Just wanted to give readers a heads up about a scam we encountered while driving home on Valentine’s Day. We were stopped at a red light, and the man in the car next to us honked at us several times and signaled to us to roll down our window. I did, and he said my front right tire was “wobblying really bad” and I needed to pull over ASAP. (more…)

“Wanted to know if they are changing both locations to this new concept, or if the Florida Ave one is staying Far East Taco Grille. (Fingers crossed they keep the Florida Ave location, I love their tacos!)
The folks from Far East Taco tell me: (more…)

I just read Capitol Hill Corner‘s report Saturday Flea Market Surrenders License to Operate on 300 Block of 7th Street:
“Thursday afternoon, Barry Margeson, Eastern Market Manager, announced that the Department of General Services (DGS) license allowing the Saturday flea market to occupy the 300 block of 7th Street on Saturdays had expired on December 1, 2018 and “is terminated.” The message stated, “On February 7, 2019, DGS will advertise a Request for Proposals (RFP) for management of the 300 block of 7th Street on Saturdays.”
It seems to say that Eastern Market flea market will be only operating on Sundays from now on…
I hope the word gets out so that the community can find a way to keep it open!”
