This song has shaped the blog more than other besides possibly 99 Luftballons or possibly Safety Dance, but anyway enjoy:

Got back from happy hour with a friend at Thai Chef on Connecticut Avenue in Dupont. We were pretty hungry when we first got there, so we ordered way too much sushi. At the end of the meal, we asked for a doggy bag but were refused. “Oh, we can’t during happy hour.” We were flabbergasted. Is that legal?! Has anyone heard of other restaurants doing this? My friend ended up wrapping the rest of the sushi in napkins from her purse, and we left after paying, a sour taste in our mouths.”
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.

Looking for a bar (where we can guarantee a reasonable bar tab) or an event space (like a party hall where we can bring in booze/food) for a birthday party. A place that would hold up to 75 people, where we can set up a DJ/Karaoke, put up some decorations, and just have a good time. Do people have suggestions on bars or event venues that won’t break the bank in DC?”
