Washington, DC

“Dear PoPville,

One of the old pastry chefs that worked at China Chilcano by José Andrés got furloughed and she never got any help from unemployment so she opened her own business. A little taqueria. They’re currently popping up at little beast in Chevy chase with hopes of getting their own space. Her food is delicious. They’re popping up at little beast everyday! And also offering margarita deliveries to the whole dc area!” Read More

What an incredibly cool find by plansornoplans:

“Lying, thinking
Last night
How to find my soul a home
Where water is not thirsty
And bread loaf is not stone
I came up with one thing
And I don’t believe I’m wrong
That nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone. – Maya Angelou”

Thanks to Ed for passing on the note from owner Carlie Steiner:

“Hey neighbors, I’m moving out of DC

I’m sure some may have heard that Pom Pom (once Himitsu) will not be reopening. We tried, but for many reasons, will not be able to open our doors again. Safety was always my number one priority, and even if we had the funds today, I still wouldn’t be okay putting my staff back to work in that capacity. Read More
