“Here are Pondado, 1 (top), and Cintabun, 10 (bottom). New best friends, separated by 9 years and about 20 pounds. Cintabun is recovering from a recent face first fall from his second story apartment window. He was saved only by the lightness of his being and his positive outlook. Pondado is basically feral, totally sweet and growls out of affection. Both have wonderful eyes and good meows, and they enjoy each others company immensely. Cintabun and Pondado reside in Cleveland Park.”

Ed. Note: Also me, every single morning.
For years, a group of men have hung out on our street in DC smoking, drinking, and mostly talking about the Redskins and Wizards. One or two live on the street but most of the men do not live elsewhere (a few drive in with MD and VA tags). One by one, they arrive in the early afternoon and stay until late in the evening or early the next morning. While annoying, we pretty much dealt with it. Recently they have started to bring folding chairs and a charcoal grill. Not only do they block the sidewalk but they leave their trash on the ground and walk into the nearby alley to relieve themselves. (more…)

I took these photos this afternoon from the corner of Florida Avenue and W Street NW (across from the future Whole Foods). Any idea what this will be?”
This is the former home to Darnell’s/Blind Dog Cafe/Mocha Lounge. I feel like I remember posting that this was going to become a nail salon but I can’t find the post. Does that sound familiar to you guys?

I am having THE WORST time with my surrendered license plate. After surrendering, my husband dropped the actual plate at FT Totten Transfer station to be shredded like the DMV website said, this was in November and December 2018. In April 2019 I started getting tickets on my old plate, which I surrendered. It is up to 900 dollars in fines already. (more…)
From CM Cheh’s twitter thread last night:
“Today, I introduced legislation to create new rules for electronic scooter/bike operators, users, and @DDOTDC. The first tweets on the bill focused on one particular provision, while the legislation is actually a rather broad bill with many components. (This is a long thread)
Electric scooters and bicycles produce multiple benefits for the District: reducing congestion and our carbon footprint, plus they’re fun for users. However, with these benefits have come significant challenges. (more…)
