“Meat-in-a-Box (between Jack Rose & The Blaguard) is now DC Pizza & Kabob (which seems to be substantially the same concept, but with a less interesting name). Not exactly sure when it happened but MIAB had been closed for a while.
Thanks to Carrie for sending:

Wiseguy Pizza in Navy Yard looking ready to roll! Christina reports:
“Furniture, lights and gelato case! Photos from last night. Paper has been off the windows for a couple days. Clearly still a work in progress but maybe opening day coming soon?”
This is the former Il Parco space and this is excellent news.
Passing along video/screenshot of thief stealing two packages from my front porch in Logan Circle yesterday. From the looks of his bag (and the other packages in it), he had been visiting several other porches, as well.
Hoping you might consider posting the photo and general location in order to put others on notice/to be aware.”

“This is Rude Boy the Hurricane Cat. He lives in the West End where he enjoys sitting on the window ledge, plotting how he will capture all the birds that fly by once he can escape my 330 sq ft studio.
As of July 24 I officially became his mom. A friend of a friend had originally adopted him down in the British Virgin Islands, where she was living until the hurricanes struck last year. She needed someone to foster him for a bit until she could get a roof back over her head and her place was safe enough for him to also live in. Fast forward nearly a year, her place is still not finished, and we all decided it would be best if he stayed with me forever.
He’s the best.”
“Max is celebrating his 4 year gotcha day! Who knew this pup would be so much energy and still makes us smile daily.”
For the second time in a week we have widespread power outage issues in the triangle east of 2nd St NE, South of Florida Ave and north of the H Street. On the Pepco outage map it looks like approximately 1,300 customers are without power. Last week’s outage(s) map looked like a “Whac-A-Mole” game, one outage would get fixed and multiple smaller ones would pop up. (more…)
Whoa, thanks to Kimberly for sending:
“Parts of rock creek are already crazy flooded. Here’s a photo from beach drive at 1:45 pm. Other cars were stranded on the other side and had to call for roadside help.”
