    DC news, events, and stuff we can discuss and maybe learn from. Maybe.

    Just let me do this, guys.

    I am both anti-violence on Metro and also anti-assholes on Metro, so I'm a bit conflicted. Hopefully he receives a reasonable sentence while the video still serves as deterrent for the kids who often act like shitheads. If it scares tourists off Metro, even better!

    FTA safety inspection report on WMATA came out today, and, as expected, it didn't go well for Metro

    Damn. I actually walked by that lady but at the time there were two cops and a handful of firefighters surrounding her.

    I love how the person didn't stop b/c he/she was afraid of "gang related issues," while pointing out that she was a normal woman in work clothes.

    I love the prince himself (and JD from JDland -they're really providing fantastic services for free) but there's at least one user-submitted post per day that goes horrifically wrong for OP, and the commentariat is brutal.

    My friend was living on l Street northwest but she just moved to somewhere that I don't remember the name of

    I feel like I was every main bar district though. We did a lot of hopping. Will probably do the same

    So, the Pope is coming. Everything is going to be a mess downtown.

    115 so far this year (as of Monday). Up 50% from last year. http://dcist.com/2015/09/four_weekend_homicides_2015.php

    Cops arrested and charged this prick though.

    Summer is a scary time in the projects. Can't wait until it's cold out again and the loitering slows down considerably.

    what is everyone's hood? also go to restaurants and bars?

    Petworth checking in.

    Bars: I like the dives. Wonderland. Looking Glass. DC Reynolds. DC9. Velvet Lounge. Little Miss Whiskies. Petworth Citizen. Rock and Roll Hotel sometimes.

    Restaurants: the only restaurant that I can say is lights out and affordable every time I go is Toki Underground. Looking for other suggestions.

    I live on U Street right now and we have luckily avoided most of the violence this summer. Come next week I will be a home owner in Eckington though so we'll see how that shakes out.

    Do you live near the 6th and P post? That's the only one I've come across.

    Crazy to me how expensive that area got with so many projects still active. It's like a couple apartment buildings went up, a few restaurants opened, and everyone assumed the gentrification was complete. Uhh, not yet.

    They can start raising funds by charging all the goddamn softball and kickball for-profit leagues that make large swaths of the Mall unusable for anyone else every day.

    Flying up to see some buddies for Halloween but I'm coming up Thursday. I'll have two days of bumming around the city by myself while they're working. I've only ever driven through DC before. Suggestions?

    check out National Mall one day: Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, Natural History Museum, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Capitol building, White House. You will sleep well that night from all the walking.

    suggestion two: Eat at Toki Underground.
