“Dear PoPville,

On Wednesday, I was driving down Whitehurst Freeway in Georgetown (just south of 27th St). The sewer grate in the middle of the exit lane popped up as I drove over it and my brand new car is now essentially totaled. Is there any way to pursue recourse with the city? I’m very frustrated this happened! The strut and suspension in my car is broken. I hope the grate was fixed bc I imagine it’s very unsafe and hurting other people’s cars too!!!!”


Thanks to Rebecca for sending: “Almost stumbled upon this nearly 5 foot long black snake on the streets of Georgetown…… too exciting!”

From a press release:

“Whatever will they think of next? Jack Mayer and Jack Walten (the “Jacks”), founders of Sea Suite Cruises, who brought the first pedal boat bars to the Potomac with the Paddle Club, have launched Potomac Tiki Club, an 18-passenger party-on-the-water craft sailing out of Georgetown Harbor.

The teal-blue floating tiki bar operating with an engine, unlike the Paddle Club boats that require some passenger peddling to move, takes 90-minute cruises towards the Key Bridge and Rosslyn, past the Twin Sisters, circles back to pass Riverview landmarks like Georgetown University, The Kennedy Center, Watergate Hotel, the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument.

Thanks to EJ for sending: “It’s looks like Kabul Castle Kabob is currently being built out on 28th Street NW near the intersection of M Street NW, directly across from George’s King of Falafel. Not much other information other than the banner.”

Stay tuned for more.
