hahaha thanks to Charles for sending. “Showers work again.”
It’s all in the delivery.
What is PoPville’s favorite yoga studio? There are seemingly hundreds in our town, and I’ve been to several, but there are so many more to try!”
Thanks to all who passed on news from Washington Sports Club. In addition to the note above another reader shares:
“I complained and received a 50% off for next month.”
Ed. Note: I still want to know when the hot water gets fixed!!
James starting to lose his mind a bit, understandable: “HAHAHAHAHAHA!”
Another reader passes on an email from WSC:
“Unfortunately, we are still experiencing hot water issues and expect that they will continue into Tuesday, February 6th.
We are truly sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience while we resolve these issues.”

Amazing. Another update from J. on the Washington Sports Club saga in Columbia Heights.

Thanks to Kevin for sending: “Planet Fitness is scheduled to open at the Penn Branch Shopping Center this Spring. And unlike other Ward 7 projects (looking at you Skyland) this one is moving along.”
Could today really be the day? Word from J.
“Day #13: Closing in on a full two weeks no hot water at D.C.’s highest traffic gym. Will it actually get fixed? Stay tuned.”

Alright everyone, I’m taking bets. How many days until there’s hot water again? I pay $70 a month for a basic gym membership at Washington Sports Club in Columbia Heights.
Day #3: They’ve printed new signs – impressive. Real progress over here at WSC Columbia Heights
Day #5: I really want to talk about “heavy volume of use.” This gym is in a city center – you advertise nonstop going into the New Year and then fail miserably to serve new members.
I’d like to note the staff are wonderful, competent people but the institution could be doing more to service their regular customers who are getting price gouged due to lack of competition (i.e. basic operational functions).”

From the Adams Morgan Listserv:
“Like the hotel, the Club is in preview mode. This Saturday we’re hosting a free community class at 10 am. The event is our Signature “Urban Athlete” class that’s a mix of sports conditioning and strength training. Space is limited, so please register here.
Urban Athletic Club offers neighborhood Memberships, Group Classes, Personal Training, and Community classes. Also, keep an eye out for a run club, roof-top yoga, and BYOB bike classes (that’s bike, not beer!).
