“Dear PoPville,

I was crossing the intersection at 17th Street NW and S Street NW, near the S Street Dog Park with a co-worker. A car with about 4 or 5 young white men were at the stop sign, honking at people walking and giving them the middle finger.

My co-worker and I had crossed the street and as they drove through the intersection towards us. They yelled out what I believe to be, “Hey you!” Throwing a full bottle of Vitamin water at us, which, was clearly intended to hit either of us in the head but, it missed. I didn’t catch their license plate number but, it was a Maryland license plate.

So, folks beware, a car with Maryland license plate (think it was a Honda Civic) of about 4 or 5 white men are driving around the city being terrible and assaulting folks. This happened around 5:20pm.”

Thanks to Josh for passing on word from Scion:

“Scion Dupont will permanently close for business Tuesday August 7, 2018. As we approached the culmination of our ten year lease we have been able to reflect upon what an honor it has been to serve the Dupont Circle community but also recognize the time has come to make way for something new and exciting! It has been our greatest honor to be a part of this neighborhood and we will miss the many friendships we have made over craft beer, burgers and of course, brunch! (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I recently moved out of my apartment and jumped through all the appropriate hoops to get the street parking spots in front of my building reserved for a moving truck. My permits were approved well before my move, and I posted and verified the signs one week prior to my move date (signs must be posted a minimum of 72 hours in advance).

Despite all this, two cars were still parking in my reserved zone at 9am on the morning of my move! One had been there all night, and the other parked sometime that morning. Ultimately, I had to get both towed because A) I had hired movers to show up at 10am and B) there was nowhere else to park the truck without blocking the street. (more…)
