Well, we made a few changes over the weekend! Over the last few months we’ve been working on correcting some glitches and modernizing the site. Like many readers, I find change to be painful. Having said that, I also know when change is necessary. The site badly needed an upgrade. (Folks who had issues searching neighborhoods, restaurants, etc will know what I’m talking about.) The new site will correct those issues and make reading on hand held devices (especially cell phones) much much easier. Of course we are still ironing out a few kinks so if you have any problems please let us know in the comments here or even better let me know via email at princepetworth(at)gmail(dot)com. You may have noticed that you will require a new log in but it’s really easy. All you have to do is reset your password. For anyone having problems signing in – we can help you here. Though of course, you can still comment without registering if you prefer. (more…)
Well – my wife and I are having a baby! I’m gonna be offline for the next couple of days so I may not get to your emails right away. The posting schedule will also be a bit lighter than usual today and tomorrow but we’ll be back to normal (if a bit groggy with more than usual spelling and grammar errors) next week! Thanks everyone.
You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
I just wanted to thank everyone who made it out to the party last night. It was great seeing folks who I’ve now known for your years and it was equally great meeting so many new faces. Thanks to DC Brau for providing a great new beer. And a special thanks to Meridian Pint for being an incredible host.
Also just a little heads up – on Monday – the site will officially switch from www.princeofpetworth.com to www.PoPville.com. After six years the site has grown to cover nearly all of DC’s neighborhoods and PoPville has come to represent these areas. And since our twitter and flickr pool is @PoPville it just makes sense to unify the name. If anyone experiences technical difficulties after the switch please let me know. If you use the old URL you will automatically be redirected to PoPville. Please note, my email is staying the same at princeofpetworth(at)gmail if you have any problems. Thanks to all for sticking with me all these years and thanks to all for sharing your incredible knowledge and experiences. Can’t wait to see what we learn next year!
There will be a special cask from DC Brau for the occasion:
Appearance — Deep Amber, Garnet, Cherry undertones
Aroma – Sticky melon, resinous hop zest, warming alcohol, herbal
Taste – medium bodied, moderate bitterness, noticeable alcohol, lingering hop presence on back of the pallet, spicy
Style: West Coast Style Red ale brewed with a Belgian yeast
Malt: Pale 2 row, C-40, C-120, Melanoidin and Belgian Special B
Yeast: Wyeast 1762 Belgian Abbey II
Hops: Simcoe and Experimental Hop Union variety
Ibu’s: approx 35
I’ll be there at 5pm until around 11pm (depending upon how many of the above I drink.)
If you’ve never met me before I’ll be wearing an old school green PoP t-shirt and I have a ridiculous mustache as I’ve been trying to raise money on Boundary Stone’s Movember Team in the fight against prostate cancer.
For those who’ve been asking about PoP shirts, I’ll bring some with me but there are only limited sizes though I promise to be making the new ones, including the U Street logo winners, soon.
