“Dear PoPville,

Tenants recently moved out of my house in DC. I inspected the property two days after they moved out, and everything seemed in order. Because they had just bought a house, I wanted to be nice to them and return their deposit asap, which I did right after the inspection. Three days later, I moved back into the house and discovered the washing machine gasket was covered in mold and hair. I know to expect some mold in the gasket, but this went beyond normal wear and tear. Three days of trying everything (Concorbium, bleach, baking soda paste, etc…) has done nothing to remove the smell or the mold stains. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I just moved into a new house in parkview and one neighbor always rents a car to go smart car and just leaves it in the alley way blocking access to my garage. I have put notes on the car and still nothing. Don’t want to be an a-hole but it’s getting to be annoying. Any advice? Thanks!”

“Dear PoPville,

I’m hosting a co-ed baby shower for about 30 people at my home in Petworth in August, and we are looking for a reasonably priced caterer for the party. We’re looking for something nicer than Whole Foods sandwich trays but not as fancy as a full-blown catered meal with chef on site, servers, etc.

We’d ideally like someone to prepare the food items and drop them off on the day-of the event. I’d love to know if anyone in the PoPville community has any recommendations.”

“Dear PoPville,

This morning, a DC trash truck backed into our retaining wall while trying to make a sharp turn on our street on Quebec Place NW up in Columbia Heights/Petworth. They caused pretty serious damage as you can see from the pictures. The police came and we filed a report with the Dept of Public Works and the WPD but it seems cumbersome and the claim process seems like it’ll be dragged out for weeks/months. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I’m looking for a recommendation for a driving instructor / driving school with their own cars. I am an adult (like, an old) but having lived in cities my whole life, have never owned a car, and I haven’t driven regularly in about a decade. I do need to do some driving coming up in the fall and was hoping to do some refresher lessons with a professional instructor. (more…)
