PeePville Montage

“Behold: Welcome to PeePville
By Sam and Shelley

We’re not gonna lie, we are shamelessly pandering to people like us — those who read PoPville obsessively on a daily basis.

We worked on this a couple nights a week for the last few weeks, channeling both our fearless Editor’s voice and the frequently peep-ular articles featured on the blog. It was a ton of fun.

If you pay special attention, you’ll see that some of Peepville’s regulars have aired their opinions here too.”

PeePville Whole Diorama

All entries should be emailed to [email protected] with ‘The PoP Peep Project’ in the subject line. Please include a brief description about your entry and please include 2 photos, one closeup and one capturing the whole scene. Entries should be based on local topics of interest if possible and sent by Friday, April 28th. Depending on how many I receive, I’ll try to post all as I get them. I will then pick 5-10 finalists that you guys will vote on. I will take the winners out to dinner (courtesy Carmine’s Family Style Italian Restaurant) and drinks (unless the high school kids win, then just dinner.) I will also bury the winners (and 2nd and 3rd place) in PoPville t-shirts. Good luck!!

Closeups after the jump. (more…)

From Kit and Ace’s coming soon sign campaign in Shaw

Looks like you’ll have to find your technical cashmere attire elsewhere. Washingtonian reports:

“Kit and Ace, the luxury-basics fashion brand founded by the family of Lululemon’s founder, announced today that all three of its Washington-area locations closed Wednesday at 12:30 PM. The company is reportedly closing all of its US locations, including showrooms on both M Street and 8th Street in DC, as well as its Bethesda Row storefront.”

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.
