“Dear PoPville,

Yesterday around 8:15 a.m., a dump truck going fast downhill toward a 33 bus stopped at Wisconsin and 34th Street veered off the road and onto the sidewalk, barreling across the sidewalk in front of Hardy Middle School and narrowly missing several pedestrians who scattered to get out of its way. The driver of the truck then briefly stopped on 34th and then continued southward. I called 911, as did others on the scene (I think). It’s unclear whether the driver lost control or drove into the sidewalk intentionally. No idea if police ever stopped the driver.”

“Dear PoPville,

I am saddened to report that driving by the former Neams grocery and Marvelous Market in Georgetown (corner of Wisconsin and P across from Thomas Sweet), I saw that this property is becoming a Chase bank.

This is such sad news as this property, though long vacant has so much potential including parking and outdoor seating space. Do people even go to banks anymore? This seems like such a waste of a neighborhood gem.” Read More

From an email:

“Tonight, The Tavern by sweetgreen, the first-ever market from the salad chain focusing on all things fresh and local, will launch its sweetflow walk-up window garden out of its storefront off of M Street in Georgetown.

sweetflow, sweetgreen’s beloved, fan-favorite frozen yogurt that disappeared off menus in 2014, made its return last year at The Tavern with a upgrade as the company partnered with local purveyor Dolcezza Gelato to make the frozen treat even more delicious. Read More
