Pike Business of the Week - Lost Dog Cafe

Hey...this blog is going to the dogs this week! hahaha

Lost Dog Cafe isn't on the Pike yet...but is set to be one of the new business's moving in after all the construction has cleared. I love this place! Not only does it have great food...it does great things for stray dogs and cats.

Here's what they say about themselves, "The Lost Dog Café has been serving up great pizza, hot sandwiches and beer from around the world in Arlington’s Westover neighborhood since 1985. Wellknown as a place to get great food at a great price, the café also serves up a hefty slice of compassion with each pizza. Café owners Ross Underwood and Pam McAlwee have been rescuing stray dogs and cats almost as long as they have been in business and the effort continues.

It began with a few “lost” dogs needing a place to stay until they could find new homes of their own. In 2001, thanks largely to the success of the Lost Dog Café, the pair established a non-profit foundation dedicated solely to the cause of helping homeless and abandoned dogs and cats find forever homes. Today the Lost Dog and Cat Rescue Foundation (LDCRF) places almost 2000 animals per year into permanent, loving homes—each one spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The foundation’s efforts continue to be supported by the Lost Dog Café and its sister restaurant (just a few doors down), the Stray Cat Café."

Where are they moving to? And are they moving or will this be a second restaurant? I love Lost Dog, and I haven't heard anything about it until now. What's the scoop?

According to the Columbia Pike Partnership Website:

"Lost Dog Cafe Signs Letter of Intent for Space at the Halstead

According to the website of KLNB, the broker handling the leasing of retail space at the Halstead (corner of Columbia Pike and S. Walter Reed Dr.) Lost Dog Cafe intends to lease 2,400 square ft. on the ground floor of the new building on Columbia Pike. Since 1985 Lost Dog has developed a loyal following for their original restaurant in the Westover neighborhood in North Arlington. Previously, World Gym signed a letter of intent for 6,000 sq. ft. at the Halstead. Parties interested in other retail space at the Halstead may contact Julie Cyphers of KLNB at (703) 722-2707."

Following up on the swing and Jan Kennemer.... do any folks on here know who is up for reelection? Is Jan's turn up? Can we mount a coordinated effort if she is? A coordinated effort is the only way to cast out the old guard. Jan owns too many units herself and controls too many votes as proxy to oust her unless folks work together to get her, and those who want to keep AV as it was in 1980's, off the board. Wake up AV, this is 2008! The world around us is changing. If you want to retain home values you have to make AV a place that appeals to home buyers today. Quite frankly a kid-friendly, pet-friendly, diverse (black, white, gay, straight, old, young) community is what makes this place great. Vote down those who want to make sure we live in a 1980's community. Vote progress!

And... Save Spohia's Swing! (or maybe our cry should be SOS ... Save Our Swing)

I think a middle-aged celibate Asian hermaphrodite lived here in the 1980's.

He/she is ok, right?

Was he/she a communiss?

I don't think so. Though he/she did spend time at the Mara Kannon shrine in Japan.

Good lord... the IQ's on here? What's a communiss?

Relax, Ignatius. Not everybody can be a genus. Diversity: learn it, live it, be it. That's my advice. Even for a cawm-niss.

Capitalize Lord, and tell us what your I.Q.s is. (are?)

I really don't want to have to moderate comments. Please be civil to one another and in reference to people on the Board. Thank you.

Thanks for the info. This is great news even if I am looking to move soon.
