Update from Nellie’s:
“Nellie’s Sports Bar has terminated, with immediate effect, the independent security vendor hired to protect our guests during Pride Week. Our investigation into the matter is ongoing, and we will cooperate with any law enforcement investigation, however we do not need to wait for the investigation’s conclusion before we take decisive action. We offer a heartfelt apology to all who witnessed the horrific events of this past weekend. No matter what behavior occurred prior, nothing warrants mistreating, and disrespecting, one of our guests.
What we can say is we have heard the concerns of the BIPOC and LGBTQ communities. Nellie’s will be closed this week as we evaluate this regrettable situation, though we will continue to pay all non-security staff their normal wages. In the interim, we will use this time to listen and understand what more we can do to create the safe and friendly atmosphere our guests have come to expect from Nellie’s Sports Bar over the past 14 years.
The Nellie’s Family”

Thanks to Dan for sharing this awesome find:
“Found this in my garden while preparing my plots for the planting season near U Street. It was very green and rusted at first, but after cleaning it up it appears to be a brass button of some sort.
So, I did some online digging (pun intended) and it turns out that this is a US Naval Officers formal attire button from before 1939. Read More
