mexico, Italy, and France.

While chef-owner Aaron Silverman is clearly concerned with the food that goes out on his plates, he pays even closer attention to the people eating it. And that’s when it hits me: Rose’s isn’t just in the restaurant business; it’s in the making-people-happy business.

Read the full account ‘To find out what makes a meal here so special, I spent 12 hours trailing Silverman on a weekday in early June. Let’s just say the brilliance of Rose’s isn’t by accident.’
