From an email:

“‘Twas the weeks before Christmas, when all through Bloomingdale
Many patrons were drinking the Pub’s wine, cider and ale…
When out on the patio there arose a holiday tent!
People sprang from their homes to take part in the merriment.
A tent with heaters, cuddle blankets, garlands, hot drinks, mistletoe and lights had come up like a flash,
The perfect place to make merry with your friends or throw a holiday bash…
From the people of the Pub to all DCites—

“Happy Christmukkah to all, and to all a good night!”

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.

“F. Stick of Petworth celebrating his 7th birthday. His longevity was the subject of much interest in his Animal Fix debut. For those who wondered: yes, he’s 7 in human years! He owes his good health to his roomy 55 gallon tank and advises that goldfish should never live in bowls!”

From the National Park Service:

“Providing the space required for the Presidential inauguration, while also accommodating the free speech rights of protesters and supporters, is a longstanding responsibility for the National Park Service. The National Park Service continues to work with the Gathering for Justice (also commonly referred to as the Women’s March on Washington) and has identified locations where the group can hold its event on January 21. The National Park Service has not denied their permit to use the Lincoln Memorial and will continue to work with all of those who have permit requests pending for that space on January 21. (more…)

WTF Now?!: A Series with Todd Kliman

“Mon, December 12, 2016

So many of us are hungering to understand what happens now in the wake of Trump’s election — what does it mean and how are our lives going to change?

It was out of this confusion and fear that WTF Now? was born.

Over a period of weeks, moderator Todd Kliman and a wide array of distinguished thinkers will try to contextualize the Trump phenomenon in American and world history, and to examine the social, cultural, economic, philosophical, political, ethical, moral, and linguistic ramifications and implications of a Trump presidency.

The conversation will take place in a performance space called Third Floor, in DC’s Petworth neighborhood, and will feature three or four panelists each week in a format that mixes the town halls of today with the salons of yore. The talk will be loose, lively, exploratory.

The first WTF Now will take place on December 12th at 7 p.m, with: (more…)

“The construction on Columbia Road in Adams Morgan has been starting at about 6:30am each morning–jack hammering, bulldozering, etc. Adams Morgan clearly has strict noise regulations since the new hotel will not be allowed to have a public rooftop, but what are the effects of the regulations on early morning construction noise? Are there DC regulations about what time noisy construction can begin?”
