If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 3-4 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.
“Pancho from Columbia Heights, clearly not enjoying his spa day!”
“Traubert (named for a Tom Waits song) says goodbye to his DC home in Takoma for a sojourn in Memphis.”
This rental is located at 809 813 6th Street, Northwest. The listing says:
“Turn key boutique condo for lease comes partially furnished. Condo is located one block to Gallery Place metro, restaurants, shopping and entertainment. Condo features hardwood floors, 10 ft ceilings, subway tile bathrooms, stainless steel appliances and washer dryer.”
Or as my neighborhood is dubbing it “Nightmare on Buchanan St”.
On the 1400 block of Buchanan St NW they completely razed a beautiful Wardman rowhome without the proper permissions, causing structural failure to the adjoining homes. DCRA is asking the neighbors, whose houses were damaged, to pay for new firewalls and re-enforcement. This blatant disregard to the neighborhood (and the permitting process) is frightening. If you see what’s been done, it’s absolutely awful. I’ve never seen anything like it in any neighborhood in DC. The one of the house you can see white because there is absolutely nothing but daylight behind the brick. There is nothing in place to even keep the façade standing. It’s a miracle the façade hasn’t crumbled.”
This house is located at 974 Florida Avenue, Northwest. The listing says:
“This place feels right….Light , airy, modern & a Great location! Sharp kitchen w/stainless steel appliances & granite tops. Big yard for parking or extended living space.

“Texas de Brazil is carving a new experience in fine dining. The restaurant is an authentic Brazilian-American “Churrascaria” or steakhouse that combines the cuisines of Southern Brazil with the generous spirit of Texas.
Treat yourself to our 50-60 item seasonal salad area including appetizers, gourmet vegetables, soups, and salads. Turn your place card to green and prepare to be swarmed by a troop of carvers generously serving various cuts of seasoned beef, lamb, pork, chicken and Brazilian sausage, all accompanied by traditional side items and house-baked Brazilian cheese bread. As you dine endlessly on Brazilian fare, let one of our in-house wine connoisseurs select the perfect pairing from our extensive, award-winning wine lists, or sip on a freshly-made signature cocktail-the Caipirinha. Complete your dining experience with one of our many decadent dessert selections, and then relax with an after-dinner drink, steaming espresso or a hand-rolled cigar and enjoy the ambiance and service perfection that is uniquely Texas de Brazil.”
You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.
