“Dear PoPville,

I have to say irony is fairly entertaining. I recently recorded an individual casing our property for a possible future break in. I emailed the video the police and they recommended a sign to try to help deter an future theft. I ordered the sign on amazon along with a ten dollar motion light. When it got delivered Sunday, it appears my neighbors were the culprit(s). (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I had a taste for some dessert and remembered that there’s a new Insomnia Cookies on H St near my condo in Trinidad (half a mile away).

To my surprise (or dismay), Insomnia Cookies has specifically carved Trinidad OUT of its delivery zone. Maybe they think this is the Trinidad of 2006…even if it was, residents still deserve delivery options.

Does anyone know of any other H St food locations refusing to deliver to Trinidad??”

“Dear PoPville,

I recently noticed new signs up on the north side of the 1400 block of Morse St. NE that say “Resident Parking Only – 6PM to 3AM – Resident or Visitor Permit Required” threatening a tow and $250 fine.

What gives? I’ve previously lived in Adams Morgan, Mt. Pleasant, U Street, and Petworth, and only saw zone permit parking only or 2 hour limit enforced 24/7. Is this a new kind of restriction, and if so, why those hours?”
