Florida Avenue Bike Lanes. ANC6A Transportation Committee, chaired by Maura Dundon, met last Monday.  They heard Will Handsfield, Bicycle Program Specialist at District Department of Transportation give an update on the Florida Avenue, NE, traffic calming and protected bike lanes project.  Hansfield said the contract is ready to be let – the two-year project will reduce space for vehicles and add protected bike lanes to both sides of the corridor between 2nd and 14th Streets, NE.  For more:

Hill East Burgers. Word is from Eat DC that Hill East Burger – the smoked burger saloon coming to 1432 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE – hopes to open next month.  Here’s a peek inside Saturday morning.  I don’t know.  Maybe. 

PA Avenue CVS remains closed. CVS at 7th and Pennsylvania Avenue, SE, has been closed for several weeks.  Water damage.  Here a photo from a few weeks ago when they were drying out inside.  Early last week, CVS staff said remediation is still ongoing and it could be another couple of weeks before the store reopens.

Eastern Market Flea Vendor. Blind Date With A Book sets you up for a bind date with a newspaper-wrapped mystery volume from “a curation of highly rated, award winning, bestselling books.  We tell you the genre, year published, quote from a stranger on line review.”  Paperbacks are $9 – hardbacks $12. 

Here are the genres.

Eastern Market Vendor. Need a gift?  Here’s an idea from Zach Ammerman of Wild Places Prints.  He has 165+ hand-designed prints of maps including DC neighborhoods, Parks, Campuses, Gayborhoods, Queer Washington DC, DC Wards, Cherry Blossoms, and Farmers Markets.  Some of his best sellers include a map of Capitol Hill and a map of coffee Shops.  Here’s what he Tweeted recently:  “Here it is! 5 months of work drawing every structure, bridge, path, park, museum, rec center, or school (or damn well near it) in DC. Every single object on this map was painstakingly and individually drawn by me using no GIS or automation of any kind.”

This is the Wild Places artist – Zach – featured in a selfie at the Eastern Market Flea posted today on Twitter. He says he’ll be at Dupont Circle next Saturday.

The Week Ahead…

The week ahead looks quiet as the city empties of residents and fills with tourists.
