“We had an awesome trip to Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory of Australia. Kakadu is a really special place – UNESCO Heritage listed for both its cultural and natural offerings. It’s an amazing mix of wetlands, rivers, dry scrub, open canopy forest, and escarpment. We saw an array of wildlife ranging from birds, bats, snakes, spiders, fish, crocodiles and wallabies. Kakadu is also home to many important and sacred spaces to the indigenous population. We included a few photos of some of the rock art, but chose not to take photos of rock art telling Dreamtime stories.
PoP t-shirts travelled to the top of Gunlom Falls to swim in the pools, climbed to Nawurlandja Lookout to gaze at Burrunggui/Anbangbang and the Arnhem Land escarpment at sunset, and trekked to Nanguluwurr art site to see drawings dating back more than 20,000 years. There are things we couldn’t photograph, like being out on the wetlands with a guide at night, and the stars so bright we could see them in the water and they lighted the way.”

DBGB Kitchen and Bar is Chef Daniel Boulud’s downtown place where the French brasserie meets the American tavern. Guests enjoy 12 varieties of house-made sausage, mouthwatering burgers and towering shellfish platters, in addition to seasonal Lyonnais-inspired bistro cooking. For beer lovers, there are over 20 drafts to choose from and another 75 by-the bottle, plus a full wine list. At dessert, dig into the classics: baked Alaska, soufflés and ice cream sundaes. Interiors take their cue from the Bowery’s history as New York’s industrial restaurant supply neighborhood with floor to ceiling shelves stocked with the restaurant’s own tools, tableware and dry goods overlook a partially open kitchen. The sidewalk café, open seasonally, is the perfect spot to enjoy weekend brunch, weekday lunch or dinner in warm weather. The private room tucked away through the kitchen accommodates parties for up to 18 people with a view of all the live action at the stove.
Thanks to a couple of readers for sending word of this relic revealed on 14th Street in Logan Circle. For those not familiar Kozmo was:
a venture-capital-driven online company that promised free one-hour delivery of “videos, games, dvds, music, mags, books, food, basics & more” and Starbucks coffee in several major cities in the United States. It was founded by young investment bankers Joseph Park and Yong Kang in March 1998 in New York City, and was out of business by April 2001.
If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please shoot me 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.

My landlord is harassing me with angry, threatening emails and I am concerned he may try to forcibly remove me from my house. I recently asked my landlord to remove trash and belongings in the basement of my house. I did this as last week a torrential rain caused a flood in the basement and soaked these items. It now smells quite awful and I’m worried about mold.
My landlord adamantly refused until I suggested I would contact a housing inspector. He claims he has no responsibility, but the trash and belongings never belonged to me or my other housemates. The items were already there when we started our lease, and some of the items belong to the landlord, and the rest ostensibly belongs to former tenants. In other words, all these soggy, moldy items were there when I arrived. I also notified the landlord before and after signing the lease that these former tenant objects were still in the house. Another housemate also emailed the landlord that the items constitute a pest risk after a pest inspector said they could harbor pests.
The landlord has now agreed to pay for removal, but he continues to harass me and threatens that he will ‘fully resolve’ this situation later. I have tried to contact the DC Office of Tenant Rights, but they haven’t responded to my emails and voice messages. I have also tried to get a housing inspector out to visit the house, but every time I call I am put on hold far longer than I can reasonably wait (as I write I’m on hold going on 55 mins).
Package theft affects a lot of people in DC. You probably know someone who has had a package stolen. So why doesn’t MPD do anything about it? Would it really be that difficult to set up a sting operation in a few neighborhoods in the city? Has anyone hear an explanation as to why MPD hasn’t done this? Is there any other way to deter people from stealing packages? Has anyone ever heard of anyone in DC being arrested for package theft?

Situated on the grounds of Walter Reed Ft. Detrick, the National Museum of Health and Medicine is a strange jumble of anatomical oddities and battlefield medicine. The small, free museum houses slides of Einstein’s brain, the bullet that killed Lincoln, a surgically removed hairball, skeletons of all types, an elephantiasis sufferer’s leg, and more Civil War era bone cutting saws than you can shake a stump at. In addition to loads and loads of the macabre, right now they have an exhibit on traumatic brain injuries which covers both war related and civilian injuries, including the controversy of concussions in professional sports.
NMHM only takes an hour or two to explore, but the ability to say “you’ll never believe what I saw this weekend” is worth it alone. The museum is suitable for hardy kids and adults alike, but be warned that there is a large viewing window tucked in the back where staff carry out their work on weekdays. All of their work. The museum also has virtual exhibits that’ll give you conversational fodder without even hauling your keister to Forest Glen.
