1320 H Street, NE

Very neat detail about Sally’s Middle Name from the Washington City Paper:

“At their new H Street NE restaurant, Sally’s Middle Name, owners Sam and Aphra Adkins have decided to forgo the traditional gratuity system. Instead, an 18 percent “service charge” will be automatically added to every check. That money will be split evenly between front and back of the house employees.”


A reader writes:

“My wife found this cute little what I think it is a Yorkshire Terrier (or maybe a Tea Cup Terrier?) around noon today on 11th St. NE between H and I streets. We are going to bring him to our vet later today to see if he has a chip, but I was hoping you could post this pic on popville and see if anyone was looking for him. They can contact me directly at . He has a collar on, but there are no tags. I’m sure someone is missing him, or will be.”

UPDATE: Back home!

816 8th Street Northeast

This unit is located at 816 8th Street, Northeast. The listing says:

“It’s all been rehearsal up till now, a role-reversal put condos up front, houses back seat, not competing, but soundly beating surrounding homes without eating my wallet or forfeiting space to get a place right off H is for hold on to your breath lest the western view from a penthouse deck knocks you-thunderstruck by top-tier builder, Connell & Schmidt. There’s a difference. Look. Hear it searing?”

Ed. Note: Yes, it’s a Thomas Faison listing.

A reader reports:

“You posted a stolen package video that was captured by my home surveillance cam. I received notice today from the U.S. Attorney’s Office that a man was charged with second degree theft and is due in court in early June. DC MPD Officer Naples followed this through and was fantastic — big props and thanks to him!”

Sadly though another one caught on film and tweeted to us today:

“man steals package from our porch on 9th st between k and i st NE. It may be the same man who struck here.”
