“Dear PoPville,

Any chance you or readers any updates on what is going on with Conscious Cafe on H St?
I live nearby and have been hoping it would open for months. Wondering if the project is defunct and will taunt me with the welcoming facade until someone else buys the property, or if it might actually open?”

and another reader simply asks: “Is Bab Korean ever going to open?”

All good questions. Seems like a lot of money was spent on renovations so it’s bizarre both projects seem stalled for so long. Anyone hear anything?

A reader reports:

“Looks like the 7-11 in the H Street strip mall is getting set up in its new location. On the corner of 8th and H across from the Rite Aid. Much more prominent location for them.”

Ed. Note: To those who may feel the urge to ask, “why are you posting this – this is not news” etc., all I can tell you is what my parents told me when I was coming up “Daniel, the world does not revolve around your every impulse and desire.”

“Once inside you will quickly find this is no normal headshop. We have something for everyone here.
