1208 H Street, NE

I totally forgot about these plans!

A new liquor license placard says:

“Total Occupancy Load of 99 with seating for 60 patrons. Summer Garden with a seating capacity of 14. The licensee also has an Entertainment Endorsement with Dancing and Cover Charge to provide live entertainment indoors only.”

This is the former Kitty’s Saloon space that closed back in September. STAY TUNED.

Or it’s just the same turkey. I don’t care. I love it!! Could you imagine if this was your car? hahaha. Thanks to Kathleen for sending from Edgewood.

If you spot a hawk or any interesting wildlife around town, lunching or otherwise, and get a good photo please send in an email where you spotted it to [email protected] I’ll add it to the queue. Hawks around Town is made possible by a generous grant from the Ben and Sylvia Gardner foundation.

From a press release:

“Artworx Consultants, Foxhall Partners, and artist Ravi Raman today unveiled his first street-art mural at 1737 Columbia Rd., Northwest in Adams Morgan. The mural, titled Love In Six Lines, is based on Raman’s series of paintings of the same name.

Inspired by Pablo Picasso’s minimalist glass paintings, artist Ravi Raman created Love In Six Lines as a celebration of love and relationships depicted in a series of whimsical paintings and Instagram posts. Limiting each illustration to just six lines, Raman makes the analogy between his simple yet deceptively complicated drawings to that of love and relationships. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I’m launching a large-scale street art project called Night of 1,000 Fridas. Together, I hope we can place 1,000 depictions of Frida Kahlo in public spaces. Participants who place art in Washington, D.C. are eligible for $600 in prize money.

To qualify, artists must create original artworks inspired by Frida Kahlo and place them in public view in Washington, D.C. on January 25, 2019. Works of art must include the “1KFridas” hashtag. This is a worldwide event, but only artwork displayed in D.C. is eligible for the cash prize.

Full details are here.

Hang on to your hats but we’re officially 12 years old!! Thank You for making that insanity a reality. Truly. As when I turned 12 years old, let’s lift a few to celebrate!! (I’m just kidding, mom.) I’ll be at Solly’s (upstairs) starting around 6pm and I’ll be there until 10:30/11 depending on how hard I hit the Powers. But seriously, I do want to thank everyone for making my dream a reality. I do not take it for granted. So let’s prost!! Hopefully see a few of you tomorrow night.

“Dear PoPville,

Wondering if you could take a look at the above photo and weigh in on whether it’s legitimate. These appeared Sunday (11/11) on both sides of our entire block in Shaw. While parking will be unrestricted in the evenings, the 7 AM start time screws over everyone who leaves for work at a later time than that, and to restrict parking on both sides of a whole block seems like a lot. What’s more, these parking signs don’t look like the usual ones I’m used to (maybe because it’s tree work, but I’m not sure) and I’m not sure enough notice was given. Am I overreacting or missing something? What say the readers?”
