Giant-PoPville

“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday, I received a notice from Chase that my credit card had been used for some potentially fraudulent transactions; 2 were at Giant supermarket, one at MAC cosmetics, and one was for some online service; Chase had flagged the first three and then cancelled the last one at my say so.  I’ve only used the card 3 times in the last 2 weeks and one of those times was this past Sunday at the Giant on 3rd and H- similar to this story you published a few weeks back.  For the record I used cashier checkout and the card had a chip but I don’t think I put the PIN in.  The purchases were attempted at a Giant in Silver Spring (store #0354), not the 3rd and H location.

I contacted store customer service for 3rd and H and they said they weren’t aware of any issues- not even the ones from a few weeks ago:/  It could be that my card was compromised at one of the other 2 or 3 places that I used it recently, but based on the experiences of others I think something’s going on here.”

Well that’s a bummer, Washington Business Journal reports:

“Miller Walker Retail Real Estate is re-leasing the space at 1025 H St. NE. Two Boots owner Phil Hartman confirmed the company is not going to be able to open there and said they are currently “negotiating a mutually acceptable extrication” from the lease with the landlord.”

Sospeso lets us know via twitter yesterday: “We actually made it through and opening this Friday!”

Their website says:

“Start your day with expertly crafted coffee and pastries, stop in for a classic porchetta sandwich in the afternoon, or finish your day with our fresh homemade pasta, paired with an original house-infused vermouth cocktail or wine from our carefully-selected list.

Inspired by the recipes of our grandparents and great-grandparents, as well as the sun-drenched countries and seas of Southern Europe, the Eastern Mediterranean, and North Africa, we choose fresh local ingredients to prepare simple and modern artisan dishes with beautifully defined flavors.

Grilled fish served head to tail, mezes of taverns, and the highest quality olive oils and wines are Sospeso’s signature offerings. A seamless blend of original history and modern rustic design, Sospeso’s natural light-soaked industrial space evokes a refined dining experience with a unique sense of the comforts of the Mediterranean.

The name Sospeso comes from Caffè Sospeso, which literally means “suspended coffee.” This is a Neapolitan practice of someone anonymously paying for a coffee ahead for someone else in need. We look forward to carrying on the tradition.”
