I found a Schwinn Mountain bike in Petworth, around about a block from the metro discarded in an alley. I left it for awhile thinking maybe someone just stopped for a bit but it was moved to the sidewalk and placed upside down. Pretty sure it was stolen or maybe taken for a joy ride. The tires are flat and I didn’t see if it rode well (gears working, etc) but the frame is in good condition.”

From Little Coco’s:

“Monday is a big day at Coco’s! We’re finally opening for coffee and homemade pastries – cream puffs, donuts, muffins, scones – starting at 8am. Our espresso is from La Colombe and drip coffee from Ceremony.

Lunch will start at 11:30 and include pizza, sandwiches (my favorite is the P.L.T. – Porchetta, Lettuce and Tomato on homemade Focaccia), and salads.

Then, starting at 4pm it’s Pizza night. Just $9 for any pie and $30 for a pizza and a pitcher! Every Monday.

Thanks to Rachel for a photo of the new signage going up at Red Derby. Another amazing bar approaching a decade. File the owners squarely in the good people column:

“It’s that time of year for our annual Halloween fundraiser for the kiddos at DASH [District Alliance for Safe Housing]:

Sunday Oct 9th from 3pm – 8pm, we’ll be hosting a Derby Oktoberfest in support of DASH … we’ll be grilling up brats on the barbecue ($3 per), as well as toasting up pretzels ($1); with 100% of proceeds going to our Halloween DASH drive. Also, anyone who brings in a pound of candy or a costume (there are 63 kiddos this year) will receive happy hour prices all night long. In addition, there will be a gaggle of German beer specials … and, of course, the ability to make any beer on our 100+ list a German combo by adding a shot of Jagermeister. (For those who prefer wine… we’ll be offering our Clean Slate Riesling for $15 a bottle.)

At 9pm, we’ll be showing the second Presidential Debate on the Derby’s Big Screen. We’ll be fashioning a game of Bingo (whereby the proceeds from bingo cards also will go to DASH).”

A reader reports:

“Looked like a bike-car collision on southbound Kansas Avenue at the Kansas-Georgia ave intersection (there are bike lanes on Kansas in that area). Couldn’t see how bad the situation was, several police cars and a fire truck on the scene around 9AM. Not sure what happened in this situation, but from experience:

1) cars coming from Varnum St (either crossing Kansas to continue on Varnum, or turning onto Georgia) when cars on Kansas are bumper-to-bumper fail to notice that the bike lanes keep moving, and

2) cars heading south on Kansas and planning to make a right onto Upshur after they cross Georgia will often encroach onto the bike lanes in anticipation of the upcoming turn.”

Thanks to all who emailed and tweeted us. The owner of Stella’s tells me they are shooting for an October 29th grand opening and continue to operate the food truck.

“We use high quality ingredients and offer unique twists on the nostalgic treat. After spending many years in the culinary and high end catering world, I’ve dedicated Stella*s PopKern to producing the most delicious and creative popcorn around (truly!). Our ever evolving menu ranges from traditional mainstays such as Clarified Butter with Brazilian Sea Salt to exotic blends like Spicy Cardamom Sprinkled with Ginger Sea Salt.”

Word is finally out on who’s taking over the Cappy’s Crabs space on Upshur – City Paper reports:

“While Japan will be the leading culinary influence for both the food and drinks, the restaurant is very much wrapped up in the personalities and viewpoints of its young, first-time restaurateurs. [Carlie Steiner and Kevin Tien] That’s why they’re dubbing it “New Japanese” cuisine because Tien, the executive chef, will punch up traditional Japanese preparations with Latin, Southeast Asian, and Korean flavors.

Himitsu will start by serving dinner Tuesdays-Saturdays from 5 p.m. to close. They will not take reservations. Instead, seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Mid-October is the projected opening date.”

On Facebook they shared on Saturday:

“Gettin’ lit @himitsudc // see you in a few weeks!!”

Stay tuned for an exact opening date.
