Hi Summer friends! Are you embracing all that summer has to offer or are you a summer-hater? I like summer fine but I really don’t do it right. I am just super annoyed I can’t use it as a verb…
How are you choosing to summer your weekend?
Tonight, get a little smarter at Wisdom with Two Scientists Walk Into a Bar. What began as a program created by the Fleet Science Center in San Diego has come east to the City of Nerds. Local Scientists will be in 7 bars around town, ready to chat about their areas of expertise. At Wisdom in Southeast, the chat will cover Neuroscience and Epidemiology from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Over in Northeast at the Pie Shop, the topics will be Environmental Microbiology and Marine Biology from 7:30-9:30 p.m.
Friday night, Justin Trawick and Navy Band Country Current perform at the Yards Park Free Friday Night Concert. Truckeroo is happening nearby as well, so concert goers will have many more food options for their riverside dining.
Saturday morning, do Yoga at the Wharf. The free class begins at 9 a.m. on the Transit Pier. After class, enjoy complimentary juice from Toastique. I assume you should bring your own mat and water and sunscreen but you knew that since you are a mindful yogi.
Bring the family to CHAW for Summer Saturdays workshop. The free workshops run all summer long from 10 a.m. to noon and feature a roating line up of teaching artists.
Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m., music scholar, historian, record collector and a multi-instrumentalist Don Flemons presents Black Cowboys at the Hill Center. Flemons was a founder of the Carolina Chocolate Drops and his solo repertoire covers over 100 years of American song writing. His Black Cowboys album highlights music made by African Americans in the Old West. Tickets are $18 and you can purchase them here.
Cross Pennsylvania Avenue and head to the Corner Store for an evening of meditative sounds. Cheryl Corson will play Peter Hess singing bowls and other instruments while attendees either sit on chairs or lie on a yoga mat. If you have not ever tried a sound meditation give it a try! Suggested donation is $25 at the door. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org; 202-494-5054 if you have other concerns.
