Thanks to a reader for passing on:


if all goes as planned, we will be reopening next weekend.

the new address of the shop is 1628 U ST NW.

it is located just around the corner from the old shop, about a six minute walk across U or Willard.

we are very excited to enter this next phase of the shop.
the new store will be the same, but also very, very different.

it’s sad to see this place go after being down there for almost nine years, but we have a good feeling at about this… thanks again for all your love/support, we’ll see you soon!”

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.

“Dear PoPville,

There is an ongoing noise violation behind the South Side of Quebec Place near the Raymond Rec Center. My neighbors and I have been working for months to try to get the District to address the 73 decibel cooling unit that intermittently spews noise into our homes and onto our back alley. Representatives from DGS at last said that they are working to resolve the problem, but communication has been poor and we have been asking for Councilman Todd’s office to help since early July. Has anyone had success getting Mr. Todd’s office to lead on problems like this? If so, what did it take?”

Man Breaking into Church ST Condo Building

“Be on the lookout for this guy in the Logan Circle neighborhood. Here are a couple of links that include still images and video footage of a guy breaking into my Church ST condo building on two separate occasions. On July 13th, the perpetrator piggy-backed into our building after a guest was buzzed in and stole a couple of bikes. On August 11th, the same guy broke the magnetic lock on the front door and stole some electronics from two cars parked in the garage.

He managed to get in and out of the building and steal stuff on both occasions in fewer than 20 minutes. Owners and our front desk person notified the police”

Photos from July 13th break in (around 10:30pm)

Photos from August 11th break-in (around 12:30am)
