“Dear PoPville,

One of the old pastry chefs that worked at China Chilcano by José Andrés got furloughed and she never got any help from unemployment so she opened her own business. A little taqueria. They’re currently popping up at little beast in Chevy chase with hopes of getting their own space. Her food is delicious. They’re popping up at little beast everyday! And also offering margarita deliveries to the whole dc area!” Read More

Thanks to Ben for sending: “The Muchas Gracias “Delivery and Take-out Pop-Up” opened a couple weeks ago on Connecticut Ave. between Buck’s and Sugar Fox. This is in the Buckaroos space. Initial impression: tasty. They don’t have a proper sign, but they do have a website, which seems more important these days.”

Their website says: “Muchas Gracias Mercadito is a contact-less Delivery and Take-out Pop-Up.

In a response to our community’s needs, we offer grocery items, delicious prepared foods, and a menu inspired by the flavors of Latin America.

Part of our mission is to support immigrant workers who often go unseen – especially in these difficult times. With your support we supply free, delivered meals and farm-direct pantry boxes to families in need. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to organizations supporting immigrant workers.

We look forward to feeding you ALL!
Created in partnership with our neighbors,

“Dear PoPville,

Sunrise on Connecticut Avenue offers a fantastic senior living experience in Washington, DC. We are looking for a few musicians to volunteer on Sunday afternoons at 3 pm to perform for our community. If anyone is interested, please reach out to Alyssa at [email protected]. The residents love music and to meet new people.”
