As always, all are welcome – young and old, brand new and experienced dancers. No partner, lessons, overalls, or frilly dress needed. Just walk on in and dance.

Found 9th St NW/O-P NW &- Black Backpack

It was in a parking space against the curb, halfway between N & O on the east side of 9th Street NW, so I suspect it fell out of/off of a car. It’s full of CFA study guides and black binders of class notes as well as a couple of personal items.
Message me if you lost it & tell me what the personal items are; we will get it back to you somehow.

Lost dog, Mt Pleasant, Wednesday afternoon

My neighbor & I saw a dog with no collar walking down Oakwood Ter in Mt Pleasant. Medium sized, black and white. He seemed very friendly. Was missing his collar. We pet him, but then he ran across 17th up the driveway of The Village apartment complex. These streets border on the park, so maybe he slipped away during a walk on the nearby trail.
I wanted to get the info & pic out there in case anyone recognizes him. 17th is a curvy street that could be very dangerous for a loose dog.

Two Northwest DC families ISO nanny for nanny share

We are two DC couples – Lindsey & Aaron, and Gabey & Luke – looking for a nanny share for our two baby girls begging in March 2017. Inez and Ellie Bea were born 10/18 and 11/4 and will be around 4 months old when our Nanny share begins.

We hope to find a Nanny that can provide care for a minimum of 40 hrs a week (M-F), with some flexibility for additional hours on an as needed basis (additional hrs will be paid 1.5 times of regular pay).

To begin, the location would be Lindsey and Aaron’s home in Cleveland Park which is walking distance from both the Woodley Park and Cleveland Park Metro, and directly accessible by the L1 and L2 Bus lines. Later on we may rotate the location between their home and Gabey and Luke’s home in Colombia Heights (also Metro accessible).

For the right Nanny, we hope to be able to provide health coverage through a service, 2 weeks paid vacation and an additional 3-5 paid sick days as well as all 11 federal holidays off.

Please contact me if you are interested in the position – we would love to set up a time to talk to see if we are a good fit.

Thanks,
Gabey

DC Businesses – Help say NO to FIREARMS at Inauguration 2017

Goods Not Guns is giving away 300 FIREARMS PROHIBITED signs in advance of the 2017 inauguration. Get yours today!

Preparations are well underway to welcome tens of thousands of visitors to Washington, D.C. for the inauguration of our next president and the Women’s March on Washington. Both events promise national press coverage and the convergence of people from all walks of life, backgrounds and political beliefs.

In advance of the upcoming inauguration, in an effort to send a message to our soon-to-be new White House neighbor, Donald Trump, to a Republican Congress and to this Nation as a whole, Goods Not Guns is giving away 300 DC-law compliant “Firearms Prohibited” signs to eligible businesses in the District.

Based on a 2014 Federal court ruling, D.C. law permits anyone with a permit to carry a concealed weapon onto the premises of non-residential private property unless the property owner informs individuals that “firearms are prohibited,” verbally or with a regulation compliant sign.

Do you want to support our local community by keeping concealed weapons out of your store? Join the movement. Hang a sign.

If your business would like a sign, please visit us at http://www.goodsnotguns.com and use promotion code INAUGURATION at checkout (we will waive the $20 sign charge, and only charge a small fee for shipping).

Want to do more? Consider carrying a Goods Not Gun tote bag! Also available at goodsnotguns.com.

Please help us spread the word to all of your favorite neighborhood shops.

Any 'must-see' holiday events?

Hi all,

Since it is *nearly* December and I am fairly new to DC, I was wondering if there are any must-see holiday events that I should go to! Also, I would really like to attend a performance of the Nutcracker, has anyone seen the Washington Ballet version?

Thanks!

14th Street Bike Lane in Columbia Heights

New striping started going down to extend the bike lane from Columbia Road to at least Euclid. It also cuts down the car lanes from two to one, with I’m guessing some left turn lanes. As of this morning’s commute I didn’t see any signs pointing out the change. I also couldn’t find anything online where the change was announced.

Props to the Cops-Attempted robbery

This afternoon, around 12pm, my partner was sitting in his car writing an email on his phone in front of Streets Market on 14th when a man approached the car and knocked on the window. He lowered the window a couple inches, and the man demanded that he hand over everything on him. Luckily a car turned up the street at that moment, distracting the would-be robber, and he was able to drive away and call the police. Police were on the scene in 20 minutes, and were able to apprehend the suspect, as he had already robbed someone right before. Thanks to the police, this guy is off the streets, at least for now.
