On a happier note, I am excited for a bowling alley. Now if we could just get a few pool tables too, I'd be thrilled!

@walt, someone on twitter speculated that it might be Punch Bowl Social ( link
which is looking for space in DC. Their website even speculates a 2018 DC opening, though no location has actually been announced. If it's them, then we'll definitely get some pool tables. Even Lucky Strike has a pool table section of their space, so regardless, hopefully we'll get some!

The Anacostia Riverkeeper organization will be hosting a clean-up of the mighty Anacostia River on April 8 from 9 - 12 PM at Anacostia Park. I've volunteered with a couple of river clean-up events in the past and this is an excellent opportunity to help give back and improve the health of this great river. If you are interested in volunteering, please RSVP at info@
There will also be coffee and doughnuts for volunteers. link

Love your blog on the Navy Yard and bummed to see you taking a hiatus from these wonderful stories and pics. My thoughts are with you and Mr. JDLand!
says: (3/15/17 7:42 PM)
Any chance someone here can continue JD Land's wonderful blog replete with these informative stories and fun reader comments?
says: (3/15/17 7:50 PM)
I am a regular reader of the blog. I both live and work in the neighborhood. I have never before submitted a comment, but I wanted to write to offer my condolences on your loss of your wonderful husband.
says: (3/15/17 7:55 PM)
Oh, JD, what very sad news. So many of us, in so many neighborhoods, have you in our thoughts.
says: (3/15/17 8:20 PM)
I've been a reader for years and this is my first post...I just wanted to share my heartfelt condolences to you and your entire family

May we all cross the bridge as loved and respected as Bill Walsh.
says: (3/15/17 8:41 PM)
Amen CJBabyDaddy. Most assuredly he will. My deepest condolences to JD, and to his entire family. May his memory always be a blessing.
says: (3/15/17 9:09 PM)
JD-- I want to offer my condolences. Our thoughts are with you.

My post on Facebook about my beloved Mr. JDLand:
(I assume there will be one here before long as well, but not quite yet)
says: (3/16/17 8:39 AM)
Oh JD, there is so much sorrow in JDLand and beyond. You and your family are in all our thoughts. Mr. JDLand was an editor among editors and a man among men. He will be missed so badly.
says: (3/16/17 9:39 AM)
JD, I'm so very sorry for your loss and that of your friends and family.
In Bill's memory and your honor, I've donated to link
in the hopes that more people experience a career like his and fewer experience the Stupidest Thing Ever. I hope that others in JDLand will consider something similar. If there are other ways we can honor him and support you, I hope you will let us know eventually, and that you take all the time you need to do whatever feels right.
says: (3/16/17 10:35 AM)
JD--there are no words. I am so very sorry to hear this news. As you know, you have a huge community here that supports you.
says: (3/16/17 11:23 AM)
Your lovely tribute brought tears to my eyes. I am so sorry to hear of your loss, and send my deepest condolences to you and your family.
