New Driver Or Not…

“Dear PoPville,

Not a great parking job, but it’s okay. Because if you look closely at the rear window, there is a homemade sign that reads “NEW DRIVER.” We were thinking that there should probably also be one that states “NEW PARKER.”

From Civil Cigar Lounge:

“We hate to have to write this, but we need to let the Civil Lounge family know, that this Thursday, September 26, 2019 will be the final night of service at Civil Cigar Lounge. Over the last 7 years we have had the pleasure of creating one of the best cigar lounges for our guests. We have had some exceptional staff, that provided good, comfortable service to a growing clientele both new-comers and regulars. We will truly miss that interaction.

The Chevy Chase Pavilion had chosen to go in a different direction after losing other service and retail tenants over the last two years. We fought to stay as long as we could, using all legal means at our disposal, but our final hearing didn’t go our way. So we are at the end of this particular road.

We are exploring new opportunities to bring Civil back within the District of Columbia. Read More

River Road and Western Ave, NW

“Dear PoPville,

The playground at Ft Bayard has been closed for renovation with no progress since December. I’m getting nowhere trying to find out who to contact for information.”

Ed. Note: Looks like this is run by the National Park Service, in which case Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton’s office might be the best bet? Anyone know what’s going on here?


Down Goes H&M

Thanks to Reid for sending:

“They shut down the bottom floor (out of 3) about 2 weeks ago and pulled the plug on the rest of the store in the last 48 hours.”
