“Friends, come and join us on Sunday 6 August for the Wonderland Ballroom’s Lucky 13 Birthday Extravaganza. None of us at the bar understand how it is that city officials and humanity’s collective conscience have allowed us to remain open this long, but such are the mysteries of life, and we’re celebrating!
We’ll be running happy hour ALL DAY after brunch, and polite society is invited to come pay respects starting at 4:00 PM. Things get somewhat coarser starting around 7:00, and the earnest descent into something out of Dante begins around 8:00. Please plan accordingly. You’ll want to give yourself ample opportunity to clink glasses with your favorite bartenders, contemplate the bad choices of other people, swear oathes of fielty, and read the life advice on the bathroom walls.
Thanks to Mike for sending this awesome shot from: “M Street, Navy Yard Metro.”

“Looks like street car clipped the mirron on an ambulance at 14th & H. I don’t see any reason to have that lane at a standstill. Just have the cops take the info, and move on and take the car out of service.”

“The National Park Service (NPS) has released a Final Development Concept Plan for Buzzard Point Park, which includes ideas from the public on how to create an enjoyable and unique community waterfront park.
Through public engagement, the NPS gathered the best ideas for re-imagining Buzzard Point Park as a peaceful retreat for both recreation and relaxation. This process identified many exciting new opportunities for the park’s 3.5 acres with designs drawing from the native marshlands historically located along the shoreline.
The NPS developed two initial concepts for the park’s design. Both concepts incorporate the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail into the design. In Concept 1, the trail would follow the shoreline and be surrounded by landscape features. Concept 2 places the trail above the river on an elevated structure.
Other design elements include uninterrupted access to the river’s edge, a pedestrian promenade, a kayak launch, grass dunes, open lawn areas, restrooms and other facilities. Both concepts incorporate facilities to test a kayak sharing program and open spaces for a variety of play, educational and interpretive opportunities. (more…)
