Po Boy Jim's New Signage Is Looking Good

Po Boy Jim

Po Boy Jim Bar & Grill (709 H Street) has some sweet new signage up now. It's looking like they'll open any day now. Who's excited to sink their teeth into some Po' Boys?

I like the sign, and I'm very much looking forward to their opening.

I'm really glad to see something in the middle of H Street! The east and west ends have seen lots of development, the middle has sadly been lacking.

And Anon 11:57 -- did you not get enough hugs as a child? What's with the snark, troll?

I agree with 11:57. It's not about not getting enough hugs as a child or trolling (Anon 8:11 AM). The sign just isn't unique or special. It's good that they have a sign, I suppose, but I wouldn't pretend that it's a sign that really inspires me to check the place out. I'll wait for customer reviews.

Why should it be any more like TruOrleans than Granville Moore? Does cajun theme food make you crazy or something?

Anyone who doesn't think the sign is special, please let me know when your sign designing company opens up shop, so I can see what you can do.

I'm happy to welcome a new business to the neighborhood! The more, the merrier!

I see a lot of construction activity on the 600 block too...

anon 9:03: have you eaten at Granville Moores lately? The quality has really declined. The crab dip I ordered last time was abominable. I remember when their food used to amazing.

The food was legit when I tried it at the H St fest. They had Leidenheimer bread and the batter they fried fish in had flavor.

Was it ever verified that nearby neighbors shot down live music there though? Never was able to find anything on that. I live nearby and would love to hear live music there.

agree that there's nothing special about the sign. it's better than the tarp by the new grill coming on 5th and H, but most signs are just bland signs. look at sidamo that is a sign. check out their sign making company you trolls!

Who gives a sh!t about the sign? I care about a new business in the hood that may have good sandwiches. Priorities people, priorities.

I'm excited about the Lebanese Grill coming to 5th and H. Not sure why there hasn't been any news about it here.

Anon 8:15, I have a hug for you too. Come get it!

The point is that facade of this building is much improved over what it had been. And signage is an important element in the urban landscape. The addition of a perpendicular sign adds interest to the street and to the building, which is why you see more places adopting their use. Flat signs have been done and they draw less attention than something that's physically "out-there."

So when do you want to hug it out?

the perpendicular sign is the same as a parallel sign. a hug is not going to change that fact. if you think because a sign is perpendicular is interesting, there is something wrong with you. hugging strangers is a little bit crazy too.

Can I hug you 11:33? Then maybe you can sit on my knee and I can explain sarcasm to you.

11:33 -- go back and read 10:55's comment. It said that the sign added interest to the street and to the building; nothing was said about the sign being interesting because it's perpendicular. Reading is FUNdamental... as are hugs.

11:33 is clearly not talking about abstract geometry. Read the thread. However, if you need some geometry, when something is labeled parallel or perpendicular, there will be a line or shape that is in contrast to what is parallel or perpendicular. In this thread and 11:33's comments a perpendicular SIGN or parallel SIGN is not an shape abstracted from a specific contrasting line or a specific constrasting shape. What is the constrasting line to the parallel or perpendicular SIGN? It's the street.

So, when one comments if a parallel SIGN or perpendicular sign is not interesting, one is totes considering the street when one is labeling the sign interesting or not.

ANON 10:55 AM, I'd love to hug it out with you. Even better if you are M4M and bearish, but a free hug is a free hug. The world needs more hugs. Let me know how I can collect on your offer.

Totally off topic but does anyone know what is happening in the triangular square piece of land on Florida avenue across from West Virginia?

That lot is slated for residential construction.

Alan posts sure bring out the trolls. How did he hurt you? LOL.

That sign looks better than the abandoned building that was there before there was a sign.

But trolls gon' troll!

Can anyone tell me what the details area about the large construction site on H at 6th?
Is the western building being left intact while the center area built and the eastern building rehabbed?
BTW, we are psyched for both the Cajun place and the Lebanese place! We don't care about their sign but we are grateful they are not using riot shutters. Riot shutters leave the strip looking tired and seedy, regardless of what business is behind them. I give kudos to those businesses who are trying to update their exteriors to make the streetscape more inviting.
