And around 7:15pm last night a reader reported shots fired on Georgia Ave and Park Road, NW. It does not appear anyone was hit as no police reports were issued.
Ed. Note: They forgot the ‘end’ in North.
Went by the new “Trellis House” apartment building (Sherman Ave & Barry Place) this morning and saw Bozzuto had put out a bunch of signs, so I looked it up.
“We live where the iconic meets the worldly and style is supported by substance. Find us at the corner of Sherman Avenue and Barry Place, in the heart of the historic and dynamic North Shaw neighborhood.”

Thanks to Nita for sending word about Napoli Pasta Bar, great news for Park View/Pleasant Plains/Columbia Heights!!
“We are excited to recognize Napoli Pasta Bar, which opened in March of this year. The place is a real win for Sherman Ave., and the kitchen delivers serious and authentic Neapolitan fare. The neighborhood-friendly, laid back atmosphere makes for a fine pairing with the wonderfully prepared dishes.”
For those not familiar with the accolade:
“Introduced in 1955, Bib Gourmand restaurants are selected by Michelin’s famously anonymous food inspectors, who choose restaurants serving high quality food on their menus and make it possible to order two courses and a glass of wine or dessert for $40 or less (tax and gratuity not included).”
That sign had been there a LONG time… Didn’t realize Adventure Dental & Orthodontics had so many employees:

I know the Bruce Monroe park used to have a dog run but now it seems they don’t even want pets on the grounds. Any reason for the change?”
Ed. Note: Also interesting to note the “no motorized vehicles” section. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that on a DPR sign before. You can also read about redevelopment plans for the park here.
