Oh, and by the way, this blog has been nominated for the 'Best of list' in the Washington Post, in the neighborhood blog category. This would be so brilliant to win. Please vote for us! (It's a 30 second job, but why not vote for other cool DC stuff too while you're there!)
Wed 3rd Sept - Tonight is of course all about Perfect Liars Club in our shiny new venue, the Bier Baron. Which means that even if you don't have tickets, there will be some on the door as the venue is bigger! Doors at 6pm, show at 7:30pm. See you there!
Thu 4th Sept - Diner en Blanc is the latest word in DC hipster. Dress all in white, meet in a secret location with tables, chairs, food and champagne, and launch into a flashmob 'chic picnic'. As you do. Or else go to the Phillips after 5 for a celebration of 'slowing down'. This includes learning to pickle while listening to a quartet... Or if you're feeling crafty with a comic book penchant, the Smithsonian American Art Museum has a 'Handi hour' for you.
Thu 4th - Sun 7th Sept - Recent film festivals not quirky enough for you? It's the DC Chinese Film Festival all weekend! AND an outdoor mini-French film festival at American University.
Sat 6th Sept - The city-wide 5x5 public art exhibition launches today. To celebrate there are bus tours, receptions, poetry, and a print workshop. Or if you're feeling like learning something, for $15 you can head to Gallaudet University for a 'Day of Learning' - this sounds really cool, and gives you the option of 6 different classes every hour from 11-5, on all sorts of subjects from local DC stuff to choreography, arts, science, and storytelling!
Mon 8th Sept - It's been a while since we went to La Ti Do - where musical theatre and comedy collide in the basement of the Black Cat. Though Sistine Robot's Appletini improv night is always good fun too.
Tue 9th Sept - SpeakeasyDC's storytelling show tonight is on the theme 'hazed'... It should be good!
Things you might want to get tickets for in advance:
If you like short films, my favorite DC film festival, DC Shorts, starts on September 11th.
And if you like comedy, Bentzen Ball, DC's comedy festival of the year, run by Brightest Young Things, kicks off on October 1st.
