Aha!! A few weeks ago we noted that it looked like a new restaurant was coming to the former Creme space on 14th. And indeed one is – it’s gonna be Rooster & Owl. Despite the fact that the name will obviously be savaged in the comments, [Ed. Note: Personally as a fan of both roosters and owls, I’m rather keen on the name] this sounds very very promising.

A reader reported around 8pm Saturday:
“just heard what sounded like an automatic weapon firing off by 14/Irving. Anyone else reporting that? Heard from inside my apt.”
Another: “I drove right by this in an uber – heard the shots and saw 3 men running on Columbia road, almost hit them with the car. Around 8pm.”
Just got word that an F45 Gym is coming to Columbia Heights in the former Signal Bank space on Irving Street, NW in the space just west of Lou’s City Bar.
F45 currently has a D.C. location at 1020 U Street, NW. Their website says:
“F45 Training is the new training technique leaving competition and clients gasping for air. F45 is the most innovative, challenging and systemised team training workout in the world. Come and train like the stars at F45 Training.”
Stay tuned for an opening date.

Thanks to Matt for sending: “VIP Parking at Cesar Rosario School.”
A reader reported at 9:50am:
“I live on the same block as the church and 20 min ago felt three explosions, rattle the windows of my apartment. I went outside and the street is blocked off to Oak NW, fire fighting at the Education building of he church. Hoping that everyone that was inside is alright.”
DC Fire and EMS reported:
“Cause remains undetermined. Church services not in progress when fire occurred.” (more…)
Hi, so I’m not sure how I stumbled upon this a few weeks ago, but I did and I’ve been feeling selfish keeping it to myself ever since.
Are you ready? (more…)
