I’ve been in the DC area for two years, and really struggling to transition out of my current job. I believe myself to be talented, well educated (have a Masters), and I’m ambitious/enthusiastic, but my current job search has gotten me nowhere. Does anyone have advice that has proven fruitful in the past, or recommendations for networking events? Really looking for just about any guidance here. Thanks much!”

“Quara Ethiopian Restaurant is named for the ancient civilization where the modern-day country of Ethiopia is situated – and for the city of Quara, Ethiopia. True to our roots, we prepares traditional recipes from our homeland. Your food is served by first- and-second generation Ethiopians in Washington. Our culture is represented throughout by posters, paintings and music from Africa.
And our menu features many traditional Ethiopian favorites, including Kitfo, a raw beef dish that one that many Westerners are reluctant to try, but then find quite enjoyable!”

“After an extended summer stay in Takoma Park, Duende District Bookstore is headed NE this September, with its next stop at A Creative DC: Brookland on the Arts Walk at Monroe Street Market.
The pop-up will run from Sept. 8-17 and will offer an expanded selection of general adult and children titles by authors/illustrators of color. A Creative DC: Brookland is located just off the Brookland/CUA Metro stop at 716 Monroe Street NE, Studio #8, across from the Arts Walk tower sign. (more…)
Three (maybe four) large SUVs parked IN A BUS ZONE on Wednesday night in Dupont, on Connecticut Ave, right in front of the long line for a popular club (I’m pretty sure it was Decades.)
The bus driver said this happens every night. None of the cars had tickets. I think they should have like 15 tickets, and be towed. (more…)
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.

“Wanted to share our new furry family member, who is already an avid fan of the Afternoon Animal Fix! This is Hugo, he is a 7 month old Pembroke Welsh Corgi living on H street NE. He also has an Instagram, since apparently that is a thing dogs do these days: @hugobigears”
