From a press release:

“Robb Duncan, Washington’s premier gelato artisan and co-owner of Dolcezza, is pleased to unveil his newest location which will open April 17, 2015 at 904 Palmer Alley, NW, 20001 at CityCenterDC. Dolcezza CityCenterDC will debut a new way to enjoy coffee made by harnessing high-pressure nitrogen to create a smooth, creamy iced coffee. Dolcezza’s nitro coffee is unmatched in the DC region and is unique because of the way it infuses nitrogen using a special patented-membrane at the point-of-sale using Dolcezza’s own custom recipes and Stumptown’s seasonal, single origin beans. The system used to make this new offering was created by AC Beverage Inc. — pioneers of the draft beer and beverage industry — using their expertise of draft beer technologies and adapting it to coffee. Priced at $5.50 per cup, Dolcezza’s nitrogen coffee program will offer fans their favorite cup of coffee with added flavor, elevated caffeine, and a smoother taste. Additional benefits include:

• Dolcezza’s nitro coffee will always taste fresh because it is only in contact with nitrogen at the point of sale. So there’s less time for the nitrogen to denature the coffee concentrate.

• Dolcezza has the creative freedom to experiment with an unlimited number of coffee recipes.

• Dolcezza’s process will give the coffee a smoother texture and showcase the natural sweetness of their recipes.

• Dolcezza will be able to adjust parameters to deliver varying nitro coffee experiences, from spicy and dark brews similar to a Double IPA to lighter and more floral blends reminiscent of a Belgian Ale.

Dolcezza will also be showcasing their close partnership with Stumptown by being the first in the DC region to sell and stock Stumptown cold brew coffee + milk.

The 1,200-square-foot space boosts a 10-foot-long communal table that can accommodate ten guests, as well as a standing bar for ten that runs along 9th Street. The space also incorporates a private alcove near the entrance that can accommodate up to four guests seated. The tables and light fixtures throughout the space were created by Housewerks, a salvage industrial outfitter out of Baltimore, Maryland. Also of note is the coffee bar and espresso station, which is a custom state-of-the-art setup conceived, designed, and built by the coffee wizard of Baltimore, Bruce White of Perfect Brew.”

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 6-8 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.

From WMATA:

“Reconstruction of the Metrorail system will continue over the weekend of April 17-19 with schedule adjustments on two of six rail lines.

This weekend, Orange, Silver, Blue and Yellow line trains will operate at regular intervals. On Saturday, Greenbelt Station will be closed; however, Green Line trains will operate at regular intervals between College Park and Branch Avenue stations. Green Line trains will operate at regular intervals on Sunday. Red Line trains will operate every 15 minutes with additional trains between Grosvenor and Silver Spring during daytime hours.”

and

“Tomorrow (Saturday, April 18), a major concert will be held on the National Mall that could draw a large number of attendees.

Due to the potential for crowding, Metro is encouraging concertgoers to use stations other than Smithsonian. Suggested Metrorail stations near the National Mall include:
• L’Enfant Plaza
• Metro Center
• Federal Triangle
• Archives
• Federal Center SW

Metro is advising customers that selected trains may bypass Smithsonian station if the station becomes crowded.”

“Dear PoPville,

I am hoping for some help from the PoPville community on where in the DC area to get a customized engagement ring. I am admittedly new to the process and have no clue how it works. I know there was a PoPville post on engagement rings back in 2011, but that was geared towards vintage rings, which isn’t quite what I’m looking for.

Any help would be great!”
