From an email:

“Toki Underground, DC’s first ramen house, located on H Street, NE, will soon launch a new menu available exclusively at the Pug, the popular DC bar housed on the ground floor of the building that Toki calls home. Many Toki patrons enjoy a drink at the Pug while waiting for a seat at the popular, yet small, ramen house and this new food menu offers a selection of small bar bites inspired by the flavors of Toki’s full menu. The menu, highlighted below, was designed for those enjoying a drink at the Pug or for Toki guests who want a few bites while waiting for a seat upstairs. There are a variety of snacks, many of which are vegetarian or can be made vegetarian, like the Fried Chicken or Cauliflower Steam Buns. Also on a the menu is Uncle Tony’s Lumpia, an eggroll popular in the Philippines. The lumpia is a special nod to Tony Tomeldon, owner of the Pug, who is of Filipino descent.

The menu, found below, launches at the Pug next week Wednesday, March 14. (more…)

A little less fanfare than when they turned ten but the special will be Russell’s choice according to Tony T. I’ll echo what I said last year and will hopefully echo many years into the future – Congrats to the one of the best that has quietly and consistently made D.C., the real D.C., a better place to live and work. And drink. And have fun.

What I particularly hate about the scammers is that I fear when someone really needs help – we will be so, understandably, jaded that we may default to thinking the request is a scam. I hope I’m wrong. Anyone else familiar with the request below?

“Dear PoPville,

Just wanted to send out a note regarding a potential scammer. I was walking my dog around 7pm last night between 13th and 14th on D Street NE when a man (late 40s/early 50s, approximately 5’9”, round figured, African American with eye ptosis) ran down “his” front steps and asked for cab fare claiming his wife and daughter were in the hospital in PG County. He whipped out his drivers license to prove he lived at that address (I didn’t lean in to confirm) and claimed that none of his neighbors were home to help him out. I assume part of his story is that he was locked out but he didn’t actually say that. Anyway, I told him I didn’t have any cash on me or in my home but that if his wife and children were in the hospital, the cops would surely be understanding and willing to give him a ride there.

I’ve heard this very story before though I didn’t recognize this guy. We’ll see if he’s still around in the coming weeks.”

“Dear PoPville,

I found this curious and thought you might too. The pic is of an envelope taped to Sticky Rice’s door on H St. NE that says “Confidential for Owner.” The same envelope was taped to the doors of most businesses this morning between 13th and 10th (and maybe more but those were the streets I walked between).”

What do you guys think, some sorta marketing thing? Or the key to the collusion?
