Washington, DC

3rd and F Street, NE

Thanks to all who helped us track this craziness in real time on our twitter.

I will add the official police report when it’s released. Basically, there was a shooting/shots fired in Columbia Heights starting around 3:50pm at 14th and Columbia/Harvard St, NW. There was then a huge police pursuit, including a helicopter, chasing a red moped. The pursuit went through Shaw, Bloomingdale, Truxton, NoMa, and H Street, NE. The driver of the moped was reportedly taken into custody around 3rd and F Street, NE. It is unknown if there are victims at this point but I will update when official word from MPD is released. Thanks again to all for helping us figure this out. Read More

Thx to DC residents doing their part + keeping $$ in our local food economy

I want to give a huge shout-out to all the DC residents out there who have stepped up to support their local farmers + food producers during this pandemic. I’m amazed by + grateful to all the folks getting local food delivery in an effort to “flatten the curve” and help local food producers through this rough patch. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

Any leads on where I could get potting soil either at curbside pickup or delivery for some house plants?”

Since gardening is a great, healthy, soul saving activity these days – I thought it’d be fun to share a bit of your color for those of us without green thumbs. Please email your garden photos (with garden in the title) to [email protected] Gardens can be big, small, balcony or even just a great plant you love in your house. Thanks!

“Dear PoPville,

I am looking for some guidance and help. I never realized I lived in an apartment with thin walls but now that everyone is home all day, it’s a reality I can’t escape.

My neighbors, a young couple, fight constantly. Not just the normal bickering that we all do with our significant others from time to time but full blown screaming, cursing, stomping matches. It’s daily. It’s hourly even. They both sound irate and they let each other know they are and it seems anything can set one off Read More


Update: On twitter Victor (and others) report: “They’re in line to get some food help from the Spanish Catholic Charities”

“Dear PoPville,

A friend sent me this pic of what looks like a strike? (No social distancing for sure) in front of Park Monroe on 16th NW and Monroe. Does anyone know. Perhaps dc rent strike?”

I thought we’d concluded our gym talk but after yesterday’s Washington Sports Club talk folks want to talk about Vida too. So here we are – thanks to Paul for sending the latest from Vida:

“To our VIDA Fitness Members,

Every day we are experiencing an unprecedented volume of twists & turns as our nation comes to grasp with the coronavirus pandemic. It’s vital that I continue to keep you abreast of what we are doing and provide you with the most accurate and up-to-date information.

In my original letter dated March 15th, I wrote to inform you that we voluntarily closed all VIDA locations from March 16th to March 31st. A few days after we voluntarily closed, Mayor Bowser mandated that all health clubs must remain closed through April 24th. Yesterday, the Mayor issued a Stay At Home Order. We are also dialed-in to the many briefings from Governor Northam and Governor Hogan. We expect things will continue to progress and find it unlikely that we’ll receive approval to reopen our doors before the end of May. Read More
