Wake to Washington

Est. 2013

State of emergency

DCist reports that, with DC cases up to 10, “it appears that the virus is now being spread locally.” Bowser’s authorization will open up funding for first responders, gear, and more. All events over 1,000 participants are strongly discouraged; IMP (9:30 Club/U Hall/The Anthem) canceled shows.


BloomWatch: New date!

The peak bloom date for cherry blossoms has been shifted up by nearly a week to March 21-24 given warmer temps. Earlier peak bloom is a sign of climate change.


Taking horse to Florida Avenue, etc. 

The hero we need: “A Man Rode A Horse Through Northeast D.C. During Rush Hour. He Says He Did It For The Kids.” The man was born in Southwest, and now owns a Maryland horse farm; he saw that it was a nice day out, and decided to ride. “There are a lot of children who have never seen a horse in person. And I put a lot of smiles on children’s faces.”


Make big talk

Hello Neighbor wants to connect strangers and bypass the small talk to expand our social circles and make real connections. Started by a DC resident, the experiences usually take place at a coffee shop or restaurant, and you can sign up via an email list. Similar dinner party-esque initiatives have sprouted up at restaurants and other establishments like Via Umbria’s Chef’s Table dinners and America Eats Tavern’s Sunday Suppers.
