“Dear PoPville,

Around 5:15pm yesterday (Wednesday), the 42 bus that usually goes through Dupont Circle made some wrong turns and ended up heading east on Q St. Upon trying to make a left onto Connecticut Ave., the driver realized the impossibility of such a feat. It took the better part of ten minutes to navigate the turn, but in the end he managed it–scraping up the side of a car and the side of the bridge in the process, however.

If this is your vehicle, the bus number was 7144. I hope the info helps if you need to contact Wmata or your insurance. Sorry for the poor-quality picture.”

From a press release:

“For its second monthly benefit event “A Good Reason to Drink,” Bar Dupont will raise funds for Food & Friends, a D.C. based non-profit on a mission to provide medically-specialized meals and nutrition counseling to people living with life-challenging illnesses.

On Wednesday, July 27, beginning at 11:00 a.m. the neighborhood restaurant in Dupont Circle will donate 15% of its proceeds from the day’s sales to support Food & Friends. In addition, a special extended happy hour will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. that day, featuring live music from DJ Cuzzin B, food and drink specials, and a chance to learn more about Food & Friends’ work in the community.

Happy Hour specials at Bar Dupont include $5 drafts, select wines for $6 per glass, and $7 specialty cocktails including cool and fizzy Moscow Mules and refreshing Deconstructed Grapefruits with Lemongrass Vodka, St. Germain, and San Pelligrino Limonata. Happy Hour food specials are $5 and include savory, herbal Lamb Meatballs, spicy grilled Shishito Peppers, crisp roasted Brussels Sprouts and the bar’s famous Dupont Fries.”

Back in May CNN reported:

“President Barack Obama took a detour on his Asia trip Monday when he dined with celebrity chef and adventurous eater Anthony Bourdain in Vietnam.

After finishing up at Hanoi restaurant Bún chả Hương Liên, Bourdain tweeted that he had picked up the $6 tab on a shared “bun Cha dinner.”

And Pho 18 rolled with it!!  Anyone try it?
