Boom. Back in 2016 this space was, briefly, planned for a Wegmans grocery store. North Country – get your dancing shoes! From a press release:

Whole Foods Market has signed a 40,000-square-foot lease to anchor the Hartley at the Parks at Walter Reed, a 3.1 million-square-foot master-planned community from Hines, Urban Atlantic, and Triden Development Group. The leading natural and organic grocer is among the latest signature additions to the dynamic transformation of the former Walter Reed medical campus, the largest site under development in Northwest Washington, D.C.

Construction on The Hartley is expected to begin in early 2020 with completion of the project in early 2022. Read More


Hopefully just a little glitch, because I’m eager to try this out!

A reader reported on Saturday:

“Mayor Bowser issued a press release announcing the grand opening of the kiosk. Tried to use it today and it said it couldn’t upload our data. Tried a second time and it said the same thing, then that the machine was out of order.”

“Takoma Station Tavern was the site of a great jazz scene in the 80’s and 90’s, when jazz luminaries like Wynton Marsalis graced the stage and local jazz heroes like Paul Carr and Marshall Keys were a regular presence. In the mid-90’s, the club changed formats to R&B and go-go. But great jazz is making a return to the club, located at 6916 4th St. NW in Takoma DC near the Takoma metro stop. Read More


Oof, thanks to Whitney for sending Sunday from: “3rd Street and Whittier Streets NW

clearly someone completely smashed into the front of this parked car and drove off. Totaled, no doubt, and also hit the two cars behind it because of the force.”


Thanks to Stephen for sending from Takoma DC:

“took a long time to start blooming and suffered several collapses, but looks super cheery now!

It was a volunteer, as well. One of our puny little sunflowers from the alley must have thrown some seeds over the wall. I’m hoping for more next year!”
