1432 Park Road, NW

Thanks to Andy for sending: “what’s up with “Flip It LJ Diner” now with signage up on Park Road near Pho 14?”

This might be set a new record for “long time coming”! Back in August 2013 we first posted about Flip It coming to this space. In December 2014 they looked close to opening. Then crickets. Finally some new signage and Dear God please be a proper Diner. STAY TUNED.

1326 Park Road, NW

A reader reports:

“I walked by El Rinconcito II over Memorial Day Weekend, and there were a couple guys going in and out with renovation/construction type equipment. I asked them when it was re-opening and they said, “next month!” — fingers crossed for sometime this June!”

El Rinconcito II suffered a terrible fire last October. There were initial hopes they’d reopen in April. Fingers now crossed for June!!

“Dear PoPville,

I was walking my dog and a friends dog (both Labrador Retrievers) home from the 11th Street dog park in Columbia Heights on Thursday, June 1st when a loose dog approached us.

We were on Sherman Avenue NW between Lamont and Kenyon heading south. Both of my dogs were on leash but the loose dog had no collar, leash or owner present. The dog went for the black lab first and then attacked my dog, Griffin. The dog had a strong hold on Griffin’s neck and head for a while and had him pinned on his back. With the help of some people in the area we were able to get the dog off of Griffin after a few minutes and secure it with a leash. The police were called and the dog was picked up by DC animal control. (more…)

C1 pushed S1 away, S1 then picked up a brick, put it inside a sock and began swinging the brick at C1, without striking him. S1 threw the brick on the ground and fled the scene on foot.

C1 refused medical treatment.”

“Dear PoPville,

Wanted to share and give a heads up to your readers about something that happened to me yesterday evening outside of the Columbia Heights Giant.

I was walking down Park Road when a middle-aged black man on a bike stopped and asked if I could do something for him. He told me he was on a scavenger hunt, and the last item he needed was a picture of the bottom of a woman’s foot. (more…)

Ed. Note: Also looks like the fountains are finally back on again!

From an email:

“On Saturday, June 3, MINT Gym and Studio is hosting a FREE outdoor bootcamp at Meridian Hill Park at 10:30 a.m., taught by our infamous Liz Harvey. It’s going to be a crazy and engaging “power playground” event that focuses on both strength and cardio. Sign up via this Eventbrite link, since the event is being held on National Park grounds and we must keep our records straight.”
