“Dear PoPville,

I’ve been running into issues CVS, they’ve been very backlogged (~3 weeks) on my medication, and by the time they can get to it, my prescription has already “expired” due to the DC laws, even though they were aware of it and I submitted it with plenty of time. Naturally this has caused some frustration, and while I understand DC laws, I want to make a switch. Does anyone have suggestions for mom and pop pharmacies? I used to use them in my old city and want to make the switch.”

14th and Monroe Street, NW

Update from ANC Christine Miller:

“Some have asked about work happening at 14th & Monroe. Sorry to disappoint, but there won’t be a resurrection of TGIF. Alterations & repair are for Children’s National Primary Care. Now I can just run my
kids down the block the next time one breaks!”

Thanks to Paul for sending:

“Maybe this means movement of some kind? TGIFridays back from the dead?”

TGIFriday’s last D.C. location closed in Foggy Bottom back in October.

Ah the prospect of TGIF in Columbia Heights… (more…)

“Can you please confirm for me that One Medical WILL be in-network for CareFirst, and the date that will be effective?”

The replied:

“It’s my understanding, the contract with One Medical begins on January 1.”

And it’s official:
