From an email:
“Long story short, a developer is threatening to block our only means of egress from the back of our building. Timber does not have access to the alley, so all deliveries, trash, and most importantly our fire escape all come from the back and then use this side sidewalk. The developer was not interested in coming up with an amicable solution, and instead told us to build a stairway over the top of the building.
This sidewalk has been there for decades and has always been used as a means of egress. I was hoping someone might have some good insight on how to stop this, so we can continue to operate safely and effectively!”

Petworth and DC at large, we need your help! A developer is threatening to block our access to the back of Timber by blocking off the walkway that goes to the back. If you don’t know, we do not have access to the alley. We bring the trash out through this side , bring our deliveries through the back, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY USE THIS AS A FIRE EXIT! When we told the developer this, he flippantly told us to build stairs over the building…We honestly don’t know how this is legal! If anybody has any insight or knows a way we can fight this, please each out at [email protected]. We need your help!!!

Come solve a crime that took place in Takoma Park 130 years ago!
HouseMouse Books and Vintage is excited to announce the debut of Escape the Bookshop II, our new limited-run escape room experience. Escape the Bookshop II is a unique group puzzle game that is based on a real crime that took place in Takoma Park around 130 years ago. It is designed and created by HouseMouse to be played in our atmospheric little bookshop. This is not your typical corporate escape room and makes for a memorable evening out with friends or family!
Bookings are now open for game dates in January through April 2024. The game generally takes place Wednesday through Saturday at 8 PM but special arrangements can be made upon request. It is designed to be played by a group of 3 to 6 people (ages 16+) and lasts for one hour. No prior escape room experience is needed to enjoy the game.
Join us at Spirits & Spice DC Store as we embark on a spirited journey with the co-owner of the Mount Pleasant Club Whiskey.
Brace yourselves for an unforgettable whiskey-tasting experience where we’ll not only indulge in the smoothness of
