From MPD:

“Shooting at 2335 hrs in the 1400 block of R Street, NW. Lookout for a B/M, 5’10, heavyset, wearing a black shirt.

The Third District is currently investigating a shooting in the 1400 block of R Street NW. An adult female has been transported to an area hospital with non life threatening injuries.

Motorists and pedestrians can expect road closures in the area.

Anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099.”

A reader reports:

“There was a block party that went on all day on R St. The street had been closed to allow for this.

Around 11:50 PM, we hear approx 10 rounds of gun shots fired. It was very loud. We looked over the balcony of our roof top and saw the Red Light Bar immediately clear out (corner of 14th and R St). There must have been 40 people on their outside patio — it was packed as it was a nice night. Everyone went running for cover.

Within 1 minute, another round of gun shots went off — even before I could call 911. This time with approx 6 shots being fired. (more…)

Drink Company Facebook says:

“Wubba Lubba Dub PUB was designed by fans for fans, though we think everyone would have enjoyed it. It was a labor of love and included hand sewn Meeseeks from our CEO Angie’s mother; graffiti work by an incredible artist; a 25-foot Ruben cut out by our Special Projects Director, hockey-referee-turned-craftsman Matt Fox; and deep references to a show that has made us all laugh out loud and confront the deeper meaning behind the gags. In a word, we are fans geeking out.

Turner Broadcasting/Cartoon Network wasn’t willing to let us do that and demanded we shut down. We then reached an agreement, and thus delayed for a week, but they changed their minds, threatened us with exorbitant fees and then took everything off the table today and refused to talk any further.

Taqueria Habanero not sitting by quietly while Mezcalero expands. The Taqueria Habanero vs Mezcalero wars rage on. Thanks to Elle for sending the photo above announcing a new location coming to 8147 Baltimore Ave in College Park. For those not familiar with Taqueria Habanero, I pity you. Also:

“Here, we strive to provide you with the exact ingredients used from the streets of Puebla, Mexico. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

My fiancé and I are getting married on 10/27 at Carnegie Institue and we are having a hell of a time finding a day of coordinator for our wedding. We are super organized and have most everything already panned out, we are just needing someone to help keep things running smooth the day of. Any recommendations?”
