“Dear PoPville,

Curious as to whether anyone has more clarity on Metro not charging fares when end up not taking the metro? I thought they were not charging for non-rides, but I noticed this morning when I gave up on the red line after waiting twenty minutes and realizing that it just wasn’t WMATA’s day, that I was charged the base fare on my card. Just wondering if you need to talk to the station manager to refund it each time (which seems very impractical), or if it is supposed to automatically happen?”

Ed. Note: Didn’t someone say that Metro reimburses at the end of the month? Am I imagining that?

“Dear PoPville,

Me and my friend saw this super sexist and creepy sign for the bathrooms at Proof DC.

We asked a woman working there about it and she said they got more complaints about it after Trump’s election. She also said they have gotten some complaints, and after one woman got really upset they took it down but then put it back out. We told them we would suggest they take it down permanently. Either way, it’s a crazy picture to instruct people where the bathroom is.”

“Hot Hot Hot: Fundraiser for Climate Action

A group of concerned, sustainability-minded individuals are co-hosting a benefit with the Midlands Beer Garden in Park View to combat climate change on Friday, April 28th, from 6-10pm. This event is part of the People’s Climate March “Week of Action”.

Kegs have been generously donated by Anderson Valley Brewing and Uinta Brewing. Any beers from these taps and all other proceeds will benefit Earthjustice, a nonprofit environmental law organization, fighting for action on climate change, environmental justice, and the health of our communities across the country.

In addition to drinking beers for a great cause, attendees will have the opportunity to take action and make their voices heard. The event will include stations for making rally signs for the People’s Climate March on April 29th and writing letters to lawmakers and local representatives. (more…)

The sighting was reported on the Cleveland Park Listserv Wednesday afternoon:

“Saw a huge coyote run across Woodley Road into Tregaron today about noon. It looked like a small wolf – I thought it was a deer at first. These actually mated with wolves on their way east through Canada.”

This is not the first sighting in the Cleveland Park area. Also, back in 2014 a dog was attacked by coyotes in Rock Creek Park near the Golf Course. And last August a reader thought they spotted a Coywolf in SW.

Thanks to the owners for sending a quick update on Rustik’s replacement in Bloomingdale – Tyber Creek Wine Bar and Kitchen:

“We will be opening next Thursday, May 4th at 5:00pm – our typical hours will be Monday – Friday 5:00 pm to close and Saturday & Sunday 11:00am to close. But our first weekend we will be Thursday – Saturday 5:00pm to close and Sunday 11:00am – close.

We are really excited to be part of the Bloomingdale community and hope to provide a comfortable neighborhood restaurant with wood fired food, a curated wine program and seasonal beers & cocktails. Our Chef, Kerry Tate, has developed an innovative but approachable menu with dishes such as roast half chicken over bread salad, wood oven mussels in tomato fennel broth and a lamb flatbread topped with arugula salad- to name a few of my favorites.”
