“Dear PoPville,

We were just at the Columbia Heights dog park (Sunday) and, soon after we arrived, a larger pounced on our terrier, Peanut, and they got into a little scuffle (fortunately he’s okay, just a little nick on his nose!). Talk about terrifying, though, and, once we managed to get the two dogs apart, we just kind of stood there stupefied. Read More

A reader reported around 3:30pm: “Lots of gunshots at the corner of 14th and Ogden (approximately). I was 2 blocks away and heard them. Looks like someone got hit.”

“Dear PoPville,

I was parking and clipped a biker in Columbia Heights. He swerved but kept going and i tried to follow him on foot (I was a little flustered and apparently didn’t remember that I had a car and could follow him- which admittedly prob also would have been sketchy). I want to see if his bike is damaged or if there is anything I can do. I bike a lot so I am mortified i was that person.”

If this was you and would like to speak to OP please email me at [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch.

On Friday January 31st, 2020 we shared the scuttlebutt that shook (some of) our worlds. And so concludes the magnificent roller coaster ride of when will Taco Bell Cantina open in Columbia Heights. We got our first report at 10:58am from C., “columbia heights taco bell is open, my roommate was just inside the actual restaurant.” Thanks to Tenzin and everyone else for sending the good word. Tenzin notes: “alcoholic drinks are dine-in only!”

Phil with the magic: “It’s true, taco bell lives!” Read More

Update:

although:

Ian writes: “I heard Taco Bell Cantina was opening at 11 a.m. today.

I went at 10:30 a.m. to try to nab their inaugural Crunchwrap Supreme, but an employee told me they didn’t get everything they needed on their truck last night, so, “if not today, tomorrow.

STAY TUNED.
