316 Massachusetts Ave, NE
Earlier this week we learned that La Loma had closed after 21 years. An interesting bit of scuttlebutt from a tipster:
“the adjacent Bistro Cacao will be expanding into that space.”
This is the first tip from this tipster so I am unable to give an accuracy rating for this post.

From an email:
“Tonight, The Tavern by sweetgreen, the first-ever market from the salad chain focusing on all things fresh and local, will launch its sweetflow walk-up window garden out of its storefront off of M Street in Georgetown.
sweetflow, sweetgreen’s beloved, fan-favorite frozen yogurt that disappeared off menus in 2014, made its return last year at The Tavern with a upgrade as the company partnered with local purveyor Dolcezza Gelato to make the frozen treat even more delicious. (more…)

There was a hit and run that happened last night at approximately 9:55 PM at the intersection of R ST NW and 6th ST NW. I was about to cross 6th street, standing on R when I saw a cyclist (who had a green light) crossing 6th street in the bike lane on R St. At the same time, a speeding car driver turning left from Rhode Island Ave NW ran the red light and T-boned the cyclist at the intersection, sending him and his bike flying. The car driver decelerated for a few seconds, and sped away on 6th street heading south. (more…)

Statement from the Family of Berner “Bud” Johnson (July 27, 1970 – May 19, 2019):
“This past Sunday, we said goodbye to our beloved husband, father, brother, son and friend Bud. He was alone when he was assaulted and viciously beaten by a group of men outside his favorite neighborhood restaurant on Wednesday, May 15. We made the incredibly difficult decision to remove him from life support four days later. His sudden departure from our lives and the violent way in which it occurred leaves a hole in our hearts that will never be filled.
Bud had a big heart. He was a great family man and loved nothing more than spending time with his wife and children. At home, at work and with friends, he always put the concerns of others before his own.
As a result, Bud had an extensive and loving network of friends in the Senate, on his softball team, his son’s Little League baseball team and throughout the Washington, DC, community. Bud loved his neighborhood, which he and Diane moved into nine years ago seeking a change in their lifestyle. Along with their son Bo, they have lived in and around the DC community and became a part of it.
The family wishes to thank the first responders from both the Metropolitan Police Department and the DC Fire and EMS Department who tended to Bud immediately following his assault. Because of their efforts and success in reviving Bud, dozens of family members and friends were able to say goodbye to Bud before he passed.
The family is also grateful to the staff at MedStar Washington Hospital Center who cared for Bud, keeping him comfortable during his final days while accommodating the constant stream of visitors who filled the halls outside the ICU. (more…)
