Holy smokes, I was not anticipating this week of random finds getting stranger than the LED hula hoop…
Thanks to EH for sending. By the by, the straight street value for one of these things is like 50 bucks.
The following was written by PoPville contributor David McAuley, founder of Short Articles about Long Meetings.
A proposal to make on-street parking more difficult for non-residents brought local businesspeople and residents out to the meeting of Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 2E/Georgetown Monday night (December 4).
ANC2E Chair Joe Gibbons characterized “the meat” of the proposal: for every local block that is part of the District’s Residential Permit Parking (RPP) program, one side of the street will be reserved for local residents and guests. The other side will be “for anybody”. As it stands now, any Ward Two resident with a permit can drive to Georgetown and enjoy the benefits of on-street parking under the RPP program.
The proposal brought local businesspeople out to oppose the plan, which they claimed would drive away customers. (more…)

“The restaurant will also add some new dishes — including some from the Rincon family’s home country of Colombia — and upgrade the plating and some other aspects to fit in with the Georgetown scene. They’ll install a ceviche bar similar to one they tested out in their Fair Lakes location that has been doing well, Rincon said.
But it will still be a casual restaurant; there will be no tablecloths, and families will be welcome.”
Last we talked about Guapo’s, for a hot second it looked like they’d be moving locations in Tenleytown but they ultimately decided to stay in their original location on Wisconsin.

From a description of an early preview dinner:
“Chef Johnny Spero began his culinary career at the age of 16 in Baltimore County. For the past 10 years he has been living and working in Washington D.C., most recently during his tenure as Head Chef at Jose Andres’ Minibar the restaurant earned a perfect four-star review from The Washington Post.
Currently Johnny is building his new restaurant in Georgetown called Reverie. It will offer an a la carte menu as well as a 6 course tasting menu. Reverie is inspired by Spero’s travels and working abroad, offering a casual fine dining experience in an approachable and fun atmosphere.”

My husband and I visited Key Bridge Boathouse in Georgetown on Sunday Oct 22, 2017 and were on the river kayaking from 2:50pm-3:50pm. We had locked up our bikes on the bike racks in front of the boathouse and came back to find them missing.
I was immediately approached by a homeless man claiming he had witnessed our bikes being stolen and could help us get them back. He knew exactly what these two men looked like and knew they would be back for more bikes. He said the thieves cut our lock and escaped in opposite directions with our bikes (one down the Capital Crescent Trail and the other towards Georgetown Waterfront.) I was skeptical, thinking this man may have been involved.
Meanwhile, my husband searched along the Potomac River side of the Capital Crescent Trail for stashed bikes as I called the police to file a report and notified the Boathouse front desk staff. Neither the police or staff seemed surprised by this incident. (more…)
