Since January, 2003
            
 Sliding from Before to After

Rounding up some recent small items, for those who don't wander by the site frequently enough to keep up with the Tidbits To Tide You Over offerings:
* SHOTS FIRED: Apparently gunshots were heard on Half Street SE near the Big Stick on Sunday night, and MPD reports that a suspect was arrested for the unlawful discharge of a firearm.
* SOUTH CAP OVAL DETAILS: If you really want to go into the weeds (or grass, or trees, or paving stones, or pedestrian flow) of the two traffic ovals coming to either side of the new Douglass Bridge, these two documents supporting final approval for the designs from the National Capital Planning Commission are for you. Also, WashCycle has a detailed look at the final proposed designs, from a bicycling point of view.
* PUNCH BOWL SOCIAL: From Twitter: New ABRA license app for Punch Bowl Social (1250 Half St SE; ANC 6D); "food made from scratch"; food with "social activities"; 250 seats; 40-seat sidewalk cafe; 20-seat summer garden; live entertainment
* BUILDING A WALL? (no, not that one): The Navy wants to build a flood wall around the Navy Yard that could "increase the flood risk to neighboring properties." (Bloomberg)
* CIRCA COMING SOON: Signage is up, training has begun, and Circa says on its Facebook page that its opening date announcement is "coming soon."
* CAPPER SENIORS COMING DOWN: Demolition began last week on the remnants of the Capper Seniors building at 5th and Virginia, SE. DCist has a summary of a report on the fire and its aftermath by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. The official cause remains classified as undetermined, but there are theories--and ATF also faulted DC Fire officials for being too cautious about letting search crews and "other agents" into the building after the blaze. UPDATE: Here is the report itself.

Thanks for the updates! A lot of positives going on around the neighborhood, but the apparent uptick in gun shots is very concerning. And the report on the Capper Seniors building is still head scratching even after a few days to digest it. It’ll be interesting to see what (if anything) happens now that Edgewood’s incompetence and negligence have been established as well as DCHA’s sub standard (non existent?) oversight. Sadly, given that these shortcomings were pretty well known before this tragedy, I’m a little pessimistic that any lasting changes will be made. But hopefully this report will finally get the right folks’ attention.

well put @conngs0 something really needs to be done about both, here is hoping some action is actually taken!

From Nextdoor:

The police woke us up at 2:45 am this morning (February 7th) to positively identify my husband as the owner of a Cadillac Escalade parked at the corner of 3rd and L SE that had all 4 wheels stolen. The police were alerted by a Lyft driver who had dropped someone off on the corner some time before. The car was already stripped and on crates, so there isn’t a description of suspects. If anyone has any additional information, please contact the DC police as a report was filed.

Cruddy photo thanks to not being quick enough on the draw before the stoplight changed, but here is all that is left of Capper Seniors. (I *think* I read that they are keeping the concrete staircase/elevator towers and will build the replacement building around them.) Guess I have another entry for the Demolished Buildings gallery.

We have an official opening date for the neighborhood's next food and beverage offering. Circa announced today that it's grand opening will be Monday, Feb. 11, at 4 pm, in the ground floor of the new 99 M office building on the southwest corner of 1st and M SE. link

Did any of you win the El Bebe opening night contest? We're lucky winners! I'm looking forward to trying this new restaurant.

There's a couple of (not nice) references to the neighborhood in the most recent iteration of "bad articles about the mundane lives of low level staffers in the Trump administration" -- link

I figure we'll get more of these every couple of months for the next couple years, and then we'll get a new batch of dumb articles about how the Trump staffers used to go to Mission, but the new Kamala Harris staffers prefer old neighborhood standbys like Bluejacket or whatever. No one will mention that the reason new people move to the neighborhood is because that's where a sizable fraction of new units are being built.


CJBabyDaddy says: (2/8/19 5:01 PM)
Hey, Circa, I’ll be out-of-town on the 11th & 12th. Be best and put off that opening night ‘til the 13th. Thanks!


CJBabyDaddy says: (2/8/19 9:50 PM)
Hey, everybody, if I’m interpreting 202cyclist correctly, I think he just invited us all to join him for unlimited tacos and tequila at El Bebe on his grand prize tab! 202, you’re the best! Just to be clear, what date and time?

@malatesta: re the not-nice references to the neighborhood. I think some old-school landowners just want Georgetown to remain relevant. But with each new generation...


202_cyclist says: (2/11/19 5:05 PM)
If anyone is interested, there are some great deals today on the TravelZoo site for Osteria Morini and District Winery.
