Ed. Note: Don’t let a little construction out front dissuade you and head straight to Nanny’s (3319 Connecticut Avenue, NW) next Friday!! (or your closest Irish or Irish-ish pub!)

“Dear PoPville,

Are there any St. Patrick’s Day celebrations hosted in DC? I am assuming the pubs will have music, but are there any organized events? Which weekend will they occur on, since St. Paddy’s is on a Friday this year.”

From the The St. Patrick’s Parade Committee:

“We look forward to gathering and celebrating with all of you on March 12th!

The St. Patrick’s Parade Committee of Washington, D.C. plans on gathering on the National Mall and marching to F St NW, followed by an afternoon of festivities. The Committee, along with other groups, dance schools, bands, etc. will start assembling at 11:00 AM at the Peace Monument and at 12:00 PM, walking towards the Holodomor Memorial (map attached below.)

Everyone is welcome! We hope that you can join us throughout the afternoon, whether at the March or at a gathering throughout the afternoon supporting the bars, restaurants, and partners celebrating Irish Culture in the community.

We will be gathering near the Peace Monument by 11:30 AM (intersection of Pennsylvania Ave NW and 1 St NW.) Parking is available near the Monument, F St NW, or 5th St NW. This march will be limited to walking, dancing, etc. No floats, cars, or motorized vehicles will be allowed at this time. If you have questions regarding logistics, or what you can or cannot bring, please reach out to the chair at [email protected].

From 12:00 PM onward, live music and Irish dancing will take place throughout the afternoon at Kelly’s Irish Times and the Irish Channel. Starting at 3:30 PM, join the St. Patrick’s Parade Committee at the Irish Channel where we will be helping to raise funds for The Belfast-Beltway Boxing Project. All proceeds from the Parade Committee donations/ sales that afternoon will be donated directly to The Belfast Boxing Project. Live music that afternoon will be featuring Bob Sullivan and Irish Dancing will be featuring the Culkin School of Traditional Irish Dance. Additionally, the annual wreath-laying ceremony at the Police Memorial will take place later in the afternoon, with announcements being made at all venues regarding timing.”

To celebrate Karen’s promotion, we caught up with her to learn more about her time at Well-Paid Maids, the area’s only certified living-wage cleaning company.

 1. Why Well-Paid Maids?

Karen: I saw the company was paying a living wage and had great benefits. Also, they were very flexible with my schedule, especially since I have kids.

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.
