a woman he’d previously volunteered with at Dreams for Kids D.C. private messaged him and said she’d like to be his date.
“We both had the time of our lives at the wedding and will be hanging out again soon.”
See photos from the date here.

I thought this description from NCinDC was pretty funny:
Signs inside Crown Fried Chicken located at 716 H Street, NE
My better half wanted some fried chicken; myself, being a country boy from eastern North Carolina, wanted some collard greens. I asked one of the many people loitering outside Crown if they knew the best place to get collard greens. FUN FACT: collard greens is apparently slang for weed, or is it crack? The woman I had asked began telling everyone within earshot that I was a cop and to stay away from me. The cashier at Crown told me I should have said greens, sans collard.
Maybe it’s just me but I thought this was a pretty funny item to tout:

I suppose this should fall under sweet city ride as well…
Thanks to @lah1225 for sending Saturday afternoon:
“Strange sight driving down RI Ave at 8th street!”
@MeghanTighe tweets us @PoPville – “Safe sex on spring rd”.
A reader sends this one in from 11th and M St, NW:
“Now that Easter is done, it’s time to start thinking about taking down the Christmas tree.”
I am happy to report that the discarded trees from the 3500 block of New Hampshire Ave, NW have been picked up.
Mt. Vernon Square street-scape/sidewalk-scape(?) improvements continue. I’m digging these new benches. Though not a great view at the moment:

Had to do a double check when I passed this dog on a roof next to Morgan’s Seafood off Georgia Ave. But when I called animal control they said it was all good – there is a ramp that the dog can climb up and stretch his legs and do some people watching when he wants. Now that I write this, I kinda feel like a reader once told us about this in the past. Anyway, fear not if you notice a dog checking you out from a roof while you’re walking around Georgia Ave., it’s cool. And actually pretty awesome once you realize he’s just chilling.
After a long night of celebrating the re-election of President Obama, a drunken man rages through the streets of Washington DC with little mercy. Armed with nothing more than a scarf, the drunken man valiantly battles oncoming traffic before coming face to face with DC’s Fire & Rescue team.

“I wish I could tell you that this was the result of split-second timing, but sadly, I watched it stay this way for a good 5 mins as confused motorists tried to make up their minds. Taken along Alexandria in King St.”
From Capitol Improv:
The No Pants Subway Ride is an annual global event started by Improv Everywhere in New York in 2002.
For Washington, DC, we will be meeting at Hancock Park, also known as Box Car Willie Park on Google Maps, right outside the L’Enfant Metro station, at 2PM, and will reveal what time we’ll go pants-less. The nearest intersection is 7th and C Street, SW.
This year, we’re telling everyone the Metro boundaries ahead of time. We will be traveling between Metro Center, Chinatown, and L’Enfant Metro Stations.
