Clarice reports:

“Spotted in an alleyway between Park Rd and Lamont St NW, in Mount Pleasant, 8/21. Very surprising, disturbing to see.”

Perhaps the intention is the earlier meanings:

“it has been and remains a sacred symbol of spiritual principles in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism. In the Western world, it was historically a symbol of auspiciousness and good luck”

“Dear PoPville,

On Thursday morning (the 17th) at about 8:40am I was on my bike in Mount Pleasant on Irving Street just before (west of) 16th Street when I was hit by a car. It was a silver late-model smallish Ford, like an Escort or Focus, with Maryland plates. I actually was dragged about 15 feet before he sped off down 16th. Luckily I escaped with just a fractured collarbone and a bunch of scrapes to my leg and helmet… my bike didn’t fare as well.

Did anybody see this? I stupidly left the scene running to try and get his plate number (you can do anything on adrenalin). I should have just stayed there and talked to witnesses. If you saw this, please get in contact with me! I’ve filed a police report, but they don’t have much to go on at this point.

Thanks everyone!”

Thanks to Andy for passing on this epic news from Mount Desert Island Ice Cream:

“We are excited to announce that we are opening in Washington D.C. this fall! This is the site of our future location in Mount Pleasant, added bonus, a great Pupuseria downstairs! We are currently under construction so we will keep you posted as we get closer to opening.”

Their website says:

“I guess the story begins when, of all things, I was working for a software company in Boston as a web and multimedia developer. One day I knew it was time for a change. I wanted to work for myself, make my own rules, decide my own hours (BTW, this is a myth all all small business owners tell themselves at first: that they are going to “make their own hours.”)

From a young age, I always recognized two constants: this desire to work for myself, and the recognition that the only dessert that ever mattered was ice cream. With that in mind, Mount Desert Island Ice Cream was born in 2005 with not much of a vision except to make my favorite dessert the best way I knew how.

That first year my goal was to fill a void by making flavors not seen in ice cream shops or on the shelves at the supermarket. This led to my first big obsession: making a Nutella flavor – it needed to be done! However, I also spent time trying to perfect the classics. When I started out you couldn’t easily find a chocolate ice cream in the supermarket that was actually made with real chocolate instead of cocoa powder. This is still often the case today.

At the time I had never heard the word “artisanal” applied to food as it wasn’t quite a movement yet. I wanted to make ice cream with real ingredients in small batches. Not out of nobility really, but because I didn’t know any other way. Over a decade later, and we still make it the same way, 5 gallons at a time.

As I worked to hone my craft that very first year, I kept everything simple, selling small quantities at local farmer’s markets and and to various restaurants. By 2006, I decided to make the big jump and we opened our first retail location at 7 Firefly Lane in Bar Harbor. Honestly, I didn’t ever think I wanted a shop, particularly as I had never worked in the retail environment, and I had no idea what I was doing (really, I mean zero idea). That inaugural year was one challenge after another. When you are starting out a new business from scratch, there is never a moment when you are not “on”, coming in to fix something, cashing out the register, dropping off change, filling in shifts, painting the floors at night, defrosting the cabinets… Oh yeah, and also making ice cream seven days a week.

It all worked out though (a good case for taking the leap as usually things turn out in the end!)

The following year I opened a second shop nearby at 325 Main Street on the outskirts of town in Bar Harbor. I needed a bigger production space and help with prep. My plans was that this second space would be a slow, quiet shop where the employees would work on prep while also serving a few flavors to customers. It would also be a place where chefs could pop by for tastings and discuss ideas. Much to my surprise, the shop became a very busy little spot not long after it was opened.

And then Obama happened. (more…)
