From a website of Chipotle (2338 Wisconsin Ave.):

This Halloween, come into any Chipotle dressed in costume from 4 pm to close, and you’ll score a burrito, bowl, salad, or an order of tacos for just $3. All proceeds up to $1,000,000 will benefit the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to creating a more sustainable and healthful food supply.

Town Hall (2340 Wisconsin Ave.) invites dogs (and their owners) to enjoy dinner and/or drinks alfresco in the restaurant’s rear courtyard on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights, says managing partner Paul Holder. The patio space is accessible via the pedestrian alley between Town Hall and Chipotle (2338 Wisconsin Ave.).

Tuesday night is still half-price wine night at Town Hall, Holder adds.

At 7:13 a.m. today, the Metropolitan Police Department received a report of a sexual assault in the parking lot behind Bruegger’s Bagels (2338 Wisconsin Ave.), a spokesman says. The parking lot is currently closed while police investigate.

UPDATE: A member of the Glover Park Yahoo newsgroup reports that she was in the parking lot around 7 a.m. and saw police find “two drunken girls laying on the grass who could not stand up.”

UPDATE 2: As of Thursday, July 12, this incident was still under investigation. According to MPD Captain Jeffrey Herold, “an unconscious female” whose “clothing was disheveled” was discovered in the Bruegger’s parking lot on the morning of July 7. The woman couldn’t remember what had happened to her, and no witnesses were identified, but police believe a sexual assault “could have been committed,” Herold says. The woman lives in Maryland, he adds.

From the June 2010 edition of the Glover Park Gazette:

UPDATE: According to Chipotle spokesperson Chris Arnold, “that restaurant is slated to open in the first quarter of 2011.”

“Moe” better news

From the January 2010 Glover Park Gazette:

A Department of Public Works graffiti-removal squad descended on the commercial strip in mid-November to clear away the large-scale scrawlings of some taggers who had hit the neighborhood one night in late October. The words “Moe,” “Nore,” “Ball$,” and “ATB” were scrubbed from the CVS at 2226 Wisconsin and the old Pizza Hut at 2338 Wisconsin, among other buildings.

The cleanup crew left behind many smaller, scattered tags inflicted by Moe and his pals that same, crazy night, but Petar Dimtchev, the Mayor’s liaison for community relations and services in Ward 3, said he would provide graffiti-removal kits to affected property owners.
Dimtchev invited citizens with graffiti or blight concerns to call the Ward 3 Help Desk at 202-671-2337 or to contact him at petar.dimtchev@dc.gov or Drew Del Junco, outreach and service specialist for Ward 3, at andrew.deljunco@dc.gov.

From the December 2009 Glover Park Gazette:

We’ve been tagged. In late October, some graffiti-doers scrawled “MOE,” “NORE,” “BALL$,” and “ATB” on several buildings on the strip, including CVS at 2226 Wisconsin, the ex-Pizza Hut at 2338 Wisconsin, Glover Park Market at 2411 37th Street, and, cruelly, Rocklands’s “Eat Your Barbeque” mural at 2424 37th Street.

The graffiti does not appear to be gang-related, according to Daniel Hickson, the director of the Metropolitan Police Department’s Intelligence Branch. Rather, it seems to be the work of—or an homage to—a group of prolific taggers called the ATB Crew. Nore was described a “king” of DC graffiti in Clout magazine, and Moe “bombs hard” (i.e., tags a lot) according to an online graffiti discussion board. We couldn’t find any information online about Ball$, but given his nom de crime, he must be very wealthy and courageous indeed.

A citizen reported the graffiti at CVS and Starbucks to the city for removal on November 1, but it had not yet been removed three weeks later—perhaps because the government needs waivers from property owners before taking action. (UPDATE: A DPW team did remove major graffiti from the CVS garage door, the ex Pizza Hut, and other sites on November 16, though smaller tags remained.)

Property owners who want graffiti removed should call 311 directly. [Do-it-yourselfers can try acetone or nail polish remover, though that may also remove any underlying finish.]

FYI, there's a city-owned cut-through at 37th and Tunlaw, but it's blocked off.From the November 2009 Glover Park Gazette:

The Northeast Passage is back, and it smells like pumpernickel. Ever since Glover Park’s two-sided Blockbuster store closed in 2007, thus shutting off a convenient shortcut to the commercial strip, shoppers from 37th Street and beyond have been forced to walk south to W Place or north to Pearson’s and then double back on Wisconsin Avenue—a detour that can add 1/3 of a mile to a round trip.

Now managers at the Bruegger’s Bagels at 2334 Wisconsin, which took over part of the old Blockbuster space, have confirmed that the much-missed shortcut is open again. Staffers don’t object to thru traffic, one manager joked to us, “as long as you say ‘hi’ as you go past.”
