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


2100 P Street, NW

Lemon Cuisine of India opened back in December 2016, previously home to Crios Mexican.

Thomas reports:

“It was one of mine and my wife’s go-to take-out spots. I tried calling to place an order Monday, and got no response, figured it was just a one-off issue. They’re normally closed on Tuesdays, so when I called Wednesday night and still got no answer, I got suspicious. Read More


“Dear PoPville,

I’m hosting a Happy Hour at Sorellina on Valentine’s Day on behalf of Voices on the Border, a small but mighty NGO that works on human rights and development in El Salvador. I’m a teacher and on their board of directors. We’re raising $1000 for a teacher’s salary in a small community in El Salvador. See flyer (above) for more information about the teacher, Maria Orellana. People can donate online to Maria’s cause here. Sorellina will donate a portion of a specialty cocktail to Maria, and we’ll have a computer set up to do donations on site. Come to Sorellina (Friday 5-8pm) and start your Valentine’s Day off by supporting Maria. Have a Heart for a Teacher on Valentine’s Day!” Read More

Ed. Note: This space was most recently home to Flipside Filipino restaurant which closed in January.

Thanks to the folks at Cafe Mia for letting us know they’ve opened and sharing their Menu (PDF) with us. “Our specialty is Peruvian style rotisserie chicken but we serve other great items as well.” They also have a Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwich served on brioche for $6 :)

Connecticut and Florida Ave, NW

Thanks to Nana for sending word:

“The big ol Rite Aid on the intersection of Connecticut and Florida Ave is turning into a Walgreens later this month according to signs in the store. The employees there told me that it is going to close for a week later this month while they change it over. So nobody be alarmed when it’s closed for a bit. Right now there are massive sales (30-70 percent off a ton of stuff) there while they (presumably) try to move a lot of inventory before the move.” Read More
