Why even bother with this column this week? The World Series is coming to DC! This Nationals fairy tale fantasy will fuel so many old person stories into the future and I am ready for that.
I suppose there are other things happening around the neighborhood. Let’s have a look.
Tonight there is no baseball so you can go to a Pay-What-You_can preview performance of Mosaic Theatre’s production of Theory at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. The story of a young professor who allows her students to test the limits of free speech feels like something my family would argue about over dinner. Books tickets. The show runs through November 17th.
Friday is game 3 of the World Series!
Also, Hilloween is on again for another year. Bring little ones and wander enjoying the vendors and giveaways and some moon bounces in the North Hall. The fun happens early burning bright and crowded from 5:30 to 7:30. Need more Halloween ideas? Check out our Halloween post here.
The In Series presents Stormy Weather at the Atlas. This cabaret-style retelling of the story of Shakespeare’s The Tempest is seen from the viewpoint of Sycorax, mother of Caliban and mistress of Ariel using the music of Billie Holiday. Tickets are $16- $41.
Saturday is Game 4 of the World Series
Are you participating in the Walk and 5K to End HIV? Good luck! If not take note of the route here.
You may want to participate in that 5K before you go to the DC Mac and Cheese Festival in the Akridge lot near Audi field at 1880 2nd St. SW. There will be 30 craft beers and 25 types of mac and cheese. The event begins at 1pm for the hoi polloi or noon if you grab a VIP ticket. Learn more here.
Capitol Hill Arts Workshop hosts its annual Spooktacular. From 3pm to 4:30 all are welcome enjoy a free recital by costume-clad music students. There will be food and other activities for all.
Sunday might be Game 5 of the World Series.
Also the Annual Marine Corp Marathon is happening! If you are running bon chance! If you are cheering folks on have fun! If you are easily aggravated by the road closures you might want to look here.
In closing, whatever you do…do not drive to or even near the ball park. And Go Nats!
