‘Goods, Not Guns’
— Two Mt. Pleasant residents have started a campaign to encourage local businesses to post signs prohibiting patrons from entering with a hand-gun. The effort is a response to recent court actions that have loosened D.C.’s gun laws. [WAMU]

24-hour diner — Construction on a new 24-hour restaurant called “Olivia’s Diner” is underway at 1120 19th Street NW. The diner advertises fresh-from-scratch food with the philosophy “people come first.” [Borderstan]

Worthy Ambition — Signs for the LeDroit Park-Bloomingdale Heritage Trail are being installed in the neighborhoods. This heritage trail is titled Worthy Ambition, a line from a Paul Laurence Dunbar poem about black achievement in spite of slavery. [Left for Ledroit]

Lyman’s marks 1-year anniversary — The tavern on 14th and Quincy NW celebrated with free pinball and drink specials. [New Columbia Heights]

Park View Transportation Planning — Tonight’s meeting of the Park View United Neighborhood Coalition will focus on issues related to sidewalks, street configuration, bike lanes, trees, and traffic. The meeting  will be held at Park View Recreation Center and begins at 7 pm. [Park View DC]
