“Dear PoPville,

Last week, during a 30 min, 3 mile run with my dog, a man passing us from behind us kicked his leg out in a deliberate attempt to kick my dog when he thought I wasn’t looking in his direction and then gave a weird/creepy smile when he realized I was looking. (Where Florida and Sherman Ave merge)

Then about 10 min later on 14th Street, a young woman squatted down in front my my dog while we were waiting at a cross walk and then began jumping/lunging toward her and making noise in blatant attempt to scare her. (She’s obviously lucky that my dog didn’t bite her because that’s a recipe for a dog bite!)

I have taken my dog on countless walks/runs in these areas and never experienced this before. Anyone else experiencing this?!”

3632 Georgia Ave, NW

Ed. Note: Rejoice textdoc et al, after a long and bloody neighborhood boundary battle I’m ceding back the 3600 of Georgia Ave to Park View. I haven’t anymore fight left in me and at this point I don’t want to confuse folks. So there you have it, I surrender. I surrender.

Thanks to Dan for solving the mystery at the (new/old) Marrakech Moroccan Restaurant space. Not sure what happened to Marrakech but it looks like mr. braxton Bar&Kitchen is taking over the space: (more…)

Thanks to Jes for sending the above on Friday:

“Not sure what’s going on at the Moroccan place but some layers have been peeled back. I think it’s still going to be the Moroccan place, but they gutted the inside too.”

It appears to be a banana?!?!?
