Where do I get a replacement skeleton key?

Our row house was built in 1924 and still has all of the original doors and locks. Luckily, the former owner passed down a skeleton key that worked in all doors. Unluckily, we have lost that key. Any idea where I could buy another?

DC Arts Center "Experience Auction" fundraiser

The DC Arts Center third annual “Experience Auction” Fundraiser

The things you get to do are better than stuff you have to have.

The DC Arts Center, one of Washington, DC’s most respected art galleries, is continuing its tradition of proving that experiences are indeed more valuable than things. While the best things in life may not be free, doing is quite often better than having. The event will raise necessary funds for the DC Arts Center, one of Washington, DC’s most unique arts centers.

Many fundraising auctions are a basic live auction and silent auction format featuring donated works of art. The DCAC Experience Auction offers unique, once in a lifetime experiences. Offering experiences as opposed to static works of art helps prevent distortion of an artwork’s fair market value.

Experiences up for auction include a behind the scenes tour of a Theater, an in-home performance by a vocalist, the opportunity to collaborate with guerrilla painters, and many more one-of-a-kind experiences created just for the Experience Auction.

The auction takes place Thursday May 21st, 2015 starting at 7pm at the historic Kennedy-Warren building located at 3133 Connecticut Ave, NW Washington, DC 20008. There will be a DJ spinning great music, h’ors doeuvres, live performances, the silent and live auction, and a cash bar. Valet parking will be provided.

Join us in collecting memories all while supporting a great cause. Tickets for the DCAC Experience Auction are $90 for DCAC members and $120 for non-members. The non-member fee includes a membership to DCAC. Tickets can be purchased at: http://bitly.com/1O7UMh4

About DC Arts Center:

Located at 2438 18th Street, NW in Washington, DC the District of Columbia Arts Center serves the Washington, DC area by presenting high-caliber challenging works, encouraging professionalism among artists, and by providing a forum for education and cultural exchange. DCAC was founded in 1989 as an alternative arts center for local artists in response to eroding support for local artists. Since then our 800 square foot gallery and 50 seat black box theater have been a hub of creativity in the visual and performing arts. Artists of all types, including poets, painters, actors, storytellers, sculptors and performance artists, have been drawn to DCAC.

finding parking in Dupont Circle

I live in Dupont and I have a young woman come and clean my apartment once a month. The last two times she came, she couldn’t find any parking and had to leave. I’d like to keep using her, but this is getting ridiculous. I think she only spends about 1-2 hours in my place cleaning, and I wonder if she can just park on the no parking side of our street with her hazards on. Has anyone else had this issue? Any possible solutions?

If there is no solution, I may have to switch to another cleaning service, perhaps one that drops off and picks up their cleaners.

Stolen Jamis Road Bike

Hi PoP

My bike was stolen out of my backyard Friday night. It’s a emerald-green Jamis Satellite Comp road bike. It has a silver bottle cage, caged pedals, and (at the time) front and rear headlights and small saddle bag.

We live in Petworth, just a few blocks east of the metro. Our rear gate, which is normally closed, was stuck open and the thief walked into the backyard and walked out with the bike, probably triggering our motion spotlight on the way in.

If anyone sees it, I would appreciate it! It’s a little dirty and has some scratches on it, but I wasn’t prepared to give it up yet.

Thanks!

Intruder in my backyard (1800 Newton NW Block) on 4/11/2015

I discovered an intruder was casing my backyard at 3:03AM Saturday morning. I was informed that my neighbor 4 houses down had an intruder in their backyard Monday morning. I have video surveillance, and below are videos from Saturday. I have other videos from Monday as well that may help with my neighbor’s case.

I contacted the police via 911, and they were quick to dismiss the case as nothing was stolen or broken in to. Never-the-less I pressed and they sent an officer that looked at the wrong yard, and never came to my door.

Please email this thread if you also had an intrusion, seen a suspicious person, or have images/video from the 1800 block Engleside/Newton alley.

Hopefully posting here can at least make the neighborhood aware of this problem, and help stop these intrusions.

– Ben

Found Lost Dog in CoHi

Hi,

Did anyone lose this cute white pit puppy?? We found her tonight around 10:30pm running in the street outside our place in Columbia Heights on Girard St. We called MPD who was super helpful and they held onto her until the WHS arrived. She had a collar but no tag or micro chip. The puppy was super sweet and friendly, so we figured she must belong to someone!

Hope her owner is found!

DC Water Holding Reno Permit Hostage

I am in the process of gearing up to renovate my residence (and by “process” I mean I have been awaiting a permit from DCRA for 6 months and counting). True to the experiences of many my permit has encountered the tradional ‘flags’ that others have run into; I have confirmed that my architect has been diligently responding to the numerous, sundry reviewer comments. That said, we’ve run into one stumbling block that my architect has never experienced while getting approval to renovate a residential row house. My project includes the addition of a bathroom. DC Water has flagged the permit citing that the copper water service lines servicing the house – at 5/8″ – are too small. This is a code revision that is less than 10 years old. The water meter pit for my house sits in my front yard and about 5 feet from the front of my house. It is reasonable(ish) to me that I (as the resident) might appropriately held responsible for upgrading the water service line that leads from the meter and connects directly into the house. ***My frustration is that DC Water is insisting that I (the homeowner) am also responsible for upgrading the line from the water main (in the middle of the street) all the way to the water meter pit.*** The fact that all of water lines OUTSIDE of the house reside on public property made me raise an eyebrow about any of this requirement. But, making the homeowner financially responsible for tearing up the street, sidewalk and the front yard up to the water meter pit seems criminal. I am left with either removing the bathroom/scaling back the project or paying and ASTRONOMICAL and unexpected price to tear up the street/sidewalk/yard. In the meantime DC Water is holding my permit hostage; refusing to sign-off on their portion of the permit approvals. Anyone had any experience with this type of requirement from DC Water for a residential row house in DC?

Accountant for Tax Help

Hey Popville world:

I find myself on April 14 trying to file my overly complicated tax return. Can anyone recommend a trustworthy, affordable accountant in DC? Thought I could finagle it on TurboTax but I’ve lived in 2 states this year and did some independent contract work so it’s become very confusing. Would really appreciate a referral! Thanks

FOUND CAT

Large orange tabby with a white tip tail. Looks like she’s had a litter, front claws have been de-clawed. Super big love bug. Found on the 300 block of Allison St. Was also said to have been seen by neighbors in the alley between Allison and Webster as well.

Fairly certain she isn’t a free roaming cat based on the fact that she didn’t seem comfortable outside. She really wanted to come into my house, then jumped into a friends car and then when I picked her up she burrowed her face into my armpit and stayed that way until I brought her inside.

I have 2 cats and a kiddo at home and can’t keep her for long. Very hopeful I can find her people.
