Keep an eye on your belongings when you’re out and about. Thieves have been making off with unguarded valuables lately. Some examples from recent police reports:
• On February 8, a shopper left her purse unattended in a cart in the parking garage at Safeway (1855 Wisconsin Ave.). She later discovered that she was missing $300 in cash, several credit cards, and a New Jersey driver’s license.
• On January 28, a shopper left her purse unattended in a cart at Whole Foods (2323 Wisconsin Ave.). A “suspicious female” in her 60s tried to take the cart and then apologized. Shortly afterward, the shopper discovered that her wallet was missing.
• On February 7, a driver stopped to fuel her Nissan SUV at the Washingtonian Gas Station (2450 Wisconsin Ave.). A black Hyundai with tinted windows and temporary tags pulled up next to her, and a man got out, opened her SUV’s rear door, and stole a leather bag containing a wallet, a sweater, a Pennsylvania driver’s license, and $15 in coins. The Hyundai then fled southbound on 37th Street.
• On February 12, a man at Georgetown Plaza (2233 Wisconsin Ave.), left his wallet and iPhone in an unlocked locker before taking a class. When he returned, he noticed the items were gone. Someone later tried to use one of his credit cards to charge $250 at a Safeway in Arlington, Virginia.
• On January 12, a woman at CorePower Yoga (2233 Wisconsin Ave.) found that her silver necklace, black leather boots, and iPhone had been stolen from a community storage area while she took a yoga class.

Breadsoda (2233 Wisconsin Ave.) sold more than enough food in 2012 to comply with its liquor license, the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board has found. On June 4, the Board dismissed a case against the pub for violating the provisions of its license.

Although the restaurant took in more than the minimum gross food sales of $2,000 per seat, it did not originally report its actual sales, due to what the owners termed “a clerical error.” Says Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration spokesperson Jessie Cornelius, “The licensee submitted corrected quarterly reports showing adequate food sales. As a result, the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board and Office of Attorney General agreed that there is no violation.”

From the May 2014 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

Breadsoda (2233 Wisconsin Ave.) is facing potential discipline from the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration after an audit revealed that the bar had misreported its food and alcohol sales numbers for calendar year 2012. Although the restaurant took in more than the minimum gross food sales of $2,000 per seat, it did not report its actual sales, due to what the owners termed “a clerical error.” In an April 22 letter to the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, co-owner Bill Thomas wrote, “I accidentally overstated our liquor sales. What idiot does that?” A report by ABRA investigator Adeniyi Adejunmobi challenges this assertion, though, stating that “based on the audit performed, Breadsoda underreported food and alcoholic beverages sales.” A hearing on the matter has been tentatively scheduled for May 21.

Brown paper Chick-fil-A 5/4/2014

The former home of the Lado language school, next door to Breadsoda (2233 Wisconsin Ave.), has accumulated some perplexing signs on its papered-over storefront. Along with two copies of an electrical permit issued for a different building—2218 Wisconsin Ave., the future home of Mad Fox Brewing Company—the ex-Lado entrance bears the logo of Georgia-based fast-food chain Chick-fil-A.Chick-fil-A logo at 2233 Wisc

A Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs spokesman could locate no building permit application or DC business license for Chick-fil-A. We’ve made an inquiry with Chick-fil-A’s corporate headquarters and will update when they respond.

UPDATE: We’ve heard no response from Chick-fil-A, but a representative for the landlord, Carr Properties, tells us that the vacant space has not been leased. “We will be sure to remove anything that has been posted to the doors,” she says.
