14th & You reports that Green Pets and comic book shop Big Monkey Comics will be vacating their current space on 14th between R and S (roughly across from the Black Cat). 14&You describes it as the “loss of their lease” but a subsequent indirect quote from Green Pets owner Linda Welch that they are “victims of rising commercial lease rates along 14th Street” makes it sound more like a renewal that was more expensive than they could stomach.

Local sex-ed business WholeDC confirms in the blog comments and on their Facebook page that they’ll be coming in and taking over some space on the second floor of that building.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
