“Originally founded in 1858 by C. A. Snow, the publisher of the National Intelligencer (DC’s first newspaper which ran from 1800 to 1870), Snow’s Court is one of the original alley dwellings in the district. In its earlier years, the alley was home to Irish immigrants, wounded Union soliders, and freed African-Americans who moved to DC at the end of the Civil War. Today, these renovated rowhouses are a reminder of DC’s rich history. The alley is located between 25th and 26th Streets NW, south of K St. NW, near GWU.”

“Dear PoPville,

A friend walked by Filter and he told me the espresso machine and most of the stuff inside was gone? Are they closing? moving? I know they have been closed since the beginning of the pandemic, with that part of town with very few workers, nothing would surprise me.”

I stopped by over the weekend and saw this sign on their door: Read More

Thanks to Emily for passing on from Bon Matcha:

“After careful thought and consideration, we regret to say that Bôn Matcha will open its I St windows for the last time on December 13, 2020. For the past three years it has been our great joy and privilege to celebrate our heritage as Asian Americans with all of you. Thank you for letting us be a part of your routines for self-care, your weekend treats, and your midday breaks. Though we close our windows for now, we confess that we don’t believe this is goodbye, but rather, until next time. We have been blessed to be a part of your stories, and we promise that we have many more we’d like to tell.
