Back in August of 2016 there was a Ping Pong Closure scare (so much for the Wahlburgers too eh?) Looks like time is finally up. Calls for confirmation go to a filled up voicemail box. Updates when we learn what becomes of the space.

Thanks to Hannah for sending from Franklin Square Park.

If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send in an email where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.

“Dear PoPville,

I wonder if the restaurant coming in the old Washington Pizza Building retail space is Kapnos?

Check out the google maps of that street. (above)”

14th and Randoph St, NW

Mike writes:

“Building Permit has been posted it’s only going to be six residential units, no retail

But wait, maybe a Kapnos will come to the old Carolina Restaurant space across the street…

“Dear PoPville,

The attached image is the northwest corner of 16th and Newton Streets NW. It seems like every few weeks a truck cuts the turn from southbound 16th to westbound Newton too close and hits the traffic signal on the left, with the red light, turning it to face the wrong direction. I’ve reported it to 311 multiple times and the signal is usually turned back around within 48 hours, only to be hit again not long after. It’s been turned back around the right direction but I’m sure it will get twisted again soon. I’m wondering at what point does DDOT figure out that the signal and/or pole should be re-positioned to avoid getting hit? “

From La Mano Coffee Bar via Old Takoma Business Association:

“After 5 years, I am sad to announce that I will be moving on from la mano on March 5th, 2018. Over coming weeks, my staff and I want to thank all of you in person, see our favorite people, and give you a chance to stock up on your favorites.

While uncertain, there may be upcoming news on a possible new future for la mano that we will share. Otherwise the business will close with my departure. (more…)
