“Hi PoPville neighbors!

We believe that our cat, Beedie, got out of the house on Thursday (9/11) when some contractors were doing some work and we’re hoping that he’s alive and still nearby.

If you happen to see an orange american shorthair with small white rings on his tail in the 5th and Hamilton St. NW area of Petworth, please contact Erik at 202.302.6695. He’s 11 years old and has only been an indoor cat so he may be scared/hiding.

Again, please contact me if you’ve seen this cat.

Thank you!
~Erik”

“Dear PoPville,

What to do about a neighbor who has been running an electrical generator early nonstop since Saturday? It’s definitely a noise nuisance, and I’m pretty sure no one should need to do this if they have power otherwise. Any ideas? This is near the intersection of 13th and Taylor. Finally called MPD last night who said an officer would be dispatched, but it only shut off for some brief period in the night and was back on before I left for work this morning.”

After destroying Petworth Citizen back in November, The Post’s Tom Sietsema is much happier with chef Makoto Hamamura other restaurant Crane & Turtle located across the street. He writes:

“The food at Crane & Turtle can sometimes make you swoon and other times make you scratch your head. One thing you will never be is bored.”

Which is a phenomenal upgrade from the Petworth Citizen review:

“Reaction, after three visits: The check can’t come soon enough.”

From a press release:

“”Chez Billy, the neighborhood French bistro in the heart of Petworth, will begin serving its democratically-designed brunch on Sunday, September 7. Brunch will be served every Sunday from 11am-3pm.

Created by Executive Chef Brendan L’Etoile–and based upon a poll Chez Billy ran in concert with PoPville earlier this summer–the menu highlights traditional French fare, classic brunch items, and vegetarian options. Dishes like Brioche French toast with apple rum-raisin & pecan syrup, croque madame, sweet potato hash, made with piquillo peppers, caramelized onions, smoked paprika, poached eggs and hollandaise and Chez Billy’s famous Royale With Cheese 6oz burger will be available for brunch.

“We love our neighbors in Petworth and wanted to give them a great, no-fuss brunch with amazing food, “ says General Manager, Justin Marshall. “We asked our guests—and then the neighborhood at large via PoPville–to tell us what they wanted, and we received input from hundreds of neighbors. We took the feedback we received very seriously and think everyone will be pleased with what we’ve come up with.”

In addition to the food menu, Chez Billy will offer $15 bottomless mimosas, Petworth’s own Qualia coffee, house-made sodas and of course, an extensive wine menu.

Reservations can be made by calling 202.506.2080.”
