A reader reports:

“A house caught fire this morning on 14th and A SE. At least 3 fire engines and 2 ambulances were at the scene. Smoke was billowing out of both the front and back of the house. Several firefighters climbed on top of the house and smashed holes into the roof.

As far as I know, no one was injured, but that is not confirmed.”

“Dear PoPville,

There’s a train horn that’s been going on since at least 11:55, but that’s just when I looked at the clock. I’m sure that the horn doesn’t exist solely to annoy me, so I was wondering if you or your readers had any idea why it’s been going on for 20+ minutes. I live in Hill East and can hear it quite clearly, so I feel bad for anyone that lives closer to the tracks or Union Station.”

“Let this sentence serve as a “pinch to the arm” of sorts to let you know that the above artwork is indeed real. We know it’s 7am; you’re NOT dreaming! In celebration of Foo Fighters’ 20th Anniversary, Dave and the boys are bringing together so many of the groundbreaking American acts featured in their HBO docuseries, Sonic Highways, for one big 4th of July jamboree at RFK Stadium. Beyond the absolutely insane lineup, the all-day extravaganza features fireworks, a motorcycle rally, BBQ, and so much more. Long story short: You spend your 4th of July with the Foos and friends… you have your life rocked by maybe the best concert you’ll ever attend.

1412 Pennsylvania Ave, SE

In other beer news – back in March we heard 1412 Hops & Vine would be opening in the old Indigo Frenzy boutique space by Trusty’s and Wisdom. Well they’ve since been renamed Pipetown Traders and are now open. Their twitter, @pipetowntraders, says:

“Local wine and craft beer store, with a selection that will make your head spin. We’re glass half empty kind of people, come see why…”

Anyone check out the selection?
