Pow Pow (1253 H Street) invites neighbors to a free "Show us your mug" coffee social tomorrow (Saturday) from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Bring in your own mug to fill a cup. It's the restaurant's way of thanking the neighbors who have supported the place since its opening, and also an invitation for those who haven't visited Pow Pow to come in an check the place out.
The Kingman Park Civic Association has put in an application with the Historic Preservation Review Board to designate Kingman Park as an historic district. The proposed historic district would be bounded by 15th Street on the west, the Anacostia River on the east, M Street on the north, and East Capitol Street on the south. Those unfamiliar with the KPCA might want to look the group up, as they have a pretty interesting history documented online.
