Yesterday Stacy was kind enough to send a bit of info about the artist:
“The piece was created by DC native Akeel Ali, also known as Black Frontiersmen, a local artist who has been working to beautify the neighborhood–and DC in general–with his art. His art can be seen on U Street and in Shaw, with more projects coming soon.” (more…)

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).”

Been getting a lot of queries like this one from Ryan:
“I noticed the other night that they’re completely digging up the parking lot on Sherman. Howard has re-zoned a number of their properties along Sherman and I’m wondering if anyone knows whether they’re building here as well?”
And Brian notes: “This is is the lot where they’d park their beat-up Howard police cruisers.”
