Finally we know who is taking over the former long vacant Eaton’s Barber Shop space between Lovely Yogurt and Lounge of Three – Corps d’Elite.
I just like their tagline:
Saturday night (10/11) around 11:30pm, I was walking down 14 St around Florida Ave with a group of friends when we saw a young man get attacked. As you may know, Miss Adams Morgan was last night at the Hilton near Dupont. The young man was in drag, wearing white spandex shorts and carrying a fabulous pair of heels, clearly on his walk home from the event. An approximately 30-year-old man wearing a blue Knicks hoodie approached him as he quietly waited for the light to change at Florida. The man in the hoodie got in his face, asked why he was dressed that way and if he was gay. When the brave young man said yes, he was in fact gay, and then turned to cross the street, the man in the hoodie grabbed his shoulder, spun him around, and sucker-punched him in the middle of the intersection. After he hit the pavement, a crowd of strangers rushed in to help and protect him, and the man in the hoodie calmly left down 14 St.
A few strangers then escorted the young man who had been assaulted the rest of the way to his home. A friend of mine called the police, but we couldn’t tell them much about where to find the assaulter. I can’t imagine the emotional damage that needless encounter has had on the young man who bravely expressed and stood up for himself. I don’t expect to solve this crime in any way, but I hope DC can be better and more tolerant in the future through learning about these events.”
Thumbs up or down or neutral?

Prevention Tip of the Day: Never leave you Bicycle unattended, even for a second. This is all it take for an assailant to made away with your property. Always lock your bicycle when leaving it unattended. The best locking mechanism to prevent a bike theft is a heavy gauge U lock, although any lock is better than none.”
