From the Mayor’s Office:
“Mayor Muriel Bowser showcased plans to design and build the K Street Transitway, a major streetscape project on K Street NW with dedicated bus lanes, enhanced bicycle accessibility, and safer pedestrian intersections. The project is projected to improve bus speeds by 30 percent for an estimated 40,000 daily bus passengers.
“As DC continues to grow and prosper, we need to reimagine our major roadways for the 21st century with infrastructure improvements that make public transportation more efficient and reliable for residents who rely on it,” said Mayor Bowser. “The K Street Transitway project will transform Downtown with dedicated bus lanes, protected bike lanes, redesigned sidewalks, and safer intersections to help keep DC moving and growing.” (more…)
I’ve seen a lot of weird stuff over the years and this might have just skyrocketed to the top. What the hell?
I saw this magazine tied in front of the Suntrust Bank on Columbia and 18th NW yesterday. The magazine cover talked about 100 top women in business I think, and it’s in a rope knot. It’s not a noose knot, but still a weird knot. And it’s with real rope. Someone had to go through some effort. Those poles aren’t short.
I honestly can’t tell if this is problematic but thought I’d let you guys decide.”

Ed. Note: Rejoice textdoc et al, after a long and bloody neighborhood boundary battle I’m ceding back the 3600 of Georgia Ave to Park View. I haven’t anymore fight left in me and at this point I don’t want to confuse folks. So there you have it, I surrender. I surrender.
Thanks to Dan for solving the mystery at the (new/old) Marrakech Moroccan Restaurant space. Not sure what happened to Marrakech but it looks like mr. braxton Bar&Kitchen is taking over the space: (more…)
I live in an apartment building on the corner of Lamont + Mount Pleasant. At 4 a.m., I was awoken by agitated screaming (pretty used to this, living right on the main drag in Mt. P.), but due to the glowing cop car lights, I got out of bed to see what the F happened this time. (more…)

Thanks to Max for sending: “Tio Javier on Barracks Row seems to have undergone some changes overnight.”
Tortuga’s website says:
“The island connection runs deep at Tortuga. Our modern approach to Caribbean cooking, cool-as-can-be staff, and vibrant atmosphere offer an urban oasis, away from the hustle and bustle of DC.” (more…)

Thanks to Andrea for sharing last night:
“big protest at Sheridan Circle, remembering the Armenian genocide. Turkish ambassador residence has counter protesters. Police are starting to close streets.”
Back in 2017 there was a protest in Sheridan Circle that turned violent when “Turkish security personnel” intervened.
