“Dear PoPville,

We are looking for a great co-ed baby shower location in dc? Nothing too frilly or fancy- for about 30-40 people. A venue where we pay for food/drink but not space would be great, but isn’t required. We also don’t need a sit-down lunch- more like appetizers and finger foods. We are open to all kinds of ideas: restaurants, breweries, good rooftops, anything.”

“Dear PoPville,

What are some good DC-area donation centers for clothes and small household items? I have a bunch of items that aren’t nice enough for a consignment store but are in good enough shape that someone could definitely use them. Think clothing basics, mugs, cheap-but-cute shoes, that kind of thing. It’s the kind of stuff that I know Goodwill/Value Village/Salvation Army would take, but I’d prefer that it go somewhere local and without the sketchy politics/resale issues that plague big chains. My preference is for a place that will take it all, but I could do multiple stops if I need to (ie, one for clothing and another for household things).”


Thanks to Matt for sharing this curious photo from Kee:

I’m coming up with nothing. You guys? Caption contest?



Thanks to Jason for passing on this Bloomberg article:

“The Pentagon has revealed a few details about a secret Army mission that has Black Hawk helicopters flying missions over the Washington, D.C., area backed by active-duty and reserve soldiers.

Hall said the operation began early in the fiscal year, which started Oct. 1, and “the duration of the mission is undetermined.”
