Washington, DC

Thanks to all who messaged us about this slightly unsettling scene last night:

Apparently it was just a siren that was malfunctioning from a firetruck. Good thing we bought all that toilet paper.

21st and P Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

I was in the new Valley Brook Tea in Dupont this morning and the man behind the register told me that I was the first customer of the day (it was already 10:30) and that people seem to be avoiding his store since the local coronavirus news intensified. He said someone even walked in, saw his face, turned around, and walked out. He got a little emotional telling me about it which made me both angry and sad. It seems ridiculous and xenophobic on top of the fact that everyone in there is so nice and the tea is authentic and delicious! Also a great space/workspace that’s a huge improvement on the former Starbucks.

What began as a hat shop in historic Union Station – drawing famous hat lovers from Fugazi to the Clintons to the Queen of England – has evolved into a thriving neighborhood institution with two locations, devoted customers, and a diverse collection of goods far beyond just hats.

“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
