“Lighthouse Yoga Center is moving to 4203 9th Street NW in mid-April. This is the little yellow building next to the Petworth post office, just north of Upshur. The building is in great shape and it’s going to make a beautiful yoga studio! We’re just waiting for the current tenant to move out, and we plan to open at the new location on April 22. We’ll keep running classes at the current site until then, and we expect minimal disruption to our business from the move.”
A reader sends word around 2:45pm Saturday afternoon:
“Ton of cops at 3rd and upshur. Looking for shell casings.”
“UPDATE – After original Officers had responded to the area of 2nd and Upshur an individual called MPD and stated he had been shot at while sitting in a vehicle. Fortunately this individual was not hit by any of the bullets, the vehicle was though. If anyone has additional information about this incident please call 202-727-9099.”
A small mystery in the Petworth metro. In the tunnel under Georgia Ave that is part of the entrance to the Petworth Metro Station there is always water covering a large portion of the floor. At first, I thought its was due to people tracking in snow, but over time its become apparent that its some sort of perpetual leak. The floor tiles get pretty slick when wet. Any information on plans for repair?”

“I just got this text from one of my neighbors on the 600 block of Rock Creek Chuch Rd. It happened in the alley behind their house (off of Quebec Pl) “Something disturbing happened at my house sat morn around 1am. Someone tried to remove the security door from my basement back entrance. They removed most of the screws, and the door was hanging off the house. We were all home. I guess they would have kicked the back door down. The vibration and The dog alerted me, and I started turning on lights. The motion sensor light didn’t discourage them and it was on while they were working. Had to let someone know.” Just a heads up to the Park View and Petworth neighborhoods.”
“We [Three Little Pigs] get a lot of customers asking us for butchery classes and fresh cuts of meat. So, we just decided to offer both – at the same time! The idea is simple, you, and if you’d like, a couple of pals pitch in to buy half or a whole pig from TLP (the pigs come from Polyface Farm). You come in on Saturday (and if need be Sunday) and we will teach you how to butcher your pig any way you’d like. From there, we portion everything out and you take your custom meats home for yourself or to share among your friends and family. It’s going to be awesome! Here is the breakdown:
1/2 pig weighs approx 110lbs. The price per pound is $3.75
Lecture and instructional – Half Pig: $375 -or- Whole Pig: $500
The service takes place on weekends only (scheduling at least two weeks ahead)
Each customer can bring two guests. Additional guests can attend for an additional $100 per person
We will be selling cutting boards, butcher knives, and aprons can be purchased at a discounted rate
TLP will provide lunch and kitchen tour to all guests”
Last we checked back in December we knew good things were coming to Lyman’s Tavern coming to the former laundromat space next to Red Derby. Well I got to take a peek over the weekend and holy cow this place is looking sweet. I haven’t been this excited about a new bar since, well, Red Derby opened. I’m happy to say it’s looking like Lyman’s will be a worthy neighbor to the Derby. This is another real deal non pretentious neighborhood bar. The space is dominated by a huge wooden bar. In the back there will be a little stage for music and three pinball machines. In the way way back is a small kitchen. And the best news – they open in March. Stay tuned for an exact date.
They didn’t want me to spoil the surprise by posting photos but here’s a little tease showing the corner of that sweet bar:
