Last night Haleigh Hoffman tweeted:

“PLEASE be careful while riding scooters and don’t ride them at night. A man just face planted a few feet in front of my car. I had to call 911 because he wasn’t initially responding and bleeding from his head.

His face was pretty messed up and he’s been taken to a nearby hospital. I think he’ll be fine, but It was really scary and I’m shaken up.

scooters aren’t a reasonable mode of transportation at night. It could have been really bad. I could have run this man over if I hadn’t have been paying really close attention.”

I hope the guy is ok and to be honest I hadn’t thought about the safety of riding at night. So I was wondering what you guys think. For those that ride – does it feel safe to ride at night?

Ed. Note: I stopped by to get these photos yesterday and it was the biggest emergency response I have ever seen. These photos don’t do justice to how many responders where there. There were at least two ladder truck, 3 or 4 pumper trucks, multiple police cars, and other fire department vehicles.

Thanks to Eric for passing on from St. Arnold’s Cleveland Park & The Abbey yesterday:

“Hey everyone! Unfortunately there was a large fire at our Cleveland park location this afternoon.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We will be closed until further notice at Cleveland Park. Read More

Back in April we learned the new pizza spot coming to the old Chipotle space would be a Tino’s. A liquor license placard has now been posted:

“A new Retailer’s Class C Restaurant with a seating capacity of 49 and Total Occupancy Load of 60. Sidewalk Café with 14 seats.

Tino’s website is now live too:

“Tino’s pizzeria concept was inspired by Chef, Logan Griffith’s pizza making passion and intrigue to create a traditional yet modern Neapolitan style pizza. The name Tino’s was inspired by Logan and wife Maria’s newly arrived son Constantino.”

Check out their menus here.

Good progress on the inside too: Read More

Bummer from the Cleveland Park listserv:

“I was at Cafe Deluxe last night [Wednesday] enjoying $8 burger night when the server informed me that the restaurant will be closing in 25 days. Apparently the landlord wanted to increase the rent substantially. This is a big loss for the neighborhood in my opinion!”

Ed. Note: I’ve emailed Cafe Deluxe for more details but haven’t heard back yet. We judged them back in 2011. You can see their menu here. Updates as more is known.
