It seems like the first post-Holiday weekend of the year can’t get here fast enough. We’ve put together a little list of fun ways to spend it on the Hill!
Get the weekend started at Ebenezers on Thursday the 7th at 7:30pm with Modern Underground hosted by my friend and fellow Hill resident Laura Tsaggaris. This month’s installment features Allie Moss and Bess Rogers. You can buy tickets here.
On Friday the 8th, spell for your (liquid) supper at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hotel, which hosts the Buzzed Spelling Bee from 7pm-9pm. First place wins a $60 bar tab. That’s a lot of PBR. (Be warned, if I go to this, you’re going to lose.)
If spelling isn’t your thing, head over to The Corner Store for Holy Trinity: Three Souls in Search of Self, a play written and performed by Terry Nicholetti, directed by Laura Zam. The description is intriguing enough: What do a Mary Kay sales woman who has lost her courage to dance, an Irish Catholic priest who cannot ask God to forgive his homosexuality, and a motivational speaker who has lost her motivation have in common? Find out in this funny and touching exploration of what it means to be true to one’s self – and what it costs us when we are not. The show starts at 8 pm and they ask for a $15 donation. Please RSVP by calling 202-544-5807.
Finish off your weekend by taking your pants off and riding the Metro at 3pm on Sunday the 10th. While this would be a hilariously mean prank on the part of yours truly if it weren’t already a well publicized event, it’s real and sounds like a fantastic after-church activity!
Speaking of church, St. Mark’s Yoga Center’s special monthly event, Experience Yoga Nidra with Pamela Wilson: A state of mind in between wakefulness and dream, will be held from 2:30 – 4:30 pm in the Dance Studio. $15 preregistered / $20 at the door, no experience in yoga or meditation is necessary.
If no one was impressed with your physique sans pants on Sunday’s Metro ride, ease into your New Year’s workout routine at the Rock and Roll Hotel on Monday the 11th, where the ping pong tables will be set up for open play.
