“Dear PoPville,

Beware of this crazy mid 60s well dressed white man. I got on the bus at Safeway and walked into the middle of a screaming match. I am almost certain that he was the instigator because it was him versus the entire bus. He was mostly screaming at a mid 40s man, but also screamed at women, other passengers, and the bus driver.

From a press release:

“Award-winning Chef & Sommelier Danny Lledó is pleased to announce a new Spanish concept to replace the mezzanine and 2nd floor of Slate Wine Bar, the neighborhood restaurant situated in the heart of Glover Park at 2404 Wisconsin Ave, NW, 20007. Xiquet (pronounced “chee-KETT”) will open in August 2019 with an innovative menu inspired by Lledó’s hometown of Denía in the Valencia region of Spain. Slate Wine Bar will close in July to be reimagined as a fresh new wine bar destination with small plates, updated décor, and expanded cocktail & bar selection. Light plaster and natural wood elements combined with warm marble and textured upholstery will create a fresh and approachable dining experience. The name Xiquet comes from “Xiquet de Casa” which translates to “local kid”, a Valencian nickname given to Lledó from his family and friends. Lledó’s new menu will showcase four to six varieties of paella along with suckling pig, steak and seafood cooked-to-order over an open flame, which will be an integral part of the guests’ dining experience.
