Thanks to a tipster for sharing:
“Scuttlebutt: Liquor store on corner moving to 7th St. NW b/c rent is too high (14K). Last day is July 31st. Owner apparently looking to bring a coffee shop in.”
Ed. Note: One of my favorite headlines from back in 2011 Liquor Store at 11th and Rhode Island Ave, NW Becoming a Liquor Store.
Amazing. Thanks to a reader for sending on Saturday:
“Witnessed a girl riding a scooter in Shaw with a cat in what appears to be a purpose-built backpack.
Unclear how the cat feels about this.”
This takes me back to July 13th 2017, which was also awesome: (more…)

We truly thank thank everyone for all the Loyalty, Love & Support you’ve shown Olde City Farm & Garden over the years, It’s been a Blast! Sad to say, Today will be the Last Day Olde City Farm & Garden will be open at our present location. It has been a pleasure to have been part of the Shaw community. We are working to find a new space for our retail services, until then our plant sales & retail services will be suspended. However, our Landscaping service, Olde City Garden will be fully functioning in the DC area. Thank you! Love, @oldecityfarm
Thanks to Kelley for passing on. This will be their second move. Before the 925 Rhode Island Ave NW, Olde City was located at 9th and N Street, NW (where Espita Mezcaleria is today.) The Rhode Island Ave location is where the new Banneker High School will be located. Updates when they find a new space.
