In March we noted Howard China was getting a long needed facelift. The Mayor’s Office on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs shares the great result:
“After months of collaboration, congratulations to Howard China for successfully completing @DCDHCD Façade Program!”
I’m trying to find some info on an accident victim.
There was a crash in front of my house late Wednesday/early Thursday, around 1am. A grey/silver moped rear-ended a car stopped at a red light at Georgia and Irving NW, across from Bruce Monroe park. He must have been going pretty fast. I heard the accident from my front bedroom and ran outside. A woman was already calling 911, but no one was assisting the man. I ran into the 77 shop on the corner there and asked for a clean cloth. They didn’t have one, supposedly. Maybe they didn’t understand what I was asking. They only offered me paper towels. I then ran back into my house to get a clean bath towel. The rider was laying in the middle of the street, bleeding profusely from his head. His helmet had come off on impact with the rear window of the car. I applied consistent pressure to the wound with the clean towel for about 10-15 minutes until the ambulance arrived. I kept talking to the man, trying to keep his eyes open, and keep him awake. He asked me repeatedly what my name was, and I told him. I couldn’t seem to get him to tell me his name, where he was going, or where he was coming from. He murmured at some point that his mother was in Colombia. His phone was dead (or possibly broken from impact) and because he landed on his head (twice) he may have had spinal trauma, so I didn’t want to move him to try and find his wallet.
When they took him away he held on to my hand and wouldn’t let go until the paramedics forced him to. They wouldn’t let me go with him because I wasn’t a friend or relation. And I don’t know which hospital they took him to. (more…)

We’ve had a lot of random passersby and almost as many FB messages asking when we’re really, actually going to finally open… we’re shooting for late May (June 1st at the absolute latest). See you then!
This must be the slowest opening in the history of DC bars.”

A reader reports Saturday night:
“Massive police presence in the 2900 block of Georgia Ave, NW. Hopefully they will finally shutdown the obvious prostitution and drug selling they have there every weekend.”
