Mount Pleasant Street, NW not far from the Raven

“Dear PoPville,

Construction happening on this building, no safety net or covered walkway below and this guy in the open front window doesn’t appear to have any safety gear on either. Some tenants exited the front door at one point and the guys below just shouted up to the guy in the window to stop for a second until they passed.”

“Hello all,

Anyway anyone has come this ring or this bracelet:

– on 16th St between Blagden and Columbia Rd NW
– on Columbia Rd between 16th and 18th, or
– on 18th between Columbia and L St NW?

The ring was given to my by my aunt and godmother three weeks before she died last April. It was her 21st wedding anniversary ring from her husband.
The bracelet was the first gift I ever received from my spouse.

Both have EXTREME sentimental value. I am hoping for some good Samaritans out there… I’ve also filed a police report in case someone turns it in there.

Thank you,

“Dear PoPville,

My family and I came across Addis Paris Cafe last weekend during their soft opening. They’ve taken over the spot next to Sun Cinema where the Lia Cafe used to be.

We stopped for some Ethiopian food and nutella crepes – both were great. Lovely lady running the place.

Very excited to have some good Ethiopian food (especially, while Zenenbech is out of commission) and crepes (since Napolean turned into Lapis) in the area.”
