Freedom Friday: The President’s Day Edition

Hey Good People,

Let’s get real!  Many of you will NOT be going to Africa Underground this evening.  And it’s OK.  Instead folks are trying to get tickets or get on the VIP list or even crash the party.  *giving someone the side eye* You really don’t have to go through all these motions.  Check out these wonderful alternatives.  Also, if you can get some rays, please do.  I have had some serious cabin fever so I am really taking advantage of the break in weather. Be safe and enjoy the weekend.

Come out to support a local cause and local artists with Capital Canvases for a Cause.  There will be refreshments and drinks.   All proceeds are split 50/50 with the artist and non-profit.

Long & Foster on Capitol Hill

Friday Night Eclectic hosted by Strathmore spotlights Incwell this evening. Just like the hip party you would host-if you lived in a mansion with an art gallery, a cool band and a bartender. This genre-busting DC hip hop artist pushes the limits with such far-flung influences as Al Green, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon and Janis Joplin.
