From an email:
“Momofuku CCDC is celebrating their third anniversary this month with a fried chicken and dumpling party. This has been a landmark year for the restaurant, welcoming a new chef who has completely transformed the menu, and there’s no better way to celebrate than over food. Executive Chef Tae Strain has invited Danny Lee and Scott Drewno of ChiKo, Tim Ma of Kyirisan, and Spike Gjerde of A Rake’s Progress to prepare their take on dumplings and fried chicken. Beer and drinks will be served with a portion of sales being donated to DC Central Kitchen.

TL writes: “Sad to see them go, but if they expanded their concept into a full Italian deli closer to the Petworth Metro or on upper 14th Street, they’d crush it.”

From the D.C. Department of Health:
The Washington Post reported:
“Three people in upper Northwest Washington have been attacked by a rabid raccoon, D.C.health officials said.
In a statement issued Monday night, the city’s Department of Health said the raccoon was captured “after attacking three people in the Chevy Chase neighborhood.”
Be safe Chevy Chase! Or is it Wakefield or Forest Hills? Be safe Washington D.C.!!
And I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the legendary garbage truck raccoon.
Oh my God. The sable, the salmon – DO NOT sleep on the Salmon BLT – perhaps the best seafood sandwich in all Washington D.C. Neopol Savory Smokery is quite possibly the most under-hyped but best seafood in town. They currently have an outpost in Union Market and when I stopped by the new spot on Saturday they looked about ready to open in Georgetown on Grace Street. Grace Street, by the by, has quietly become a phenomenal little street not to be missed, bookmarked by Chaia Tacos and Dog Tag Bakery on one end and Sundevich and Grace Street Coffee on the other with more good stuff in between. Neopol will fit in on the block quite nicely. (more…)

Ugh, the scent! Crunch, crunch.
Now I’ve gone and made it worse.
Don’t eat these berries.
