Speaking of breakfast sandwiches, Oath Pizza has just launched theirs:

“WHAT: Escape the heat this summer and get “lost” in a tiki bar themed event at The Yards. The Yards will make a splash and transform into an island paradise with DC’s largest Tiki-themed block party on the boardwalk. Featuring a live steel drum band, lawn chairs and oversized lawn games, tiki bars with fun instagrammable drinks, a misting station to cool down, an inflatable surfing simulator, an “underwater” photo booth, and other water-related activities, this event will make your Saturday feel like a vacation.

Basically it was pouring rain outside and masses of people were entering the station for the Nats and DC United game. People wanted to take shelter so they stayed in the station. The police officer kept telling the crowd to disperse and make entrance and exit accessible. Read More
I’ve been meeting to write in about this for a few weeks but finally got around to it after seeing the Kelvin post. Placement of this sign on M St. & South Capitol St. SE for the new Envy condo building made me snort-laugh walking home from work the other day–it’s right next to a Catholic church. Maybe the developer was thinking that once residents buy into “a lifestyle to covet” (their language, not mine) they’ll hit up Saint Vincent De Paul to repent? I get that they’re trying to play off the N St. address, but seriously… smh.”
Ed. Note: What’s your favorite condo/building name? Mine is still the Dudington in Adams Morgan/Lanier Heights.
