3435 Connecticut Avenue, NW
Or vice versa. Or at the very least we can call this a wash. Thanks to Justin for sending word that the 7-E opened, which personally only stings so much because this was previously home to two fantastic restaurants – Dino’s and Yanyu.
In more exciting news, on the other end of Cleveland Park’s anachronistic service lane – a flyer for the new farmers market kicking off Saturday (across the street on the west side of Connecticut).
Props to the Cleveland Park Business Association and Susie Taylor, among others, for making the Market happen:
“CPBA is pleased to announce the launch of Cleveland Park’s own Farmers Market every Saturday morning from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm on the West sidewalk of Connecticut Ave NW between Newark and Ordway.
Join your friends and neighbors and shop with Garner’s Produce, Stachowski Sausage and Charcuterie, Happy Hens Barnyard eggs, Fresh Crunch pickled items, Les Caprices Belgian waffles plus other great local purveyors. We also hope that you will shop locally at your neighborhood businesses throughout the week.”
Ed. Note: Standby for updates on the Uptown Market and hopefully the inevitable death of the current “service” lane that keeps Cleveland Park in a choke hold of failed suburban car oriented planning. Speaking of which, God willing, historic designation or not, Sam’s Park & Shop – you’re next.
God, I love this. Also in front of one of my favorite Georgetown houses (photo doesn’t do it justice on the overcast day but it’ll give you a taste):
From an email:
“On Thursday, June 1 from 10:45 a.m. to 10 p.m., Chipotle Mexican Grill will host a fundraiser across all D.C. Chipotle locations to support the D.C. Public Library Foundation. When customers dine at any of these locations and mention the fundraiser at the register, Chipotle will donate 50 percent of the proceeds to the D.C. Public Library summer reading program.
For the fourth year, Chipotle is looking forward to partnering with the D.C. Public Library Foundation, a nonprofit organization that enhances DC Public Library resources and programs to promote literacy and a thirst for knowledge.”
Nice! Another dope old Mustang. Thanks to a reader for sending from Georgetown.
Thanks to Kyra for sending from Capitol Hill.

Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them.

A few weeks ago as I was driving on I-66 in Rosslyn, a truck changed lanes in to my car. Fortunately no one was hurt and the damage was limited to a broken rear view mirror and dent on the front panel of the car above the wheel well (both on the driver’s side). The other driver was clearly at fault and it was late at night so we exchanged contact information and I took a photo of his driver’s license. I also photographed the damage to my car at the scene. The other driver was nice enough about it, and he mentioned that it was his friend’s car (which will be relevant in a second).
A few days later, I got a quote from my local dealership for the repair work, which came in around $900. Today, I contacted him about the damage to see how he wants to handle it. He said that because he was driving his friend’s car, his insurance won’t cover the damage to my car. (more…)
