From a press release:

“After 10 years at its current location, neighborhood staple Glover Park Hardware is closing its doors on Wisconsin Avenue. The store’s official last day of business at its current location is scheduled for January 15, 2015.

Glover Park Hardware opened in 2005, the second of nine Ace Hardware stores opened in DC and Baltimore by A Few Cool Hardware Stores’ owners Gina Schaefer and Marc Friedman. The owners decided to relocate the store when they were unable to renegotiate the lease, which expires at the end of the year. “We have really enjoyed our spot in Glover Park but it’s time for us to move. We love our Glover Park Community and are committed to reopening in this neighborhood,” says Schaefer.

The company is actively looking for a new location for Glover Park Hardware and hopes to find a storefront where they can expand to meet the needs of their customers. Updates regarding the store’s move will be posted on their website at www.acehardwaredc.com, and will also be sent out periodically via email and social media.

5lb+ Pho Challenge Bowl WINNER!

We just had someone complete our Pho Challenge. He did it in 30min 41sec.

2lbs of meat, 2lbs of noodles, 1lb of sprouts and onions, and 3 quarts of broth all demolished.

AND he is a visiting tourist (Canada) who just happened to be coming in for lunch, saw the bowl and decided it would be a fun part of his vacation.

He wins his name on our plaque, his pictures on our website, as well as $100 in TryCaviar credits (only to the first person to beat the bowl).”

Thanks to a reader for passing on: “So this is a thing that’s happening on the Glover Park listserv…”

Folks: I do not believe the massage parlor in Glover Park is a brothel, nor do I believe it is involved with child sex trafficking or anything of the kind. Let’s back down from these unsubstantiated charges, please. To the best of my knowledge, it is a legitimate massage business, which has had one unfortunate incident that was immediately reported by the manager to MPD.

Response:

All due respect, there is no way only one client gets a hand-job at a massage parlor. For you to chalk this up to “one unfortunate incident” is deeply concerning.

Furthermore, when I simply stop on the street and chat with random men standing out front at midnight on a Friday night and ask them what they know about the massage parlor and they VERY FIRST thing they said was they heard “they give good head,” there is a problem.

I find it difficult to understand why Glover Park residents would make a fuss over JPs [Stripclub] and turn a blind eye to reports of men getting “hand jobs” and “head” right next door a place, where during the day time, there are toddlers and young children running around all over the nail salon.

How does that make any sense?

Ed. Note: MPD also responded “Metropolitan Police Department’s Human Trafficking Unit conducted an investigation into this location and it looks like they are conducting a legitimate business. We will continue to monitor and if you see anything that is out of the ordinary feel free to contact me directly.”
