Frozen Potomac

Thanks to Peyton for sending this cool shot of a frozen Potomac this morning.

Speaking of which the NWS warned:

“Black Ice Possible Early Monday Morning

Patchy fog and cold temperatures will result in an isolated threat for black ice early Monday morning. The best chance for slippery spots will be on bridges and overpasses near bodies of water. Remain alert for slippery spots, especially on bridges and overpasses.”

Thanks to a reader for sending: “Is a new David Chang restaurant coming to SW? Not positive it’s momofuku but the name makes it seem like it may be.”

Hmm, I don’t think there is a Chang connection – while the liquor license placard posted for MOMO says:

“A new Retailer’s Class C Restaurant with a seating capacity of 74 and Total Occupancy Load of 80.”

The building’s website in SW has a teaser with the full name, Momo Chicken and Grill (see photo below.)

Momo Chicken & Grill’s Facebook for their Bethesda location says:

“MoMo is the place where Korean Fried Chicken is seasoned with Jazz Music. With its rustic design that combines musical antiques and industrial elements from 19th century, Momo will comfort you with soul food, drink and music.”

Ed. Note: Back in 2017 District Hardware and Bike moved from Foggy Bottom to The Wharf.

Thanks to all who messaged us the sad news. From District Hardware and Bike | The Velo Cafe:

“To our friends, family and neighbors,

With heavy hearts it saddens us to inform you all that as of this Sunday, December 1st at 5pm, District Hardware and Bike will be permanently closed for business. For 50 years we’ve operated District Hardware and Bike as an independent, family owned small business, and have done our best to bring a unique, neighborhood-focused concept to fruition. Unfortunately, things haven’t worked out the way we thought or planned, and we are unable to continue operating. Read More

From MPD:

“This evening around 5 PM, a victim who had just parked his vehicle near 3rd St SW and I St SW was approached by a group of 3-4 teenaged black males who demanded his property and took his vehicle.
