“Porter Street, NW. Cars hit were in direction of rock creek/beach drive!”

A reader reports:

“Monday night at 1am a metro bus collided into 11 parked cars on Porter Street. I woke up at 1am to a huge crash and looked outside my window from my apartment building on Quebec Street, but didn’t see anything but the top of the metro bus. I found out this morning from my apartment building that the bus collided into the cars. I don’t know how much damage happened but I haven’t been able to find any information besides what my apartment building had sent the residents. I don’t know if anyone was hurt on the bus but sounds like so far just cars were damaged.”

From a press release:

“Bindaas, with two locations at 3309 Connecticut Avenue, NW, and within The Shops at 2000 PENN, 2000 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, is pleased to announce the introduction of a new collection of Regional Curry Bowls. Created by James Beard award-winning Group Executive Chef Vikram Sunderam, the new menu addition encourages guests to select one featured bowl filled with a tempting Indian feast, for an affordable $14. Each curry bowl showcases a collection of spices, which will raise the diner’s body’s core temperature, aiding in digestion and increasing blood circulation which helps one stay toasty in frigid temperatures. Bindaas’ new Regional Curry Bowls menu will be available at both locations, exclusively Monday through Saturday during the month of February. Read More


Thanks to Aseel for sending word about the coming soon notice from School of Rock: “For over a decade, School of Rock has taught guitar, bass, drums, vocals, and keys through an innovative performance-based method.

What are you up to this weekend? We're celebrating ten years of the Weygandt Wines retail store in Cleveland Park! Many of you already know that Peter Weygandt has been importing wines to the United States since 1987, gaining a national and international reputation for the quality of his selections. While it all started with France, Peter has since expanded his portfolio to include Italian, German, Austrian, Australian, and Spanish wines, and he now represents more than 100 producers. The Weygandt Wines retail store was the next natural step. As you have experienced, the store aims to showcase the value, quality, and diversity of wines in Peter's portfolio, as well as highlight the vision of the producers behind them. All of the wines in the store are produced using sustainable, organic, or biodynamic methods by talented people who are passionate about viticulture and winemaking. Their care and dedication is directly reflected in the wines they produce, and represent why Peter's selections stand apart from the rest. So now, ten years later, we'd like to thank you–our customers–for supporting this vision to bring quality, artisanal wines to the Washington, DC area with a special Saturday tasting sale featuring wines from six of our longest-tenured portfolio producers! It's a chance to relive our shop's journey by revisiting some of our first favorites, all in the company of friends and neighbors.
