810 Upshur Street, NW

Bummer – thanks to all who sent word that Bentley’s has closed. It was a big deal when they opened up on Upshur Street back in 2008.

“Bentley’s Vintage Furniture & Collectibles 810 Upshur Street NW in Petworth, has closed effective January 1, 2018.”

Next door neighbor Philip’s Shoe Repair closed after 51 years back in November.

From a press release:

“On January 20, 2018, women and allies will once again take to the streets of the nation’s capital to make a powerful statement to the current administration and the rest of the world. In a follow-up to the largest demonstration in U.S. history, people from across the country will meet at the Reflecting Pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial at 11a.m. where March Forward Virginia will host a rally followed by a march on the White House.

March To The Polls, the Anniversary to the 2017 Women’s March, exists to advance peaceful and positive progress in communities across the country, with the goal of ensuring all women and their allies persist in civic and political roles moving into 2018. (more…)

The following was written by PoPville contributor David McAuley, founder of Short Articles about Long Meetings.

“We are trying to grow the universe of child care,” a DC education official told Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) 6E/Shaw at its regularly-scheduled meeting on January 2.

Toward that end, DC’s Office of Planning (OP) is initiating a change in zoning regulations which will remove it from the business of regulating child-care facilities, in the hope of streamlining the process for people who want to get into the business. The proposed change would leave the supervision of child-care establishments largely in the hands of the Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE). Eva Laguerre, Director of the License and Compliance Unit of OSSE’s Division of Early Learning, urged the ANC to write a letter in support of the change. She also urged members of the community to come out and testify in support of the measure at an upcoming hearing. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

Was out Saturday morning in DuPont and was stopped at a red light when I saw someone trying to carefully balance a paper shopping bag full of trash on top of an already overflowing trash can. When that proved impossible, the person put it on the sidewalk next to the trash can and walked away.

I thought that was odd, then I noticed that every trash can I drove by in Dupont was overflowing with what looks like trash bags filled with household trash. Is this a thing? Is this due to the cold or do people always do this? Have I been a sucker all these years dragging my trash can and recyclables to the curb every week? So. Many. Questions.

But seriously, do people really put their household trash in public trash cans?”
