“Dear PoP,

This bicycle has been left unclaimed at Duffy’s Irish Pub (2106 Vermont Ave. NW) locked to the bike rack in front for almost a week now. Its a beautiful bike and obviously well cared for by its owner.

It is a vintage cruiser-type bike, rust red in color, with a white wire basket in front, vintage bell and a Honolulu registration tag on the rear (22035) from 1966. It also has a sticker that states ‘mend your fuelish ways’.

Can you post this before it is declared abandoned and taken in by MPD for safekeeping (which almost gaurantees the owner will not be found)?

Duffy’s is closed until Thursday, so after Thursday they can either go directly to Duffy’s and let him know, or they can shoot me an email ([email protected]). Even if it’s after it’s taken in for safekeeping, I can help them retrieve it.”

That is a sweet bike!

And a reader lost some keys in northern Columbia Heights

“Dear PoP,

I seem to have lost a set of keys on Sunday afternoon. There’s a chance I dropped them on the way in from the grocery store. (It was the Harris Teeter, actually, and I drove home so if they did fall, it was somewhere near the car/house.) Could you see if any of your readers picked them up? There’s a car key plus four other keys on a Coach key ring.”

If anyone happened to pick up these keys please email me and I’ll put you in touch with the reader.
