From a press release:

“The Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum is Washington, D.C.’s source for the solar eclipse Aug. 21. A total solar eclipse has not crossed the U.S., coast to coast, in nearly 100 years. In Washington, D.C., the moon will partially eclipse the sun, blocking 82% of the sun from view at 2:42 pm EDT. On the day of the eclipse, both museum locations will host viewing opportunities (weather permitting), hands-on activities and will be giving away free safe eclipse glasses. The museum’s “STEM in 30” program will broadcast live online from the “path of totality” and the museum in Washington. The eclipse will also be broadcast live online from the Phoebe Waterman Haas Public Observatory, weather permitting.

From a press release:

“Fans have traveled far and wide for experimental and barrel-aged beers from The Bruery since the independent craft brewery opened its doors in Orange County in 2008. From homebrewing roots and an unassuming corner unit in a business complex that housed the company’s first brewhouse and Tasting Room, the company has methodically grown its footprint and capabilities. This includes the build out of three distinct brands – The Bruery, Bruery Terreux and Offshoot Beer Co. – in addition to state-of-the-art enhancements in brewing and production, expansion into new markets and opening a second Tasting Room at the sour & wild Bruery Terreux facility.

The company has a reputation for pushing boundaries, such as creating a new category for bourbon barrel-aged imperial stouts, one that hovers around 20% ABV, and Society membership programs for fans to connect with their favorite breweries on an even deeper level. But there is one thing that the company has never been bold enough to attempt: establishing a brick-and-mortar presence east of the Mississippi. That is, until now.

This fall, The Bruery is branching out and bringing beer directly to the East Coast by opening a premier retail store that’s within driving distance for thousands of fans of independent craft beer. Located in the heart of one of Washington, D.C.’s most exciting urban villages, The Bruery Store at Union Market District will provide easy access for Society members to pickup online purchases, along with onsite bottle and can sales, rotating taps for growler fills, merchandise and gifts for the general public.

“Dear PoPville,

I noticed this graffiti on my walk to work this a.m. at approx. 8:30. I assumed it was graffiti and not an avant-garde art piece because of the location (near the scaffolding) and the normally pristine conditions of the Phillips. Any thoughts?”

hahaha thanks to Tracy for sending:

“Thought this ad was funny. Place sounds nice enough until the last part- must be 5’3″ or shorter to live there because of the low ceilings!”

Real Estate Fresh Finds is a weekly selection of newly-listed properties in the District, brought to you by Real Living At Home.

July’s median sales price was $570,000, matching last year’s median exactly and tying the highest July level on record.

Prices may be topping off but supply is still currently low. Many District residents are on those late summer vacations, meaning there are August home deals available and waiting for you below:

  • Ever thought about being your own landlord? The most expensive listing this week is this 8-unit condo building that’s being sold as one package for the low, low price of $3.4million — that’s only $425k per unit!
  • This completely remodeled home in Brightwood has everything you could want, including a separate lower-level suite to rent out or house your au-pair, in-laws or cranky teenager.
  • A foreclosure in Petworth for less than $130k and it’s substantially cheaper than a lot of the other 1-bedroom units sold in the building.
  • Did you hear yellow countertops are making a comeback? We didn’t either. This 3-bedroom rowhouse in Brentwood is at a good price.
