“The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-powered charity that funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.”
Please help us in this fight. And if anyone donates $50 or more – I’ll throw in a PoPville sweatshirt (above) I have one small, one medium, one large and one XL so those’ll be on a first come first served basis. To everyone else, please give what you can because our team, Boundary Stone, has a huge fundraising goal this year and I got off to a late start so I’m way behind. You can make your donation here. The shaving event is March 10th at Boundary Stone which is always fun so please consider coming out for that and lifting a pint or two for a good cause. Thank you!
From a press release:
“Drink Company’s third annual Cherry Blossom Pop-Up Bar (PUB) will open Thursday, February 28 with over-the-top décor inspired by the Fontaine de L’Encelade at the Palace de Versailles in France. The French fairytale garden will feature wooden trellises covered in abundant flowers including peonies, roses, and Japanese cherry blossoms.
Cocktails at Cherry Blossom PUB draw inspiration from Japanese ingredients, including the Honeydew, Honey See (above), which explores the flavors of rice using sake, Americano vermouth, shio koji (spent fermented sake grains made into a tea, then a syrup), cucumber, honeydew, and absinthe; and the Once and Floral (below), a riff on a gin sour made with Bluecoat Gin, peach, matcha, lemon, orange flower water, and egg white.
The layered, multi-room concept will also feature a ramen room in partnership with Hiro Mitsui, the chef behind the cult-favorite Union Market food stall Ramen by UZU. (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.
Tracer is a big, sweet, senior orange and white tabby who loves greeting you at the door when you come home and sleeping with you at night (even if you have a loft bed). Throughout the day she’s pretty independent but likes to check-in periodically and be in the same room where the action is happening. She’s very affectionate and at just 10 years young, enjoys playing with string and other household items (no need for fancy cat toys!)
She settles into new situations quickly and would be great addition to any home. To learn more about Tracer, visit the Humane Rescue Alliance’s website or contact Tracer’s foster family at [email protected]
Hi! I’m Debo and I’m a sweet, friendly, and cuddly 7 year old looking for a good forever home!
When I first meet someone I can be a little shy but I love people and other doggie friends. Nothing makes me happier than taking a long walk or cuddling up on a couch next to my humans and taking a nap. I am a mature doggie so I’m a super calm and gentle friend and I mind my manners both at home and when out on walks. I’m low-maintenance, I love car rides, and I’m house trained.
Fun fact: I’m infatuated with lights and reflections. I like to look at myself in the mirror or stare at lights as they turn off and on. It’s just a little quirk of mine that provides entertainment for my foster mamas. If you’d like to meet me, please visit the Humane Rescue Alliance’s website or contact [email protected] or [email protected]

“The buildings at 1714-1716 14th street, next to Flowers on 14th and Peregrine Coffee has a building permit for retail in cellar and first floor, offices on second and third floor and adding two more floors for eight unit apartment building on floors 4 and 5.“
My building received this email from management last night. Two thoughts:
Why is breed discrimination still allowed? Aren’t irresponsible owners the real problem?
How does the management company even know this dog is a pit bull? Who is paying for the genetic testing? Or is this a “pit bull until proven innocent” situation?
Also, who narcs on their neighbor’s puppy….”
