Washington, DC

1800 M Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

Just wanted to let you know there was some crazy shit going down at 18th and M, NW last night. People within the 1800M building received the following message.

Then the DC Fire Department told everyone to enter the building emergency shelters. Fire trucks were blocking off M St. We thought we’d be in for a long night.

Luckily, 10 minutes later we were given the all clear.

Lo and behold. This morning we find out the following from our courageous news team at Fox 5:

“All clear, sounds like someone may have pooped in the elevator.” Read More

Bike lockers at Eastern Market

“Dear PoPville,

I’m looking for some advice regarding safe, indoor overnight bicycle parking in DC. I carpool into work and keep my bike in the office to ride around during the day, but I was recently told I couldn’t store it overnight there any longer.

Are there any safe, indoor spaces to park a bike overnight and on weekends in DC? Preferably close to the downtown area if possible.
