This guy wasn’t just popping a wheelie – he was riding this way the entire time – uphill on Wisconsin Ave. Respect!!

“I found this dockless bike near the corner of 7th and P in Shaw early Sunday morning. Though I didn’t think it was garbage, someone else was clearly unhappy with it.”
Ed. Note: I’m beginning to think maybe we simply just drink too much to have a dockless option.
If you spot a dockless bike in an odd location please send a photo in an email and mention where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Where’d You Find A Dockless Bike Today? is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.

Calle Cinco is adjacent to Alta Strada at 465 K Street, NW
From an email:
“Calle Cinco, the Spanish tapas pop-up from Chef Michael Schlow and team, will continue for the foreseeable future. Thanks to an overwhelmingly positive response from patrons and support from the Mt. Vernon Triangle neighborhood, Schlow, Chef George Rodrigues and the rest of the team have decided to extend the tapas concept.
As such, the team has debuted a new happy hour menu, available every day of the week from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. featuring $5 drinks, and an assortment of cured meats, cheeses and tapas priced at $7 and under. Highlights from the menu include two kinds of “bikini sandwiches,” Serrano ham and Manchego or mushroom, Mahon and truffle, a play on a grilled cheese that’s popular in Barcelona; as well as tortilla espanola, papas bravas and pan con tomate.

The following was written by PoPville contributor David McAuley, founder of Short Articles about Long Meetings.
“This is a gorgeous project. It’s a magnificent project,” said Commissioner Andy Litsky, Chair of Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 6E/Waterfront.
Commissioner Rhonda Hamilton (district 06) called it “a beautiful phase two”.
“Phase one is extraordinary and we fully expect to come to a good conclusion rapidly,” said Commissioner Meredith Fascett (district 07).
Nevertheless, ANC6E, after listening to a long presentation led by Shawn Seaman, Executive Vice President of developer PN Hoffman, voted to protest the request to DC’s zoning authorities to proceed with the project because a few details remained to be negotiated. Among the matters of contention were:
— working out an on-street parking plan that kept tour buses off residential streets,
— the details of a prohibition on electronic signs (e.g., will bus stop advertisements be included?),
— minimizing the inconvenience that the project will cause to “live-aboard” community, that is, Washingtonians whose homes are boats moored in a Southwest marina.
This last group made a strong showing at the meeting, with over 50 people on their feet when the ANC asked members of the live-aboard community to stand up. The local live-aboard community claims 94 members total.

The tone of the meeting was very cordial and both ANCs and audience members seemed eager to get the project moving forward. (more…)

Know of any places that accept donations of wedding dresses in D.C.? I was hoping there’d be an easy online gig – they send the packaging, you mail the dress – but I didn’t see anything after a quick google search. Would also be happy to donate to a place easy to get to in D.C.”
