Water Your Trees!

GM is always haranguing you to water your street trees. Well now consider the haranguing elevated to vociferous haranguing. Other than a light drizzle  yesterday, and a possible downpour today, it has has basically not rained at all in DC for over a month.

That is really bad! And unusual! And it’s really bad for street trees especially. So please, please, please: if you have a relatively young tree on your block, water it at least 20 gallons¬†every week. That means filling the tree bag, if it has one, or letting a hose lightly water the roots for a half and hour. Continue reading

Help GM Choose a Paint Color

GM and family are having their house painted in a couple weeks. But a final paint color hasn’t been picked yet. There are five candidates, which have been painted in squares on the front of the house. Taking an idea from a neighbor several blocks south, GM is opening it up to crowd sourcing.

So if you’re walking up 33rd St. over the next week or so, use one of the chalk sticks to leave your vote for your favorite. Each member of GM’s family has a preference, so the public’s preference might help make the final call.

  • Doggett family sells ownership in the Wells Fargo building on M St. No changes in tenants expected though.

Indian Restaurant Coming to Former Dolcezza Space

As GM first reported back in June as a rumor, an Indian restaurant is taking over the space at Wisconsin and Q formerly occupied by Dolcezza. Signage indicates it will be called Bharati.

There is no evidence online of a restaurant of that name. But from the signage inside, it would appear to be a fast casual design. That would make sense for such a small building. Continue reading
