My car was involved in a hit and run this weekend (Friday night) when it was parked in front of my house. Luckily a Good Samaritan witnessed the incident and left me a note with the make, model, color, and 2 variations of spelling of the license plate. I’ve filed a police report and notified my insurance; however, it would be helpful if I had the name and contact info for the Good Samaritan / witness in order to strengthen my claim against the person who hit my car.
The incident occurred in the 1200 block of I St NE, and the car that hit mine was a Cadillac. Can you contact me at finjess06(at)yahoo[dot]com if you witnessed this? Thanks!”
“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has announced that it has approached the final stage of construction of the H Street/Benning Road Streetcar line—and that it anticipates testing of streetcars in the corridor will begin in December. Citizens can expect to see streetcars along H Street/Benning Road during this process, although passenger service will not begin until 2014.
The streetcar system safety work in December will require the integration of power, communications, and traffic signal controls to ensure that all components are safe and working properly. The streetcar system work must perform under several traffic scenarios, and emergency drills will be performed before safety certification can begin by local and federal safety officials. (more…)
“The hipster sushi/dance party H Street spot Sticky Rice has been severely punished by the Alcohol Beverage Control Board for ejecting two Alcohol Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) investigators last New Year’s Eve. The bar cannot serve booze for a 15 day period next month and must pay a $4,000 fine; another 10 days of the liquor license suspension will be served if any violations occur in the next year.”

The general consensus of the commenters on the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post for this property was that it was priced well. Towards the end of the discussion, there is even a suggestion that it was expected to sell quite a bit over asking. In the end, the net price (factoring in the seller closing subsidy) is actually $2000. below asking. (more…)

It appears that the Pho Bar and Grill on H Street, NE (1360 H Street) is closed. Sign says for renovation and training, but I think it’s been dark for at least a week now. We’ll see if they return. Not the best food but adequate. Hopefully it will return much better! H Street needs some good Pho!”
I feel like that sign has been up for at least a couple of months! We judged them back in Dec. 2012 (they opened in Oct. 2011.) Their facebook page hasn’t been updated since July and a call to the restaurant goes to a full mailbox. Updates when they become available.
