Almost forgot about this:
“The BBQ Bus Smokehouse will feature the well-loved smoky sandwiches and picnic plates served from the food truck since 2011 plus original additions created in honor of the surrounding Brightwood community, including a new Georgia Avenue Gold slow-smoked pulled pork sandwich.
Other dishes include soy and brown sugar brined chicken wings, baby back ribs, Angus brisket, choriozo mac and cheese, and bacon mashed potatoes.”
Stay tuned for an exact opening date.
If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share 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. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 2 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.

Looks like the Andresification of Penn Quarter continues full steam ahead with PEPE Spanish Sandwiches. A reader reports the sign is “facing the Navy Memorial, in the building that 701 restaurant is in, where the native foods place was.”
Ed. Note: We judged Andres’ PEPE Food Truck here. Updates if it’s also becoming a brick and mortar. Stay tuned.
