DenizensBeerTakeover Jpeg

From a press release:

“Four stores in the Tryst restaurant group are proud to announce they will be teaming up with local Denizens Brewing Co for a Tap Takeover from March 4th – 10th, 2015. Tryst, The Diner, Open City, and The Coupe are excited to offer their communities the opportunity to try an assortment of these local beers on tap, as well as beer flights, assorted beer cocktails and unique food pairings.

Denizens Brewing Co is a microbrewery located right on the DC/MD line, just about 5 miles from the Tryst group’s stores. Denizens believes that everyone has a right to fresh, local craft beer and the Tryst group is making that more possible than ever with this tap takeover—bringing Denizens beers to three neighborhoods of DC—Adams Morgan, Woodley Park, and Columbia Heights.”

On Friday I mentioned that I’ve joined Boundary Stone’s St. Baldrick’s Team – and to please consider donating $5 or $10 to fight childhood cancer. Thank you to all who have donated!

I realize I still have a long long ways to go towards reaching my fundraising goal so let me sweeten the deal for ya! Anyone who donates $20 or more will get a free special edition PoPville t-shirt (pictured above, real sign from 14th Street). We’re on the honor system here – so just come to the event March 15th at Boundary Stone (or a future PoPville happy hour) and I’ll get you a shirt. But I beg you again, this is a really good cause – so if you are able to donate anything even 5 bucks I’d be super grateful. And if you are fortunate enough to be able to donate more (or just want a t-shirt that’s cool too) please make your donation here. With all sincerity – thank you very much for considering. And come to the party at Boundary Stone on March 15th when we’ll all get our heads shaved.

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.
