The liquor license placard for Sonny’s Square Pie/Sister Bar says:

“New class “C” restaurant with 199 seats and a Total Occupancy Load of 250. Applicant requests
two Summer Gardens: a front Summer Garden with 25 seats, and a rear Summer Garden with 95 seats. Applicant has also applied for an Entertainment Endorsement.”

City Paper reports that it comes from next door neighbors, Colony Club, and in addition to the square pizza:

“The menu will also include house-baked breads, sandwiches, salads, and “old-school New York-style sides like garlic knots and pepperoni rolls.”

Thanks to a reader for passing on the report from NBC Washington:

“The D.C. government has ordered the shutdown of three Five Guys restaurants in the city because the owners failed to pay sales taxes, officials say.

The locations ordered to close are at 1400 I St. NW, near the McPherson Square Metro station; at 1300 Second St. NE, near the NoMa-Gallaudet U Metro station; and in L’Enfant Plaza.”

From the Columbia Heights listserv:

“I have been shopping for years at various MOM’s markets and find their wide selection and reasonable pricing to be unparalleled in providing organic foods for their respective communities. I have spoken with managerial personnel at their stores about the possibility of MOM’s opening a market in Columbia Heights. They suggested that we communicate our interest in having our own MOM’s market directly to the owner of the markets, Scott . I specifically asked if the owner might object to many individuals sending personal e-mails and was assured that, on the contrary, Scott would welcome such communications/requests. So, if you’d like to chime-in on this subject, send your thoughts to [email protected]

Just to add, MOM’s markets have an excellent selection of organic bulk foods but at prices far lower that those of comparable markets. They also function as what I would call a full-service market but with added features like Naked Lunch, their healthy, customized eat-in buffet.

Here’s hoping that this grass-roots effort will result in a community asset certain to enhance our quality of living in Columbia Heights.”

“Dear PoPville,

I moved back in April and again this past weekend (far too many moves for any 1 person). Both times I reserved parking, paying the $55.00 at each location fee to do so. Inevitably, someone is parking in the spot during the assigned time, which prevented me from moving the U-Haul into the correct spot. As frustrating as this was, I became even more frustrated when both in April and again this weekend, DPW Parking Enforcement was both rude to me and did nothing. The staffers at Parking Enforcement first require you to call 72 hours before your move to have someone come out and confirm the signs have been put up. In April, I called and they never sent anyone out. So, when I called on the day of the move, they told me I hadn’t had the signs verified so they couldn’t tow the vehicle.

This time on move day, I called 5 times over the course of a 12 hour period (I had the signs for 24 hours, so I could get things packed up the night before). They kept telling me they were sending someone out to ticket and then I would need to call back to have them towed. No one came even to ticket. I also was told to email a picture of my signs, but got no response to that.

I didn’t want to get my neighbors towed, but I also didn’t want to block traffic with my U-Haul. $110 per move is also not cheap for a system that has failed me.

Not normally one to complain about city services, but this is driving me crazy.”
