From a press release:

“For its second monthly benefit event “A Good Reason to Drink,” Bar Dupont will raise funds for Food & Friends, a D.C. based non-profit on a mission to provide medically-specialized meals and nutrition counseling to people living with life-challenging illnesses.

On Wednesday, July 27, beginning at 11:00 a.m. the neighborhood restaurant in Dupont Circle will donate 15% of its proceeds from the day’s sales to support Food & Friends. In addition, a special extended happy hour will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. that day, featuring live music from DJ Cuzzin B, food and drink specials, and a chance to learn more about Food & Friends’ work in the community.

Happy Hour specials at Bar Dupont include $5 drafts, select wines for $6 per glass, and $7 specialty cocktails including cool and fizzy Moscow Mules and refreshing Deconstructed Grapefruits with Lemongrass Vodka, St. Germain, and San Pelligrino Limonata. Happy Hour food specials are $5 and include savory, herbal Lamb Meatballs, spicy grilled Shishito Peppers, crisp roasted Brussels Sprouts and the bar’s famous Dupont Fries.”

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 2 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.

“Dear PoPville,

I ride my bike from my apartment to the Woodley Park metro pretty regularly. I lock it up and then take the metro to work. For the past month, my bike has either been damaged there or somehow abused. Here is a listing.

-Someone tried to steal my bike, couldn’t do it, so they undid my chain and then broke my bike bell.

-They tried to steal my bike again, couldn’t do it, so they stole my bike pedals (for some reason).

-My helmet was stolen.

-A LED light was stolen.

I know locking your bike anywhere in the city is “at your own risk” but I feel that that particular area is being targeted. Everyone who locks a bike up there should do so with extreme caution and never leave anything on it that you care about.”

“Anyone have any good recommendations for contractors to build/rebuild/repair a deck (the ground level, not roof kind). Would appreciate it!

Our deck is about 16×8 with a set of stairs and so far we’ve heard estimates from $1800 to repair to $7500 to replace.”

“Dear PoPville,

It comes with great sadness that our outdoor cat and everyone’s best friend in mt.p has been killed by a hit and run speeding vehicle at 1656 irving st. No tags were able to be witnessed. It happened around 745 am 8am…my wife jennifer and I recieved a call from our next door nieghbor…I went outside to the scene and asked my wife not to come out.

He was a foot into the bike lane on irving when he was deliberately struck. It has been very hard for ourselves as well as the nieghbors. Hobart st. Threw him a huge block party 1year ago and the children had a banner competition for the hobart st. Block party. “We love guillermo!!!” Was the banner..

We loved him…..and his sister marmalade is still waiting for him to come home.”
