13 years!!?!! My goodness time seriously does fly. Remember the 3 year anniversary party at Wonderland? That was legendary but this one is fixing to be pretty sweet too. It’s gonna be upstairs at Moreland’s Tavern (14th/Kennedy and Colorado Ave, NW) from 6:30pm-10:30pm and perhaps a bit longer if I’m recovered from World Series watching. We’re even kicking a DJ this year – my man Eric will be spinning a pretty solid rotation of the Beastie Boys and 99 Luftballoons. In other words – it’s gonna be lit.
It’s been a hell of a ride my friends. Lots of ups and downs and highs and lows and fear and fun and love and learning. In other words – life. And I just want to take the opportunity to thank all of you for continuing to make it possible. Whether you are a reader, a commenter, a lurker or just follow us on social media – you are part of the PoPville community – hell – you are PoPville and I couldn’t do this without you.
For those who have been kind enough to support us financially – I can’t tell you how much it means to me. When I struck out on my own over 10 years ago (worked two jobs the first three years) – I had no idea if this was going to be viable. I had no business plan or anything like that – I just had the passion to cover our neighborhoods in a new way. Leaving my full time job I would have no benefits – no sick leave – no vacation – no nothing. Just faith that it would work. And against all odds it has. But it’s not just faith that makes it possible. By becoming a patreon you help ensure that this site will keep going for at least the next 17 years.
We are a huge local community. If a tiny percentage of those who are able can give even just $2 a month – it can make a world of difference. If you enjoy our posts, our rants and raves, our tweets, our takes, our sweet city rides, our scuttlebutt, our hawks and of course Earl the white whale, our advice, our multi modal corgis, our breaking news, our community – please do consider becoming a supporter. Thank you. For those who are not able – I truly understand and it is OK. We will make it work.
Now we celebrate 13 years – let’s get ready to party – Thursday, November 7th – Moreland’s Tavern – it is on!!!

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality specialty beans sourced from small farms in Latin America that are owned and operated by women. Your coffee will be roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.
As two former Peace Corps volunteers who served in Guatemala, we founded Potomac Roasting to pursue our passion for great coffee and purpose-driven work. In addition to ethically sourcing our beans, we also donate a portion of our profits to Laila’s Legacy Animal Rescue, a DC-based nonprofit that finds homes for homeless dogs and cats.
Our current roasts come from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Peru. We will be adding new roasts soon. If you are local, there’s a good chance we can deliver to your door. Look for us at local farmers’ markets beginning this spring. In the meantime, check us out now for better coffee and good karma in a cup. You can use the code Community and save 10%.
