There's been an array of spoken word fun this month. I got to perform at the Angelika in Fairfax as part of a SpeakeasyDC show. My first excursion to Fairfax and I have to say, it was quite an expedition, especially the long and ominous walk down 'Gallows Road'... However, the Angelika was great, and our storytelling as part of a film festival was very cool - we performed in front of the cinema screen and played clips from movies mentioned in our stories! I enjoyed Science Comedy on Friday at the Bier Baron. And of course last night was Perfect Liars Club which was fab - pics and details here. Also, not sure I can call it spoken word as most of it was silent, but
Sports rarely features in Brit About Town, but my lovely wife and I had our very first ice hockey experience on Thursday, and it was quite exciting! Also, there was a dessert buffet in the posh bit where we were sitting. Most of you by now know my very positive views about a dessert buffet.
Cool things coming up in DC this week
Be warned - there's not much, probably because it's Easter.
Thu 2nd - Four women went kayaking in remotest Asia and are coming to the National Geographic to tell us all about it.
