Tobacco Road goes adrift: A Miamian's lament of historic bar's corporate partnership — By Perry Stein | 10/24/2014 There's something ironic about seeing the words "cruise ship" and "historic" in the same sentence. Cruise ships connote conga lines and mass consumption. Historic? That suggests something with more staying power than a week's worth of rum and Cokes in the eastern Caribbean.

Police Arrest Woman in Hit and Run That Left Cyclist Dead Last Month — D.C. police say they have made an arrest in a hit-and-run that left a cyclist dead last month. On Sept. 20, 53-year-old Tonya Reaves was hit by a SUV while riding her bicycle in Shaw around 2:30 a.m. on the intersection of 8th and S streets NW.

Formal Apology Could End Our Long Municipal Upside-Down Flag Nightmare — The cover-up was worse than the initial blunder, and now the D.C. Board of Elections wants the District's voters to know that it's very, very sorry-for everything. Last week, the board sent out a voter guide printed with -whoops-an upside-down version of the D.C. flag.

You Can Order a Flu Shot from Uber Today — There's Uber for ice cream, Uber for your convenience store necessities, and now-even though you likely never asked for this-there's Uber for your medical procedures. Uber announced the creation of UberHEALTH-a service in which Uber will deliver a real-live nurse to your door to administer a flu shot.

A Confusing Street in 16th Street Heights Could Soon Make More Sense — A busy one-mile stretch of Arkansas Avenue NW in 16th Street Heights is about to get smaller-and that's just what the neighborhood wants. Local residents have long said Arkansas Avenue between Georgia Avenue NW and 16th Street NW is hazardous, and they've called on the District Department of Transportation to make some modifications, specifically to permanently slim the street down to two lanes-one in each direction.

D.C. Struggles to Keep Its Pants Up On Metro — More men have apparently felt the need to drop their pants and expose themselves on the Metrorail system in recent months. Metro Transit Police said today that in the past two months they have seen an increase in indecent exposure incidents and are currently searching for four men involved in unrelated incidents on the Metrorail system.

New Law Could Ban Sidewalk Biking Beyond Downtown D.C. — The debate over the etiquette of biking on a sidewalk could soon be resolved on some city streets if a newly introduced law makes it past the D.C. Council. Ward 1 Councilmember Jim Graham introduced legislation today that would make biking on a sidewalk illegal when there is a bike lane running in the same direction available.

Judge Denies District’s Request to Reconsider Handgun Ruling — A judge's order to overturn the District's total ban on carrying guns place will stay in place for now. U.S. District Senior Judge Frederick Sullin Jr. denied today the District's request for the court to reconsider his July ruling declaring the city's concealed carry ban unconstitutional, the Legal Times reported.

Police: Georgetown Rabbi’s Voyeurism Not Limited to Ritual Shower Area — New court documents reveal that the scope of the investigation into the Georgetown rabbi extends far beyond the six misdemeanor counts of voyeurism the rabbi was charged and pleaded not guilty to on Wednesday.

D.C. Health Dept. Launches Ebola Preparedness Web Page — The head of the District's Department of Health says the city is taking all precautions to make sure it's prepared for any possible Ebola case.
