From MPD:

“The Metropolitan Police Department has announced that on Wednesday, February 25, 2015, an arrest was made in connection to two carjackings which occurred throughout the District of Columbia.

On Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at approximately 1:40 p.m. officers from the Second District received a call for two armed carjackings in progress. The first carjacking occurred in the 3100 block of P Street, NW. The second carjacking was in close proximity and occurred in the 2600 block of P, Street, NW. In both carjackings a suspect approached an operator of a vehicle, and demanded the keys while displaying a gun. The victim in the 3100 block of P Street, NW was able to drive off. The victim in the 2600 block of P Street, NW complied and the suspect drove away in the victim’s vehicle.

Members of the United States Park Police then observed the vehicle and attempted to conduct a traffic stop. The suspects fled at a high rate of speed. Park Police Officers continued to follow the suspect. The suspect exited the vehicle and fled on foot. After a brief foot pursuit the suspect was apprehended by members of the U.S. Park Police. After further investigation by MPDC detectives, 21 year-old Ronald E. Johnson, of Northwest, D.C was arrested and charged with two counts of Armed Carjacking and one count of Assault with a Deadly Weapon.”

Papa Beard’s website says:

“Known as the baker of the “World’s Best Cream Puffs,” Beard Papa’s has been a household name since 1999 when we opened the first cream puff shop in Osaka, Japan pumping out this unique French choux dough puffs to happy people everywhere. Since that time, our mission has remained unchanged – to pursue uncompromising quality in everything we do. By remaining steadfast in our quality commitment, Beard Papa’s has spawned a devout following of loyalists who will attest that once you taste our cream puffs, you will agree, they are like no other.”

You can see their products here. Coming to DC this Spring.

Also interesting to note this space is another froyo casualty…

Fear not for the Hilton brothers – Chez Billy Sud expanding in Georgetown. Sounds pretty sweet too – the addition next door (across from the patio) will have a wine bar and a capacity of about 100. In addition to wine there will be sweet and savory crepes, charcuterie and a “sizable cocktail list”. It’s a place where you can “relax before or after dinner in the dining room” according to co-owner Ian Hilton. If all goes well it should open in early Fall.
