From the NoMa BID:

“For its fourth year the NoMa pumpkin patch will return to NoMa Junction @ Storey Park on October 26, 2016 from 5pm – 8pm. PumpkinPalooza is the perfect free fall event for everyone. Guests will have the opportunity to carve or paint a free pumpkin, savor treats from local food trucks, enjoy live bluegrass music, and meet new furry friends at the NoMa petting zoo.  This year the Lemon Bowl DC will be joining in on the fun and teaching fall terrarium making classes, Urban Stems will be sharing fall floral arrangement tips and Green Heart Juice Co. will be sampling and selling their fresh juices. Pumpkins, carving utensils, live music, petting zoo, face-painting, moonbounce, and the pet costume contest are all free. Food, beverages and the terrarium making class are available for purchase.

Live music will be provided by bluegrass band Kingstreet Bluegrass.

Food trucks Swizzler, Peruvian Brothers, Dangerously Delicious, Roaming Rooster and Tamales Pachuca will be on site all evening.

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,

So this monstrosity has been in progress for 2 years in the alley behind my house on Richardson place, NW. Pre-fab hauled in on cranes and plopped down in one day. I’m annoyed because it’s taken two years to get off the ground and all the associated inconveniences of having portions of the alley blocked off but my neighbors are sort of worried what kind of people will come into the neighborhood – possibly young frat bro types who have loud parties or what not. But I just found the concept interesting: Shared housing for those who live life in common

We’re a community of passionate and creative people who live, work, and play together.

Be part of a collaborative and welcoming culture that fosters a strong sense of community.

We’re opening a brand new home in Shaw in December 2016.

Our newest DC residence has 24 bedrooms, each with a private en-suite bath, as well as large shared spaces for cooking, dining and hanging. It’s the perfect place to create community.

12 month pricing starting at $1,700/Month”

“This cooler weather has me craving Brunswick Stew again, and back home around this time of year, I could always count on picking some up at my or other local churches. I think some of the local clubs sold it also.

I’ve tried making it several times, but I can never get the recipe right, so I’ve accepted the fact that I should just go back to buying it.

Does anyone know of local churches or clubs who sell some amazing Brunswick Stew? Thanks!”
