I continue to get tons of messages about this graffiti popping up all over town. Continue to report specific locations to 311 please.

Chris also notes:

“The police were out taking note of all of it and trying to get camera footage of who is doing the tagging – so they are on it.”

Update from MPD

“MPD is aware of the graffiti that has proliferated over the last several days. We are working to document it all, and coordinating with the Department of Public Works on its removal once we have taken a report and pictures.

If the public sees anti-Semitic graffiti regarding war with Russia, we ask that they look to see if it has also been marked “MPD CCN.” If it has, MPD has taken a report and it is on DPW’s list for clean-up, and there is no need to place a call. If it does not say “MPD CCN” on it, please call 311 to report the graffiti, noting the exact location, and, if available, any information about when the location was defaced.”

Rendering of potential 601 K Street hotel design from DC Office of Zoning files

The following was written by PoPville contributor David McAuley, founder of Short Articles about Long Meetings.

It is not clear who will build the planned “235 key” hotel with a rooftop bar at K and Sixth Streets NW. The design is only in its earliest stages. No hotel group has been chosen to run the hotel once it is built. Neither the bar or the hotel has a name. The penthouse bar may be run by the proprietors of the hotel, or may be operated by a third party.

But the penthouse bar that may appear someday above Mount Vernon Square already has closing hours – midnight weekdays, 2 a.m. weekends – endorsed unanimously by Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 6E/Shaw at its last regularly-scheduled meeting on November 7.

“It’s a little unusual in setting particular usage terms before an operator is even selected,” said Commissioner Alex Marriott (district 05). The planned hotel will be in Marriott’s district. (more…)

1015 7th Street, NW

How in the world did I miss this?!? MVP’s website says:

“A truly great sports bar must be awash in TVs, offer an inordinate selection of beers, whiskeys, tequilas and excel at something good, saucy and routinely on special, and must end up all over dress shirts.

MVP’s our one-size-fits-all Sports Bar concept, with more than 28 HDTVs, two video wall, dozens of beers, and huge selection of Whiskey’s and Tequilas (did we say HUGE?). (more…)

Calle Cinco is adjacent to Alta Strada at 465 K Street, NW

From an email:

Calle Cinco, the Spanish tapas pop-up from Chef Michael Schlow and team, will continue for the foreseeable future. Thanks to an overwhelmingly positive response from patrons and support from the Mt. Vernon Triangle neighborhood, Schlow, Chef George Rodrigues and the rest of the team have decided to extend the tapas concept.

As such, the team has debuted a new happy hour menu, available every day of the week from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. featuring $5 drinks, and an assortment of cured meats, cheeses and tapas priced at $7 and under. Highlights from the menu include two kinds of “bikini sandwiches,” Serrano ham and Manchego or mushroom, Mahon and truffle, a play on a grilled cheese that’s popular in Barcelona; as well as tortilla espanola, papas bravas and pan con tomate.
