“Dear PoPville,

What’s the deal at Sylvan Cafe…that place was really good, and then awful. Was there an ownership change? Went in for Coffee and it is one of the worst coffees I have ever had. Also heard there were rumors that Windows was purchased, any validity to that?”

Anyone know what’s up on either front? Any fans of those New Jersey bagels?

“Dear PoPville,

I wanted to give you a bit of background on the development at the corner of 2nd and S Sts NW.

“Dear PoPville,

Just a heads up, “Dr. Doug Scott” has now shown up in Bloomingdale on Quincy Place NW. He just rang our doorbell with the same scam story about leaving his suit jacket with his keys, phone, and money in a coworkers car. When he realized he wasn’t going to get money from us, he requested to use a phone to call Whitman Walker, which, we declined. (more…)
