From Crumbs & Whiskers:
“So, what’s ahead for Crumbs & Whiskers in 2018? The biggest lesson I’ve learned in the past year is the vast importance of living a life that is aligned with our beliefs and values, so first things first: we’re rebranding. Our rebrand will put our ethics and our belief system front and center, as that is the starting point for any grand endeavor. We can’t wait to share what we’re all about with you — we think you’ll love it and our values might just resonate with you.”
And in the meantime:

Right?!?!?! What in holy hell… The Washington Post reported over the holidays:
“Romanian hackers took over two-thirds of the District’s outdoor surveillance cameras just before President Trump’s inauguration, according to a federal criminal complaint unsealed Thursday.
The January attack affected 123 of the D.C. police department’s 187 outdoor surveillance cameras, leaving them unable to record for several days. Two Romanians, whom law enforcement officials describe as part of a bigger extortionist hacking group, are being charged in D.C. federal court with fraud and computer crimes.”

The following was written by PoPville contributor David McAuley, founder of Short Articles about Long Meetings.
At its regularly-schedule monthly meeting January 3, Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2F/Logan Circle voted to support releasing a developer from a legal obligation to add a single studio apartment at the Logan Station Conominiums (1210 R Street NW) to the city’s affordable housing pool.
In compensation, the developer agreed to add a one-bedroom apartment at 721 Kennedy Street NW (more than three miles away) to the city’s affordable housing pool. In addition, the developer will provide the following to the Logan Circle area: (more…)
We worked directly across from the FBI building downtown and at random times throughout the day, with no rhyme or reason, strobe lights start going off in certain rooms in the FBI building. We have always wondered what is going on in there. Without knowing the answer, our minds are running wild with theories! Is it some type of emergency light, do people have to work under those lights everyday, is there something more sinister going on?”
For the past three to four weeks, I’ve been noticing parked cars that have been smashed on Girard Street NW between 13th St. and 14th St. There have been different cars parked in the same couple of spots on the street. Typically one or two cars are crushed and are likely totaled while another two or three cars look badly scraped or dented. This has been consistently happening lately with many different cars getting damaged. Across the street is a driveway and parking lot for a day care center. I can’t tell if this series of incidents is from some type of truck, a drunk driver, or something completely different.
By my count, this is the third incident over three weeks, but I was out of town for 6 days).
I just called the V Street Police Department, who couldn’t have been less helpful. I just wanted to see if this has been reported, and if anyone had anymore information!”
