“Looks like Pasha on 17th Street finally closed. Note the realtor lock by the door. Always empty so it’s amazing it held out that long.”
Ed. Note: I called Pasha’s phone number and it’s been disconnected. Updates when we learn what becomes of the space. Word on the street is that neighbor Agora could be taking over the space.
“Rock Creek Conservancy volunteers posing with their trashy trophies at the end of a long day cleaning up Rock Creek.”
From Rock Creek Conservancy:
“It’s clear to us; the new dockless bike-shares are finding their way into Rock Creek more often than the fully dockable Capital Bikeshares. We’re generally pro-biking here at Rock Creek Conservancy. So, we find ourselves faced with a tricky question. Could dockless bikes bad for our favorite lands and waters?
Rock Creek Conservancy volunteers spent the last weekend cleaning up Rock Creek during their Tenth Annual Extreme Cleanup. Volunteers worked at more than 40 sites throughout the Rock Creek watershed (with more than 60 throughout the entire month).

Statement from DHS:

The advertisements were intended to raise awareness of the program and help ensure that these crucial resources go directly to meeting the nutritional needs of District households. This campaign was 100% funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service for the explicit purpose of educating residents on ways to ensure the program can meet its goal of addressing food insecurity.
