Wake to Washington


We’re still on vacation this week

...but it’s Scheduler day, so here you go! Plus a tasting menu of to knows:

Jason Concepción, Wizard of the Viral NBA

Pop-Up Magazine is a genre-smashing publication that brings together documentarians, photographers, science writers, musicians, food writers, and anyone else with a story that can captivate an audience, live. Jason Concepción fits the bill—he writes about the NBA as if it is a reality show; reality shows as if they are dramas; and dramas as if they are sports. Read our interview with Jason ahead of his Pop-Up appearance...and then grab a ticket and use code 5SUPPORTER for $5 off for 730DC readers.
