“An LLC called “Tipsy Peacock” was registered on Valentine’s Day to 2915 Georgia Ave. NW. My curiosity is piqued.”
Though no info is available – Tipsy Peacock does have a website set up:
Tipsy Peacock will be located right next to Bravo Lounge at the corner of Georgia and Columbia Rd, NW. The property was a Good Deal or Not? post back in 2008. At that time the asking price was $549,999. More info on this phenomenally named new spot when it becomes available.

“On Today’s date [Sat, Feb. 1], at approximately 15:15 hours members of your Third District VICE Unit along with the Districts Detectives arrested a subject in the 700 block of Fairmont Street , NW who was wanted in connection with a recent 3D “Armed Robbery”. The subject was taken into custody without incident and was found to be carrying a firearm at the time of his arrest.
A Search Warrant was subsequently conducted on a residence for which the defendant was connected, within the same area. This warrant yielded the recovery of several additional weapons and other critical evidence.
It should be noted: this apprehension was attained thorough the hard work of the 3rd District Detectives who worked this case, as well as assistance gained from the public. For that, we at the MPD are thankful.”
“At approximately 2:00 AM. Third District officers confronted a suspect who had assaulted a female victim in the 700 block of Fairmont Street, Northwest
During the confrontation with the officers, the suspect displayed a handgun and pointed it at the officers.
The officers quickly grabbed the suspect and disarmed him.
As a result of the quick action of the officers the suspect was taken in to custody and the handgun was recovered.
This is the 5th handgun and 3rd BB gun that your officers recovered over the past 2 days!”

“On this day of blizzard, I must inform you of the death of two persons in an apt at 710 Girard NW. The bodies of the male and female (both about 30 years of age) were found late last night.
Neither of them lived in the apartment, and both had addresses outside of Ward 1.
MPD is suggesting it may be drug related, and there may also be a suggestion of an execution style killing. None of that is confirmed.
The male victim has been identified but the name is not being released because the family has not been notified.
More as information is provided.”
Update from MPD:
“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a double homicide which occurred in the 700 block of Girard Street, Northwest.
On Monday, January 20, 2014, at approximately 10:56 pm, police officers from the Third District responded to a call for the report of an unconscious person. Upon arrival, they located an adult male and an adult female suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services personnel responded to the scene. Neither victim exhibited any signs consistent with life. Both decedents were transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner where an autopsy will be performed.
The male victim has been identified as 36-year-old Oluremi Thomas of Northwest, DC. The female victim has been identified as 24-year-old Keyonna Proctor of Southeast, DC.”
After wandering in, this place is better on the inside than outside. Happy hour specials (until 9pm) are amazing at buy one get one and even a shot, beer and hot dog for $6. While they are still updating on the exterior, the interior is well renovated with original tin ceilings and actually nice bathrooms.
It would be great for a place like this to do well in this neighborhood.
“On today’s date [Friday], at approximately 6:45 pm two armed suspects robbed an adult victim in the 2100 block of Georgia Avenue, NW. for his shoes, coat, money and phone. Officers from the 3rd District’s VICE Unit had been in the area and witnessed the crime in progress. The VICE Officers took immediate action and apprehended both suspects and recovered a weapon. The victim was unharmed.”

Before getting into today’s Good Deal or Not-Revisited (GDoN-R), I wanted to revisit the neighborhood of last week’s GDoN-R, which you can see here. There was another settlement on Florida Avenue NE close by this past week. It was a larger property that settled at net $850,000. You can see the original Good Deal or Not (GDoN) post for this property here.
Now, back to your regularly scheduled GDoN-R, which is across the city on Georgia Ave NW near Howard University. There are twenty two units in this new construction (new vs. coverted/renovated existing building) building that went up in 2011. Building amenities include an elevator, bike storage, and a common roof deck. This is a top floor unit, which is considered a premium, especially with an elevator. Commenters to the original GDoN post debated the proximity to Metro. Google says it’s a twelve minute walk to either Petworth or Columbia Heights Metro.
