But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in D.C.

Thanks to Kevin for sending the story from WTOP:

“Scottsdale, Arizona-based Cold Stone Creamery will open its eighth Washington-area location this summer in D.C.’s Cleveland Park neighborhood.

The ice cream chain has signed a lease for 1,400 square feet at Sam’s Park & Shop shopping center at 3503 Connecticut Ave. NW. It will replace Secolari Olive Oil at the property, owned by Rockville-based Federal Realty.”

Secolari closed back in April and Petco’s last day is January 23rd (Target coming.) Cleveland Park once had a Cold Stone Creamery located at 3508 Connecticut Ave, NW. That space is becoming a Pivot Physical Therapy.

Diet Starts Monday opened up back in May. This space was an empty lot next to Marvin and turned into Blackbyrd Warehouse which was built and opened back in 2011. Then it became a Vietnamese Restaurant and Pho house (Hanoi House) in 2012, and Marvin also expanded into the upstairs space in 2012, then it briefly housed a Maketto residency before becoming Den of Thieves and then briefly The BBQ Joint.

Did anyone ever go to ‘Diet Starts Monday’?

Thanks to all who messaged. Nathan reports:

“My sister spotted this scene in Logan Circle at around 8:30 this morning. Looks like someone had a rough – and super dangerous – night.”

“Somebody “parked” on Logan Circle. Hope everyone was OK. Seems like a metaphor for #shutdown2018.”

“Dear PoPville,

I came out of a meeting in Dupont to hop on my bike to my next meeting to find a Mobike on top of mine. I pulled it off and tried to go on my way but the back tire wasn’t moving because the Mobike had broken my back brake and smashed it into the tire to the point that it can’t move! Now I also can’t easily push my bike to a shop. Has anyone succeeded in getting Mobike assistance in repairing the bike or at least identifying the Mobike user who did the damage?”
