Hello August! Summer is flying by, so please get out there and carpe all your diems.
Tonight, contemplate the eternal chicken-or-egg question at a ribbon-cutting event in NOMA. The NOMA BID has installed a two piece sculpture called The Chicken and the Egg on National Park Service-owned land on North Capitol, N Street and New York Avenue. The ceremony begins at 6 p.m.
Friday morning, Plum Patch hosts another art workshop at Shopkeepers (1231 Florida Ave NE). This week’s theme is all things farm! The event is drop-in between 10 a.m. and noon. For more information and to register head over here.
That night Jaws is playing at the Union Market Drive-In. While I have not seen the film since the 80s, I’m sure it has held up. Roy Scheider is the beach town sheriff; Richard Dreyfuss is some sort of marine biologist and Robert Shaw as that salty old Quint all hunting for a giant shark terrorizing 1970s Martha’s Vineyard. It’s just so good.
Saturday night, take a quick salsa lesson and then spend the rest of the night perfecting your moves at Saturday Night Dancing at The Wharf. Instruction will be provided by Salsa by Silvia and the music will be provided by Sin Miedo. The lesson begins at 7 p.m. and open dancing starts at 8 p.m.
Sunday, Unique Market hosts a retail pop-up shop at Dock 5 at Union Market. From 11a.m. to 5 p.m., you can stop in and shop for goods created by small businesses. Tickets are $5 General Admission and there will be free Jeni’s ice cream.
