Thanks to Nick for sending:
“We found these in a hiding spot in the ceiling of our basement during a recent renovation. House is in Lanier Heights, and built in 1905. Guess one of the previous tenants has a bit of a habit. I haven’t been able to find any record of the pharmacy or when it closed. My family has been here since the early 80s, and it was gone by then.”

“I have a mystery only you can solve. Why is this taped to the (imo amazing) vacant house at 2800 Adams Mill?”
I don’t know. I saw this in Adams Morgan/Lanier Heights, I believe this is in front of a Bed and Breakfast which is even stranger, anyway I have some thoughts. Dear God do I have some thoughts. But in the interim – caption contest – go!!

Tuesday evening (3/27) around 8:30pm, I was walking NW on Adams Mill Road toward the zoo, on the west side of the street. I noticed four young men come out of Walter Pierce Park behind me and follow me. Since it was not particularly late, I wasn’t concerned at first, but looking back, I noticed that they all wore parka hoodies and had the hoods pulled up over their heads, and they weren’t speaking. The street was getting darker as I walked down the hill past Ontario Road, and I decided against putting my earbuds in so I could focus on what was happening behind me, as it appeared they were walking quickly, catching up to me.

Harry reported shots fired in Truxton Circle around 11pm:
“Not seeing this yet on the MPD twitter, but last night around 11pm I heard about 7-10 gunshots in the 200 block of Q Street, NW. MPD arrived promptly, swept the area, found casings through the street.“
And Benjamin passes on from Adams Morgan around 10pm:
I was robbed at gunpoint tonight while taking a walk near the Walter Pierce Park in NW DC. Just got done dealing with the police. Grateful to be alive.
