Moments later, officers made a traffic stop of a speeding vehicle in the area. Upon making contact with the driver, it was discovered that he was suffering from a single gunshot wound to the chin. The victim reported he was sitting in his car when his front passenger window shattered. Realizing he had been shot, he attempted to drive himself to the hospital.

“Dear PoPville,

Advice needed. My 75 year-old mom is a Washington, DC native and long-time, die-hard Caps fan! I so want to get tickets for the Stanley Cup finals but cannot afford the cost of two tickets (~ $1400). Where do you think we could watch the games with other fans that would be fun and lively but not too rowdy for an ‘old’ lady? What bars / restaurants will likely show the games and fit that description? She lives in Northwest and I live in Northeast.

Thanks and GO CAPS!”

From an email bu add your recs in the comments please:

“Declaration Shaw & Nats Park will be offering an all-night happy hour every time the Caps take on the Knights. Declaration Shaw provides a more intimate bar to catch the games, whereas Nats Park has four flat screen TVs along with an outdoor walk-up bar. (more…)

Thanks to Ken for sending the shot above:

“Taken from my office, facing west over 19th Street.”

And Josh sends from the 600 block of T Street, NW below:

Our first sighting of the imaging balloon was back in October 2009. Last year we learned “The balloon was launched by Digital Design and Imaging Inc. to take aerial photos of the District’s skyline as part of the joint Height Master Plan the DC Office of Planning and the National Capital Planning Commission are conducting in response to a Congressional request.”

Though I wonder if the explanation is still accurate. Why is the survey taking so long or maybe this is a new survey?
