Thanks to a reader for passing on a letter sent to nearby residents from the Wunder Garten team:

“We are working with the building management to schedule a meeting to tell you more about the beer garden (Wunder Garten) we are planning to open on the vacant lot next to your building. While we are confirming the details of this meeting with the ANC and the building management, we wanted to share some information about the project with you upfront.

Over the last year, we have been working closely with the NoMa BID on creating an attractive outdoor space where neighbors and friends can meet, socialize, and enjoy food and drinks in an environment similar to popular German beer gardens—something that is currently missing in NoMa.Our plan is to place benches and tables on the rear of the lot and use decorative landscaping to create a causal and inviting atmosphere.

We will serve German and local beer, and soft drinks (no liquor will be served). A rotating lineup of DC’s most popular food trucks will provide food for our guests.

REI, NoMa’s new retail resident, will also have a presence at the beer garden, providing fun classes on recreational and outdoor actives such as bike repair workshops, camping and more.

We will work with the NoMa BID to organize a handful community events throughout the summer during which we may occasionally have live music. There will not be a cover charge or live music during regular operations.

We are looking forward to meeting you and sharing our vision with you. Just like you, we want a thriving, fun, safe and quite neighborhood. Wunder Garten is going to be a communal space that we all can be excited about. At the meeting we will give you more details about our plans to achieve this goal.”

“Dear PoPville,

It went up last weekend. While the sign is technically on a support pole of the same building, the entrance to this Marriott is a good 50 yards away, and the tiny arrow at the bottom doesn’t remotely help anyone find the place. It mainly serves as a big Christmasy dick move to commuters, as far as I can tell. It’s literally in the way for people coming down the stairs from the MBT, and it’s yet another layer of visual obstruction in front of the single incoming train board at that entrance. I think I’m just bummed out that it dwarfs the actual Metro pole. Thought I’d share to commiserate, and ask if anyone else has examples of garish, shameless advertising at Metro entrances. (NY Ave North Entrance)”

Think metro got paid for this?

From MPD:

“On March 26, 2015, at around 11:55PM, a citizen reported while sitting in his parked vehicle in the 600 block of M Street, Northeast, a passenger in his vehicle brandished a firearm and ordered him out of his vehicle. The citizen complied, and the subject fled in the vehicle eastbound on Florida Avenue from 6th Street, Northeast.

On today’s date at around 2:50AM, members of the Fifth District recovered the vehicle in the 3600 block of 18th Street, Northeast.

There were no injuries associated with this offense.

The case is currently being investigated by the First District Investigative Unit.”
