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 an email:

“Just in time for the holidays Rock&Roll Hotel is hosting a Pop-Up Cat Cafe to bring kitty cuteness, craft cocktails and cat lovers together for a fun evening to raise money for the Washington Humane Society.

The Pop-Up will occupy the 2nd floor utilizing the different rooms for cat reading, snuggling, educating and friendly mingling. The two VIP rooms will be the official cat quarters where the cats are the new VIPs with cat condos, toys and treats. Here guests will be able play with, cuddle, and enjoy some intimate time with free roaming adoptable cats brought in from from Kitty City at WHS’s New York Avenue adoption center.

The Piano Lounge at the Hotel will be converted into a cat reading room and will allow an opportunity to preview the carefully selected cat literature that will be for sale during the event. (Think: amazing holiday gifts..for a great cause!)

As a very special bonus the Pop-Up will be raffling off 2 TICKETS for the Winter Classic NHL game at Nationals Park on January 1st.

All merchandise and raffle profits will go directly to the WHS.

The WHS will be on site to talk to guests and help answer questions about options for adoptions and fostering of cats and kittens.”

There will be no cover charge for the event.”
