Got a lot of queries about this on twitter @PoPville last night.

From MPD:

The Victim sustained several wounds that do not appear to be life-threatening. We are still actively working this scene and will release additional information as it becomes available.

The First District’s detectives office is investigating the above matter. Anyone with any pertinent information is asked to call the Tip-Line at 202-727-9099.”

From a press release:

“The Tryst Trading Company has announced it will now offer carryout with limited menu options at the Diner, in the Adams Morgan neighborhood.

The CEO and Owner Constantine Stavropoulos explains the priorities in safety and putting a limited staff back to work. “The health and safety of our staff is our first priority. Like many DC restaurants, we temporarily closed our restaurants in March. While it was a heartbreaking decision, we remained optimistic about reopening our doors in a safe and responsible manner. Our team members have been incredibly patient as we worked to reopen our doors.”

Guests can access the limited menu items from the Diner’s website, www.dinerdc.com. Carryout will be available daily, from 5 PM- 9 PM. Read More


If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share for the regular fix please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. AdoPtville is run by two volunteers who compile these pets weekly from local shelters.

Curly is a classy 9 year old tuxedo cat with good litter box manners and a serious but sweet disposition. He is still adjusting to his foster home and is a little shy at times but as he’s become braver he is a delightful boy who just wants to stick close, find nooks and crannies to investigate and occasionally have a cuddle (on his own terms). To meet Curly, please contact his foster family at [email protected] As an added bonus, if you’re over 50, my adoption fee is waived as part of Humane Rescue Alliance‘s Boomer’s Buddies program. Standard adoption procedures apply. For more information, click here

Chesapeake is approximately 10 years old and is super sweet, friendly and calm. He loves to prance on his walks, and follow his foster mom around the house. He is a total love bug.

“Dear PoPville,

My HOA and I have a question we were hoping PoPville could help us answer! Yesterday we were on our patios, which are usually very quiet considering how close we are to a major street, when it sounded like someone turned on a leaf blower or lawn mower. This is totally normal considering it was a beautiful day to do yard work, so we didn’t think much of it until the sound continued for about 5 hours straight. Upon a bit of investigation, it looks as if the building next to us installed a major industrial a/c unit that makes it sound like there is constantly a lawnmower running next door. Read More
