From a press release:

“On Friday, June 5, 2015, Union Market – the vibrant district in Northeast DC – will bring back its wildly popular drive-in movie series. Best known for honoring themed movies, the June 2015 series will “flashback” every Friday, rolling out films that salute the ‘80s and ‘90s decades. The June line-up will feature blockbuster hits Jurassic Park, Pretty Woman, Space Jam and Beverly Hills Cop. Union Market’s June Drive-In Series is supported by Shinola, the makers of handcrafted, American-built watches, bicycles, leather goods and journals.

The classic American pastime will take place in Union Market’s spacious parking lot, projected on the two-story front wall. The fare is $10 per car, or free in the picnic area for walk-ups & bikers on a first come, first serve basis. Car passes can be purchased here, with a portion of ticket sales benefitting the Wheatley Education Campus, located in DC’s nearby Trinidad neighborhood. Patrons can either tune in through a car radio or listen over the market’s loud speakers.

The DC Rollergirls will return to this year’s series, on-hand delivering speedy snacks and drinks on wheels. All 40 Union Market vendors will remain open for service, and cinephiles craving a salty-sweet mashup will enjoy complimentary Shinola Cola and popcorn throughout the evening.

Last month we learned that Masseria was coming to the old school part of Union Market. Lots more info from a press release:

“It is with great excitement that we share the news on Stefanelli’s first solo venture, Masseria, opening early Summer 2015 in the Union Market district of Washington, DC.

Masseria, a new restaurant and a first for chef Nick Stefanelli, will be a celebration of big, harmonious flavors and the finest Italian cooking that shaped his palate as a child. The restaurant’s name carries a heartfelt meaning, defining the charming agricultural farm of the Puglia region, which is heavily rooted in Stefanelli’s heritage. All of which means that running his own restaurant will now be more of a lifestyle than a profession, by taking the pretense out of fine dining and keeping it to just a whisper through its service. Entering into a handsome courtyard with relaxed seating, Masseria, an exclusive restaurant for 60 guests, will combine the raw and simple look of an Italian country estate, the industrial grit of the Union Market district, and the undeniable chic of its fashion-savvy chef-owner. Italian food that sings with touches of coastal cultures will be a fitting reward for all who dine at Masseria, because Stefanelli and his skillful team – comprised of General Manager and Advanced Sommelier David Kurka, formerly of Brabo and CityZen, and head bartender Julien-Pierre Bourgon of the acclaimed cocktail lounge PX – believe so passionately in both provenance and taste.”

“Dear PoPville,

Just wanted to make you aware of an incident tonight [Thursday]: at around 6:35 pm, I was on M street NE walking from 1st toward North Capitol when I saw a group of three teenage girls.

One of them fired a stun gun at my dog, which thankfully missed. The girl thought it was funny and was doing it as a joke, but if she had hit him, it likely would’ve killed him. I turned around and when I started to move towards the girls, they ran off.

I called the police and filed a report. To the MPD’s credit, I went outside again around 9:30, and there was a cop car parked right in front of where the incident occurred and another up the block plus two officers in my building’s lobby.

Just wanted to make sure people were aware this is a thing dog owners apparently need to worry about now. Has anyone else had problems with teens with tasers in NoMa?”
