Tonight start the weekend with Hitchcock, Peck and Bergman with Spellbound. This is the final in a film series which has focused on the use of psychology in the films of both Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles. (I am SO bummed I missed Touch of Evil.) Following the screening will be a discussion with Tom Zaniello, Capitol Hill resident and facilitator of the Capitol Hill Village’s Cinephiles film discussion group. The screening begins at 7:30 and is free, although registration is suggested.

Friday from 11am-1pm learn some healthy eating and hydrating tips. Host Linden Coyne and holistic health coach Addie Spahr Kim lead a Healthy Eating and Hydrating Workshop which includes lunch following a food demo.  Prepare to learn to overcome “Busy People Syndrome” as an excuse for not preparing healthier meals and easy swaps to increase your nutrition and ideas for a adding some zazz to water so you drink more. Cost: $20/person (includes resources and lunch after the demo). The workshop takes place at Ms. Kim’s 1319 Constitution Ave NE, Unit B. Register here.

The parade is at 4:45 pm and will be led by both Mayor Bowser AND one of the Racing Presidents from the Nationals. (Can you stand it??)
