I got called for Jury Duty, again. Now I get called every two years after seemingly rarely getting called. I even got called to a grand jury this year though fortunately, since I work for myself it would be rough to do, I didn’t have to serve on the actual jury. Anyway, now that I’ve figured out how to insert polls into posts again – I’d like to revisit the Jury Duty question. When’s the last time you were called to jury duty? Did you serve on a jury? How long did your jury duty last? Did you convict or acquit?


Thanks to Desiree’ for sending: “My boyfriend Eric spotted this hawk on top of Major General Logan at Logan Circle yesterday!”

If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.

Thanks to a reader for sending: “Is a new David Chang restaurant coming to SW? Not positive it’s momofuku but the name makes it seem like it may be.”

Hmm, I don’t think there is a Chang connection – while the liquor license placard posted for MOMO says:

“A new Retailer’s Class C Restaurant with a seating capacity of 74 and Total Occupancy Load of 80.”

The building’s website in SW has a teaser with the full name, Momo Chicken and Grill (see photo below.)

Momo Chicken & Grill’s Facebook for their Bethesda location says:

“MoMo is the place where Korean Fried Chicken is seasoned with Jazz Music. With its rustic design that combines musical antiques and industrial elements from 19th century, Momo will comfort you with soul food, drink and music.”

“Dear PoPville,

There are a lot of (intentionally?) hilarious things going on with this bloodmobile. First, we call them bloodmobiles. That is pretty wild. Second, on this particular bloodmobile, there is a blood crossing sign. There are blood drops (or sacks) with arms and legs crossing a street. Someone came up with this idea for a sign to stick on a bloodmobile and then had the sign made. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

Have readers have had similar issues receiving their Visitors Parking Pass (VPP)? In 2018 I never received mine after registering in November 2017. I called DDOT and they said they made a mistake and will resend to their printer, which would take 3-4 weeks, then I’d have to pickup at their offices in SW. Read More
