Last month we learned that H Street was getting it’s first E-Cigarette store and Vape Lounge – Dumbcloud Vapor on the 400 block of H Street, NE. The 600 block is getting one too. This is the former home to (ironically?) Aspire Health Care. District Vape’s twitter page says:
“Soon to be open. D.C.’s premier full service vape shop. We carry a complete line of E-juices, starter kits, tank upgrades, RDA’s RBA’s clones & authentic mods”
DC’s first vape lounge, DC Vape Joint opened in Adams Morgan underneath the Pharmacy Bar in March.

“Mark Ladner, executive chef at Del Posto in New York City, is taking over Toki Underground on November 6, 2014 with delicious bowls of his 100% gluten-free pasta. Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, Ladner and his team have set off on a tour to bring PASTA FLYER to cities including Cambridge, Philadelphia, Providence, and now Washington, DC. The gluten-free pasta “marries traditional Italian culture with Japanese ramen efficiency” and will be offered for both lunch and dinner from 11:30am until close. Also joining Ladner in DC will be Del Posto’s executive pastry chef, Brooks Headley, with his notoriously delicious veggie burgers.”
We live in H Street, NE and this [Monday] afternoon, a woman campaigning for a DC Attorney General candidate knocked on our door. My wife was home but did not answer as she was nursing our 2-month-old. The campaign worker remained on our porch for a few minutes and sorted through some paperwork. Clearly oblivious to my wife sitting just inside the window, the woman then reached down, picked up our older son’s bag of sidewalk chalk, and nonchalantly placed it in her own bag. She then left and headed down the sidewalk towards the next house. My wife ran outside with the baby and demanded the chalk back, and the campaign worker silently returned it.
That an adult would steal a bag of sidewalk chalk is mind boggling to say the least. But to have it stolen by someone campaigning for the DC Attorney General is simply stunning. I do not share this as part of a political agenda, as up until this afternoon I had really not given any thought to this particular race [though I certainly have now].”
