“Dear PoPville,

Great summary (courtesy of Ryan Aires) of the ANC6A EDZ Committee meeting about the upcoming Chick-Fil-A planned for the old Checkers spot at 1401 Maryland Ave, NE. He wanted to highlight was that DDOT actually requested the 14th entrance/ exit that has no residences be closed, while allowing the G street entrance/ exit to stay open. We are hoping to have another meeting with DDOT representatives to ask them about that.

chickfila

High level summary – residents are super concerned about the traffic on narrow G Street, and Chick-Fil-A seemed unaware that it would be an issue. Planned opening is March 2017.

Site Design

the existing building will remain more or less how it is now
they are going to build off the back of the building extending it ~28′ to the east
the easement on 14th Street is going to be closed to traffic
one of the designers (I didn’t catch his name) said that this was actually requested by DDOT
the expected flow of cars is:
entry from Maryland Ave or G Street
cars will order on the north east side of the building (facing Maryland Ave)
cars will drive west towards 14th Street, loop around the building and pick up their orders on the Southeast side of the building (facing G Street)
cars can then exit onto Maryland Ave or G Street
the benches will remain for eating on site because there will be a walk up window

Hours of Operation
Monday – Saturday 6am – 10/11PM (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I don’t know who you all were, but thank you. I fell off my bike on H St this morning after [Sunday] getting a tire caught in the tracks and was totally disoriented and scared when all I could see was blood dripping from my head. Thank you in particular to the man who put pressure on the cut until the ambulance arrived. I’m so impressed by and thankful for my DC community that doesn’t hesitate to jump in and help. I wish I could repay you all.

sandwiches

From an email:

Come help Old City CrossFit on HSt NE DC with it’s 1st ever AMSAP Challenge this Veteran’s Day, Nov 11th at 10:30 am! “What’s an AMSAP?” Great question! It means “As Many Sandwiches As Possible.” And we’ll be making these sandwiches in support of the Central Union Mission in DC.

Central Union Mission is a homeless shelter that provides services to people in need, including delicious meals. That’s where Old City and the AMSAP Challenge comes in. Old City is hosting an event on Veteran’s Day (Friday, Nov 11th) from 10:30 – 12. We have a goal of making 200 sandwiches (or more!?), and we need you to help us reach that goal!

There are two ways you can help:

1) Volunteer to provide supplies. Sign up here: http://bit.ly/2dZUD24

2) Volunteer your time! Just show up at the gym on Nov 11th at 10:30 and get ready to get your sandwich on!

The placard says:

“New restaurant with 50 seats and a Total Occupancy Load of 50. Serving Mexican cuisine. Restaurant also has a Sidewalk Café with 48 seats.”

This is the former former ‘The Spot’ deli (and Grace Deli before that) – what’s the early word on Taqueria Rosticeria Fresca who opened up back in January?

Their Facebook page says:

“Original taste of Mexico with an addition of Peruvian style chicken”

Check out their menu after the jump. (more…)

I love when the sidewalks open back up. Also reveals where the new Wydown Coffee Bar will be located at 600 H Street, NE, right across the street from the new Starbucks. The liquor license placard says:

If you passed out or moved away in 2012 and woke up today, you’d find the whole scene pretty surreal:

tickets

“Dear PoPville,

I live a block off of H Street NE. The city has been towing cars either blocking street car tracks or parked in street sweeping spots to our block and leaving them here. And it seems people can’t find their cars because weeks later and they are still here! Also, a few blocks away at my kids’ school, there is a car that was towed from one tow zone to another and now has a stack of tickets on the windshield. I’m certain that these people aren’t intentionally leaving their cars for weeks at a time… including with an open window in the rain. I’m pretty sure this happened to a couple in the spring. They reported the car stolen only to find out it was towed.”
