Willie's Brew & Que
300 Tingey St, SE

Last week ANC Rep David Garber tweeted that the long awaited Willie’s Brew & Que was finally hiring. Now, these photos were posted to Willie’s facebook page. If the BBQ is any good this could be another a great addition to Navy Yard. They are located at the opposite end of Bluejacket brewery in the Boilermaker building. Stay tuned for an opening date.

“Dear PoPville,

Another contender for ugliest popup — this one in the heart of Petworth at 456 Randolph St NW. Maybe you’ve seen it already, but I just had to say something bc it’s a real shame what they’ve done to it.

This house was an ugly eyesore for a long time but has (had?) great potential, so I’m glad someone is flipping it, and in general I have nothing against popups. But, they completely obliterated the nice brick curves and arches on the roofline that echoed the neighbors. How it’s a brown ugly boring box with the world’s least inspired pop up inside.

The even more annoying thing is that Landmark Construction Development shows a design on their website that included at least a watered down version of the arch, albeit with what looks like a shipping container behind it.

Strangely, after this house was sold, they gutted it completely, literally down to the brick outer walls and mud floor leaving a cathedral of empty space inside, and then left it for months before starting to rebuild. Very unusual for the neighborhood.

I note that the mirrored house at 445 Quincy St NW also had the same great roof design, and sold for $830k in January after a terrific flip job that preserved the design.

Does anyone review these things before they’re allowed to move forward?”

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.

How long is too long to leave a dog alone?

“We have a tenant who regularly leaves her dog alone for very long stretches- regularly 12-16 hours but a few 24+ hour times. I love animals and do not have a dog myself because I know I am not home enough to give a dog the care it needs. I feel awful knowing there is a dog next door who is alone that much. I am trying to to determine if I am being overly concerned/nosy or if this is something that needs intervention. I read the DC regs on animal neglect and there are no clear definition around leaving an animal unattended. But it seems if he has access to food and water and is inside out of the elements, it’s not technically neglect. I have offered several times to let him out or bring him to my place when she is not home, but she has never accepted. So then I am just the nosy landlord, or is there something more I should/could be doing?”
