“Dear PoPville,

This was stuck on a car windshield on Porter Street this morning.

Having seen the comments on bad parking on PoP many times, I know someone will say, “Well maybe they parked in between two cars that were there at the time and that’s why they are taking up a spot and a half…”

This car was at the end of the parking lane, with five feet between their rear bumper and the parking zone sign.

So it really was a douchie parking job…”

A few weeks ago I reported some scuttlebutt that Coppi’s Italian restaurant (formerly of U Street) would be taking over the former Lavandou French restaurant next to Nanny O’Briens in Cleveland Park. On their facebook page they say: “We will be making the grand reopening announcement within the week. Getting closer!”

Woman Held Against Will in Taxi in Cleveland Park:

“I want to make DC aware of something terrifying that occurred to me on Friday evening, September 26th, around 10:30 pm, after taking a taxi home to Cleveland Park.

After repeated personal questions and inappropriate comments (eg “I like you,” “will you go on a date with me?”), the cab driver stopped in front of my building, looked me in the eyes, intensely, and told me I was locked inside his cab until I handed over “enough” cash. (He had not turned on the meter for the trip). I was trapped inside and scared, so I complied with his request to hand over cash.

I filed a police report with MPD immediately following the incident, I have consulted an attorney, and I plan to press charges.

I notified the DC taxicab commision of the incident, and I plan to do the same in Maryland- the cab had Maryland plates.

It is outrageous how difficult it can be for women to travel around this city safely.”

“Dear PoPville,

My boyfriend and I were leaving the big apt complex on Quebec and Connecticut tonight [Wed.] around 10:15. We walked out the side and turned left onto Quebec. A couple was standing there looking distressed. They said they had just been mugged by 2 men. One man held a knife up to the woman’s throat and the other had a gun. They took the woman’s bag and the man’s wallet. They called the police as they were telling us what happened. They said the guys had been standing on the sidewalk in a shadowy spot. Just want to give a heads up to the neighborhood.”
