Thanks to Bry for sending this jaw dropping look at the Wharf development:

“From Hain’s Point park – dang, what a change”

Ed. Note: I was just thinking how the new buildings on U Street don’t drop my jaw anymore, the development, while still huge has almost become routine but I actually drove past this one in SW on Sunday and I believe I uttered something like “holy sheeeeeet.”

smash vpp

A reader reports:

“My car window was broken out this morning on P St SW, about 3 blocks from the Waterfront Metro. Only the Visitor Parking Permit was taken from the vehicle, and no other “valuables” (I live in Columbia Heights so I know enough not to leave anything visible in my car). What is interesting is that when I called my insurance company, the rep who answered told me it was the THIRD call that he alone had received this morning where a car was broken into in DC and only the Visitor Parking Permit was taken.

And this is not a bad thing! Shake Shack Logan Circle and Navy Yard opened last month and also has locations in Dupont, Union Station and outside the Spy Museum. Next up from a press release:

“Officials from Hoffman-Madison Waterfront (HMW), the developer of The Wharf, today announced that Shake Shack will open in Fall 2017. The Wharf is the $2 billion, mile-long waterfront neighborhood along the Washington Channel of the Potomac River—the new food destination of the nation’s capital.

“Dear PoPville,

The last few years we have seen quite a few large yellow jacket like wasps (do we get those here?) flying around our backyard. Not enough to be a nest in our yard, but I suspect one is nearby. They used to linger along our shared fence away from our deck.

But, this afternoon while our dog was enjoying some sun on the deck, I noticed they were trying to get through the screen door. At one point there were 2 of them on the door at once, they kept flying into it to try and get through and there were a few more flying around the deck.

Wondering if anyone has suggestions for deterring them? Plants, herbs, traps, etc?”

Ed. Note: But remember if you see a honey bee swarm don’t panic call or text (202) 255-4318 or email [email protected]
