On June 11, Margaret Ruth “Miss Peggy” Dickie, 79, a resident of Carillon House (2500 Wisconsin Ave.), died after being hit by a Peapod grocery delivery truck at Calvert Street and 37th Street. The truck was stopped at a red light on 37th Street, then turned right onto Calvert, where it hit Miss Peggy, who was in the crosswalk heading north, according to the Washington Post.

The Metropolitan Police Department’s Major Crash Unit is investigating the case, according to Lieutenant Ronald Wilkins. “As of yet, there have been no charges filed against the driver of the truck,” Wilkins writes in an email. Charges could be filed in the future “if the investigation reveals negligence or impairment on the behalf of the driver,” he adds. The driver is cooperating fully in the investigation, according to Wilkins.

Plans for a rooftop deck featuring drinks and lite fare at the Savoy Suites Hotel (2505 Wisconsin Ave.) has some near neighbors worried about  late-night noise and parking problems, according to the Northwest Current. The deck is part of an ongoing renovation that will end with the hotel being renamed “The Glover Park Hotel.”

“The hotel is now working with its residential neighbors who worry about noise and parking impacts,” the Current states. “The Glover Park neighborhood commission voted unanimously to oppose the roof deck’s alcohol license if no agreement is reached with neighbors by the city’s Aug. 10 deadline.”

Mad Fox Taproom (2218 Wisconsin Ave.) is planning an early-August opening, its owner tells the Washington Business Journal. The newspaper story offers a slideshow of interior shots of the fully renovated restaurant, formerly home to Mayfair & Pine.

Screen Shot 2015-06-08 at 9.24.56 AMAn exhibition by a local art duo called Duly Noted Painters opens Saturday, June 13 at Bourbon (2348 Wisconsin Ave.). “Similar to jazz musicians, at times we work together simultaneously,” the artists, Kurtis Ceppetelli and Matthew Malone, wrote in a statement. “Unlike traditional collaborations, our process does not adhere to a set formula dictating who does what. This allows for dramatic changes in mood, color, and feeling within each piece and leads to surprising and often unexpected results.” The mixed-media artwork will remain on display at the bar through June 20.

There’s a free opening event on June 13 at 6:30 pm. Guests who RSVP in advance will be eligible to win a free Duly Noted sketch. For more info, visit https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sketch-show-tickets-17032239888.

A building permit has been issued for a new Rite Aid in the old Glover Park Hardware space (2251 Wisconsin Ave.), according to the Washington Business Journal. “Work will include demolition and installation of a rear elevator and a sprinkler system,” WBJ reports.

The dearly missed hardware store will return to the neighborhood soon, in the vacant space next to Breadsoda (2233 Wisconsin Ave.). Due to delays related to the installation of a freight elevator, the store won’t reopen until mid-June at the earliest, the owner tells us.
