The following apology was posted to numerous neighborhood listservs yesterday:
“I write to apologize to Ms. Rubin for telling her to leave my bakery, Bread Furst, because she had a dog. Although Ms. Rubin explained to me that her dog, who was small and well behaved, was a service dog, and she pointed out that her dog was wearing a service vest as well as service dog photo ID, I asked her to leave. I had a previous bad experience with a dog who was very disruptive to my customers, and I was reacting to that. It has always been a dream of mine to own a small, neighborhood bakery that people find welcoming. I failed to behave that way when Ms. Rubin and her service dog came to the bakery, so I apologize. At the bakery, we have placed signs on our door to make our policy clear that service dogs are welcome. I hope that Ms. Rubin will return.
Serious progress at Sfoglina.

Also stay tuned for the Soapstone Market too.

Any ideas? Caption contest?
Sweet, may they hit all four quadrants and as many neighborhoods as possible! The photo above is from the Saturday’s Van Ness/UDC Farmers Market (4340 Connecticut Ave, NW). I’ve also seen some of their goods at Smucker Farms (2118 14th St NW.) Anyone spot them elsewhere?

Props to the gardeners, photos don’t really do it justice, but this landscaping turned out great. It makes me like/appreciate the building about 1000 times more than I used to.
Thanks to a reader for sending this wild scene of a crow “dive bombing” a raccoon in a tree early this morning.
North Cleveland Park. There are so many my three year old doesn’t even bat an eye anymore. I, however, get very very excited!!
