Hey, welcome back to the grind, kids! This Monday-feeling Tuesday got you down? How about a burger? Eater’s Essential 15 list recommends the Tune Inn’s patty melt and the Salt Line’s double patty and no-frills original in our neighborhood. We are totally adding the Valor Burger to this list while they update it. Eater DC

Should not paying your Metro fare be a crime? I get that it’s a hassle, but let’s just say that with this year’s homicide rate, we have bigger fish to fry than a couple of jerk kids turnstile-hopping, you know? Curbed

Speaking of Metro and WMATA, how about not having to wait 37 minutes for a D6 bus on a holiday or 17 minutes for a red-line train on Sunday night? (Both true stories from this holiday weekend.) If you become reliable, they will ride. Greater Greater Washington

Were you expecting a Peet’s to open across from Whole Foods on H Street NE? Sorry about that– the space is too darn weird, apparently. Eater

We’re with PoP on this one: NO ON #SouthCapitolHill. Do better market research, Whole Foods! PoPville

Well, what do you know? GoBus is launching service from Eastern Market on 10/15. That’s nice that we can now catch a bus to NYC from the heart of the Hill, but how about a little more police presence at Eastern Market plaza overall? Having an influx of visitors arriving in a prime destination for petty crime doesn’t seem like a very logical thing to do. Capitol Hill Corner

BIG SONIA will be screened tonight at the Library of Congress and DC Style is Real has the details. DC Style is Real

Speaking of fashion, help the Metropolitan Police identify and apprehend this fashionable suspect who was caught on security footage as possibly being the same man as one who held up the DTLR on H Street NE. Frozen Tropics

Hot stuff: SBOE elections. The Washington Post wonders why there is so much money flowing into them. WaPo

A great analysis by neighbor and THIH reader Mark Sussman on the near-demise of the dockless bike (we still have JUMPs). Greater Greater Washington

In which JDLand makes a Halloween-themed funny and shares tons of construction photos. JDLand

Renters, rejoice: Anita Bonds is fighting your fight for no sharp rent increases once your lease expires. (Does that also work retroactively for commercial tenants who get ousted from their Barracks Row location because of a horribly sharp rent increase, only to have that property sit vacant for years? Asking for a friend.) Urban Turf
