“Dear Friends, Neighbors and Dog Parents,
We deeply regret having to make this statement, but Washington DC’s Dept. of Health just paid us a visit and told us we are NO LONGER ALLOWED TO HAVE DOGS on the property until further notice. This means all dogs including Andy Pants. We are very sorry for this awful change, but we have no control over it. Write your council member, we are.
Ward 1 CM Brianne Nadeau ([email protected]) since both Midlands and Wonderland are both in her district,
Just put it all in the same email
Midlands & Andy”
One reader notes from the comments: “The Midlands Inspector told me that “this all stems from the Washington Post.” They supposedly put out an article or something about a complaint they received about all the dogs on patios in dc. This is what she told me.”
Ed. Note: For those who wish to debate kids in bars, you may have a refresher here, also about Midlands.

You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in D.C.

Thanks to WayneMan Comedy for the update: “Someone told me Hooters in Chinatown is closing at the end of this month.”
A couple weeks ago we learned that this Hooters was listed for lease but we hadn’t heard when the closing date was. Couple more weeks to get your wings.
Thanks to a reader for sending:
“There’s movement at the Yoga Heights under Takoma Central in Takoma DC! (Same building where Bus Boys is located.) This sign is now posted on the door but major construction still being done inside.”

From Tail Up Goat’s Jill Tyler:
“We moved to St. Thomas in the summer of 1989. Just a few weeks after we arrived, Hurricane Hugo hit. Our roof peeled away from our home and we took shelter in a closet and held a mattress over our heads. I was in kindergarten.
It’s strange how you adapt, what becomes normal. We didn’t have power for months. Our roof was a blue FEMA tarp. To bathe, my parents dipped buckets on ropes into our cistern to pull up water, and we showered with cups and buckets. We used Coleman camping stoves to cook and Coleman camping lanterns for light after the sun set. We had a cooler that we kept perishable food in. My mom stood in lines outside of grocery stores to wait to get to shop from the picked-over shelves. This was life for months. (more…)
Holy crow, MARVIN is gonna be 10?!?!?. Seems like just yesterday we were freaking out over a $15 burger. Stay tuned for details on the 10 year party soon.
