14th and U Street, NW
“The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is scheduled to close two lanes of traffic on U St. NW between 14th Street and 17th Street and restrict curbside parking starting Monday July 16, weather permitting. At least one lane will be open to the traffic in each direction.
The closures and restrictions are needed for construction work, which includes milling and paving.
The contractor is authorized to work weekdays during the daytime from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm and Saturdays from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.
Signs will be posted at least 72 hours in advance at locations where parking will be restricted. These signs will notify the duration and dates of “No Parking” and provide contact information of the engineer in charge.
Traffic controls will be in place to warn drivers approaching the areas. Motorists should anticipate moderate delays due to the lane closures. Drivers are advised to stay alert while traveling through these locations and to be observant of the work zone.”

Come solve a crime that took place in Takoma Park 130 years ago!
HouseMouse Books and Vintage is excited to announce the debut of Escape the Bookshop II, our new limited-run escape room experience. Escape the Bookshop II is a unique group puzzle game that is based on a real crime that took place in Takoma Park around 130 years ago. It is designed and created by HouseMouse to be played in our atmospheric little bookshop. This is not your typical corporate escape room and makes for a memorable evening out with friends or family!
Bookings are now open for game dates in January through April 2024. The game generally takes place Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM but special arrangements can be made upon request. It is designed to be played by a group of 3 to 6 people (ages 16+) and lasts for one hour. No prior escape room experience is needed to enjoy the game.
