From a press release:

“Just two moths after the debut of their first beers, Bardo [1200 Bladensburg Rd, NE] is introducing another wave of brews, bringing the total number of beers on tap to thirteen. Black sour, imperial brown ale, imperial IPA and a dark IPA, as well as dry hopped versions of the imperial IPA and the black IPA will be tapped Thursday, Sept 25th.

Bardo is extremely excited about the debut of the GABF bronze medal winning, imperial IPA, Dremo Tibetan Sasquatch. “Dremo started as one of our cult favorites. It gradually became less of a secret and evolved into our flagship beer.” commented Bardo Brewpub’s Andrew Stewart. “It has been the number one question we have fielded since pulling the brewery out of storage, ‘When is Dremo going to be ready?’.”

Bardo’s Facebook page says:

“We have expanded our cold storage and added more serving tanks. The new brews have been transferred from the fermenters and we now have THIRTEEN beers on tap – including 3 dry hopped and one oak aged. The debut coincides with our Thursday special of all you can drink for $20. Just ask the bartender for the unlimited special.”

From MPD:

“Tonight [Monday] at approximately 5:38 pm, citizens observed an adult male suspect making forced entry into a residence in the 1100 block of 8th St. NE and called 911. First District Officers quickly set up a perimeter and were assisted by K9 units. The suspect was later found inside and placed under arrest without incident.

Thanks to the outstanding work of First District Officers and the concerned neighbors, a burglary suspect was quickly apprehended and placed under arrest.”

From an email:

“One day. Dozens of lessons, workshops, and classes taught by your neighbors — Washington D.C. residents. The Day of Learning is an opportunity for the city’s community to learn from and teach each other. From an introduction to hand-dancing, to getting the low-down on mixing the city’s signature cocktail (the Gin Rickey), to exploring D.C.’s neighborhoods, the Day of Learning celebrates D.C.’s vibrant culture, history, and people. The Day of Learning is a lively and community-driven event that unites the District through sharing who we are and what we know. Tickets and info at”

“Vol. 3 right here – I bought a place off Benning Road NE recently. I was advised after moving in that people would take anything not nailed down. Being the enfant terrible that I am, I decided to hang some Christmas lights on the house and a wreath on the door. While hanging the lights, an older woman stopped, came into the yard, and told me about how my house, way back in the day, would have the nicest holiday decorations in the neighborhood. She thanked me for helping her to remember a happy time and told me she wants to see lights on my house every Christmas from now on.”

Ed. Note: We hear a lot about crime in certain neighborhoods. This is the other side of the coin. If you have a story/experience from your own mean streets please send a brief description in an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dog)com and include what neighborhood you live in.
