I am trying to get my hands on a photo of the GALA/Tivoli Theater from 2000. This was long before Giant was built and when the theater was in a state of decline. I was in the theater earlier this week and they have a great photo in a display but there were no photo credits. I took a photo on my iphone to show my husband and he loved it and said he would love a copy…I thought it might be a good Christmas gift to explore for him. The photo I am looking for is taken from the corner (where the Vitamin Store is now located) and shows the vacant lot where Giant is now located….(know to some long time residents as the Monroe Street Beach). Thanks for any suggestions.
I’m trying to organize some arts-and-crafts workshops this spring and summer, but I’m not sure where to hold them, or how to find enough people who’d want to go. I’m pretty flexible on the kinds of activities– I can do anything from building miniature gardens to papercraft to knitting– and I can teach kids or adults, but I need a space and an audience. Can anyone recommend a good place to start?
In a few months I’ll be moving out of DC–after 8+ years here. I’ve tried to be a pretty active resident in terms of sightseeing and activities, but are there any must sees I might have missed? I’m thinking more “off the beaten path” places or events (outside of the Smithsonians, art museums, monuments) that I’d want to check out before it’s too late. Thanks!
Hi Popville: I’m planning to participate on a photography contest in which the winning photo(s) will be published on a fashion magazine. I am looking for one or two people to be on the photo, no modeling experience required and the only thing I may ask the participant(s) is to dress up a little bit.
Please e-mail me to firstname.lastname@example.org if interested and I’ll give you more details.

Hi all! Earlier this fall, my boyfriend and I went to Eastern Market and found a vendor selling hand-painted coins from around the world, which he’d made into cufflings, belt buckles, etc. He had an old Air Force coin that he’d made into a belt buckle, and I’d really like to get it as a surprise for my boyfriend for his birthday, but I’ve been back to Eastern Market twice this month, and I can’t seem to find him!
Does anyone else know who this vendor is or how I can get in touch with him?
Small beagle mix named Riley lost in Rock Creek Park near the ampitheatre and tennis courts midday Saturday, November 18th. She has a short black coat, brown markings, and a white chest and paws. She ran off with her tags, harness, and leash. Photo at www.facebook.com/lostriley
If you see her, please call Remy at 206-225-8595 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. She is likely cold and scared and we truly appreciate any information you might have. We appreciate your help.
Reward if found. Thank you!
I am looking to rent a small studio space a few times a month to host a pop up art workshop. It would be for 8-10 children and their parents. Does anyone know of a place to search for spaces like this? (or does any one know of businesses willing to rent out sections of their space?)
After my mother passed 4 years ago, I inherited a bunch of her craft supplies (on top of those I already owned). I would like to donate these supplies to a specific cause, rather than to Goodwill/Salvation Army.
The craft supplies I want to donate include:
Scrapbooking – Paper, embellishments, pens/pencils/markers
Beading – Beads (glass, plastic, crystal), clasps, jump rings, tools, etc.
Photography – 35mm film (probably expired, but I bet it would still work), dark room paper, and books
Books – Knitting, beading and quilting
Knitting – Yarn (acyrlic & cotton)
As a sidenote…I don’t have a car, so I would have to mail the supplies or use public transportation.
My parents are visiting from West TN this week and I’m looking for some restaurant suggestions in DC proper. Ideally, I’d like to take them somewhere interesting and unique to DC, but I also need it to be relatively quiet, not super crowded and at a price tag that won’t offend their West TN sensibilities. Any ideas?
We have some guests coming in from out of town who have never been apple picking. Can folks recommend their favorite orchards? We won’t have kids with us, so not a component, necessarily, to consider. We’re also willing to travel a bit if it’s worth it. Thanks!
Has anyone here had a whole house water filter installed in their house?
Did it remove chlorine and sediments from your line?
Did it require a lot of maintenance/cleaning, and/or did it affect your home’s water pressure?
Can you tell me if the water was good to drink afterwards, or if it’s good for showering?
Also, if possible, let me know the cost & brand if you like the (whole house) water filter you use.
I’ve been drinking bottled water until now, but during the plumbing stage of a total renovation of my house, I’m wondering if it’s worth it to get a whole house water filter?
Thanks POP community!
Does anyone know how to find a decent personal injury attorney? I have no idea and I obviously don’t want to call one of the sleazy ones on tv. But I’ve got lingering pain from a car accident and I may be past the point of working it out with the insurance company on my own.
I work at a non-profit and we’re looking for a good DC-based graphic design company to help us build our annual report. In addition to print, there may be web/flash components to this. Not a deal maker/breaker, but it would also be great if they had a special interest in nonprofits/social causes. Has anyone used or consulted with a graphic design company that fits the bill?
Thanks in advance!
