2471 18th Street, NW
From a Facebook event Thursday:
“The Old: After a happy year at ESL, the creative team from Addendum is moving right up 18th Street into the basement of Smoke & Barrel. We wish our old partners well.
The New: The move from Dupont to Adams Morgan is a pleasant one for us, as it brings us closer to our community. We’ve got a new name and some cozy new digs, but some things remain the same: no sugar, no citrus; no muss, no fuss; no shakers and no f*ing Tito’s. Jenny (Feldt) leads the charge on cocktails, programming, and hugs, while Lukey (B. Smith) runs the development house, providing the ingredients that keep things fresh in the absence of syrup and citrus.
This will be the first night of our two-month run as a PopUp called Past Perfect. Past Perfect will be taking over “Beneath the Barrel” below Smoke& Barrel and will be open Thursday through Sundays starting at 6pm until last call.“
Thanks to Ben Carver for sharing from DHS:
“Timelapse footage of the Washington DC metro rail system (and a short segment from the AMTRAK area at Union Station). Metro footage was captured in a single day at the Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams-Morgan station and the Chinatown station. This footage is used as b-roll in the DHS video “Securing Surface Transportation”:
Surface transportation such as subway systems can be a unique security challenge due to the large crowds of travelers and the open, unstructured environment. Public safety officials (including mass transit Operators, mass transit police, state and federal law enforcement teams) need a capability to detect potential threat items on persons and in bags without negatively impacting the speed of travel. S&T is developing technology to meet this challenge with the Surface Transportation Explosive Threat Detection Program, helping provide a layered, integrated capability to detect and mitigate the explosive threat at the speed of the traveling public.”

“For the past few weeks, the Busboys and Poets Books Tribe has been busy filling the shelves at Brookland with new energy, a little wit, and a lot of books. Now we’re ready for you to join in on the fun!
Join Busboys and Poets Books this weekend for a grand re-opening of the Brookland bookstore! (more…)

“I saw this guy hungrily eyeing a surprisingly nonchalant squirrel on the lawn of one of the federal buildings on Pennsylvania Ave, NW.”
If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send in an email where you spotted it to [email protected] and I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.
Alright, alright, alright. It’s been a minute – so let’s remedy that. Meet me and some of the folks from Real Living at Home next Wednesday, November 8th from 5:30 – 7:30pm (though I’ll probably stay later) at Homestead (3911 Georgia Avenue, NW.) First 40 folks get a free drink ticket! Hey-o. I’ll also bring some t-shirts as usual. And while it’s not an officially anniversary party – let’s also toast PoPville turning 11 years old this November. And let’s also toast the world still spinning round and round. See you in a week!!
From an email:
“Encounter Church is hosting a Halloween costume drive for neighborhood kids and families next fall. Our goal is 100 costumes for kids of all ages. We will collect, sort, label, and store the costumes until next year when Georgia Avenue Thrive will distribute them. Instead of throwing your costume away or hiding in the back of your closet, donate it now and it will be ready for next year! Drop off Sundays between 8 am and 12 pm at Encounter Church (we meet in Columbia Heights at the GALA Tivoli Theatre, 3333 14th Street NW). You can also e-mail [email protected] to arrange drop off.”
Mobike continued to track and charge me for 12 hours after the bike had been locked following a ten minute ride.
They refunded me but did not respond to my concern about them continuing to track me when the app was not open and the bike not in use.
On a positive note I burned over 7,000 calories!”
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.

“My name is Lucy and I live in NOMA, on H Street to be exact. I’m still getting used to my neighborhood, but am having so much fun so far (I’ve only been here 6 weeks after being adopted from Lucky Dog). I hope to see you on the street, until then, you can follow me on Instagram @lucythewunderdog.”
