Thanks to Margot for passing on the sad word from Salon Roi:

“Friends, it is with mixed emotion that we share this with you! Like millions, we have been struggling for over a year now to keep our DOORS OPEN, while operating 20/30% of our normal capacity and Income. We have done a good job following all the COVID rules to the “T.” AFTER ALL THAT, we were not successful in negotiating a new LEASE. So, like many long-time businesses in Woodley Park, we are forced to close the doors of Salon Roi after 52 years in the same Building.

So, June 30th, we will be leaving Our MARILYN MURAL behind, as we all pack our styling carts and head to SALON ROI (#2) Read More

From MPD:

Carjacking– On 12/14/20, at approximately 8 PM, the victim was parked in the 5400 Block of 27th Street NW. A vehicle then executed a U-turn and parked along side of the victim’s vehicle. The suspect displayed a handgun and ordered the victim to get back. The victim stepped away from the vehicle and the suspect then entered the victim’s car and fled the scene. The vehicle has since been recovered in the 6th District.
