“Launching nationwide on public television this April is a new series unlike any other: “Live At 9:30 Hosted by Squarespace” – an unpredictable, modern-day music variety show.
Off the beaten path in Washington, D.C. is one of the world’s greatest music venues — the 9:30 Club. It’s the most-attended music club of its size in the world – a 1200-person venue where world-famous artists have started their careers, refined their sounds, and played legendary shows. Now it’s home to TV’s most groundbreaking music show.
Each cinematic, one-hour episode of “Live At 9:30” will feature a collection of acts from different genres, interspersed with insightful and entertaining interviews, short films, and comedic bits. In a word: variety; variety that people will be talking about. Filmed unobtrusively with more than a dozen cameras, including hidden GoPros and an airborne cable-cam, “Live At 9:30” will be unlike any music show on TV today. (more…)
Every February, I have a big birthday party for my Cavalier King Charles spaniel, Kingsley, and invite Petworth dogs and their humans to come celebrate.
Last year I had 22 dogs in my row house! All are well-behaved, mooch at the treat table (I bake organic biscuits for them), and have a blast tearing open a piñata filled with more smelly dog biscuits.
Each year there’s a different party theme. This year it’s Star Wars, since Kingsley’s turning 7.
(I will also mention here Kingsley is a National canine agility champion — the only dog in Washington, DC with that title!)”

“After kicking off our retail operation with a Saturday morning ‘residency’ at American Ice Co. last August, we’re pleased announce that starting this weekend we’ll be coming to Union Market!
We’ll be occupying a stall near the front of the market on Saturdays & Sundays (9a-4p) through early March (and possibly longer than that). With the consistent lines we’ve been seeing at American Ice (particularly after big flavor launches like the king cake kolache, DCity Smokehouse brisket, etc.) we’re hoping these extended hours will help alleviate the crowds a bit and offer all the kolache fans a convenient option to get their fix!
Saturday will also mark the launch of our poppyseed flavor– a very traditional Czech flavor and a meaningful one for me personally (was always my favorite flavor that my grandmother would make growing up). We also have some fun new guest chef flavors coming soon, including one with Nate Anda of Red Apron (conveniently a few stalls away at the market).
See you at the market!”

“Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C. will open in September 2016 dramatically ahead of schedule. With its opening, the Nation’s Capital will now be home to an iconic and historic super-luxury hotel rivaling the best of other international capital cities.
“For decades people have looked in wonderment at the magnificence of the Old Post Office building and structure. There is nothing like it and we are so proud to have not only brought this incredible building back to life, but also to a position far greater than it ever was at its previous zenith. It was an honor to have dealt with the professionals at the General Services Administration. It was their total passion and hard work that helped bring this unrivaled project to fruition,” says Donald J. Trump.”
Ed. Note: Still waiting to hear which restaurants will be accompanying the hotel at 1100 Pennsylvania Avenue NW…
“The Mayor will announce plan to construct 30 units of transitional housing for young mothers on the corner of 10th and V NW on the lot owned by Sorg. Will use existing design and city will enter into a 30 year lease. Will announce soon. City community meeting pending.”

From the Mayor’s Office:
“Last fall, the Council of the District of Columbia voted in support of Mayor Bowser’s plan to close DC General and replace it with small, safe and dignified short-term housing facilities across the District. This morning, Mayor Bowser detailed the next stages of her plan as well as the sites for new short-term family housing facilities in all 8 wards.
“In a city as prosperous as ours, there is no reason we should keep families at DC General. The building is too big, too old and too far removed from the services that get families back on their feet,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser. “When I ran for Mayor, I heard loud and clear from our residents across our city that our city can – and must – do better. I have been working with the Council on a plan that will create small, short-term family housing. These facilities will be modern, safe and dignified – and will bring us one big step closer to our goal of ending homelessness in the District of Columbia.”
The District’s Department of General Services (DGS) conducted a months-long search to identify suitable sites for the new short-term family housing. DGS looked for spaces that could collectively serve the same number of residents at DC General, with access to services and public transportation. The locations include a mix of District-owned properties, as well as newly purchased or leased private property. They are:
2105-2107 10th Street, NW (Ward 1)
2619 Wisconsin Ave, NW (Ward 3)
5505 Fifth Street, NW (Ward 4)
2266 25th Place, NE (Ward 5)
700 Delaware Ave, SW (Ward 6)
5004 D Street, SE (Ward 7)
6th Street & Chesapeake Street, SE (Ward 8)
On Wednesday, the Mayor will cut the ribbon on a brand new women’s shelter in Ward 2, at 810 5th Street, NW. The innovative facility will accommodate up to 213 women and will replace two outdated facilities at 2nd and D streets, NW.
Each short-term family housing site will accommodate up to 50 families. Unlike DC General, these facilities will have places for children of all ages to play and do homework. They will also include the kind of services and programming that helps families exit shelter and move to permanent housing as soon as possible. In addition to providing safe and dignified short-term housing, Mayor Bowser is committing to making continued investments in the solutions that work to end homelessness—affordable housing, permanent supportive housing and rapid rehousing.
This week, the Administration will submit to the Council a package detailing the sites for their approval.
The buildings for the short-term family housing will need to be renovated or built from the ground up. The new sites will begin to open and serve families starting in 2017. The short-term housing for families will be some of the most dignified and innovative in the country. Once they are all in place, the District will close the DC General Family Shelter.”
Replacing DC General with Short-Term Family Housing
The District of Columbia has a plan to end homelessness. As part of that plan, we will close DC General – a former hospital that has served as the District’s largest family shelter for seven years. DC General is too big, too old and geographically removed from the services that individuals experiencing homelessness need to exit shelter and get back on their feet. We will replace DC General by developing several short-term family housing facilities across the city.
You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
