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

“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. The vehicle was recovered nearly immediately after the suspects crashed near South Capitol and I Sts SW and ran away. While our patrol officers are actively searching, our detectives are still on the scene investigating. Anyone who may have seen either the carjacking or subsequent crash is encouraged to call the MPD tipline at 202-727-9099 or send an anonymous text to 50-411.”

his morning, before 7am, I woke up to the sound of about 15 measured explosions (?), though I’m not sure what they were. It sounded like fireworks or maybe construction equipment that is used when laying a building’s foundation (there’s a lot of construction around here). The sound was so powerful that it caused my house to vibrate. It continued to happen every 10 minutes or so, with the last sequence sounding much more like fireworks, with an uneven distribution. Does anyone know what the heck it was? Not sure if it’s connected to Ft. McNair?”
Eric replied to a similar query on twitter:
“Fort Myer. Almost certainly practicing artilary/cannon fire. It did have a different pacing today but that’s what it was.”
On behalf of my organization, Friends of Lombardi, I am hosting a charity concert in on 9/26 at Union Stage in the Wharf, featuring White Ford Bronco. All proceeds go directly towards cancer research and treatment at the Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.
