“Sunday May, 22nd will be our last day of operation as a retail bakery.

Our wholesale business has taken off, so we are going to focus on this in order to allow for future growth.

We will continue to operate out of our kitchen at 1407 T Street NW, and we have arranged for another local business to take over the storefront. (We’re not yet able to announce who’ll be moving in, but – for now – suffice it to say that we’re thrilled to be working with them, and we think they’ll be a great addition to the neighborhood!)

“Dear PoPville,

FYI, Eatonville Inc. (owner of Mulebone at Union Row, 2121 14th St NW) is seeking to terminate the Settlement Agreement it signed with a former Union Row resident in 2009. Eatonville Inc. claims that because the former resident was the “sole beneficiary” of the agreement, and the resident has since moved away, the restaurant should be able to terminate the agreement.

The Settlement Agreement requires: (1) emphasis on food with limited live entertainment, (2) any live music must only be audible inside the restaurant and must end by 10pm, (3) maintenance of a security plan, (4) outdoor patio must close by midnight, (5) reasonable efforts to eliminate rat infestation, (6) signs advising patrons of capacity limits and the residential nature of the neighborhood, and (7) encouragement for patrons to use public transit or park in public garages rather than on residential streets. Mulebone’s current liquor license class is C-Restaurant.

There is a hearing on Eatonville Inc.’s request for termination of the Settlement Agreement on June 13, 2016. Anyone who’d like to appear before the board to protest the request must file a petition or request to appear before May 31, 2016. Notice of the hearing, and a copy of Eatonville Inc’s request, are attached. (more…)

Victorian homes on this block were built in the late 1800s and tend to be small in scale. Given the proximity to U Street amenities and Metro, it is not surprising that there is strong sales activity in the immediate area. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

The scam is alive and well at the 14th & W CVS. I just saw a man (older, slim, African-American, stooped over and pushing a walker) ask the cashier to exchange his $20 for two $10s “for a cab.” Then he turned around and almost immediately asked me (in line to check out) if I had a $20 for two $10s. When I got up to the cashier, I told her and her manager about the guy and the scam. They hadn’t heard of it before. Time for another PSA!”
