Allen is scheduled to hold his next office hours for the community at Compass Coffee (1535 7th St. NW) from 8 to 9:30 a.m. on Friday.

“Whether it’s policy or potholes, schools or public safety, small business or the Metro, Community Office Hours are a great chance to talk with Councilmember Allen about what’s on your mind,” reads an email sent to the Shaw listserv yesterday.

Lucky residents in Shaw, Dupont Circle and elsewhere will be able to drink nitro coffee for free next week thanks to local food delivery startup Galley.

The delivery service will give away thousands of 12-ounce bottles of Compass Coffee‘s nitro cold brew to residents in Chinatown, Penn Quarter, Shaw, Mount Vernon, NoMa, Dupont Circle, Foggy Bottom and Georgetown on Tuesday starting at 1 p.m.

To enter to win a free bottle, participants must request a free coffee delivery through Galley’s iPhone app. The more requests received from a specific address, the more likely it is that participants will win free coffee.

Galley will also sell Compass nitro coffee as an add-on to any lunch order.
