It’s becoming a bloodbath. This is becoming worse than the Quiznos cull of ’14. Thanks to Anita for sending from the “H and north cap location NW.” Updates, as always, when we learn who takes over the space.

Well this is interesting. Back in June we reported that Habana Village had become Prime Time Sports Bar. A reader spotted the return of a Habana Village awning. STAY TUNED.

I have your garden variety DC rowhouse. I’ve had my front porch and steps painted 3 times over the past 6 years, only to end up with the same peeling, flaking, looks like hell result after only a few months. Yes, I made sure they were using PORCH paint, and yes, they sanded dodgy areas to ensure an even surface. As I ride around the area and observe other front porches and steps, it seems that this issue is a common theme. The only porches that seem to be intact are homes with for sale signs in front so of course they have been freshly painted. Has ANYONE found a certain paint, technique or a contractor they have had longstanding success with? Your input is greatly appreciated!”
Doug has crossed the River! I run a restaurant in the Courthouse area of Arlington and my host told me some Doctor asked to speak with me. Almost immediately I felt I recognized him, and it took about 30 seconds into his story about being a neighbor and a former “regular” of ours, that his assistant had his car and he left his wallet, phone and keys in there and was having trouble getting in touch with him. He said the host was nice enough to let him use the phone but he had no luck. My first response was to just say “Doug?”, to which he said, “huh?”. I asked how I could help him and he asked for some free beer, to which my response was, “that’s not going to happen, Doug”. (more…)
