The folks at Three Little Pigs tell me the grant will allow them to offer more classes, more fresh cuts of meat, and more variety of local dairy. Awesome. For folks not familiar with Three Little Pigs, you’re missing out – just check out today’s lunch options:
MPD reports that they are investigating a double shooting involving two family members (approx 6 AM). Early reports indicate that one shot the other and then himself. Awaiting confirmation of the condition of each. At this time, I have no further information. I will update you soonest.
Update from MPD at 8:40am:
Around 6am, units received a call for a shooting in the 500 blk of Quincy St NW. Two adult victims were located suffering from apparent gunshot wounds at a residence. One male was transported to an area hospital for treatment. The second male is deceased.
Detectives from the Homicide Branch are on the scene investigating. The 500 blk of Quincy is temporarily closed to vehicular traffic.
Originally opened in Aug. 2010 Ras Restaurant and Lounge has been closed since Dec. 2012. Looks like they’ll be reopening soon, though after peeking in the window, it looks like they’ll be some cosmetic renovations first. Stay tuned.
I’ve been getting this question pretty regularly (most recently on twitter @PoPville) ever since we learned about it back in Oct. 2012:
“Tavern serving bar food with a seating capacity of 70. Occupancy load of 70. Requesting a summer garden with a seating capacity of 20 and entertainment endorsement featuring live music.”
Last month New Columbia Heights reported an ANC Rep heard the owners were shooting for a July opening date. Based on the photo above taken last weekend and word from a reader who peeked in the window, well, I’d guess the likelihood of them opening in July is, uh, let’s say not very likely. Unless they meant July 2014. Anyway, I’m just glad it’s apparently still happening. Though I’ll feel a little more confident when renovations actually start. Stay tuned.

El Limeno was located at 201 Upshur St, NW across the street from Hitching Post and closed in Sept. 2010 after some, uh, legal troubles… It had been vacant ever since. Thanks to @JustinTLogan for sending word that a sign has been posted for La Joya Steakhouse Restaurant. Could be awesome! Updates when they get closer to opening.
This morning at approximately 12:00 AM, 4D units received 911 calls for the sounds of gunshots around the area of 8th and Buchanan Street, Northwest. Shortly thereafter, 4D units located an adult male suffering from non life-threatening gunshot wounds at Kansas and Allison Street, Northwest. The individual was transported to a local area hospital for treatment.
Ed. Note: For all who inquired about a helicopter in Petworth and Brightwood – this was the reason.
