“Dear PoPville,

The American flag (and flag pole) that hangs outside our house was stolen this weekend (likely Saturday night). The flag is especially important to us because it was flown over Afghanistan during my husband’s military service overseas. I was hoping a fellow PoPville reader happened to find a flag laying around in the Logan Circle / Shaw area near R street between 13th and 9th streets.”

Unbelievable. Anyone happen to find one laying around?

From a press release:

“BakeHouse, the bakery and coffee shop at 1407 T St NW, is now working with Ceremony Coffee Roasters of Annapolis. Niall Cooper, owner of BakeHouse, says that the partnership with Ceremony is part of an effort to expand their coffee program and take it onto the next level. “Ceremony is locally roasting some the most beautiful coffee beans on the planet,” according to Niall. “Their dedication to delicious coffee is a great match for the goods that we’re delighted to bake for our neighborhood.”

As well as using Ceremony beans for espresso, drip and immersion coffees, BakeHouse will have a variety of blended and single-origin roasts for retail.”

A liquor license placard has gone up for the space above Floors on 14th next to the new Amsterdam Falafel on 14th Street:

“Art Soiree House

Multi-Purpose Facility with Arts, Photo exhibits, Jazz and Piano music.  Light snacks will be provided such as hummus, pita bread and light hors d’oeuvres.”

Very excited to learn more about this! Back in the day this space was once planned for a spot called Local 14 and more recently was once a planned pizza restaurant by Edan Macquaid but has been vacant for years. It’s on 14th Street just south of T Street:

Last week we learned Popeyes was closing after 30 years at the corner of 14th and N St, NW. Finally got photos of the new location – opening in between The Pig and B Too in “2-3 months”:

I also was reminded that the former Popeyes had a very rare, for this part of town, drive through – so wanted to grab that for posterity:

Huge news about the former Ghana Cafe space from a Logan Circle ANC meeting last night according to Short Articles about Long Meetings:

“The prospective owners [Jamie Hess of Ivy and Coney and Steve Zarpas of Crow Bar (closed in '98 at 20th and K St, NW] told the ANC they wished to get a tavern license, but they intended to serve a full menu of “comfort food” at “average price points”.

Zarpas said he was “astounded” at the $20 hamburgers routinely found at restaurants along 14th Street. He wished to open a place with more reasonable prices.”

Updates if/as they move forward.

From a press release:

After 12 years in its current location, neighborhood staple Logan Hardware is closing its doors on P Street to relocate to 1734 14th St. NW. The official last day for the store is scheduled for August 15, 2014.

Logan Hardware opened in 2003, the first of nine Ace Hardware stores opened in DC and Baltimore by A Few Cool Hardware Stores’ owners Gina Schaefer and Marc Friedman. Schaefer admits that while opening a hardware store was never what she expected to do for a living, it quickly developed into a passion during her first few years at Logan Hardware. “Logan Circle was the best place to open our first location. It gave us our start and helped shape who we are as a company,” said Schaefer. “We hope to never leave.”

Though the storefront on P Street will be missed by staff and neighbors, the new location boasts an additional 4,000 sq. feet of retail space, an outdoor garden center, a conference room for DIY workshops, and 1,500 sq. feet of office space. “Our new space will allow us to expand some of our great departments, offer community classes and meeting space, and give us a chance to do so much more for the neighborhood we love,” Schaefer said.

The new location will celebrate the move to 14th St. with a grand opening event once the store is up and running in the new space. To RSVP for the event and receive updates on the store’s move, please email loganfans@acehardwaredc.com.”

Man allegedly seen masturbating and yelling at passersby at 11th and Rhode Island Ave, NW

“Dear PoPville,

I was walking my dog today [Sunday] and this man was standing next to the Logan Circle laundromat at 11th st NW and Rhode Island Ave NW masturbating and yelling some nightmare shit at women and kids who were walking by on the sidewalk. I saw what he was doing and took my phone out to call 911 and he stopped and started walking toward me in an aggressive way and yelling some scary stuff. I took this photo, called the police and told them. They said they sent a unit out and didn’t find him. I sent photos to them as well. I’m sending it in hopes that if a woman sees this man, they will know to stay away from him.”
