Thanks to all who passed on from Republic Kolache:

“Some bittersweet news today folks: after 5 very gratifying years, Republic Kolache will be closing up shop early next month.

From the first popups at American Ice in Aug 2015, to a wholesale business that placed kolaches on the shelves of Whole Foods & many local coffee shops, to the opening of our sister brick & mortar Republic Cantina — we’ve truly had a good run.

The rationale here is what you’d probably guess: the pandemic has caused a massive drop in our sales (namely on the wholesale side, which represented ~90% of our production). With many of our cafe & grocery customers closed, continuing operations is unfortunately just no longer sustainable. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I recently got into a car crash on New Jersey Avenue and O Street, NW around 8:45 pm on Sunday 10/11/20. It was a hit and run so I’m trying to find the car / driver that messed my car up. All we know is that it was a red Mercedes sedan and it should have scratches running up the driver side of it. Anyone with information can text me at (443)-878-0214 or email me at [email protected]
