“Dear PoPville,

Over MLK Weekend, I was sitting in the atrium of the National Portrait Gallery and met a curly, dark-haired woman and we chatted for a minute or two. The polite and curious child with you, L., told me all about the Evel Knievel motorcycle at the Air and Space museum after seeing a sticker on my laptop. You needlessly apologized for him and quipped about how people in Pittsburgh are nicer than in DC (ha!). After NPG, you were heading to the MLK Public Library. If you see this, would you like to stroll through a museum or gallery with me?”

“Tuesday evening post Caps game on the metro at Gallery Place to Columbia Heights.

We exchanged casual glances like blue line passes but I didn’t say anything because I tend to not approach women on the metro. She had curly blonde hair and a cool Caps windbreaker. I was in a green sweatshirt and was carrying a yoga mat. Would love to catch a game sometime.”

Ed. Note: If this is you, please email [email protected] so I can put you in touch with OP. PoPville is not affiliated with either party, please proceed with any potential connection at your own risk using caution as you would any online encounter. For those curious about past missed connections, many have been made and when possible I’ll try to update when/if more are made.

The Potomac Roasting Company is stocked with excellent coffee to meet almost any palate. But that’s not the only good news. We now offer free shipping for orders over $35.

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality beans sourced from small farms in Latin America and Africa that are owned and operated by women. We will make sure that your coffee is roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

Our newest coffee comes from Mbozi, Tanzania. We secured a shipment just before this small batch of delicious beans sold out. In Swahili, Usawa means balance and Kahawa means coffee. The beans are grown on small farms that are part of a cooperative promoting gender equity and market access for women. This is a smooth and balanced coffee that is sure to please.

We also received coffee shipments that were delayed following the tragic collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. That includes the most recent harvest of La Morena coffee beans from Huehuetenango, Guatemala. We have plenty in stock, so that you can stock up! Rounding out our specialty coffee choices are fresh roasts from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia and Peru.

Now, our last show may or may not have mentioned Taylor Swift, and we may have gotten into some trouble from confused Swifties who thought they scored a $15 ticket to a Taylor Swift concert. So, to apologize and clear up any confusion, we’ve decided to dedicate another show to her. We promise she might or might not appear this time.
