11th and Park Road, NW
I believe it must have slipped off at or around the northwest corner of Park Road NW and 11th Street NW (outside of Meridian Pint). I’m crushed by the loss of this very sentimental item and if by some miracle one of your readers finds it I would be eternally grateful if they could notify you [[email protected]] or return it to Meridian Pint. It is a tungsten wedding band with a subtle rose gold inlay. There is some sort of manufacturer’s mark on the inside but otherwise no markings. Thank you!”

Thanks to Wendy for sending word that Columbia Heights’ new Old Navy had opened last night in DC USA. I know it’s not a local cilantro purveyor that some have been pining for but still pretty good news.

From a press release:

Bombay Street Food evokes the sights and sounds of old Bombay, bringing the flavors of both traditional and street food vendors to the Washington, DC dining landscape. After opening award winning restaurants in Northern Virginia (Curry Mantra , London Curry House and 1947), now Sheikh will focus all of his attention on bringing his long time dream of the Bombay-based street food concept to reality. Sheikh and his business partners/chefs Pradip Shrestha and Dolly Khan recently traveled to Bombay for ten days to completely immerse themselves in the culture and do further research on the menu.
