The Prince of Petworth blog has this recent post about the opening of Sisterspace and Books, near the Petworth metro. Sounds like a great addition to the streetscape around there, and to the neighborhood culture in general.
Back in July, I spotted the Google Maps Street View car driving the neighborhood, and checking Street View today I noticed they've updated their images based on July's drive by. Check out your block, and see if you, like me, are on Google Street View:
After much thought, I've decided to cancel the arts fair this year as I have not been able to give it the attention it needs to be successful for all the participants. It is also not possible to use Domku as the primary location anymore as Saturday daytime business is simply too hectic to accommodate diners and the arts fair at the same time.
I'd like to try to have the fair in the spring (possibly around Mothers Day) if a suitable alternative location can be found. It's a great and fun annual event for Petworth so I will do what I can to make sure it continues to be. Suggestions and assistance always appreciated.
Last Thursday [11/12] there was a groundbreaking for the new CVS at Georgia and New Hampshire. The Park View DC blog has the story here, and a picture of the long-gone Peoples drug store on that spot here.
