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.

PoPville 6 year anniversary cake by Michelle’s Cakes

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!

Sorry for the typo – of course it’s 2012!

Looking forward to seeing everyone tonight for the PoPville six year anniversary party at Meridian Pint (11th and Park Rd, NW.)

There will be a special cask from DC Brau for the occasion:

The Rider

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

Vital Stats
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
Abv: 7.3%

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.

See ya tonight!

Thanks again to Meridian Pint (11th and Park Rd, NW) and DC Brau for hosting the 6 year PoPville anniversary party this Thursday from 5pm – close. And thanks to all of you who’ve made PoPville what it is today. I will be at Meridian Pint at 5pm and plan on being coherent until approximately 10pm after that I make no guarantees… Looking forward to seeing lots of old and new faces – see ya Thursday!
