8455 Fenton Street via El Sapo

Well this sounds pretty great:

“I’m so happy to introduce EL SAPO, Cuban Social Club – a hip, festive, forward-thinking Cuban restaurant, and the first of its kind in the D.C. metro area. It’s been a long dream of mine to represent and promote my culture through my craft, and here it is. Bright,open, and brimming with energy, EL SAPO’s whole storefront lifts to let the breeze in. The fresh mojitos, upbeat music and bold island food really do require “no filter”. Our menu is rooted in tradition and unmistakably Cuban; full of intense flavors, colors and aromas. About half of the dishes are what I ate growing up at home or on the streets of La Habana, while the other half tell the story of my journey as a cook. (more…)

Taqueria Habanero not sitting by quietly while Mezcalero expands. The Taqueria Habanero vs Mezcalero wars rage on. Thanks to Elle for sending the photo above announcing a new location coming to 8147 Baltimore Ave in College Park. For those not familiar with Taqueria Habanero, I pity you. Also:

“Dear PoPville,

My husband and I are looking to buy our first home and are interested in buying in Hyattsville (in fact we’re putting an offer on a house this week) because of the proximity to the District and the affordability. We both work downtown and have lived in the District for 10 years, and admittedly, we aren’t that familiar with Hyattsville’s culture. We’d love to hear from anyone who lives there or has anything to say about the quality of life there.”

Ed. Note: Read about a bike trip to Franklin’s in Hyattsville here and see a recent Good Deal or Not? in Hyattsville here.

Ed. Note two/too: I have very good friends who live in Hyattsville and I absolutely love it there. In fact I plan on expanding PoPville’s coverage to Hyattsville because I love the vibe there so much.

I’m curious how many from PoPville have been:

From Montgomery County Fair & Agriculture:

“CALL TO ACTION!
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Oppose Bill 23-17
Defend the Montgomery County Fair & Agriculture in Montgomery County Maryland.
Bill 23-17 concerning Animal Control – Performance Animal Violations, is being proposed by the Humane Society of the United States to the Montgomery County Council. The Board of Directors for the Montgomery County Agricultural Fair unanimously opposes this Bill for the following reasons:
This Bill will prevent certain licensed animal shows from preforming in Montgomery County Maryland.
In summary – The Montgomery County Agricultural Fair without animals is just a carnival.

What can I do? (more…)
