Thanks to FridayGirl for sending from Blue Bottle:

“Coming Summer 2017 to Washington D.C. See you in Georgetown”

and from their blog:

“Washington D.C.is home to a burgeoning coffee scene. Our first cafe there will be located in Georgetown, a quintessential D.C. neighborhood.

We have reason to believe that a cafe with expertly sourced coffees, roasted and dialed in to our specifications, will be welcome and appreciated. President Obama recently ordered a fleet of Chemex emblazoned with his seal. And 200 years ago, The White House Cookbook published this sentiment by Mrs. F. L. Gilette: “Boiling water is a very important desideratum in the making of a good cup of coffee or tea… Do not boil the water more than three or four minutes; longer boiling ruins the water for coffee or tea-making, as most of its natural properties escape by evaporation, leaving a very insipid liquid, composed mostly of lime and iron, that would ruin the best coffee.”

We’re glad to take up the charge against “insipid liquid,” and our hope is that we will have three cafes in D.C. by 2018. Our first, on Potomac Street, is located in proximity to many lovely shops and interesting purveyors right off the C&O Canal Towpath—a tributary of the Potomac River with an adjacent footpath.

More background on their coffee here.

3040 M Street, NW back in 2012. Today the left side, previously Barnes & Noble, is now a Nike store and the Right side was a former Barneys and is the future Amazon

Thanks to FridayGirl for sending from the Washington Post:

“Steven Roth, the chief executive of Vornado Realty Trust, told investors this week that Amazon has leased 10,000 square feet at 3040 M St. NW in Georgetown, a storefront previously occupied by Barneys New York. He did not specify when the store is set to open.”

From a press release:

Insomnia Cookies is opening two new locations in the District of Columbia this summer. The stores at 3204 O Street N.W. and 1309 H Street N.E. will be in the District’s vibrant H Street Corridor and Georgetown Neighborhoods. The bakery which specializes in serving warm, delicious cookies until 3 a.m. daily opened its first capital city location in Adams Morgan (photo above) last November. With the addition of these two locations, Insomnia Cookies will be able to extend its delivery service to thousands of people. (more…)

From MPD:

“On April 28, 2017 at approximately 7:30 pm, a 911 call was received for the sounds of gunshots in the 1400 Block of Wisconsin Avenue NW. Second District units responded to the location and were unable to locate a victim or crime scene.

Shortly thereafter, a victim arrived at GW Hospital suffering from a minor injury. A preliminary investigation revealed that this incident did not involve the victim being a target of a crime. This investigation is ongoing and there is no perceived danger to the community.”

So what are the options here? Man shoots self? Shot by a friend? Stray bullet?

Back in March of 2016 Washington Business Journal reported:

“We are told it will be a grilled cheese-focused joint called (wait for it) “Say Cheese.” Work in the 865-square-foot space will include new walls, floors, ceilings, HVAC and a kitchen hood. The cafe will seat 14, but have an occupancy of 45.”

Looking pretty close:

“Dear PoPville,

I was sideswiped by a large black SUV on Water St. near 30th on Friday morning at about 7:45. The driver did stop, but I believe he may have misrepresented what happened, because I (cyclist) was given a ticket (at the hospital while I was awaiting getting stitches) for changing lanes without caution (I was not changing lanes). I am seeking any witnesses to the accident.”

If you witnessed this incident please email [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch with OP. Thanks.
