“Dear PoPville,

I wanted to alert you to gunshots fired that took place at lunch time Friday right in front of the Shaw playground at 7th and P St. You can see the yellow markers showing each shell casing. A total of 6 shots were fired. When I drove by and asked the police what happened all they said was “destruction of property.” I was so disappointed by this response that I walked back demanding to speak with the office in charge. Only when I pushed did they admit it shots were fired right in front of the playground. The even more concerning thing was that they seemed to be cleaning the scene up quickly so it was as if nothing happened. A few minutes later all police presence was gone.”

5405 Georgia Avenue, NW looking south towards Macombo Lounge at Jefferson Street

Back in December we shared some mouth watering Scuttlebutt that the folks from Bloomingdale’s Showtime Bar, across the street from Boundary Stone on Rhode Island Ave., had plans to open up a second spot in Brightwood Park on Georgia Ave (photo above.) [Showtime opened in Bloomingdale back in 2013 and is perennially placed on all the ‘best of’ lists around town.] A week ago I reported that Neptune Room was coming to 5405 Georgia Avenue, NW and because the liquor license placard listed the prolific Andrew Kline as attorney, I suspected this might be the rumored Showtime spot. And now a local food blog confirms it is indeed the Showtime folks: “Team Showtime confirmed”.
