  • I feel like I want to build a stature to Paul Ruppert on Upshur. That guy has brought so much to Petworth. Once he transforms, the (eye sore) Murrel Building, he will have near god-like status in my eyes! Thank You! Hope this transformation continues along Georgia Ave too.

  • Is Petworth Citizen a bar? Can I bring my child to the bookstore event?

    • I was there Sat night with my 3 month old, and saw 3 other babies and two toddlers. Go for it!

    • It is a bar, but they also have tables where families with kids often come in the early evening. They keep plastic cups with kid-friendly design and lids in stock, which I take as a sign that kids are welcome.

      Note also that this event will be in the “reading room” portion of the bar, which is a separate space in the back. I’m bringing my kids (assuming we’re able to get out of the house, which is never a given).

      • There are also a few shelves of kids books in the reading room too!

        In all seriousness- the Rupperts are the best. All of them. Molly, Cappy, Christina, Paul…they do a tremendous amount for the city and the arts in DC.

  • Petworth Citizen is a bar but parents bring in their kids all the time. They have high chairs, booster seats and children’s books in the reading room. On Friday early evenings, there is a lot of families and kids in having dinner.

  • Is this business putting any of its own money into this venture? Doesn’t seem very viable if they already are using a kickstarter and fundraiser. Maybe it should go the non-profit route?

    • give him a shout and talk with him.

    • Why buy the milk when local residents will give you the cow for free?

      • They’re fundraising on Kickstarter- not Indie go-go. I snuck a peak into the soon to be bookstore and there’s a lot of build-out that needs to happen. If you look at Kickstarter, it’s all small businesses or artists funding projects. I don’t understand why you have your knickers in a twist about it.
