From a press release:

“2020 marks the 30th anniversary of local retailer Proper Topper, which will commemorate the occasion with Throwback Thursday happy hours, weekly drawings, pop-up sales, and a big celebratory bash in June.

Wendy reported about 6:15pm “Southbound Wisconsin at Cathedral. Cars plowed into bus stop”

Lindsey replied: “Same car drove up on the sidewalk and plowed down two railings, a tree and a street sign and then lost its bumper before speeding down a one way street going the wrong way a little before 5pm (20th and Belmont)”


Yikes. Thanks to Sarah for sending Saturday around 10pm:

“There was a flat bed tow truck that had a US postal van on it, and a car that has clearly driven up on the sidewalk, plus signs of a fender bender. Anyone know what happened? Scary to think of a car driving up on the sidewalk!”


Thanks to Crystal for sending: “National Cathedral keeps being awesome!”
