From The Logan Circle Community Association:
“Join us Wednesday, October 11, 7:00 to 9:00PM, in a lively conversation with Theatre leadership and community members that explore the themes and context of Studio’s plays, alongside ways for audiences to engage with the process, and people behind the work on their stages.
Studio Theatre is Washington’s premier venue for contemporary theatre, where local audiences will find today’s edgiest playwrights. Located in DC’s Logan Circle neighborhood for more than 35 years, Studio led the transformation of the 14th Street corridor into the vibrant mixed-use neighborhood that feels like one of the liveliest in the District.

I had a really bothersome experience. I was out walking my dog in the navy yard area, the part where all the row houses are. I noticed about 4 teenager-ish kids hanging out at corner and they began to disperse as I was walking up the block. I wasn’t paying attention and had my earphones in, and I didn’t hear them say anything to me until I was past them, and so when I finally noticed that one of them had said excuse me and was trying to get my attention. At this point all four – two on a bike and two on foot – had come back to talk to me (they had made it like halfway across the street. I took my earphones out and this is the story they told me:
They said they saw a car hit a dog, stop, pick up the dog and put it in the public trash can on the corner of the block. They said they got the guys tag numbers and that some lady had already reported it and that they were trying to find out whose dog it was. They asked if I lived around here and said that I should look and see if I know the dog. (more…)

“Pablo of Bloomingdale just turned 12. He loves hedgehog stuffed animal toys, napping in the back yard, and short walks not on the beach because he has arthritis.”
“This is Toby from Shaw (by way of NoMA, Brooklyn, and Staten Island). He is feeling himself in his new bow tie from Steadfast Supply.”
Thanks to a reader for passing on this scene from Friday afternoon:
“5pm Friday, 17th & Penn on Whitehouse grounds. Secret Service telling rider of dockless bike to stay away from his bike he just left and asking him why he left it there.”
