I hope you are in the comfort of your home and not at work on this brisk MLK Monday morning. The following is a rundown of some of the things on my mind today:
+ Chatman's D'vine Cravings's soft opening is today. I spoke with the proprietors on Saturday, who said the originally announced opening was delayed due to the DCRA process.
+ Sadly, a fire yesterday displaced the residents of 1535 9th Street. Thankfully all people and animals made it out of this painstakingly renovated row home unharmed.
+ The official ReNew Shaw vehicle got a parking ticket for not having angle parked/backed in last Sunday during church hours on 9th Street (something that I've never seen enforced before and that I figured wasn't required but simply allowed during those hours). Fair enough; I didn't move the car when I woke up on Sunday morning to accommodate the greater density that the temporary angled parking allows. I wonder, however, if cars that remain angled after the time period were likewise ticketed, or if other cars in clear violation of safety-oriented parking mandates (e.g., double parking next to Scripture Cathedral, parking in no parking zones close to the corners, etc.) were likewise ticketed.
Sorry for my silence of late. I haven't been sick or on vacation or anything, but have instead been loaded down here at work. I'll try to resume posting regularly soon.
