“Dear PoPville,

I am supposed to be traveling very soon and yesterday started experiencing muscle soreness and other potential COVID symptoms. I want to get a test but there are so many reports of tests taking 2-3 weeks!!

I haven’t knowingly been exposed, but I want to keep my family, other people on the planes, etc safe and of course don’t want to travel if I am sick. I would just cancel, but it’s not a vacation/leisure trip. I really have to go unless I’m sure I have COVID.

What are people’s latest experiences with firehouse testing turn around times? Read More

“Dear PoPville,

While I don’t blame parents for looking for help in this tough time & there are plenty of postings that are giving fair offers and fair expectations, I feel like folks out there posting ridiculous ads like this one need to be called out.

A family looking for an experienced ECE teacher WITH an eduation degree for $24/hour in the middle of the day to give 2 children personalized instruction (and in the future, watch an infant child) is both insulting and a total disregard of a teacher’s worth. Read More

“Dear PoPville,

You let me pet your Great Dane, Dapple, for a solid 10 minutes at 18th & Mass Ave NW this past Tuesday. I spent about 6 of those minutes trying to work up the courage to ask for your number but obviously failed so now making an attempt at a second chance using the more cowardly/courageous (really not sure which, anyone care to weigh in using the comments section? thanks!) route of the internet. Hope this works!”

If this is you, please email [email protected] so I can put you in touch.

“Dear PoPville,

We’ve sadly seen Sichuan Pavilion- our favorite Sichuan restaurant around hands down- has not reopened yet, even for takeout- we call pretty much every week (desperate!) and get a message that they are still closed. Has anyone heard anything about this wonderful spot? Hoping they are OK, but this extended shutdown has us worried.” Read More
