PoPville turns 17 years old next month!! Thank you for your continued support!

Dan Silverman, Citizen of the District of Columbia

17 years is a lot of walkabouts, a lot of photos, a lot of messages, a lot of ups and downs and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. 17 years is such a crazy number to write. 17 years. 17 years of openings and closings and everything in between. A lot has happened in that time. I remember most of it. If you’re overwhelmed by some of the current coverage here or on social media, as I know I am at times, just know – it’s always up and down and, hopefully, ultimately up.

As I do every year I just want to thank you, the readers for making this all possible. I do not take you for granted. And I know that I could not share so much news/info without your tips, emails, photos etc. So truly, thank you, thank you, thank you – and keep them coming! [[email protected] or @PoPville on social media.]

And if you are in place to contribute to our long term survival please consider joining our Patreon. Whether you are able to give $2 or $20 a month it all helps. And you’ll get a bonus PoPville Plus + post every Wednesday.

If you’d rather buy me a “beer or coffee” that would be much appreciated too and you can do so here.

Thanks for considering and thanks to all who have supported us over the years.

Another good way to help out is to sign up for our free daily newsletter so you never miss a post. Oh yeah and if you want to pick up a shirt or other merch you can do so here.

This year I’m going to tip back a few beers at my beloved Looking Glass Lounge (3634 Georgia Ave, NW) remembering where it all started. So if you’re around Thursday November 2nd, come join me for a beer or three. I’ll be there from around 6-10pm and will post a reminder as we get closer to the date. Cheers!

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
