From MPD just after 11pm:

“Members are investigating an assault with a dangerous weapon in the 500 b/o Allison ST NW

Two individuals were sitting on the front porch the block. Three late teens or early 20’s males approached and fired multiple shots with at least one round striking a female victim on porch in leg.

Investigation is still in its early stages and more information will be provided when available.

(At this time, I am unable to confirm the number of shots fired, the caliber of the rounds, the number of weapons used, or if whether or not this incident is gang related and if the victim was specifically targeted. I am also unable to disclose at this time if a suspect is known or not.)

Thank you for you patience as we work to apprehend those responsible.”

“Mezze Box is popping up at EatsPlace every Thursday night in July! Join us on July 7, 14, 21, and 28th from 5:00 pm through 10:00 pm for delicious, healthy and authentic Mediterranean food. Mezze Box uses fresh, whole ingredients drawn from the Mediterranean diet: whole grains and flat breads, fresh vegetables, healthy oils and fragrant spices. They prepare all their food with love and in small batches, using family recipes handed down from generation to generation.

Mezze Box chef Johnny Seikaly grew up between Lebanon and the United States, eating some of the best food in the world out of his mother’s kitchen. After starting a family of his own, he set out to preserve his family’s traditional recipes so that his kids could enjoy the same comfort foods he grew up with. He sought out the great family cooks to learn the recipes and techniques, and he is now happy to pass on the family secret to you: by eating well, one lives well and finds happiness.”

Sweet! The placard posted at Slash Run says:

“Applicant requested a new Sidewalk Café with Seating for 18 patrons.”

And take note, the sign on the door says:


I’m voting this is reasonable though as a parent of little ones I’ll admit keeping them seated at all times is often aspirational for us…
