Yard House’s website says:

“If you’ve been to a Yard House, you know there’s an unmistakable energy to the place – an excitement that you feel the moment you walk in the door. So we turned our cameras loose to try to capture that spirit. Check out the experience that define us – because more than beer, more than classic rock, more than delicious food, even more than a brand – We are Yard House!

You can see their Springfield, VA menus here.

Stay tuned for an opening date.

“Dear PoPville,

All incidents occurred between 3PM and 7PM.

1. One day, when I attempted to disembark the train at Petworth Metro Station, a group of about 30+ loud and super rowdy teenagers rushed the metro car door and would not let anyone get out of the train. I felt that my safety was at stake, so I pushed my way through the crowd in order to get off the train and exit the platform. Someone in the crowd punched me in the arm. When I got to the platform exit gate, I asked the station manager to call the police. While waiting on the police to arrive, five other passengers arrived separately and asked to call the police. It appeared that the entire Petworth metro station was being overrun by a hundred or so out-of-control high school age teenagers. In the 15 minutes that I was at the manager office waiting on the police, at least 30 of the teenagers (without displaying any type of credential) defiantly walked past the station manager and through the emergency exit gate.

2. On a Saturday afternoon (more…)

A reader reports Monday night:

“I’ve witnessed two very violent altercations between cyclists and drivers over the course of 1.5 years in DC – in the 1st one, the driver turned his car across two lanes of traffic and pulled a metal baseball bat out of his trunk against a cyclist he had knocked over.

Feb. 19th: I watched a convo between a cyclist in a bike lane on G St and 13th and a driver escalate to him pulling the cyclist off his bike, and beating him up. Thankfully the cyclist had pepper spray, since my screaming at the driver to stop didn’t do anything.

Moral of the story is road rage is real (especially against cyclists), wear a helmet, make sure your photos of license plates are clear, don’t be afraid to use a u-lock in self defense, and maybe carry pepper spray.”

“Dear PoPville,

Last evening my husband was walking our dog at 5:45pm right past the gas station at 14th & W Streets NW. Two women with short hair were walking a large black dog with some brindle coloring. They let their dog off of its leash and it charged my husband and our dog (a corgi). It immediately went for our dog’s throat and while my husband was able to tackle it off of our dog he broke his finger and sustained a bite. He’s on his way to the ER and the finger injury will obviously impact his work. He was in such a panic over whether or not our dog was hurt (she is relatively okay) and in pain himself that he didn’t get their information before they fled. He says there were lots of witnesses because of the time of day and nice weather. If anyone has a picture or video, we would love to obtain it so this doesn’t happen to others. Thanks.”

Ed. Note: If there are any witnesses please email [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch with OP.
