Well this was worth the wait! Huge score for Park View and Georgia Ave. Thankfully the warm weather has been sticking around too. The owners tell me that Grand Opening is Saturday Nov. 12th at 6pm with the band Justin Trawick & The Common Good.

Thanks to all who sent emails about the soft opening last night. I’m told there will be a few more soft opening before Nov. 12th so those that live nearby may have a chance to see it person soon. It looks huge and when the colder weather finally does arrive, check out how sweet the inside turned out (also with a huge bar, dart boards and tvs):

“Dear PoPville,

Hoping someone might have some helpful info about two loose dogs in Park View! Around noon today, I was walking my dog in the 3500 block of Park Pl. NW (right across from the Soldiers’ Home) when we saw two medium-sized dogs running towards us, off-leash and no walker in sight, My dog (a small terrier) is not friendly with other dogs, so I tried to get her out of their line of vision, but they ran for us and started aggressively chasing, snarling, and biting her. A contractor at a nearby house ran out to help break up the fight and corralled the two dogs off to the side–not sure what happened to them after we walked away. My dog is shaken up and has a few cuts/bite marks, so if anybody has any information about these dogs, particularly regarding vaccines, I would be so, so grateful! I’m really not interested in anything other than making sure all the dogs are healthy. I can be reached by email at woodhouse.eg(at)gmail.com.

Descriptions of the dogs are as follows:

Medium-sized dog, white with grey/brown spots, possible pit mix, had a small cut on its nose. More aggressive of the two dogs.
Medium-sized grey/brown short-hair mix, pointy ears.”


“Dear PoPville,

Last evening my husband went outside to check the mail and noticed a jeep driving down Irving Street [600 block] very quickly. It’s a residential street, so it stood out as odd. Then all of a sudden, this woman runs up to him and says that it’s her jeep and she needs to borrow a phone to call the police.

She is an instacart delivery woman and had left her brand new jeep running with her keys and phone inside (as well as other deliveries) while she was dropping off an order to our neighbors. Some passerby must have taken advantage of the situation and jumped into her jeep and drove off. The cops arrived quickly (thank goodness) and took a report. We feel really awful for her and we are hopeful she gets her car back without too much hassle. It’s also unsettling since this happened on the street we live on–only a few doors down.

Jumping out of the car to run inside while it’s running/unlocked is something we have all done at some point. It’s a good reminder for all of us to be more careful.
