A weekly roundup of interesting miscellany from our fellow neighborhood bloggers.

On behalf of the new owners of 1351 H, NE, the Rosedale Citizens’ Alliance asks:  What would you build there?  (Seriously, check it out.  You really get to vote and share ideas.  There are some cool ones being bandied about.)

You think we have it bad with the regular helicopter flyovers?  Borderstan confirms they’ve had an uptick in air traffic lately due to Occupy DC.  As I write, one seems to be hovering in the blocks between my house and H St, NE.  Occupy Biergarten Haus??

The Triangle reported that Chinatown will soon be introduced to the beauty that is the Elvis pie when Dangerously Delicious Pies opens a new spot at 901 7th St., NW. (H/T to In Shaw.)

Southwest … the Little Quadrant that Could reports that the Z-Burger at Waterfront Station opened Tuesday.  Maybe now they’ll have time to finish up the one in Columbia Heights with the sign that says “Coming Summer 2011”.

Ghosts of DC has a crazy story about murder and mayhem in 1912 at the National Capital Brewing Company formerly at 14 & D, SE.

The Georgetown Metropolitan chronicles the businesses that have closed and those that have opened since last year in The State of Georgetown 2012.

DC Metrocentric has a great photo of what the 800 block of 9th St, NW looked like before it was demolished to make way for the old convention center.  Which was demolished to make way for … a giant parking lot … which is now a giant hole with the promise of eventually (finally) becoming City Center DC.
