From an email:

“With indoor dining unavailable in DC for the next few weeks, we thought now would be a great time to highlight two perfect (locally owned!) outdoor dining options in the District. The Pub & The People (Bloomingdale) and its sister restaurant, Present Company Public House (Mount Vernon Triangle/Chinatown) offer spacious private fire pits and table top heaters on their open-air patios.

Florida and North Capitol Street, NE

“Dear PoPville,

Know anything about this? One of my neighbors sent a photo of this sign going up at Florida and North Cap (old NY Pizza place that’s had chainlink fencing around the lot got a while). Looks like Aunteaboba’s Instagram talks about a “DC location coming soon,” but wondering if there’s any other scuttlebutt?” Read More

“Dear PoPville,

It was lost somewhere on 1st street NW between big bear cafe and children’s National hospital when I was walking my dog. Would love to get it back! It was a gift when I was born from my grandpa.”


“Dear PoPville,

Last night someone ditched a large box of tools, small blue cooler, and a hand vacuum on the sidewalk in front of my house in Lamond-Riggs/Takoma. The tools look like they may belong to an electrician or a contractor that does something similar, and judging from the amount of things in there, I have a feeling they are very missed right now.

If anyone is able to help identify who might be missing these tools, I would love for them to be reunited!”


“Dear PoPville,

I am wondering if the community knows where/when there are holiday toy drives in the dc area?”

From Boundary Stone (116 Rhode Island Ave, NW):

“Come see us one more time!

Our Annual Toy Drive with Atlas Brew Works is needed more than ever this year! We will open our doors on DEC 16th & 17th from 4pm-7pm. ~ Bring an unwrapped toy and we will give you a free beer!

You can’t drink it here but you CAN take it home!”

From DC Fire & EMS: “Don’t forget that all of #DCsBravest firehouses are drop off points for @ToysforTots_DC. We accept new and unwrapped toys. No toy that can be construed as a weapon will be accepted.”
