A reader reports:
“I guess this is acceptable moving protocol now? The worst part – it takes up the sidewalk (no one with a wheel chair can pass) AND an entire parking spot on the Wednesday side of the road during street sweeping days!
I plan to clean it up tonight – but this is definitely ridiculous.
*Note – I saw these bad Samaritans on film & 311 has been called*”

A.G. passes on this incredibly disturbing report from the Truxton Circle NextDoor:
“I was assaulted by a woman outside the Valero on Florida yesterday (Monday) at around 6:35pm. The attack was very violent.

From a press release:
“Boundary Stone’s sixth annual barrel-aged beer competition will take place on Tuesday, September 10 from 6:30pm – 9pm, with VIP entry at 5:30pm. After five years of pitting local breweries against each other in a DC Beer Week competition to see who can create the best barrel-aged brew, the Battle of the Barrel-Aged Beer is getting an extra kick this time around by pairing each of the six participating breweries with a liquor barrel from a local distillery.
General admission tickets for the event will be $30 in advance and $35 at the door and include a four ounce taster of all six beers in the contest, a voting token, and a full-sized draft beer from last year’s champions 3 Stars Brewery. VIP tickets are $60 and include all of the above as well as a Brewers Meet & Greet with complimentary snacks from 5:30pm to 6:30pm, a t-shirt with original artwork and a commemorative glass. Read More
