Trump is going to be the first President to attend the annual anti-abortion, anti-reproductive rights, anti-woman, anti-human rally. So just be ready when you step out into the city today to direct someone asking the way to the White House Ellipse to, say, Navy Yard or Takoma instead.
Cowork with us
We’re back at Eaton House for another Locale! Hang out, talk shop, nap on a fancy couch, and linger for drinks afterwards (or join us there even if you can’t cowork!). Space for coworking is limited so reserve a ticket; happy hour is open to all. (10am-5pm)
