“Dear PoPville,

Have you heard anything about the closure of Five Guys in Terminal C (adjacent to gate 37) at DCA? I travel frequently for work, but haven’t flown from DCA in about a month; when I was last here in mid-December it was still open. The Five Guys sign is still up in the terminal, and both Five Guys and DCA’s websites still list this location as being active, but as you can see from the photos it’s been enclosed by a construction barrier.”

An unfortunate find from Erich in Brookland:

“In a dumpster. Pretty sure that’s St. Francis of Assisi, after whom the current pope is named.”

Thanks to Jessica for reporting:

“FYI, Zen Taco opened today.

Had the taco chinos; I’d give it a solid B. The same owners and staff as Custom Fuel, which is nice to see. Clearly some first day kinks to work out, but should be a great addition to the neighborhood. And their prices seem a bit lower than the menu online for the NYC location.

Also – they have frozen margaritas!”

We saw the fantastic photos from the march this morning. Fortunately the reflecting pool is not deep – all kidding aside this could’ve been incredibly dangerous. It got up to like 60 degrees on Saturday…in the future I hope folks will be smarter/signage warning of the danger will posted.

“Thankfully, bystanders were quick to lend a hand and most of the drenched were in good spirits.”

Unfortunately many more after the jump. (more…)
