Whoa. Thanks to Julia (and others) for sending. Julia saw these signs posted around 7:30pm Friday night: “Wubalubadub pub pop-up in Shaw shut down for an emergency.”

Drink Company Facebook says:

“Wubba Lubba Dub PUB was designed by fans for fans, though we think everyone would have enjoyed it. It was a labor of love and included hand sewn Meeseeks from our CEO Angie’s mother; graffiti work by an incredible artist; a 25-foot Ruben cut out by our Special Projects Director, hockey-referee-turned-craftsman Matt Fox; and deep references to a show that has made us all laugh out loud and confront the deeper meaning behind the gags. In a word, we are fans geeking out.

Turner Broadcasting/Cartoon Network wasn’t willing to let us do that and demanded we shut down. We then reached an agreement, and thus delayed for a week, but they changed their minds, threatened us with exorbitant fees and then took everything off the table today and refused to talk any further.

Taqueria Habanero not sitting by quietly while Mezcalero expands. The Taqueria Habanero vs Mezcalero wars rage on. Thanks to Elle for sending the photo above announcing a new location coming to 8147 Baltimore Ave in College Park. For those not familiar with Taqueria Habanero, I pity you. Also:

“Here, we strive to provide you with the exact ingredients used from the streets of Puebla, Mexico. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

My fiancé and I are getting married on 10/27 at Carnegie Institue and we are having a hell of a time finding a day of coordinator for our wedding. We are super organized and have most everything already panned out, we are just needing someone to help keep things running smooth the day of. Any recommendations?”

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.

Merhaba! We are pleased to introduce you to world-traveler, Ankara! Ankara used to live on the streets of Istanbul before she was scooped up by a dedicated local rescuer.  After reading a few guide books and studying English, she decided to get a passport, pack her bags, and catch a flight to America!  

While it took Ankara a few days to get over jet-lag and culture shock, she is now happy as a clam and looking for her forever home.  She is super sweet, ultra cuddly, incredibly goofy, and has an adorable little meow that sounds like a chirping bird.  She loooooooves to snuggle, goes bonkers for catnip, and is full of adventure and curiosity.

Ankara will happily entertain herself with toy mice and feathers, but she absolutely adores humans and will take just about any opportunity she can to cuddle up close and purr gently while you stroke her tummy.  She is a total goofball and will make you laugh a dozen times a day as she explores her surroundings and makes herself at home.  To learn more about Ankara, email [email protected]

Emma Faith is a tenacious little terrier mix with a LOT of personality!  Her foster mom says she’s a love bug who likes to be in the middle of all the action in her foster home.  She was rescued in July 2018 along with 80+ other dogs and cats from a hoarding situation in Mississippi.  Despite that, she’s confident, curious, and affectionate.  She’s recovering from hair loss due to a flea allergy she suffered from in her previous home, but her fur has already started growing back, and we expect she’ll have a full coat by Halloween! To learn more about Miss Emma Faith, please email [email protected]

“Dear PoPville,

It strikes me as peculiar that this new apartment building called AdMo Heights describes itself as DISTINCTLY DC and uses a stock photo of New York City.

Link to stock photo.

You can clearly see that the street signs say Central Park West and West 65th Street.”

Ed. Note: Not to mention the fairly distinct NYC yellow taxi cabs.
