A reader reports:
“It looks like more poo problems at WSC on Connecticut Avenue. These signs were posted on every stall and mirror in the women’s locker room.”

From an email:
“Three years after opening FIT4MOM in Capitol Hill, we’re beyond excited to open our first FIT4MOM location in NW DC.
I am interested in taking a self defense class with several of my female friends. I’m hoping the community can share places where we may be able to accomplish that for free or minimal fees and a few hours of our time.”
4203 9th Street, NW when Lighthouse first opened at this location in 2014
Thanks to David for passing on:
“It’s with great sadness that I must let you know that Lighthouse Yoga Center will be closing our doors at our 9th Street location on September 22. We were notified by our landlord that the building is being sold, and the new owner wants us out immediately. Unfortunately, according to the terms of our commercial lease, we have no recourse but to leave. (more…)
Thanks to Sara for passing on from MINT:
“After an amazing 8 years, we will close the doors of our downtown location [1001 16th St, NW] on Tuesday, August 28th, 2018. But don’t sweat (at least not until you’re taking a MINT Box class), we have two awesome locations, MINT Dupont and MINT Manhattan Laundry. While the building’s owner decided to lease the space to a corporate chain, we’re thankful for all the memories we’ve shared at this location. That being said, we will continue to be your neighborhood gym providing more class, and less drama.”
Any guesses on who the corporate chain is?
