From an email:
“Over the past three years, Whiskey Ginger has sought to bring great style to the U Street Corridor. Along the way, we’ve met a group of amazing customers, many of which are now considered dear friends. Unfortunately, the lease for the U Street location is about to end, and after a great deal of thought and careful consideration, we’ve made the emotional decision to close the shop as of April 22, 2018. The good news is, there’s still time to come see us! And, even after the U Street location closes, we will continue to serve our customers online through eCommerce channels.
As a way of saying THANK YOU for a great three years, we’re offering our loyal fans:
All Remaining Inventory
So please come and say hello before we close our doors! Quantities and sizes may be limited, but we have lots of great style we still want to share with you!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. While we bid a remorseful temporary adieu, we’re excited for the future and the next chapter. We promise to share it with you as it unfolds.”
Someone recently put up a very tacky substance (glue?) along the top of a shared backyard fence to essentially make it a giant glue trap for birds and small animals. This glue trap has claimed its first victim this morning, a small white-breasted nuthatch. We rescued the injured bird and contacted City Wildlife, which now has the bird in its care. It seems nothing can be done to force the tenant to remove the glue. The condo association said this is not illegal or against the condo rules, and Animal Control said there needs to be an intent to harm in order to charge the tenant with animal cruelty or force them to take down the glue. Obviously, more birds and small animals will get trapped in this tacky substance and suffer painful injuries and a horrible death. I am completely distraught about this and feel helpless. This is on Hawthorne Court NE.”

So celebrate tonight at Nanny’s with a DC Brau Tap Takeover!!
“In honor of our 25th anniversary on Sunday we will be kicking off the weekend with an awesome tap takeover from DC Brau on Friday the 13th. Starting at 6pm we will be tapping the DC Brau Pills, El Hefe Speaks, Penn Quarter Porter, And the Corruption.”
I’ve spent many an hour drinking the one whilst in the other. Congrats to both of these institutions!
Ed. Note: DC Brau will have a proper celebration of their own at Rock and Roll Hotel on April 21st. Details on that one here.
If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share for the regular fix 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.
Lucky and Dusty:
Las dos Amigas, Lucky and Dusty, traveled to DC from Puerto Rico with their buddy Ned. While they are all great friends, Lucky and Dusty really like each other a lot and would love to find a home together!
Dusty is super curious, friendly, and silly. She likes to reach out with her paw and tap you when she wants to be pet. Lucky is an ultra-glam super meowdel who gives you lots of opportunities to notice how pretty she is! She’s gorgeous and she knows it! She likes to hang out around humans, play, and cuddle. They’re an awesome pair.
Hi my name is Sandy! I’m looking for a calm loving home to call my own. In between naps, I enjoy following you around the house and yard, keeping you company as a faithful companion. I am friendly, confident and active with a happy-go-lucky spirit. I am looking for an all adults home with a dog savvy owner that will understand that I need some time to acclimate to new surroundings with new people before you shower me with much attention. I also would like to be the only dog in the home. A home with a fenced yard would be perfect for me but the fence needs to be secure because I’ve been known to find my way out. If you are looking for a companion and have a quiet home please come to an adoption event and give me a look-see!! Learn more about me here.
