““Meet me at Stan’s,” has been the tradition for three generations of devoted customers who gather for happy hour, watching sporting events, celebrating special occasions or just to chill with friends after work.
Washingtonians and visitors alike come to Stan’s year after year hoping to enjoy the legendary cocktails and warm, friendly atmosphere that makes Stan’s a DC favorite. Stan’s originated in upper northwest 38 years ago with the same great food, outstanding service and awesome drinks you find today. Today’s owner, Cathy, has maintained many of the traditions that made Stan’s a DC classic and added a few new touches of her own since she took over 14 years ago.
Stan’s is open for lunch, dinner and late evenings Monday through Friday; evenings on Saturdays and Sundays during football season.”
“U.S.A.I.R.A.N obscures the perceived divide between Iranian and US identities. By reappropriating the exterior of a vacant building in D.C.’s thriving H Street corridor, artist Sanaz Mazinani creates a sculptural symbol for the transference of culture in which one’s personal politics are recontextualized and cross-examined.
The installation brings attention to the void of Washington D.C.’s official Embassy of Iran, which has stood regal yet vacant on Massachusetts Avenue NW since 1980. Mazinani wraps a quintessential mid-century American building — the site of the former Robert L. Christian Community Library — in intricate Islamic patterns. Articulating the nebulous sense of place from the perspective of an emigrant, muraled windows and walls reference the architectural details of the former Embassy. Upon close inspection, one will see that these patterns are comprised of mass media imagery, composed in both parallels and contradictions. U.S.A.I.R.A.N examines absence and placelessness, while at the same time explores the potential for harmony. It is a site from which to build mutual respect and activate cultural exchange.”
The event is free to all music lovers! But attendees are encouraged to purchased $10 VIP wristbands for a guided stroll or make a dinner reservation at one of the participating venues to secure seating for the live performance.

Parlay is the new lounge and sports bar that went into the former Malaysia Kopitiam space on M Street. When I walked by on Sunday, I was told is was only a soft opening during football games. Sadly, they are a Cowboys bar or at least they were last Sunday
If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.
“This Seymour- a corgi/collie/keeshond mix. He lives in SWDC, where he spends his days trying to fight the squirrels… often finding it hard to do so with a leash in his mouth. He is a proud alum of City Dogs Rescue in DC.”
“Pets: Max and Biggie in Capitol Hill
Ed. Note: The queue is getting a little light, now is a good time to send your pets to princeofpetworth(at)gmail thanks!
“I am a member of Phillips Collection but yesterday when I went for a quick afternoon glimpse of the excellent “Luncheon of the Boating Party” I was alerted to the fact that the gallery is free right now for everyone. This is because they are in the process of exchanging out the 3rd floor exhibit. I think entrance is usually $15ish so this is a nice perk. Thought you might like to share it out with readers!”
Ed. Note: Phillips says they’ll be free until the next exhibit (except for weekends) on Sept. 27th
