From an email:

“DC Brau Presents:
A special release to commemmorate JV’s 10 year anniversary
this is a crisp, smooth & easy pale weizenbock w/ light fruit flavors (think of it like a strong hefeweissen). Soft pear & hints of banana emerge as it warms but it remains a deadly-fast drinker for the 7.8% ABV.
Tallboys of this limited release are available now at JV’s (1103 Bladensburg Rd, NE) & Miss Whiskey’s (1104 H St NE), & will hit the rest of DC next week for as long as it lasts.
Our good friends at DC BRAU were incredibly kind to make this for us

Here’s their back story and description for the beer: (more…)

cvs truck

Update on that CVS Truck that smashed into a parked car last week:

“CVS contacted the trucking company who employs the driver…he called me Friday night and was going back and forth…apologizing yet trying to minimize blame. claimed the driver didn’t know…but then asked for the video of the driver getting out of the truck after he hit my car. Nay, dragged my car.

Anyway – they have a court date May 4…trying to see how they want to handle this. Still a little shady CVS isn’t taking any blame.”

“Dear PoPville,

2 a.m. this past Saturday I woke up to a sound that at first thought was a fight or ruckus outside (I live in Trinidad) – I looked out and saw a CVS tractor trailer going down my street. It was stuck, obviously because a truck that size shouldn’t be trying to go down the street – for any reason. Since it was 2 a.m. and I was in a wedding the next day, I went back to sleep. When I got ready to leave, I looked at my car which, well – you can see the damage. No note, no nothing. I looked on our video camera feed and saw the truck jack-knifed onto our street, the guy get out to look, then try and get unstuck, dragging my car along with it. You can actually see the car move several feet in the video as he drags it. And if I could hear it, he definitely could as well.”

“Two police officers are in stable condition Friday after they were involved in a Thursday night shooting in northeast D.C. that left a suspect dead. Acting D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham, alongside Mayor Muriel Bowser, told reporters just after midnight that the two uniformed officers who suffered non-life threatening injuries were being treated at area hospitals.”

Thanks to all who sent updates last night and this morning. Further updates when the full MPD report is released.

Full update from MPD:

“Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s (MPD) Internal Affairs Bureau are investigating an officer-involved shooting that occurred in the 1200 block of Holbrook Street, Northeast, on Thursday, February 23, 2017.

At approximately 10:42 pm, members of the Fifth District Crime Suppression Team were in the area responding to previous sounds of gunshots when they attempted to stop a subject. The subject attempted to flee and ignored multiple commands from the officers to stop. A struggle ensued and there was an exchange of gunfire.

DC Fire and EMS transported the suspect to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The suspect has been identified as 47-year-old Timothy Lionel Williams, of no fixed address.

Two MPD officers sustained non-life-threatening gunshot wounds and were transported to a local hospital in stable condition. One of the officers has currently been released from the hospital, and both are expected to make a successful recovery.

The suspect’s gun was recovered on scene and is pictured below.


No other individuals were injured during this incident. The officers involved were placed on administrative leave, pursuant to MPD policy.

The officers had activated their Body Worn Cameras, and that footage is currently under review.

This case remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact police at (202) 727-9099.”
