I’ve seen a lot of weird stuff over the years and this might have just skyrocketed to the top. What the hell?
I saw this magazine tied in front of the Suntrust Bank on Columbia and 18th NW yesterday. The magazine cover talked about 100 top women in business I think, and it’s in a rope knot. It’s not a noose knot, but still a weird knot. And it’s with real rope. Someone had to go through some effort. Those poles aren’t short.
I honestly can’t tell if this is problematic but thought I’d let you guys decide.”
But seriously, this sounds bonkers all around.
“At around 1pm today, the manager of the Chopt in Union Station assaulted a customer upset that he’d been waiting half an hour for a salad he’d called ahead for that they were late to make. The Manager tried to take his phone, made a mess, and wrestled w/the Customer. The customer was allowed to leave after police were called. The Manager was taken away in Handcuffs.
It was insane. All the guy did was get upset that his salad was late, and say he was gonna write a bad review. Both of which he’s entitled to do. The Manager went nuts on him.”

Checkpoint? Outhouse? $4000/mo rental?
I walk to work via NY Avenue east to west and I’ve noticed that Lafayette Square is barricaded in the mornings more and more often. What’s the deal? The weird thing is, you would think it would be for heightened security reasons, right? Interestingly, it’s not necessarily barricaded when foreign dignitaries are staying at Blair House, so what gives? Why the nuisance? Why can’t they wait to barricade after the morning commuters have passed through? (more…)
Want to preface that it’s laughable now.
Here’s the lowdown:
It’s 9:30 PM Thursday and we walk over to City Center after our movie. We stop in the plaza where Fig & Olive + Del Frisco’s + DBGB are connected.
My girlfriend and I were hugging closely and kissing a bit and chatting affectionately. And then a security guard walks over and says “Excuse me. There’s no public displays of affection here.”
Guard: “Yeah they just called it over the radio.” (more…)
Thanks to Meg for sending from Columbia Heights. Sticky note attack because of illegal parking? Even so, I don’t think it’s a good idea to mess a whip that sweet.
Wild. Thanks to William McKenna for sending:
“When the morning sun hits a new building on L St. NW, it casts vibrant green &/or pink light. Commuters who notice the light look confused & spin around looking for the source of the light. Do you think that was the architect’s intention? (more…)

I’ve been living in the Mount Vernon Triangle area for many years now and as all these new buildings have popped up seemingly overnight, I’m left wondering what is going on with the corner of 6th and K NW? There’s this bizarre looking building that’s sort of dilapidated and on wooden stilt-like structures. (more…)
