    There was another attempted carjacking the day before on the 1100 block of I St NE.

    Nice to see them put money into the place. Guessing that will reflect in the food prices but should be a welcomed addition to 14th Street. Still amazes me that now within a few blocks on 14th now you’ve got decent-to-good Thai, Chinese, Italian, Latin, French, Belgian, American, Spanish, Pizza, Tacos, Sushi. Add a good Indian place, a kabob joint, and place to get pho and I will be set.

          They’re trying a new delivery model where you drive to the restaurant, the driver pistol whips you, takes your car, and drops it off along with your food at your house.

            Yeah, I heard they partnered with UberBeats.
            I’m super excited (and hungry! and bloodied!)
