“My garden [Mt. Pleasant] is finally producing produce – peppers, edamame, lots of cucumbers, the last of the peas. And tomatoes! And bonus volunteer sunflowers. The Brandywine tomato deserved a photo of its own.”
If you have a great haul, beautiful tomato or something like that, send an email and a couple photos to princeofpetworth(at)gmail with your neighborhood and garden haul in the subject line and I’ll pick a few winners a week (free PoPville t-shirt or tote bag.)
I saw these guys just over the bridge from Woodley Park towards Dupont. I’d never seen flowers like this before – anyone know what kind it is?

From an email:
“On Saturday, July 26th, 2014, DJ Dredd will present a 30th Anniversary celebration of Prince’s seminal film and soundtrack, “Purple Rain” at the historic Black Cat nightclub in Washington, DC.
The celebration, which takes place at the Black Cat nightclub, will feature a screening of “Purple Rain” at 9pm, followed immediately by a Prince themed dance party–featuring a marathon set of music, remixes, and videos. The event will also feature giveaways, signature themed drinks and a costume contest. The Black Cat nightclub is located at 1811 14th Street, Northwest. Advance tickets are available from Ticketfly.
DJ Dredd has held residencies and created some of DCs most celebrated parties and his sets are constantly discussed as some of the best in the city. His genre-bending style of mixing and his uncanny ability to turn any venue into the best party in town has become his trademark—attracting a following just as diverse and extensive as his record collection.”

Park View Patio opened in the former Blue Banana space back in Oct. 2013. This can’t bode well:
Thought I could send along some progress pics from the storage container apartments going up on 7th street in Brookland/Edgewood. As you can tell these will be in my backyard basically. My roommate and I are less than pleased at this going up in such a residential area and are confused as to why the neighbors didn’t put up more of a fight? We just moved here in April so we had no idea this was happening. I’m interested to see how/if they plan to make this stick out less on this beautiful street. It’s four levels high. Couldn’t get one from the front because they have the street blocked off for construction today.
I’m all for more affordable housing, but I’m pretty “not in my backyard” about this lol.”

Updates as construction progresses. Here’s a report from NBC Washington:
“on Seventh Street, 18 six-ton shipping containers are being stacked to make 24 one-bedroom apartments mostly for student housing.”
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 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. 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.
