Washington, DC

Thanks to Andy for sending the update above.

To all who sent me this video in the first place – I will never forgive you.

Update from the Washington Post:

“The inspector dinged the shop for a handful of mostly minor violations, including no soap or paper towels at the hand-washing sink, a dirty can opener and “two dead roaches,” according to the inspection report.

“There were no indications of rat droppings or anything inside the establishment,” said Alison Reeves, a spokeswoman for the health department.

(The inspector arrived Friday afternoon, and Dupont Pizza is back in business.)

The owner said the video dates back at least three years, and maybe longer.”


From MPD:

“The third district is currently investigating a shooting. A victim has been transported to an area hospital from the 1400 block of Girard St NW with non life threatening gunshot wounds to the leg. Although the victim was found on Girard St, at this time we do not know where the incident actually took place and are continuing to investigate. No crime scene has been located yet.

Anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099.”

A few readers reported last night: “At least one helicopter with search light was circling Capitol Hill/Eastern Market last night, starting at 9:30 PM and lasting well past midnight. Any idea what was going on?”

From MPD around 11:15pm: “STABBING/2000 block of O ST NW/LOF B/M 5’6″, LAST SEEN ON A RED SCOOTER EASTBOUND O ST NW/5269″

Alas, that placard for a proposed Wahlburgers was posted back in 2016 and the deal fell through in May of 2018.

Up the block coming soon signage did get posted (thanks to Alex for sending) for The Admiral, coming to the old James Hoban’s space. Stay tuned for updates there.
