Welcome friends! Baseball is back, Bryce is gone and we are moving on with our lives. He’s just not that into us and we are FINE.
How are we moving on this weekend?
Tonight, learn how the literal sausage is made (I am pretty sure I have made that joke before. Sorry?) at Union Market’s Test Kitchen.
Join Harvey’s Market owners George + Marty and local chef Jennifer Jones for a hands-on lesson on sausage making. You will learn to make some sausage and test some too. There will be some crostini and wine too, so you can go ahead and call it dinner. Tickets are $65 and the class starts at 7 p.m.
Friday, DC’s very own “contemporary cool king” saxophonist Brad Linde brings his latest band DIX OUT to the Atlas Performing Arts Center to celebrate the release of their debut album “There’ll Be SOME Changes Made,” featuring songs from the 1920s trad jazz repertoire. Tickets are $13-$30 and the show begins at 8 p.m.
