Ed. Note: I swear that was my first beer. If you have any questions you’d like me to answer about anything please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘What’d I Miss’ in the subject line. You can ask really anything you’d like – from specific to philosophical. But no grammar questions. You can also tweet questions to @PoPville though I prefer email if possible. I’m gonna try to keep this around 10 minutes. What’d I Miss is done on one take with no editing so please don’t be too mean to me!

From a press release:

“The National Symphony Orchestra will blanket the neighborhoods of Brookland and NoMa home January 5–January 12, building deeper connections to its community by giving more than 50 free events and performances. From concerts at Echostage and Catholic University of America’s Hartke Theatre to in-school visits, concerts for toddlers, and performances at homeless shelters, NSO members will make music in ensembles large and small. The Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, Echostage, McKinley Technology Education Campus, Dance Place, Union Market’s Dock 5, NPR: these are but a few of the distinctive and colorful locales to be visited, culminating in the concert at Hartke Theatre.

Four events anchor the array of performances, including three by the full orchestra. For these key events free reservations are required, but 15 minutes before performances, unclaimed reservations will be opened up to those waiting in line. NSO In Your Neighborhood Event Reservations.

January 7: Historic Union Market is not only home to more than 30 of the top artisanal food producers in the region, above the marketplace it boasts the distinctive event space Dock 5. There Glenn Donnellan (creator of “The Electric Slugger”—an electric violin made from a Louisville Slugger baseball bat) and NSO colleagues will bring their mix of rock ‘n’ roll, blues/jazz, fiddling, and maybe even classical, to this spacious urban venue. An arrival time of 6 p.m. is suggested; the performance begins at 7 p.m. (more…)

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 6-8 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.

“Dear PoPville,

I’m trying to get a parking permit for moving (the “emergency no parking” signs) and the area that’s sectioned off for commercial vehicles (i.e., moving trucks).

When I try to use the online system, it wants me to indicate the number of the meter, but I can’t find it anywhere on the meter itself. When I call DDOT, they refer me back to the website. What am I missing?

I thought I’d throw it out to you and the PoPville community as surely others have encountered this.”
