From a press release:
“Miracle on 7th Street (1843 7th Street NW) returns for a fourth year of over-the-top holiday cheer on Black Friday, November 23. Or, as Drink Company call its, Black & White Friday, since the new pop-up bar highlights D.C.’s most iconic residents: pandas!

Expect panda-monium at this year’s Miracle on 7th, which features a panda mural, panda mugs and more adorable panda moments. This year, guests can ring the jingle-bell canopy, step inside a giant New Year’s Eve ball and share a kiss in the mistletoe photo booth. (more…)
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.
Hello, I’m Connie! Are you looking for a marathon training partner? Or maybe someone to jump start a workout routine? I’m here for it! I’m a beautiful, 40-pound collie mix, and hope to find a family who can give me the exercise and training I love! I would prefer that my new home be adults-only, as I love to be the center of attention in a calm, quiet household.
I’m what my foster family calls a “velcro” dog; I love being with you, no matter what! I’m an affectionate, happy-go-lucky girl who loves learning and seeing new things. My foster mom says I am the most polite guest, because I’m potty trained and very well-behaved (I like to show off my “sit” skills). My favorite hobbies are chasing and being chased by my foster brother, following my foster mom around the house, and playing fetch, rain or shine!
Howdy, the name’s Rowdy! I’m an older gent but don’t let that fool you, I love to play with wand toys and stuffed mice. I’m a sweet guy that loves to cuddle with you on the couch to watch tv or while you read a book. I love to get chin scratches. I’m very reserved and would love a quiet house to live out my retirement. I love a good snack and also a nice cat bed that I can knead to perfection.
If you’re interested in meeting me, I would love to see you and hopefully I can fit into your life. Please contact my foster mom if you’d like to meet me. [email protected] You can also find more information here.

Where do people get their Christmas trees and what do they like about their favorite places? Quality of tree? Price? Convenience?
For a number of years we’ve been quite pleased with getting ours really close to home at Old City Farm. We started getting our tree from them back when they were on 9th & O St. (or maybe P St, can’t quite recall) and have continued since they moved to 9th & Rhode Island.
Over these many years we’ve only gotten one or at most two not so great trees from them and living in Bloomingdale you can’t beat the convenience.
But over the last couple of years it seems their prices have gone up a bit and last year for a 8-9 foot Fraser fir tree we spent something like $120. We’d rather not do that again.
I know you can get cheaper trees at Home Depot. But that’s also not quite for us. Who has a go-to place that they swear by for trees? We’d love to find a place that is less than $10/foot in the city but still high quality tree. Or if there is a can’t miss experience not too far outside the city where the price point makes the drive worth it, we’d be willing to do that too. Bonus points for a vendor that starts selling on Thanksgiving weekend.”
Come in at 5pm and get a .50 beer!
Bottom of the Barrel only!”
