From an email:

“On Wednesday, August 20, the Nationals will be hosting their 9th annual toy drive that falls on their U.S. Marine Corps Day during their series with the Arizona Diamondbacks. To help support the important work of the U.S. Marine Corp Reserve and the Toys for Tots Foundation, fans are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys to donate outside Center Field Gate, from 4:30 p.m. until the end of the third inning. Donated toys will be given to nonprofit organizations and hospital pediatric wards in the D.C. area during the holidays. Drives like this, that take place outside of the holiday season will not only help the foundation to become supplied, but hopefully they will inspire others to spread the word and continue to donate year-round.”

This would be awesome. The building hoped for Half Street Market is located at 49 L Street, SE near Nats Park. Their website says:

“The Half Street Market is a re-use concept for an existing GSA property in Southeast, Washington, DC that will provide the neighborhood and city with a public venue for a food market, restaurant, and flexible community space.”

“Dear PoPville,

My wife walked outside this morning and found the front window of her car smashed in. There was nothing of value in the car it doesn’t seem like anything was taken. There have been a string of these incidents in Navy Yard over the past few weeks. We did call the police who sent an officer to file a report and was told that there seems to be a pattern of these cases, though they have no leads or suspects. I hope you’ll remind your readers to make sure that no valuables are visible in their cars if parking on the street.”

From a press release:

WHAT: The third installment of DC’s monstrous beer festival is returning to Yards Park this year. Snallygaster, named for the fearsome and toothy mythical beast said to terrorize the region at the turn of the century, is a beer festival that unleashes the most sought after selection of beers and benefits Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture. This year, Snallygaster is once again setting new heights tapping no fewer than 250 unique craft beers against a backdrop of fine foods from the area’s top toques and food trucks, music, entertainment, games, family-fun and more.

Beer Director Greg Engert, the man behind the beer programs at Bluejacket, Birch & Barley, ChurchKey, GBD, Rustico and more, will of course be curating the beer list once again for Snallygaster III, and each of his nearly 250 picks will be announced as we approach the big event. Guests can expect a sea of the scarcest and most delicious ales and lagers on draft, including a growing number of breweries and brews rarely–if ever–available in the District, all sourced from from the very best local, domestic and international craft breweries. In addition, we will feature an exciting array of autumn seasonals, German style and German-inspired beers, a huge collection of cask ales, assorted barrel-aged brews, craft cans, Franconian gravity-poured/rubber-clad kegs, brand-new Bluejacket small batch releases, and even an artisanal cider garden.

The Navy Yard Oyster Company

From a press release:

“Brine, wine and stunning waterfront panoramas are coming to The Yards as the ink dries on Forest City Washington’s newest lease signing. Tenured Washington, DC restaurateurs and friends August Paro and Elias Hengst, founders of Beuchert’s Saloon and Sonoma Restaurant & Wine Bar, respectively, and Forest City Washington are excited to jointly announce the addition of The Navy Yard Oyster Company.

The new oyster and wine bar is the second joint project by Paro & Hengst and will occupy a 1,887 square foot waterfront/parkfront space on the south side of the historic Lumber Shed building at The Yards, featuring stunning views of the southeast waterfront and Yards Park. Opening is planned for Spring 2015.

The Navy Yard Oyster Company will occupy a soaring, two story, light-filled space capped by the 40-foot, exposed roof truss work of the historic original Navy Yard building. The restaurant design is inspired by the building’s ties to US Naval history, Washington, DC, and to the water itself. (more…)
