“Dear PoPville,

I want to find my pair of lost/stolen cowboy boots.

As we were breaking up, my ex took them and gave them to a random girl at Ebenezer’s Coffee House at 2nd and F NE. I’ve made posters to put up around the area, but missing cowboy boots is kind of hilarious, and I really want them back so maybe this would help.”

A reader reports:

Ninella‘s (formerly Park Cafe) near 13th St, SE, and East Capitol St appears to be closed and the Lincoln Park Kitchen & Wine Bar will be taking it’s place. “Coming soon” banner and menu attached.”

A reader sends this one from the 1300 block of F St, NE:

“This one ruined the roofline. Hopefully they’ll add a covered porch.”

I actually think this is a pretty nice one. But agree about hoping they add a covered porch. You like the way it’s turning out?

Back in July it was reported that Las Placitas would be moving from 517 8th Street, SE on Barracks Row further down 8th to the old Quiznos space. Turns out they’re taking over the former Chicken Tortilla space next to the former Levi’s Port Cafe. The owner said “very soon”. I also asked him about plans for the upper 14th Street, NW location and he said they still plan on opening in a “few months”. Stay tuned on both fronts.



And for those curious about the beer garden coming in on the other side of 8th and L St, SE:




Nice!! Thanks to a reader for sending the big news from the Washington Business Journal:
