10th and Franklin St, NE

Here’s a great update on the “gourmet food hall with 8-10 independent food vendors, a bar, and a grocery market” coming to Egewood/Brookland. WDCEP posts an interview with the owner:

“Captain Cookie is about to launch a second location and incubator space to help local food businesses scale. Named “Tastemakers” the 9,000 sq ft incubator space will open in Ward 5’s Brookland neighborhood in early September. There will be industrial kitchen space for local food companies, a small grocery store, and another Captain Cookie storefront. The store will feature 6-8 food vendors and have a bar.”

STAY TUNED.

“Dear PoPville,

I live in Brookland and absolutely love it. However, my neighbor across the alleyway does not have running water. As a result, he regularly urinates in the alleyway. He also has guests who have in the past urinated in the alley and defecated in a neighbor’s backyard (not even his own, which somehow bothered me more). I’ve talked to him about this to no avail – the house has a huge overdue water bill that he can’t pay, and it’s way too high for me to consider paying it for my own sanity. I contacted DCRA but they never sent anyone. Any thoughts on how to handle this? Is this even legal, to live without running water?”
