I have a horrible story that should go out as another FYI to people. I live in a small condo building near U Street and we have a small, but gated, front lawn. Recently two of us in the building gave birth, making it now 3 kids in our 6 unit building, and we began leaving our strollers outside of the building, inside the gate and right next the front steps (as our other neighbor with a 3 year old has been doing for years). Well, this morning (sometime between 10am and 11:30am) as I was sitting in my living room with my 4.5 month old, my neighbor’s stroller got stolen from our front patio, just feet from my front door!
Am I being naive to think no one would take a stroller? I just think this is awful and I hope it’s a lone incident and not another thing we have to watch for in this area.”

Come solve a crime that took place in Takoma Park 130 years ago!
HouseMouse Books and Vintage is excited to announce the debut of Escape the Bookshop II, our new limited-run escape room experience. Escape the Bookshop II is a unique group puzzle game that is based on a real crime that took place in Takoma Park around 130 years ago. It is designed and created by HouseMouse to be played in our atmospheric little bookshop. This is not your typical corporate escape room and makes for a memorable evening out with friends or family!
Bookings are now open for game dates in January through April 2024. The game generally takes place Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM but special arrangements can be made upon request. It is designed to be played by a group of 3 to 6 people (ages 16+) and lasts for one hour. No prior escape room experience is needed to enjoy the game.
