From Old Europe:

“Dear friends and patrons of Old Europe,

On Monday afternoon, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that starting at 10 PM, all restaurants and bars in DC would be temporarily closed for dine-in service. Old Europe is of course, no exception, so in order to ensure you can still get your German food fix, we are shifting to DELIVERY AND TAKEOUT SERVICE ONLY.

At the moment, the restaurant will be open for orders from a limited menu from 11 AM until 8 PM. As we announced in the previous email, delivery through us is FREE now with no minimum! We are also partnered with third-party delivery apps Doordash and UberEats. Please see below for more details. Read More


“Dear PoPville,

My dog (Fern) was attacked by a very large Husky/Malamut named “Romeo” in Glover Park on Saturday.

Romeo, apparently, has attacked multiple dogs at dog parks in Glover Park and Palisades. I found this out at the Vet where Fern is getting stitched up and has a skull crack/fracture. Read More
