“Just wanted to alert neighbors around the 200 block of Upshur St NW (near Slash Run) that last night our home had an attempted break-in. Nothing was taken but pitch furniture was moved and our front window screen was ripped from the base.”

From an email:
“This weekend we’re opening up our new “Republic Kolache @ Reliable Tavern” to the public. We’re bringing our classic combo of savory & sweet kolaches and coffee, plus squeezed-to-order juices and fresh licuados (Mexican-style smoothies) into the Reliable Tavern space [3655 Georgia Ave, NW] each Sat & Sun morning, 9a-noon.
(For the uninitiated, kolache = Czech pastry with a cult following in Texas, consisting of a light slightly-sweet dough filled with savory or sweet ingredients)
We’ll have classic Texas tunes on the jukebox, and look forward to meeting our neighbors up in Petworth/Park View!”
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. AdoPtville is run by two volunteers who compile these pets weekly from local shelters.
“Ok, so my name is Diva but I only partially live up to my name. Sure, I’m beautiful and glamorous. Just look at my pretty calico coat! I also like being a part of whatever is going on and hanging out with foster mom when she’s home. But I’m also sweet, adventurous, and affectionate. There’s many sides to this Diva let me tell you! I came to HRA when my former owner could no longer take care of me. Now I’m not only looking for my forever home, but also my forever lap to spend my sunset years on. I have been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism but I’m great about taking my pill twice a day. In fact, it’s my favorite time of the day because that’s when I get treats! I’m also in the early phases of chronic kidney disease but don’t think for a minute that stops me from anything. I really hope you’ll contact my foster mom at [email protected] to set up a time to meet me.
****As an added bonus, if you’re over the age of 50, my adoption fee is waived as part of our Boomer’s Buddies program! ****
Oh and don’t forget to see more of my glamour shots on Instagram by searching #laplovingdiva. I’m making a special appearance this Sunday at the Logan 14 Aveda Spa & Salon from 12PM – 3PM, 1314 14th St NW, Washington DC so come see me there!”
“M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E, Mickey Mouse! Hey! I’m Mickey, although I’ve been told I more like Goofy. I’m a happy-go-lucky kind of guy, and my favorite thing to do is walk around, meet new people, and roll my way into their hearts (and laps).
I’ve got a pretty energetic play style, and I get along really well with dogs who can match that, but I can be a little too much for others. What can I say? I’ve got a zest for life and try to do everything to the fullest, whether its playing hard or snuggling up with my humans. If I sound like the right pup for you, please come to the Humane Rescue Alliance and meet me! I can’t wait to see you!”
“HRA’s Walk for the Animals
You can also support the Humane Rescue Alliance this weekend by attending their annual Walk for the Animals! The event is this Saturday, Sept. 30th from 11-5 at Yards Park. You can find more info here.”

I’m wondering if you might be able to help me right a wrong in my neighborhood that has proven difficult to address. We park on the street in Lanier heights, which is nestled between Adams Morgan, Columbia Heights and mount Pleasant. It can be a pain depending on when you are looking for a spot. (As an illustration: a couple weeks ago my wife had a spot stolen from her by some guy who then verbally berated her for being angry that he had stolen the spot she waited 10 minutes for. It took her 20 mins to find another spot)
There is a large parking spot outside of an apartment building called the Chalfonte. The spot in question is on the south side of Harvard where it intersects with Argonne Place, and is big enough to fit a small car and a smart car, a REALLY big car, or a big-ish car like a Jeep SUV and a motorcycle.
The issue is that I’ve noticed over the last few weeks that it is ALWAYS the same black jeep and the same motorcycle parked there. (more…)
