tonight's #BloomieNights at Crispus Attucks Park cancelled

See this hot-off-the-presses message regarding tonight's #BloomieNights.

Mother Nature strikes again! CADC is sad to announce we will postpone our screening of "Midnight in Paris" scheduled for tonight. There's too much uncertainty in the weather forecast and we don't want to put anyone in danger.
We will keep our screening of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" scheduled for next Friday, August 25th and shift "Midnight in Paris" to Friday, Sept. 1st.
Thanks for your patience with all these changes, folks. We wish we could control the weather!

this Sunday afternoon: Bloomingdale.Fun.Fit POOL PARTY at Harry Thomas Rec Center -- come cool off!

Urban Turf: a Bloomingdale church sells and residence may take its place

This post is correct that there would be no HPRB review, since Bloomingdale is not historically designated.

Seems like zoning relief would be required for 8 dwelling units on the corner lot.

To enter the tomato recipe competition:
Bring a dish that heavily features tomatoes. Make sure there is enough to feed about eight people and bring a serving dish and serving utensils. We'll judge based on four categories - "Best Salsa," "Most Creative," "Best Spicy Dish," and "Best Overall Tomato Dish."

You don't need to bring a dish to join in!

tonight at Big Bear Cafe: The Unified Scene Theater's Storytelling-for-Performance-Class grad show

The Unified Scene Theater's Storytelling-for-Performance-Class Grad Show @ Big Bear Cafe, Wednesday, August 16th, 8 pm

Storytelling has been around since the beginning of time as a way for us to relate to each other and give meaning to our experiences. However, in more recent years, oral storytelling has grown as a performance art, allowing us to perfect the art of telling, and shape our stories into compelling narratives that educate, entertain, inspire and often transform perception.
We're partnering with Big Bear Cafe (how cool is that?), located at 1700 1st Street, NW, Washington, DC, for the graduation showcase for our Storytelling for Performance class, on Wednesday, August 16th starting at 8 pm! That means we won't be at the usual TUS space, we'll be at Big Bear Cafe when our awesome students show us what they've learned over the past four weeks. Big Bear Cafe is generously providing drink and HHour specials. 
Show up and support our latest cast of graduates: 
Byron Crooks
Frankie Abralind
Caroline Nichols
Claire Dennis
Gina Deavers 
Giovanni Diviacchi
Rashee Raj
Danielle Witt 
Hosted by Kathy Baird Westfall and Shawn Westfall, co-founders of The Unified Scene Theater
