Washington, DC

1330 19th Street, NW

From a press release:

“Buffalo Billiards, one of DC’s most iconic sports bar since 1994, will host a farewell party on August 24 from noon until close. The bittersweet occasion will celebrate 25 years of legendary memories with special Buffalo Billiards memorial t-shirts and giveaways. The event will also feature a Buffalo Billiards photo/selfie wall, music and entertainment, and special pours from Board Room Brewing Company. In July 2019, it was announced that Buffalo Billiards will close as the new landlord, WeWork, did not wish to renew the bar’s lease. Read More


“Dear PoPville,

People moved out of their house on 17th and Q, left this trash since late last week lying on the sidewalk. Do you know what actions we can/should take to get it removed?”

Another reader includes me on a note to their ANC:

“I’m not 100% sure what is going on here, but there has been this disastrous mess outside of the 1500 Block of 17th Street, NW since Thursday! Garbage is literally tossed to the street corner (please see above) probably with the hope that the city will clean it up, which isn’t fair! I’m sure the DC rat population is having a field day with this heaven of fiflth. I live right around the corner and I’ve seen a number of men probably in their late-20’s / early-30’s who periodically party inside and outside of the house. I could care less about that, but what I do care about is this current situation and the fact that they think someone else will come by and clean it up!”

Ed. Note: The ANC promptly replied that they would “engage the DPW inspector”.

Ed. Note: Shop Made In DC just opened a Georgetown location over the weekend and they also have a location at the Wharf in SW Waterfront. They also run the DC History store in the Carnegie Library (colocated with the new Apple store.)

From Shop Made in DC:

“As you know, the lease for our beloved Dupont space is ending on August 31. We are sad to have to leave, but the building is under new ownership and will be in renovation mode for the next year. As much as we have loved our time we are also ready for new adventures.

Up until last week we thought we were moving North of Dupont Circle. On Friday morning, after 2 months of negotiations and planning (on the day we were set to sign) we lost the lease to our new Dupont location.

Our goal is still to relocated Dupont and we need your help. Our mission is built on the concept that we are stronger together so it seemed silly to hold this information and burden in confidence. We need your help.

We are seeking a new space to move our Dupont home. Read More
