“Dear PoPville,

Had a Question I can’t find an answer to that I thought the PoPville community might be helpful with. As part of the Dunbar High School reconstruction DC rebuilt O street between 1st and 3rd streets NW. The high school and the street have been completed for months but O street continues to be blocked on both ends by construction fencing. Any idea on when the city is going to reopen the street?

An article about the reconstruction of the street is here.”

Ed. Note: I inquired with an ANC rep who said they don’t know when it will reopen either and would also like the question answered.

good humor

Gotta respect the good sense of humor!

A reader admits:

“Yesterday, I reached a new milestone and managed to find myself locked between the two front doors in the entry to my almost-purchased new home in Truxton Circle. After twenty minutes of trying to open the doors, sitting on the floor, checking work emails, wasting time on social media, my relator came to let me out.

New homeowners beware—bring all keys with you at all times!”

300 Florida Ave, NW

A few weeks ago we learned all about the plans for ANXO Cidery & Pintxos Bar. It sounds awesome. It will, however, require a tremendous renovation for this sweet property – vacant since 2000. The owners were kind enough to let me stop by and snap some photos so we can take a look back when the transformation is complete.  Work will likely begin in June and hopefully be completed by late October/early November.  The first floor dominated by a bar (25 seats) and the second floor for the restaurant (49 seats).  Oh yeah and a 2500 liter cask for fermenting cider is coming too.  There will be 42 draft lines! 17 for beer, 17 for cider 6 for wine and 2 for cocktails.  Can’t wait to see how this turns out:
