Murals in Queen Village

Lately, bold and bright butterflies have appeared on the wall at 4th and Fulton. This mural art project by Conrad Booker, “Harmony and the Windows of Curiosity” show butterflies symbolizing rebirth. Queen Village wants this wall to become a destination for neighbors and a remembrance for the former burial ground at Weccacoe Playground that we recently touched on in our previous post.

This public art project is nearing completion with one final, unique element left to add. With the help of the neighborhood and  it’s children, a three dimensional ‘window frame’ will picture toys and neighborhood kids’ handprints. Queen Village needs your support to help complete this mural project. Help by donating and encouraging pubic art projects in communities all over the country. Donate online or by check/money order to Queen Village Neighbors Association P.O. Box 63763, Philadelphia, PA 19147.

If you happen to be strolling through Queen Village this week, head out to September Yappy Hour with your four legged friends! Thursday September 12, 5:30-7:30pm join QVK9 at Kennett (848 s. 2nd Street) and enjoy half off all draft beers, glasses of wine and pizza specials! Last month was a hit so they do suggest to RSVP online.

For Canine Friends and the Community

Philadelphia is considered to be a ‘dog friendly’ city. With many establishments of retail, cafes and hotels allowing your furry friend access inside. Numerous pet supply and doggie salons can be found in our neighborhoods. So why not treat a mans best friend to an hour we all seem to look forward to; Happy Hour.. or in this case I am talking about Yappy Hour.

Join New Wave Cafe in Queen Village tonight (August 13th) for their 5th Yappy Hour. From 5:30-7:30pm bring your leashed four legged friends and enjoy happy hour dog themed specials, treats and more.

Since we love our dogs so much, its no surprise that we have focused committees for our dogs in order to provide the most fulfilling and pet friendly neighborhoods. QVK9 is Queen Village’s Dog Committee, comprised of local pet owners and any animal lover who is an advocate for dog health and happiness. Yappy Hour was introduced by QVK9’s. You can support QVK9’s by joining in their Scoop The Poop Campaign. After two years of planning, this campaign is finally launching to actively keeping our streets and sidewalks clean of dog waste.

This past weekend QVK9’s were hard at work installing containers specifically placed at high dog traffic areas offering a bag holder with bags for dog waste only. Word is you can sponsor a container, while assuming the responsibility of emptying it regularly. There are about five locations already installed close to Front and South street areas. An additional five should be popping up by this weekend. Here’s a map that qvna.org provided showing us just where to find these dog waste stations.
