North Capitol and P St, NW

“Dear PoPville,

In the last day or so (maybe since yesterday morning), the building on the corner off North Cap and P was completely demolished (picture attached). I think I read somewhere a while ago that it was owned by Douglas, but I could be making that up. Any idea what is going in here? First, Uncle Chips adds alcohol, then DCity Smokehouse beautified itself; even Firehouse is finally opening next week. Does this mean the revitalization of North Cap has finally arrived?”

Uncle Chip’s opened up on North Capitol between P and Florida Ave back in Jan. 2012. A liquor license placard has been posted that says:

“New tavern serving bakery items. Social Meeting place. Occupancy load is 8. Sidewalk Cafe.”

Hours are listed as Sunday through Saturday 7 am – 10 pm.

Any fans of Uncle Chip’s? Would you get a beer here?

Dunbar High School Track Open to Public?

“Construction at Dunbar High School’s track looks like its complete. Anyone know if it will be open to the public at all?

I know Cardozo’s is open in the mornings, and I was hoping Dunbar would be the same, but so far everything is still locked up.”
