Final Comment From Owner of Three Fifty Bakery Regarding No Pets on the Patio Sign


“Dear PoPville,

I’ve been reading all of the comments on your post regarding our ‘No Pets’ sign. I’ve tried to comment and let people know why this happened. Many people have basically called me a liar and ‘shady’ for blaming DC Code and say that DC allows pets on patios.

The facts: A customer took a picture of a dog on our patio and I assume turned us in. A person from the DOH paid us a visit and was very nice about it, but informed me that it was against health code. He had run out of signs, so he emailed them to me. I felt the signs were very harsh and unfriendly [see example above], so I made my own. Now that there is so much chatter and negative comments towards me and the bakery, I wanted to send the signs to you and thought maybe you could update your post with the sign….just so people know that it wasn’t just me. I’m very dog friendly and want to have them on the patio, but I don’t want to be shut down for Health Code violations.

I hope everyone can understand that I had no choice in this matter….unless I risk being fined or closed.

Jimmy Hopper
