From the Columbia Heights Listserv:

“Our neighbor, Howard University, is having its commencement/graduation this Saturday, May 10. Sean Combs (a.k.a. P. Diddy/Puff Daddy) is the commencement speaker. Expect heavy traffic in the lower Georgia Avenue corridor and surrounding streets.”

From Howard University:

“Entrepreneur and philanthropist Sean Combs will deliver the 146th Commencement address at Howard University on Saturday, May 10, 2014, Interim President Wayne A.I. Frederick announced today.

The University will award degrees to more than 1800 students. Combs was a student at Howard University in the late 1980s. He will receive an honorary doctorate in humanities at the convocation.

“In selecting the individuals who will be awarded honorary degrees, Howard University continues the tradition of identifying leaders whose work has clearly contributed to the advancement of their fields and the world,” Frederick said. “We are honored to have Mr. Combs serve as our speaker. He sat in classrooms where our students sit, walked ‘The Yard,’ and like many students, his entrepreneurial spirit was sparked at Howard. We know he will inspire our class to work hard and to always strive for excellence.”

Five individuals will receive honorary degrees during the ceremony. They represent an exemplary group of pioneers and trailblazers in the fields of journalism, the arts, business and medicine. This year’s honorees are: Wolf Blitzer, Clive Callender, Benny Golson and Indra K. Nooyi.”

From MPD:

“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch have announced that an arrest has been made in the homicide which occurred in the 2700 block of Georgia Avenue, NW.

On Saturday, January 19, 2013, at approximately 2:28 am, units from the Third District responded to the 2700 block of Georgia Avenue, NW for the report of a shooting.

DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services transported the victim to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.

The decedent is identified as 44-year-old Tracy McFadden of Northeast, Washington, DC.

“Dear PoPville,

I’m looking at a rowhouse to rent at Sherman and Irving. It’s a crazy good deal so I don’t want to miss the opportunity. I don’t live in the neighborhood now but love it and go out with friends who are there regularly.

My question is this: the bedroom faces Sherman and I’m a super light sleeper. Do you think I’ll be kept up all night with noise from Sherman?

Any insights would be super helpful. Thank you so much!!”

Thanks to a reader for sending word:

“Just a heads up that a new restaurant is going in about 3 doors down from Bravo Lounge. I don’t know anything more about it. That will make 3 new businesses on a block that had only recently been totally dead.”

Nice! Looking forward to learning more details. The second restaurant the reader references is Tipsy Peacock, which incidentally just applied for a liquor license which reveals a few more details:

“The establishment will serve coffee, tea, small dishes and alcoholic beverages. Maximum number of seats is 50, total load 65, Summer Garden seats 15. Establishment will offer entertainment from DJs and musicians. The estimated dimension of the dance floor will be 14ft x 10 ft on the ground floor.”

Tipsy Peacock is located right next door to Bravo Bar, which incidentally just got new signage:

Also walking further north on Georgia it looks a new Mexican restaurant called Ana’s is coming soon:

A couple of weeks ago I posted about Tipsy Peacock coming right next door to Bravo Lounge at the corner of Georgia and Columbia Rd, NW. They’ve now launched a facebook page:

Georgia Avenue’s first wine bar featuring wines from around the world along with international light fare.”

Via email the owner tells me that they are in the “very early stages” and “are excited to be opening on Georgia Avenue and look forward to having the community involved!”

Awesome.

Another potentially awesome find from ‏@WashBizNeibs:

“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.

Looks like Koffee’s Lounge located above the Salt and Pepper Grill Indian and Pakistani restaurant is going to become Peace Lounge. A recent liquor license application says:

“Neighborhood lounge offering Ethio-American style cuisine with a seating capacity for 86 patrons. Total occupancy load of 99. The following endorsements summer garden with 13 seats and entertainment to include dancing and cover charge featuring occasional acoustics jazz band, karaoke, open mic and DJ.”

Updates when they get closer to opening.
