“Dear PoPville,

I was the unfortunate victim of a car break in that happened in front of my house between 10:30 and 11:30 this morning, in broad daylight. They busted my car window and made off with a laptop bag with my computer and passport. The car was parked on a quiet sleepy street up in Takoma, right next to the Takoma Rec Center. I know it is never smart to leave anything in the car, but I was hoping we might get something back.

If anyone comes across a black bag, Macbook Air or a US and/or UK passport, could they could contact me at [email protected] or turn it to the DC Police 4th District.”

A reader reports:

“I just walked by this – what looks like a new place opening – and wonder if you or your PoPVille readers know anything about it. The location is Takoma, DC on 4th Street NW between Cedar and Butternut. I don’t usually take more than a passing glance at new openings, but I used to be a tutor in the DC Public School System so this sign really caught my eye. I would love to know more about this place.”

Anyone familiar with them? There is a Tutoring Cafe affiliated with the Eddie Nash Foundation:

From the fine folks at 3 Stars Brewing Company (6400 Chillum Place, NW):

“Heads up!!!! In case you haven’t seen all the coverage on social media, we are releasing our new Double IPA, #ultrafresh, today at the brewery. This beer is brewed with Glaxy, Topaz and Columbus hops and comes in at a nicee 8.3% abv. Big, juicy hop notes fill your nose and dance across your tongue before finishing with a well balanced bitterness. Doors will open at 4pm and there is a two 4-pack limit per customer. This is a very limited release and will likely not make it out into the market, so get yours while you can.
