OK so Cidery? Check. Brick Oven Pizza? Check. Revamped Jackie Lee’s Lounge? Check. Next up for Kennedy Street? Finally some info on The Library that a lot of folks have been asking about! From an email:

“A neighborhood restaurant and bar where you can browse our Persian American menu featuring kabobs, meet your community, explore new drinks, play a game or read a book.

The Library plans to be open the week of June 26th and they are currently looking for front of house staff. They can contact Meredith at [email protected]

Stay tuned for updates. In the meantime a little taste:

From Councilmember David Grosso:

“Councilmember Grosso in April sent a letter to the District Department of Transportation supporting the idea of painting crosswalks on 17th Street, NW rainbow to commemorate the important place of the LGBTQ community in the District of Columbia and to further celebrate D.C.’s welcoming and inclusive values. The idea originated with ANC Commissioner Randy Downs (2B05).

Yesterday, Councilmember Grosso received a response from DDOT.  Although the painting cannot be made permanent, he is excited to hear that temporary rainbow crosswalks will be painted in time for the Capital Pride Parade. (more…)

Thanks to Andy for sending: “what’s up with “Flip It LJ Diner” now with signage up on Park Road near Pho 14?”

This might be set a new record for “long time coming”! Back in August 2013 we first posted about Flip It coming to this space. In December 2014 they looked close to opening. Then crickets. Finally some new signage and Dear God please be a proper Diner. STAY TUNED.

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.
