11 a.m.-4 p.m. (BOTH DAYS)

Celebrate the arrival of spring at the National Postal Museum’s Garden Party!

The festival will occur on Saturday, April 7 and Sunday, April 8 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.. Activity stations spread throughout the museum are designed to encourage awareness of and appreciation for the natural beauty all around you. Special guests from Smithsonian Gardens, Smithsonian Libraries and several local garden clubs will be on hand to share their love and knowledge of the greater Washington area’s native flowers, trees and plants. Activities include but are not limited to:

Gardening Workshop

Participate in a Gardening Workshop with local experts. These aficionados will teach you about ecosystem-friendly planting by sharing information about the flora best suited for the region and which invasive species to avoid. They will also answer any questions you may have and share tips to cultivate your own green thumb!

Make a Stamp “Bouquet”

Experience the joy of stamp collecting by hand-selecting your favorites from an ample buffet of vintage postage stamps. Make a floral-themed stamp collection and take home your beautiful stamp “bouquet.”

Learn the Language of Flowers

In the Victorian era, the “Language of Flowers” was a popular way to communicate emotions. What did it mean if you received a purple violet from someone? What about a yellow carnation? Learn the particular significance of specific flowers and colors, and practice this unique tradition of expression with specially-made postcards that you can mail right from the museum! (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I’m starting a new business in DC and I’m in need of some help with the process. I’ve registered the business as an LLC and I have received my IRS EIN number, however, when when I attempt to register with the DC tax office, the options they provide online don’t match the description of the business. Even with all of the tips provided online, it seems like the process is intentionally complicated and tricky and not made for the weary. I’d love some assistance and/or advice for anyone that’s gone through the process of registering with DC and obtaining the necessary business licenses to legally do business. I even contacted the small business office to set up a meeting to go in and get some help but their availability was limited. If it helps, my business is selling re-purposed and redesigned items for home decor, dining, and kitchen. I’d also love any recommendations anyone has for tax attorneys and certified accountants who have experience working with small businesses.”

Thanks to Truxton Circle, DC for passing on the 7DrumCity’s Instagram post:

Big news: 7DC has signed a 15-year lease for the building directly next door to us at 1508 North Cap!! MAIN PLAN: 1 – 3-4 more rehearsal rooms in the basement 2 – open floor plan for events on the 1st floor (read: small venue; we will use pop-up shops to start, then pursue more legit licenses) 3 – more lesson rooms upstairs. 4 – We got the place a little earlier than planned since it became available earlier and we had to jump on it… So, we will be subletting specific rooms as we grow into it. If your business is interested in an upstairs room, let me know! 5 – We will take the fence down and combine the yards too. The plan is to be ready by September/October. Thank you to everyone who made it possible to get this far!! Can't wait to see how it all unfolds and how the next chapter of the DC music scene writes itself through this space. I will be giving a couple tours upon request tonight at the April Fools Potluck Jam 6-10pm. We will be gutting the entire interior starting Wednesday this week. Happy Easter, and hope you can stop by! Much Love, Miles
