My Fellow Charlie’s Place volunteers and I were overwhelmed with the donations we received from the PoPville community for our Thanksgiving dinner last month. In fact, the donations allowed us to cover not only that Thanksgiving meal, but also our upcoming Christmas dinner on Dec. 20. That’s why we’re not asking for dinner donations this time, we just want you to sit down and eat with us. Come out to see Charlie’s Place, and have a delicious meal with the rest of your DC community.
Charlie’s Place provides meals and counseling to our homeless DC neighbors in Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan and beyond. For our Christmas meal this year we’ve decided to expand the guest list to not just our homeless DC neighbors, but also our Charlie’s Place staff and other Charlie’s Place DC neighbors like you.
The dinner is this Thursday, Dec. 20 at 6 p.m. Please RSVP here so we know how many to expect. Charlie’s Place is located at 1820 Connecticut Ave. NW.

Thanks to Jessica for sending. I called to confirm and their phone number had already been disconnected. Zen Taco opened in the former Custom Fuel pizza spot (and Upper Crust Pizzeria before them) back in January.
Looks like the number of restaurant closures in D.C. is approaching 90 for 2018.

A couple of weeks ago, many of us, were devastated to learn that Soapstone Market would be closing at the end of the year. Someone in the comments noted that the space had already been leased. And kudos to you for that scuttlebutt sir/madam because leased it is!
From an email:
“Uptown Market is thrilled to bring our neighborhood market concept to Van Ness in spring 2019. You’ll find locally sourced and thoughtfully curated offerings like our fresh seafood market, butcher shop, artisan creamery, coffee bar and more. We look forward to meeting you and serving the Van Ness neighborhood, we hope you’ll come to shop and stay awhile.

I’m sure that you have read about the deal that Dan Snyder/the NFL is trying to jam through Congress to set up a new Redskins stadium at the RFK location. Charles Allen, Ward 6 Councilman, has started a petition for those who oppose such a move and any DC taxpayer money being used to fund such a stadium. Any chance you would post a link to the petition for those who might also be interested? Just FYI, I’m not affiliated in any way with his office — just a very concerned citizen who might just give up all hope on this city if Mayor Bowser throws away millions of my tax dollars to fund a stadium for possibly the worst franchise in all of American sports.
I caught the city’s towing squad clearing my block of parking offenders. They’re so eager to swoop in on these cars they’re lined up.
I don’t know how many tickets these poor folks had. But forcing someone to pay hundreds to get theirs car out of the towing yard on top of whatever tickets they owe is an F’ed up way to do someone the week before Christmas. (more…)

It’s with great sadness that I write to you that my beloved CVS pharmacist at the 2129 14th St NW location, Annie, recently passed away.
Last week when my prescriptions got messed up I angrily asked where Annie was because she’s the only one at this pharmacy that could get my medicines right. Admittedly, I have some annoying medicines that require extra work, special orders, and atypical amounts that trip up most pharmacists. But not Annie. Over some of these weird quirks and issues, I grew closer to her and really appreciated how hardworking she was and able to solve almost any issue with ease and a smile.
When I asked where she was, I received a strange answer from one of the technicians–“she’s not here anymore.” (more…)
