Washington, DC

17th between H and I Street, NW

Whoa, wild. Thanks to Natalia for finding out who’s replacing the former Taylor Gourmet near Farragut Square – LebTav:

“Whether you visit our LT Cafe, LEBTAV or LT Market locations, you will find yourself grabbing a bite while on the go, or picking up prepared dishes from the grab and go section to take home. Relax in a casual setting, or call ahead for pickup, either way, you’re going to love it!”

“Dear PoPville,

I’m wondering if anyone else has been punched during rush hour outside of the Farragut North metro. The first time it happened to me, a couple months ago, I figured it was some kind of weird fluke. The second time, this morning, it occurred to me that this must be a thing someone does frequently – punch commuters in the side? Read More

“Dear PoPville,

I’m curious if you know anything about a man who sits on the 15th Street side of McPherson Square each morning and says good morning to everyone. I bike by ~6:45am most mornings and get a very nice “good morning, biker!” that never fails to make my day. In any case, thought somone might know something about him and I would love to know his story.”

From an email:

“I work at a ADC Mapstore on 17th Street exit of the Farragut West Metro Station on the Orange and Blue line. We have been located in DC for about 40 years . We will be closing our doors next week on the Aug 14 forever. Most of our store is 50- 80 percent off.”

I always liked this store (1636 I Street NW). However, I always thought it must be tough for them to make enough sales to pay rent in a downtown spot like this. Very sad to see them go.

Ed. Note: I was graciously offered an extra discount, which I have declined.
