“If you find yourself by 6th St. SE and Independence Ave SE, walking to Eastern Market, look for an alleyway that is called Browns Court. It is a delightful combination of rowhouses that were built circa 1908, renovated carriage houses, and modem condominiums.”

12th and Maryland Ave, NE

Liz reported Sunday morning: “This morning around 7:30am my husband saw some folks riding horses on Maryland Ave. and F St. NE. They weren’t wearing any uniforms and didn’t exactly say what they were doing other than “going for a ride.” Does anyone know what that was about?”

Thanks to Shannon Quinn for passing on the photo above from around noon on Sunday.

The Bajan Sensation notes: “There are groups of horse owners in PG County that ride into the city regularly, especially on the weekends”

Ed. Note: Last week learned that Ghibellina, formerly on 14th Street, NW had moved to Ivy City.

Thanks to Beth for passing on “I just saw this on their website – SO SAD. I think we knew this was going to happen but still it hurts!”:

“Dear Acqua al 2 family, friends and neighbors:

It is with a heavy heart that we have had to close Acqua al 2 at our Capital Hill location in Washington, DC. It has been a true joy serving you all and getting to know you for the last 10 years.

We are, however, excited to announce that we have found a way to keep the spirit of Acqua al 2 in the neighborhood though the Acqua al 2 Sauce Shop! Read More

“One of the lesser known alleys in Washington, DC is F Street Terrace (originally known as Marks Court) on Capitol Hill. Along with Gessford Court (which I highlighted last week), F Street Terrace is one of the original alley dwellings in DC. Within this backstreet, there is a much smaller U-shaped alley that is known as Archibald Walk. You might have heard of Archibald Walk and its controversial treehouse a few years ago. Together, F Street Terrace and Archibald Walk make a beautiful little oasis right in the heart of Capitol Hill.”
