The Indiegogo campaign says:

“When we started building St. Vincent, we envisioned a place where folks from all walks of life would come to share community and bond over our mutual love of good wine, food and live music. We were right on target for our opening in early Spring 2020, but that got reality-checked HARD by COVID-19. So here we are with a beautiful space and nobody to share it with…but we still have rent to pay. So, in anticipation of finally being allowed to open, we are launching this campaign to get folks excited about what we’ve spent the last year and a half working on. Have a look at our perks and see if anything tickles your fancy!

We’re hoping to raise at least $35,000 with this campaign to: Read More


2905 Sherman Ave, NW

Thanks to Daniela and Amanda for sending:

“I walked past Bun DC this morning and noticed that a “for sale” sign has been added to the building. The restaurant was a welcome addition to Park View and I’ll be very sad to see it closed.”

The listing (for $2,000,000) says:

“Great Business opportunity! Commercial/Residential 3 levels building renovated in 2015. The property offers a Restaurant (currently in Operation), located on the main and lower levels with front and rear patios for additional tables. On the upper level a 1 Bed/1 Bath Apartment with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, and hardwood floors throughout. All of the Restaurant equipment conveys, which makes this almost a turnkey situation for a restaurant operator. Read More

Reana first reported at 12:06am: “Multiple what I assume shots fired around Sherman and Irving. Fireworks were going on earlier, but this definitely seemed like shots.”

Many others reported up to 12 shots fired and a very quick police response.

From MPD:

“The Third District is currently investigating a shooting in the 2900 block of Sherman Avenue NW. An adult male has been transported to an area hospital with a non life threatening gunshot wound to the upper body. Patrol units in the area have several persons of interest detained and multiple firearms recovered.

Anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099.”


Georgia and New Hampshire Ave, NW

“Dear PoPville,

I want to know the reasoning for putting jersey barriers on Georgia thus blocking accessible parking for the CVS. I don’t want to have to cross Georgia Avenue and I would not want to see other seniors taking their lives in their hands having to park across the street from CVS. There has not been a line down the street, the same so-called argument used by DDOT to block parking at the Safeway on Georgia and Randolph. There was no hearing that I am aware of and no public comment period. Now I hear they want to close streets to allow restaurants to shut down public space for social distancing. It seems as if when it comes to the average citizen, with DDOT you have no rights.”

Here’s a discussion we had on the construction last summer. Final thoughts?


Oh my goodness a magnificent, and desperately needed, update about Saint Vincent coming to the old union drinkery/sundevich space at 3212-3216 Georgia Ave NW in the Park View. Co-owner Peyton Sherwood (along with partner Frederick Uku) tells me that they’ll be opening up a retail shop there in the next few weeks (before a proper opening is suitable.) We can expect the space to feature a wine list that highlights small producers from all over the world plus cheese and charcuterie. People will be able to pick out their favorites online a la carte or buy baskets they put together. You can follow their progress on their Instagram page here. And of course we’ll update when the retail shop is live and of course when it’s safe to do so, when the proper opening occurs.

Check out a taste from that sweet window at night too: Read More
