“Dear PoPville,

I feel like the D.C. government made the announcement so bureaucratic-sounding that it’s hard to figure out what it means. Apparently the “surplus” part is the D.C. government deciding it no longer needs a particular piece of property, and then the “disposition” part determines what then happens to the property.

This meeting is about the surplus side of it, but I imagine lots of concerned folks will also be commenting on the proposed disposition (i.e., having the site serve as the replacement for Park Morton).

The District will conduct a public meeting to receive public comments on the proposed surplus of District property located at 3012 Georgia Avenue, NW (SQUARE: 2890, LOT: 0849). Please note that written comments will be accepted until Wednesday, March 23, 2016.

Below, please find the date, time and location of the meeting:

Date: Monday, March 21, 2016
Time: 6:30pm-8:30pm
Location: Bruce Monroe Elementary @ Park View, 3560 Warder Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

You posted about this place, but I have to give it a plug and also think your readers might be able to help the owner, who is a lovely woman. First, the food. It was delicious and felt very authentic. It’s a very cool place inside as well. I highly recommend people check it out. It hasn’t got a the lime light that other new places get, but the owner clearly takes pride in her work and that is reflected in her food.

Second, she just got her liquor license. And her 2015 license expires at the end of March. That means she paid for a year ( a lot of money), but will only be able to use it for a month. She has to pay new fees at the end of the month. So she paid a full year and will get a month. I wonder if any of your readers could help her?”

From an email:

“I recently opened a maker’s studio in Park View called The Lemon Bowl where people can take all sorts of creative workshops and expert-led DIYs.

We’re located in the space on Georgia Avenue that used to house the old Lemon Bowl Deli run by Mr. Larry. We loved the name so much we decided to keep it!

The Lemon Bowl was founded by three local makers: illustrator Kathryn Zaremba, fiber artist Linny Giffin and myself, Holley Simmons, a local terrarium teacher and the owner of Sill Life.

The three of us use the space to practice our individual crafts (I use it primarily to spill dirt everywhere, haha) and we also make the space available to the public for classes and events.

Coming up we have some really amazing programming:

A nude drawing class with food from the local chef behind PornBurger

A macrame weaving class led by Portland mega-star Emily Katz
An advanced embroidery class from a local artist Renata Ocamp
Block printing with Kathryn
Pom pom garlands with Linny
And of course terrarium classes
And seriously so much more. Our calendar has the most up-to-date line up of classes.”
