“The new Y2K pop up bar was designed and built by two local female artists. Anna Pineapple and Kira Tai are the founders of Pineapple Tai Entertainment, a boutique arts and entertainment company.
The pop up bar features a 2000 New Year’s Eve ball drop, Lisa Frank tribute wall, a retro game room, and hundreds of collectible items from the late 90s and early 2000s. Among the things you’ll see on the bar: all 5 of the *NSYNC marionette dolls, flip phones, hit clips, furbies, Macintosh computers, and all your favorite forgotten movies, artists, and books.
The bar tops and tables are covered with hand cut and arranged magazine clips and photos from 1995-2005. There are over 1,000 CDs on the walls and hung from the ceiling.
There are themed cocktails on the menu including Spiced Girls, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Baby Phat, and Kill Bill. Food is also served from the restaurant downstairs, Rewind.”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share for the regular fix 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. AdoPtville is run by two volunteers who compile these pets weekly from local shelters.
Meatball is everything you could want in a kitty! He’s a great cat who entertains himself with toys and morning zoomies. He’d be good as a solo cat but would also enjoy partnering up with a playful small dog. The quintessential shadow cat, Meatball likes to be where the people are; he’ll even keep your feet warm when you’re sitting at the table, but he’s courteous about leaving you alone at night if you’re sleeping. He loves being pet and will even let you hold him like a baby. He’ll also keep you on schedule for his feedings with a sweet meow. In short, once you get a taste of Meatball, you’ll want more! Apply today.
Lennox is an affectionate, loyal, obedient dog who loves attention from people. He wags not only his tail, but his entire back end with enthusiasm! His wiggly butt is the exclamation point to his joy. Lennox always makes himself available for a good snuggle or kisses when you need them. He is a fan of long walks or runs and would be a good partner to someone who loves the outdoors or is a runner. He has excellent leash manners and knows several commands: sit, lay down, stay, come, heel, stop (stop at curb when walking) and don’t pull (when on leash). He also responds to his name. While Lennox is really sweet with people, he is more particular about the dogs he is friendly with. He might do best as an only dog until he learns how to properly introduce himself to other dogs. In the meantime, Lennox is pretty happy hanging out with people. His friendly, outgoing and energetic nature makes him a great companion. Apply today to meet this good boy.

Did a quick search on the site but couldn’t find anything relating to good places for guitar lessons (for adults) in DC – Trying to pick up a new hobby and teach myself, but wasn’t sure if people had any good suggestions for places to take lessons?”

From Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton’s office:
“Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) announced that today she introduced the Marijuana in Federally Assisted Housing Parity Act of 2019, which would permit the use of marijuana in federally assisted housing, including public housing and Section 8 housing, in compliance with the marijuana laws of the state where the property is located. Under current federal law, the users of drugs that are illegal under federal law, including marijuana, are prohibited from being admitted into federally assisted housing. Federal law also allows landlords to evict residents of federally assisted housing for drug use. Norton says that individuals living in federally assisted housing should not be denied admission, or fear eviction, for using a product legal in their state. Both adult use and medical use of marijuana is currently legal in 33 states and the District of Columbia and over 90 percent of Americans support legalized medical marijuana. (more…)
