You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in D.C.

So the Flagship REI that opened in NoMa a little over a year ago was one of the most popular stories on PoPville for all of 2016. So I was walking by the other day and I was like, oh yeah, here’s the REI. By now you should realize I’m not 100% “normal”. Anyway it just got me thinking if people actually go to it. So this is another ‘just indulge my curiosity please’ posts. Have you been to the REI NoMa? If so, what do you buy there? How often do you go? Have you ever done any hikes/activities sponsored/set up by the store? For those who were incredibly excited about the prospect of them opening – did they meet your expectations?
You can see the first one here.
Old school readers may remember my affinity for tree stumps. You can imagine my joy when I spotted this guy in Shaw near U Street.
Speaking of needing a fix:

I have a Chevy Volt and use the charge point at 14 and U St, NW. When I just went there were two cars non charging that were using the spot. The one car had an occupant, and I asked her to move since it is an assigned spot. She was very rude and asked me what I was going to do about it (which was really not much), and then proceeded to tell me “f*ck off f*g”. Is there anything that could be done about these parking violations?”
