Newark Street Park Woof and Wag Fundraiser!

The sun is out, the birds are chirping, and the dogs are back to wagging at the park…It’s about time!

Come celebrate spring with us, and our four legged friends, at the Newark Street Dog Park.

Sunday May 3, 2015 2p-5p
Newark St NW and 39th St NW

We’ll have burgers (veggie/beef) and dogs (hot dogs that is) from our friends at Whole Foods Market Tenley, games with prizes from local stores and restaurants like
La Piquette DC, Cactus Cantina, Unleashed by Petco, Wylie Wagg, Roofers Union, Ripple and more!

You’ll also have the opportunity to begin, or renew, your annual membership with the Newark Street Park K-9 Friends to support the operations and development of the Newark Street Dog Park (DC).

So ‘shake a leg’ and come out to play!

Historic DC Alley Kitten for Adoption!

know it’s kitten season and there are plenty for adoption these days, but this little guy is pretty special. He’s been hanging out near the historic Chapman Stables soaking up DC history before embarking on his search for a forever home.

Add to that he is super cute, super playful, and super purr-ful!

If May is a good month to add a kitten to your household, I’d love to hear from you.

Details: I’d estimate he’s about 8-weeks old. He is getting a well baby visit with the vet this morning, but he is not yet neutered or microchipped. He’s very, very social and would do best with another pet in the house (he’s friendly with both older cats and my large dog). We’re still finessing the litter box thing, but he’s only had 36 hours to learn about it just yet.

Fitbit Found on New Hampshire Avenue

I found a Fitbit on the southbound side of New Hampshire Avenue this morning, a few blocks north of the Petworth Metro. It likely belongs to a lady, as it is in what looks like a Tori Burch band. I’ve already contacted Fitbit so see if they can get it to the owner, but in the meantime thought I’d post here. If it is yours leave me a way to get a hole of you. Thanks.

Sales tax in DC at Sephora?

So, two family members from out of town were shopping in Georgetown today, and they asked me why the sales tax was different at Sephora (6.00%) vs the other stores they went to (Blue Mercury and Zara’s (5.75%). I checked both their receipts and said I had no idea. When I called Sephora, largely because I was curious, they said that sales tax in DC was 6% … which it is not. Can stores tack on additional taxes to the standard 5.75%? Any idea what happened here?

Canadian Pharmacy Recommendation Needed

Fed up with high prices (even with insurance) for some meds, I’m exploring the confusing world of online Canadian pharmacies. I know there are several “accreditation” sites, and I’ve looked at their lists, but the sheer number of these operations is kind of daunting. Has anyone had any good or bad experience with any of them?

Columbia Heights Escalator Issues?

Is it just me, or does it seem like the escalators at the CH metro are constantly under construction? Can anyone explain why those escalators have so many issues compared to ones elsewhere?

Intruder in my backyard – AGAIN, same guy!!! (4/27/15)

It has happened at again at 9:30pm tonight, so I’ve worked very hard to get the information online fast and hopefully help track down this intruder.

It has happened again, just two weeks since my last post. I actually ran outside and saw him leaving my alley; then went to the front of my home to see him going South Down the West side of 18th street. Please provide any information if you saw this man at 9:30pm tonight.

Just filed a police report for unlawful entry (11pm).

Here is my first post for reference (http://www.popville.com/2015/04/from-the-forum-intruder-in-my-backyard/)

History of the Park Regent Apartments in Mount Pleasant

The Park Regent is a beautiful building and I’ve been trying to do some research on its history but have found nothing so I was wondering if anyone out there knew anything about this building (when it was built, the architect etc.)? The building has one bedroom apartments and studio apartments and one of the things I’m really curious about is if the studios were always studios or are they converted two bedroom apartments or something. It seems weird to have an old building with that kind of setup – of one bedrooms and studios.

Day of the Dog Festival and 5k at Congressional Cemetery: May 2

Join us for our annual puppypalooza on May 2 from 10 to 3 as we celebrate everything we love about dogs! Congressional Cemetery is known on Capitol Hill as one of the best places to walk dogs, but usually that privilege is reserved for K9 Corps members. However, on Day of the Dog the cemetery will be open to all members of the public and their pups – a special opportunity for dog lovers to experience this beautiful and historic site. Many local pet vendors and services will participate, including rescue organizations with dogs available for adoption.

Admission will be FREE for all dogs and humans, with tickets for sale for special activities, including a raffle. Registration for the 5k and kids run are $40 and $10, respectively. Activities will include contests and games (for both kids and dogs), demonstrations, free yoga, and pet portraits by artist Erin Murray. Some of the most popular of DC’s food trucks will be there, and beer-tasting tables will be hosted by Port City Brewing Company and Atlas Brew Works.

Adding value to the neighborhood is an issue!!!

So I’m in the process of getting my home renovated and to my surprise neighbors are complaining about the work being done which has all been permitted. The contractor received a fine due to neighbors putting their debri in the dumpster making it impossible to move. Might I add the neighbor directly across the street is getting work done to their home and has used my dumpster on several occasions and I had to confront them multiple times.
However, what is most interesting is that today I was in my car speaking with a neighbor and some random guy a few blocks down walks up on my porch and looks in the window. I get out of my car and asked him could I help him and I was greeted with a snobby attitude and some under the breath remark. So I told him to get the fuck off my porch and to not bring his ass up there again. Someone tries to add value to the neighborhood and these sneaky, noisy, disrespectful ass neighbors can’t handle it.
And the fact that he lives more than 3 blocks away really intrigued me. Go in your own damn house and mind your business or better yet renovate your house I’m sure that’ll occupy your time more than worrying about what I’m doing.

In need of a Thursday feeder for a community cat colony

I help take care of a community cat colony in Petworth by feeding them once a week. They are all sterilized, vaccinated and doing well. We’ve lost our Thursday feeder and are in need of someone to step in. It’s very easy – all you need to do is set out some food and water. No cat experience is needed. I’m happy to supply the food if that’s a concern.

Many thanks,
Abby
