Thanks to Tim for sending: “They installed the Anthem sign facing the river at the Wharf.” Ed. Note: They open October 12th with a sold out Foo Fighters show. But just looking at the photo has me rather giddy and anticipating going to a show there. Also, I’m going to Sturgill Simpson at Merriweather on Friday – so let’s take it easy today and simply talk music – what’s the last concert you went to and where was it? For those who have future tickets – what’s the next one you’re going to and where is it?

Slowly, slowly. Stay tuned.

Mural in progress by Jarrett Ferrier. Props to Stephen Voss and Charlene Kannankeril for making it happen.
“Charlene and I worked on the DCCAH grant application, soliciting opinions on subject matter from the community, meeting with the Tenleytown Historical Society and presenting at the ANC3E meeting. Jarrett came up with a rendering incorporating the top votes on subjects and then took community feedback and revised it before we submitted the grant application. We were thrilled to receive the grant and are thrilled the that the building’s owners have allowed Jarrett to use the entire south-facing wall.
Jarrett will be working on the mural most weekdays until completion around the end of September. We are working with area schools to make field trips out to the mural site and encourage residents to visit as well – 4425 Wisconsin Avenue NW (Han Cleaners/Envy Nails building). We’re putting up some information on this website and, closer to the completion of the mural, it will go live with interviews, photos and other information about the mural and its subjects.”

I’ve seen various posts about package thieves on foot. Yesterday I was the victim of a drive-by package theft. By a guy rocking a fedora who will now be known as the Fedora Bandit.
He was driving a greyish, late-model minivan with a large dent on the passenger side. He pulled over, walked up to the door of the house, grabbed the package, loaded it in his van, and drove off. He is a middle-aged, burly guy (maybe 5’8) with a white goatee and a slight limp in his right leg.
I’ve reported the theft and shared the video with MPD.”
I was writing about an issue with Fed Ex. Basically my fiancé and I live in an 8 unit condo building off of Georgia Ave NW and Park Road. We have experienced numerous problems with delivery personnel leaving packages outside the building which inevitably are stolen or lost. Worst thing about it is when you contact FedEx they’re like, the package says it was left “on porch” or “at front door” which both equate to the street. Then they say you don’t get a refund because delivery was made- even if it wasn’t. Then there’s little recourse unless you buy from a merchant that believes your story.
Just curious if there are other Petworth residents dealing with similar delivery person issues. Some other similar instances have occurred when UPS and Amazon drivers but not as frequent as FedEx. A few unit owners in our building have also experienced similar issues as well. Maybe getting the word out will cause something to change. *we can hope*”
