Ack! It’s my face! But yes, we have limited quantities of our Pride THIH t-shirt, with part of the proceeds benefiting SMYAL. Want one? Send an email to info@thehillishome.com with your size details. They run a little big, btw.

Happy Pride month! As you stop to admire the rainbow banners festooning our local businesses and homes (as well as corporate America), please take a moment to reflect on how, despite many current setbacks that might tell a different story, we have much to celebrate in terms of how far we’ve come in terms of openness and acceptance. This doesn’t mean we should be complacent, but that we should keep up the good fight and love harder and deeper than we ever have. And remember: Love is patient and kind. It’s in the Bible, so it must mean something to some folks! Stay strong, beautiful people, and stay supportive, dear allies.


Great news for Union Station–– new property manager Lexmark has retained Papadopoulos to engage and lease commercial space at the station. The article mentions that Starbucks closed at Union Station last year because of safety concerns, but we have to wonder whether the biggest safety concern for that particular Starbucks was that they were trying to unionize at some point.

The Hill Rag asked DDOT for clarification on what the new protected bike lane and bus lanes mean for people. Tl;dr, Park on the bus lane, except for at peak hours, M-F, -6:30 p.m. Now if DDOT just hurried up and updated their signage….

Oh hey– looks like Chef Tim Ma is indeed opening a restaurant at the former ABC Pony space (you know, like we shared with you back in October). It’s called Any Day Now. Expect creative Taiwanese-American dishes (scallion pancakes sound good!), as well as a lovely co-working space through 4 p.m. Washingtonian

Postponing the disbursement of funds dedicated to extend the DC Streetcar into Ward 7 for two (more) years is essentially a slap in the face to the District’s eastern communities and contradicts the calls for equity that council members have sought to uphold. A poignant letter to the editor in this week’s Washington Post. We agree.

Speaking of the Streetcar, someone sent PoPville a photo of a sign announcing the system, which is apparently still up at 14th and H NE. 2013! And we still don’t have an extension to Benning Road? Honestly, that’s just sad.

McCarthy went to get some Chips and Queso from the Navy Yard Chipotle and was foiled in his efforts, as the location did not have the snack. According to the Examiner, the saga took them to “the H Street Chipotle” which does not exist. Please, people, this is important: Do not fabricate Chipots locations for the sake of a story we can sink our teeth into.

Yesterday at around lunchtime, an employee at Tony’s Place (the one on the corner, not Tony’s Breakfast on 14th) was shot after an altercation. The employee seems to be pulling through. If you were around the area at lunchtime yesterday, talk to police. FOX-5

Over the weekend, the Mayor’s office suffered a tremendous loss: Linda Harlee Harper, who was the director of gun prevention and violence in the District, died on Friday at age 58. Washington Informer
