Thanks to Annie for letting us know:
“I just wanted to share that Harrar Coffee & Roastery in Park View is re-opening on Monday! They have been closed throughout the pandemic, only selling individual bags of beans through online orders, and also had some roadwork in front of the shop that delayed opening. The roadwork is now done and they’re back to normal hours for grab & go coffee or outdoor cafe seating, starting on Monday.”
822 H St, NE (though actually located on 9th Street)
Chupacabra tweets the sad news:
“We are sad to announce the closing of @chupacabraDC next Sat 8/8/20. We have been part of the neighborhood for almost 10 years! Dine-in frozen margarita pitchers are now $15 until we close!“

There has been an abandoned car parked in front of my apartment building for about 4 months now. It’s in seemingly perfect shape (2010ish Honda CRV), is in a ParkMobile metered spot, and only has a couple tickets. It has MD plates and really hasn’t moved from this metered spot in 4 months – should I be reporting this to someone in DC? I’m more concerned for the owner’s well being as I can’t imagine why nobody would have come back to it in so long knowing it’s in a metered spot.”

Would love to hear from readers about any options out there for DC residents to join swim clubs around the DMV. It seems most of them have restrictions based on residence. While you can buy a pool pass for MoCo pools, it would be great to be part of a private club community that is affordable.”
Another reader sends this interesting option from swimply “Book a local private pool by the hour”. Anyone ever use them?
Ed. Note: We are supposed to get an update about D.C. public pools on August 1st.
From the Mayor’s morning briefing:

Major construction is about to start on the row house next to mine. Since my family and me are all at home right now, I think we’ll need to rent a place to stay for about month to escape the noise. If we’re trying to save money and stay safe from COVID, what are the best options for us?”
