Alright, we are back. I am once again aware of the day of the week and have returned to only wearing yoga pants outside of the house for fitness related activities. Already winning 2020.
How to continue the winning into the weekend then you ask? Well… here’s a few ideas.
Tonight, explore new tiny green worlds and learn the Build Your Own Terrarium at a workshop at Steadfast Supply. Anna Johnston, owner of Jungle & Loom will guide you as you craft your very own to take home and love. The workshop begins at 6:30 p.m. and costs $45.
Friday at 5 p.m. is a Kids Concert and Happy Hour at the Hill Center. Family fave King Bullfrog will take the stage and their repertoire of original folk and blues music may make cause a wee mosh pit. Pizza will be provided. Grown ups are free to purchase grown up libations. Tickets are $10 for kids and $5 for grown ups.
Saturday, the boys are back in town. The World Series Champions Washington Nationals return to Nationals Park for Winterfest all weekend!
Players, coaches, and front office staff will make appearances throughout the weekend, participating in Q&A sessions and signing autographs for fans. There will also be photo opportunities with the World Series Trophy, a snow angel photo station, and apparently a curling station? Winterfest is open noon to 4 p.m. both days and tickets and more information can be found here.
Sunday at 2 p.m. at St. Mark’s is a screening of the film Five Awake. The documentary follows Louisiana advocates as they champion a historic legislative package to protect victims of domestic abuse and save lives. Their advocacy resulted in unanimous passage of the most comprehensive package of bills ever aimed at stopping domestic violence, including a controversial proposal restricting the gun rights of domestic abusers. Producer Donna Dee Thomas will participate in a post-screening discussion moderated by Laura Morris, with the Survivor Network of the DC chapter of Moms Demand Action.The event is free and open to all.
It’s on Monday, but here’s an event from our Event Calendar that deserves your attention: Swing by Eat Brgz (250 7th Street, SE across from Eastern Market) on Monday, January 13 between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. for a meal and 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the Tyler Elementary PTA.
