Spotted at two different houses in Cleveland Park.
Thanks to Stuart for sending from Cleveland Park:
“A huge tree was taken down at 35th and Ordway and they put a shrine to the tree on the stump.”

From an email:
“I wanted to give you a follow- up to the previous statement that we are taking over the patio previously occupied by Firehook Bakery. That takeover starts this Friday August 28th for dinner at 5pm. Every night, we will have happy hour from 5pm- 7pm, and on Saturday and Sunday we will be offering brunch with bottomless mimosas, bellinis, and Prosecco.
In addition, we are offering that the community use the patio as a COVID- friendly workspace. Read More
UPDATE: “The artist is instagram user @perfectionisht and the project is his quarantine coping strategy.”
About 2 months ago I was walking in Cleveland Park and I found a miniature polymer clay version of “The Scream” tucked into an empty apartment promotional box. I found it delightful. Cut to ~3wks ago when I was telling this patient about my funny little find and asked “oh, you mean the one in Rock Creek?” And my brain exploded. So far I’ve physically found two but I have confirmation of 2 more around Tregaron and Klingle Valley. Read More
“Metro activates severe weather plan for Hurricane Isaias impacts, Cleveland Park Station to be closed Tuesday
Cleveland Park Station will be closed, as the station’s entrances are located in an area that is prone to flash flooding. The station will reopen when conditions allow. Customers should use Van Ness or Woodley Park stations as alternate boarding locations. Bus service is available along Connecticut Ave. NW.
The north entrance at King Street Station will also be closed Tuesday due to the potential for flooding. Customers should use the station’s south entrance instead.”
Huge followup to the news that Firehook will be closing July 30th. Well this could be a huge score for nearby Italian restaurant Al Volo at 3417 Connecticut Ave, NW. Thanks to ANC Commissioner Beau Finley for passing on this letter the landlords. Looks like huge things are in the works: Read More

When we spoke about Firehook’s coming in closure in Cleveland Park (it still stings) lots of folks emailed me that Coppi’s had closed/was closing too. While still sad, word on the street is that this closure may have happened with or without the virus. Again, still sad and a bummer to see another vacant space on the strip. Read More
Earlier this morning when we posted about the coming closure of Firehook in Cleveland Park – a historical video gem emerged of the previous tenant (which is why they had such a great back patio.) Thanks to Justin Rood for passing on this extraordinary video found on Youtube about Roma from 1997:
“The last year in the life of the Roma, a legendary restaurant in Washington, DC that was a Cleveland Park staple from 1932 to its closing auction in 1997, along with adjoining tavern Poor Roberts. Posted in memory of owner Bobby Abbo.
