From an email:

“The Uptown will continue its weekend morning movie series that started in December with a new slate of films starting this Saturday, Jan 6 and Sunday, Jan. 7. Sing, the animated 2016 film featuring the voices of Scarlett Johannson, Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon and Seth Macfarlane, will run at 10:00am both days.(Yes, for anyone remembering 10:30 start times in December, this is earlier to accommodate the still-running Star Wars at the Uptown the rest of the day)

Here’s the line-up for future films, too: (more…)

The awesome new Klingle Valley Trail getting a bit of the Metropolitan Branch Trail treatment…

From the Cleveland Park listserv December 28th:

“Today at approximately 12:25 pm while walking up the Klingle bike path and nearing the Connecticut Avenue bridge, I heard a noise and turned around to see a silver car bearing down on me and my dog. I jumped out of the way and it sped past — going dangerously fast for conditions (around 30 mph at least). I yelled, waved my arms and screamed, but it didn’t slow down. A runner asked if I was okay and asked if I got the license plate — I hadn’t. He sped up trying to get close enough to see the license.

I called 911 as soon as I stopped shaking and reported it. On the way home (no lingering at 22 degrees to chat with 911), I saw a young man who’d been walking in the woods — he’d seen the car, described it as “seriously speeding” and said he thought it was a Toyota. Agreed it was silver.

I called 911 again when I got inside — they are sending an officer to take the report.

The fact is: THERE ARE NO EFFECTIVE BARRIERS TO CARS DRIVING ON THE BIKE PATH.”

And then on December 31st:

“Car on Klingle Trail New Year`s Eve. There is no visible marker and driver told us she was directed there by Google. Yikes.”

All is not lost my Cleveland Park cousins – while Ripple was a big loss – Al Volo to the rescue!! I stopped by on Saturday and was told they soft opened Friday night (early word on the Cleveland Park listserve is that they are understandably working out a few kinks in service but the food was delicious and the folks were incredibly friendly, and they were kid friendly too.) I personally can confirm the kindness of the people there. It’s very easy to tell when folks are genuinely nice and I’m happy to say that was evident here. Also the space really looks terrific:

Al Volo’s current hours are 5-10pm Sunday to Thursday and 5pm to midnight Friday and Saturday.  In about a month they’ll be opening up for brunch and lunch as well as a to-go pasta bar.  Updates when that happens, in the meantime check out lots more photos after the jump. (more…)

Back in November we learned a Target would be replacing Petco in Sam’s Park & Shop. I stopped in on Saturday and was told that their last day would be January 22nd. I got 20% off cartridge replacements for my fish tank filter. Updates on Target as they release more info.

Ed. Note: Not all is dim in Cleveland Park, I’ll be posting about Al Volo‘s opening in a half hour.

But in other closing news – the Artisan lamp shop is also on the way out (thanks to Sarah and Lindsey for sending):
