Over the years I’ve had tons of emails asking/applauding about the crosswalk at 14th and S St, NW. If memory serves (maybe textdoc can find it in the archives) this was an experimental crosswalk by DDOT that never got implemented any other streets. Folks def. love it though. So I was sad to see half of it had already been paved over. Enjoy the other half while it lasts!
Thanks to @robintngo for tweeting us an updated photo of the inside of Bread & Salt:
And next door Dancing Crab has posted a liquor license placard amendment that says:

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.
“Pancho from Columbia Heights, clearly not enjoying his spa day!”
“Traubert (named for a Tom Waits song) says goodbye to his DC home in Takoma for a sojourn in Memphis.”
This rental is located at 809 813 6th Street, Northwest. The listing says:
“Turn key boutique condo for lease comes partially furnished. Condo is located one block to Gallery Place metro, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Condo features hardwood floors, 10 ft ceilings, subway tile bathrooms, stainless steel appliances and washer dryer.”
Or as my neighborhood is dubbing it “Nightmare on Buchanan St”.
On the 1400 block of Buchanan St NW they completely razed a beautiful Wardman rowhome without the proper permissions, causing structural failure to the adjoining homes. DCRA is asking the neighbors, whose houses were damaged, to pay for new firewalls and re-enforcement. This blatant disregard to the neighborhood (and the permitting process) is frightening. If you see what’s been done, it’s absolutely awful. I’ve never seen anything like it in any neighborhood in DC. The one of the house you can see white because there is absolutely nothing but daylight behind the brick. There is nothing in place to even keep the façade standing. It’s a miracle the façade hasn’t crumbled.”
