Interrupting your regularly scheduled programming....730DC TURNS 6
Come to Dew Drop Inn this Sunday to celebrate with us, and bring a friend or five! Caravan over with DC Bike Party, then join a historical walking tour of Brookland, laugh to standup, bop along with live DJs and bands, screenprint t-shirts, and—best of all in our humble opinion—meet your fellow readers. (Sunday, 2-5 pm)
