“Dear PoPville,

I was walking down Lanier Pl to grab coffee at Philz late this morning (Thursday, 10/15 around 1130) when I made eye contact with a very handsome man sitting on the patio with a friend. For a second, I thought it was a dude I’d previously dated (that ghosted me) so I turned around to confirm if it was him — it wasn’t. Basically, both of us ended up doing a double take to make eye contact again. At this point I flashed an inviting smile, alas mask got in the way and the moment was lost! If you are this handsome man and I read the situation correctly, hit me up! (If you are the handsome man and I read it wrong, please do not message me to destroy the fantasy!)”


“Dear PoPville,

“On Wednesday evening (October 14), a very helpful woman on her bike ride out of the Navy Yard gates stopped as I was walking my own across M Street SE. She asked if she could help with a flat tire and then laughed when I showed her that my bike was fine and I was just having a cargo problem — I bought more than I could safely carry in my bike bag at Blue Jacket and had to walk it home. Always good to find a fan of quality beer, especially if she’s a bike commuter.”
