Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

This is not a forecast that screams, hey, let's hang out in a beer garden and socialize! So, with apologies, I am postponing the planned May 17 happy hour until a future date as yet undecided, when people won't need umbrellas and galoshes to get to the destination.
But, in return for bailing on the loyal readers who were ready to make the trek in rain or snow or dark of night, I have something that might be of interest.
And that is, I think I have come up with a way to quickly and easily share small tidbits of news, as they break, without waiting to pile them up in tidbits posts that turned out to be my undoing. And not just tidbits I find (since I won't always be on the lookout), but tidbits that readers pass along in the comments, as they have been doing for so many months.
So, starting now, you'll now see at the bottom of posts a section called "Tidbits to Tide You Over." These will be a mix of things I've come across along with *vetted* items from readers, and each will be marked with who posted them. All coming from the comment threads. Here's an example.
This will be an experiment--after all, my name (well, my initials) are on the masthead, and I have to be able to vouch for everything I elevate.
The JDLand rules of reporting and evaluating what is news will still apply. For instance, no rumors will be elevated. Longtime commenter/loyalists who have earned a level of trust will be more likely to see their tidbits elevated than someone who just registered. Pure advertisements will not be elevated. (Feel free to buy an ad, though!)
And I might suggest that commenters both try to keep any tidbit offerings short and sweet, and to not try to flood the zone with every little thing--you don't want to get on my bad side. And I reserve the right to do light editing when elevating content.
But if this works, it will actually succeed in making JDLand an even better destination for the latest in neighborhood goings-on than it has been in a long time. And I don't see it taking much of my time, leaving me better rested to write the longer posts on subjects I am interested in.
Enjoy your deputization, loyalists, but use your powers wisely.
And keep checking back to see what's new.

And when I say "keep it short and sweet," I mean, don't suddenly decide you need to write like a reporter. The way y'all have been doing it up to now is just fine. Don't go changing to try and please me.



202_cyclist says: (5/16/18 4:32 PM)
Have I earned the JD Land level of trust?

Tonight's Nats - Yankees game is also cancelled. Rain, rain, go away! In all seriousness, I ran by the waterfront this morning. Due South Dockside and Osteria's outdoor venue are going to have to worry about flooding if this rain persists until Friday/Saturday.

@202: Re: trust, I guess We Shall See!

I was considering offering a coveted JDLand t-shirt to the commenter who has gotten the most tidbits elevated at the end of the year, but I then realized it would begin an arms race.



202_cyclist says: (5/16/18 5:53 PM)
That's right-- I never received my JD Land t-shirt...



JD says: (5/16/18 9:15 PM)
Another M Street move happening, but a lot less exciting: WBJ says that Unity Health Care is leaving Maritime Plaza at 12th and M SE and taking 27,000 square feet at 1100 New Jersey (the CVS building at New Jersey and M). link
#office #1100nj


JD says: (5/16/18 9:27 PM)
I will also have to start thinking about whether to build a notification system for when tidbits get elevated, for the crazies who really want to know everything immediately.

Lots of possibilities. This is the creativity I get when I'm not feeling like a failure.


CJBabyDaddy says: (5/17/18 12:08 AM)
OMG, JD‘s got a bad side? Why wasn‘t I warned? Just the thought of it makes me want to re-read the new guidelines and find a way to behave.

A Post article on affordable housing in the District says that the Parcel L project in the Yards is going to be called The Estate, and that 53 of its 264 apartments will be for tenants earning 50 or less of AMI: link Parcel L project page: link

Charles Allen's Office (@CMCharlesAllen) tweeted "2019 budget includes funding for... a connector between Canal Park and Garfield Park..."

What is the connector between Canal Park and Garfield Park? Resurrecting the underpass skate park and graffiti gallery, once CSX is done with construction?


JD says: (5/17/18 5:18 PM)
Wow, the Park connector, that brings back some memories. From 2007: link and link


Ampersand says: (5/18/18 10:04 AM)
Probably old news, but I biked up the newly reopened 5th St a couple of days ago. It's not great, but cars can get through again. I'm hoping 4th comes back soon!


JD says: (5/18/18 1:03 PM)
The latest Virginia Avenue Tunnel "Coffee with Chuck" presentation has some nice photos of the progress and timelines for the rest of the cross-street closures and reopenings along with dates for the restoration of Virginia Avenue itself: link

Had Oath Pizza last night for the first time and really liked it. Staff was friendly too which isn’t always the case in DC.


VelocityChris says: (5/19/18 9:35 AM)
I'm really annoyed and disappointed the Navy Yard Wells Fargo is closing!


JD says: (5/19/18 11:40 AM)
Chris--is there a sign in the window? Some other type of notification? Take of photo of it?


JD says: (5/19/18 11:45 AM)
Construction permit issued for Wiseguy Pizza:
202 M ST SE
PERMIT ISSUED 05/18/2018
NA / ALTERATION AND REPAIR / CONSTRUCTION
EXISTING PIZZA RESTAURANT - NEW OWNER, NEW EQUIPMENT + NEW GELATO & COFFEE SERVICE. MINOR HVAC, PLUMBING & ELECTRIC


VelocityChris says: (5/19/18 12:58 PM)
JD-yes, there are signs in the window and I received a paper in the mail. Closing in August I think (branch AND ATM!), I'll take a pic next time I walk by and post if someone else doesn't first.

Also JD-you've still got that scoop bug apparently, I just got home from a run to HT and walking past Wiseguy noticed the door propped open and sounds of a skilsaw in there but you beat me to it! :)


202_cyclist says: (5/19/18 5:29 PM)
There was a big debate a while ago on this site about whether exterior work for the Half Street project would begin before the All Star game. The windows have been installed on the first floor.


jdc says: (5/20/18 3:10 PM)
Speaking of Half Street improvements, within the last few weeks additional light poles were being installed on the sidewalk that fronts the Metro entrance. NO actual repair to that disaster of a temporary sidewalk, though.


202_cyclist says: (5/20/18 3:38 PM)
There is a sign at the top of the F1rst building, “8 + 92 = CROBOP” (In Cyrillic). I have a good guess what this is referring to but can anyone confirm? This reminds me of the good ol’ sign wars last year at the Camden South building.


JD says: (5/20/18 3:41 PM)
Twitter says it's "collusion." And those are Ovechkin and Kuznetsov's numbers.


202_cyclist says: (5/20/18 4:05 PM)
So it is referring to the Caps? They’re colluding with Tampa?


Westnorth says: (5/21/18 2:36 PM)
June 24 is the start date for the revised SE/SW Circulator: Eastern Market - Navy Yard JDLand Cap Riv - Waterfront Station - Wharf - L'Enfant Plaza.

I plan to observe the occasion with a pub crawl!


202_cyclist says: (5/21/18 3:31 PM)
Speaking of pub crawl, when is the famous JD Land happy hour rescheduled to?


GarfieldPark says: (5/21/18 5:58 PM)
(Also) Speaking of Eastern Market, did ya'll see a Sephora will be opening on the corner there? My wife is a happy camper. "Summer" 2018.
