“$1025 Roommate for 3 BR/2.5 bath Bloomingdale rowhouse

We have a room opening up in our warm, furnished rowhouse starting mid-February (earlier move in may be possible). We’re hoping to live with someone who’s sticking around for a year.

The two other roommates are in their mid-twenties/early-thirties (both female). One is from California, has lived in D.C. for 12 years and travels often for work. The other is a more recent Midwestern transplant who works for a media org and watches just about everything on all the TV streaming services. We’re tidy, friendly and enjoy spending time with each other, while having friends of our own. (more…)

From an email:

“Fun fact: Matt Croke is actually not an American citizen.

That is until 8am Tuesday when he gets sworn in! Most of us will have to work that morning and quite frankly it’s difficult to get a beer at that hour, so the celebration will commence at 5pm at the Stone! Wear some red, white and blue and celebrate the one and only Matt Croke finally becoming legitimized!”

“I’m sitting outside of the bloomingdale dry cleaners on Rhode Island ave and just noticed these street marker-kind-of banners… any idea who manages? How I could get replaced? They’re all sun-bleached and the picture is just row houses (kind of redundant) and a small “BLOOMINGDALE”.”

I would inquire with the Bloomingdale Civic Association. But what do you guys think about the banners – replace them with new ones or go banner-less?
