SeoulSpice opened a location in NoMa (145 N Street, NE) last year. You can see their menu here.

“SEOULSPICE’s menu features made-to-order Korean favorites, such as rice bowls (bibimbap) and korritos (kimbap burritos), as well as street tacos and salads. These bases are enhanced with four protein options–beef, chicken, spicy pork, and tofu– and fresh vegetables, including bean sprouts, corn, carrots, cucumbers, Korean radish, kale slaw, and kimchi (pickled Korean cabbage). SEOULSPICE offers four gourmet sauces made in-house–Korean hot sauce, creamy sriracha, cilantro-lime ranch, and ginger-carrot–plus fresh herbs and toppings. The menu also features three sides: “the” egg, marinated in a sweet soy base; avocado; and jars of kimchi.” (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

Wondering if you have heard anything about the Fort Reno concert series? The website hasn’t been updated in a while and just says they are still looking for funding…Thanks!”

We haven’t met our fundraising goal for this year but I wanted to go ahead and get the submission window open. Please continue to spread the word about donating to the concert series – you can donate here.

Ed. Note: Last year the series kicked off July 7th so there’s still hope.

3900 Wisconsin Ave, NW

If you will it is no dream Vol. 820. Following a week we willed a Wawa and an indoor competitive Axe Throwing option to the District, I was sure we’d be talking about dog poop and doors this week. Boy was I wrong. (Well the week is young…) But last night around 10pm, while I was too engrossed in Netflix’s Who Murdered Sister Cathy? to post, WDCEP (Washington DC Economic Partnership) tweeted us:

“It’s true! @Wegmans is coming to #DC.”

“Old Fannie Mae HQ!!”

This confirms our first report of a Wegmans possibly coming to the future, former Fannie Mae site back in March.

The Washington Post reports:

“Fannie Mae is scheduled to move out of the complex late next year, clearing the way for Wegmans to open by 2022, according to Richard Lake, founding partner of Roadside Development. The grocery store, which is expected to take up about 80,000 square feet, will be located on the lower level, with an entrance at the back of the building, Lake said.”

And there was great joy in PoPville. STAY TUNED.

A reader reports just before 1pm:

“Flipped car on Wisconsin right outside Fannie Mae headquarters. They’re trying to get driver out through the sunroof now. Driver seemed lucid. But two cars are messed up and traffic is backed up down Wisconsin Ave. Virginia plates.”

Hope all are ok.

Yuri writes last week:

“We were walking through Fort Reno park and the grass was alive with emerging cicada nymphs. Here are some photographs of one that emerged an hour or two ago. These appear to be a different species than the ones that typically emerge in June/July.”

If you spot a hawk or any other bird of prey or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send in an email where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.

More photos after the jump. (more…)
