“I came upon this after this happened – don’t know the cause. I heard from people on Twitter that the cyclist walked to the ambulance on his own power. Irony: the person who appears to be the driver is wearing hospital scrubs.”

“On Saturday, July 26th, 2014, DJ Dredd will present a 30th Anniversary celebration of Prince’s seminal film and soundtrack, “Purple Rain” at the historic Black Cat nightclub in Washington, DC.
The celebration, which takes place at the Black Cat nightclub, will feature a screening of “Purple Rain” at 9pm, followed immediately by a Prince themed dance party–featuring a marathon set of music, remixes, and videos. The event will also feature giveaways, signature themed drinks and a costume contest. The Black Cat nightclub is located at 1811 14th Street, Northwest. Advance tickets are available from Ticketfly.
DJ Dredd has held residencies and created some of DCs most celebrated parties and his sets are constantly discussed as some of the best in the city. His genre-bending style of mixing and his uncanny ability to turn any venue into the best party in town has become his trademark—attracting a following just as diverse and extensive as his record collection.”

From a press release:
“Gallagher & Graham Fine Spirits are pleased to announce that they have reached a preliminary agreement with the owner of 1939 12th Street to open an upscale liquor store to serve the needs of the growing U Street Neighborhood. The group filed paperwork with ABRA in late June to open a Class A store and hopes to open its doors in early October.
Gallagher & Graham plans to specialize in craft beers, organic wines and selectively distilled spirits in addition to the staples. “We will carry a few of the name brands but really want to allow Washingtonians to sample some of the great products coming out of this region.” Said Tucker Gallagher, longtime U Street resident.
Gallagher, formerly in corporate marketing, has teamed up with his cousin, John Graham, a newly minted MBA with a focus in entrepreneurship. They are excited for the challenge of serving a changing neighborhood.
Mr. Gallagher came up with the idea while shopping for a dinner party: “The area east of 14th lacks a store where you can buy a fine wine for dinner, a decent craft beer to watch the game or a top shelf liquor to make cocktails. We want to be the first and only stop when U street resident are stocking their bars and wine cellars.”
In addition to serving the needs of the average customer, the duo hope to benefit from the recent trend in artisan products: “We want to help educate our customers about what they are drinking as well as introduce them to new brands. The craft spirit industry has really taken off in recent years and small batch products are in many cases better than the name brands people are familiar with.” added Graham.
“U Street has changed dramatically in the past 10 years and our neighbors are demanding more refined products for a cultivated palate.” Gallagher said “We look forward to providing a variety of quality products for the inquisitive gourmet.”
The store, to be located at 1939 12th Street, hopes to open in October upon approval of ABRA and input from local groups.”
