Metropolitan area, including Virginia and Maryland, Wahlburgers will deliver a dining experience built on the Wahlberg family values of heartfelt hospitality and fun while offering a menu that emphasizes creativity and quality ingredients.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing Wahlburgers to our nation’s capital, especially during such an exciting election year,” said Rick Vanzura, CEO of Wahlburgers. “We look forward to serving D.C.’s diverse community and welcoming everyone from foreign ambassadors and elected officials to students and visitors.”

“Dear PoPville,

Big excitement outside SpaLogic in Dupont circle today. A mom accidentally locked her baby in the car in a hot afternoon! 911 was called and they got the baby out safely without even breaking a window! The sweet spa employees brought out cold water to mom and baby and invited them indie to sit in the AC and cool down after. Happy ending for all!”

2100 M St, NW

Thanks to Justin for sending the update on Canteen:

“Oh and for those who asked, no there are no bathrooms. It’s literally just that outside patio. I think if you walk down around the corner you can go into the office building and use their’s but I’m not certain.

Ed. Note: A commenter writes: “They do have a bathroom- literally half a block away. You had to walk down 21st Street past the gift shop, go through the glass double doors on the right, down the stairs, follow the hallway, 2nd or 3rd door on the left. “Breaking the seal” is a major commitment.

And no way to run a tab, single transactions only. $9 for the hot dog, $10 for the pulled pork”

Bummer. From Books for America:

“Our Dupont Bookstore is Closing!

On November 22, 2005 we opened the doors on our bookstore at 22nd & P in Washington, DC. It has been an amazing decade on the edge of Dupont Circle but unfortunately it will soon be time for us to close the doors on the store for the last time. While the bookstore will be closing, we will be continuing our book collection and library-building efforts and more than ever, we need you to donate as many books and other items as you can!

As many of you know, like many other non-profit organizations we have had a tough time financially for several years now and we now must take some time to regroup, reorganize and whatever other “re-” cliche management-speak term we can come up with 🙂 The management of the building the store is in has been very patient and very kind in allowing us to struggle on for a while and I would like to thank them for everything they have done for us over the years.

The store will close at the end of June. Until then we will have fantastic sales on our books, CDs and DVDs. Our hope is that we will be able to open another store in DC sometime soon, but we do not yet have a timeline for that.

So, I would HIGHLY recommend you come on in and stock up!! We will keep bringing new inventory for the next couple weeks. Beginning immediately, all books at the store are 25% off the marked price; CDs and DVDs are $2 each and if the price sticker is dated more than 30 days old, the CDs and DVDs will be just $1. This applies to all CDs & DVDs – singles and box sets.

All of your book purchases and donations and helped us grant more than 1,000,000 books to local schools, shelters and many other organizations. Thank you so much for that.

On a personal note, I have spent much of the past few years working out at our warehouse in Fairfax and I have greatly missed all the regulars at the store who became friends over so many years. Hopefully we will be able to open another bookstore soon and I will be able to see you all once again. Well, most of you. Some of you were, um, well…you know who you are 🙂

Cheers,
Steve Hersey
Founder & President”
