709 7th Street, NW

The cashier tells me Bed, Bath & Beyond’s last day will be June 1st. For the curious, I came away with a decent kitchen knife for 5 bucks. I got my eye on a vacuum cleaner but I’m gambling on a deeper discount – they were only at 30% last weekend. The world market had some Icelandic row but I wasn’t ready to take that 2 buck gamble… Read More

Lemon Cuisine of India opened back in December 2016, previously home to Crios Mexican.

Thomas reports:

“It was one of mine and my wife’s go-to take-out spots. I tried calling to place an order Monday, and got no response, figured it was just a one-off issue. They’re normally closed on Tuesdays, so when I called Wednesday night and still got no answer, I got suspicious. Read More


Oof. Thanks to Beth for sending: “Carroll Ave in Takoma DC, right in front of Takoma Central and Yoga District, across the street from Starbucks. I was surprised to see a tire theft on a main street, but this area is very quiet overnight. And these thieves move fast. I spoke with the car’s driver. It’s a rental – she just moved to DC from NYC yesterday.”

It had been 7 days since our last stolen wheels report.


“Dear PoPville,

I live at 1st and R St. NW near Big Bear Cafe in Bloomingdale. was awakened at 2:44am this morning by an unusually loud, low-flying helicopter. It seemed to be making repeated passes right over our house in intervals of about 30 seconds (i.e. never straying far from directly overhead. Objects on shelves and nightstand and walls in my room were rattling when the helicopter passed over our house. This lasted for quite some time — approximately 20 minutes. Any idea what was going on?”

A few folks also inquired @PoPville on twitter and Alan found from US Park Police that: “The Eagle was assisting MPD with a critical missing 70 y.o. with dementia.”
