Check out the google maps of that street. (above)”

“Building Permit has been posted it’s only going to be six residential units, no retail

But wait, maybe a Kapnos will come to the old Carolina Restaurant space across the street…

3704 14th Street, NW

Back in June we shared some scuttlebutt about a new Cuban restaurant coming to half of Delicia’s Market at 14th and Quincy St, NW. A new liquor license placard confirms it as Little Havana:

“New Class “C” Restaurant serving Latino-American cuisine. Total Occupancy Load of 60 and seating for 60. Sidewalk Café with 12 seats.”

This ought add another wrinkle to the friendly Taqueria Habanero vs Mezcalero rivalry.

Stay tuned for more on Little Havana as they get closer to opening.

“Dear PoPville,

I live in 16th Street Heights and was rudely awakened shortly after 6 by a helicopter doing low altitude circles this morning…this was followed by a cacophony of sirens about an hour later…any idea what that was all about?”


“Around 610am this morning there was a low flying helicopter circling Petworth. Super loud – it woke me up and made the floors of my apartment vibrate. Anyone have any idea what’s going on?”

Update from MPD:

This was a US Park Police helicopter assisting MPD with an investigation in the 900 block of Shepherd Street, NW.

Not sure if related but last night MPD reported: (more…)
