Wake to Washington

The road is made by walking

And you thought Halloween was fun

Celebrate Día de los Muertos at the National Museum of the American Indian this weekend with arts, crafts, music, heritage and more. Check it out this weekend.


Your guide to DC flora this fall

We have a new seasonal guide to nature around the District. Take a peek at which leaves to peep, what to grow, and a conversation with nature writer Melanie Choukas-Bradley on what makes our urban forest so special. 


The game of worker rebellion

So meta: This board game designed in part by DC-based Jobs with Justice is protesting Kickstarter, on Kickstarter. Strike! can be supported on Kickstarter here.


In praise of just-okay restaurants

In the midst of the DC's buzzing food scene are the comfortable faves, eateries with mediocre to shitty food but the accessibility and familiarity have earned your dollars and a front-of-mind spot, and when they close, you can’t help but feel a pang of sadness and nostalgia. What’s your favorite mediocre but lovable spot?


The Wasteington (com)Post

Ward 3 Council member Mary Cheh introduced a bill that would require businesses and large restaurants to compost food scraps as part of a larger effort to reduce waste in DC (we’re coming up short on our goal to divert 80% of trash away from landfills by 2032). Want to get a head start? Check out the EPA’s Food Recovery Hierarchy here.


Reversal of fortune

The Nats final homestand couldn’t have gone worse after ace Max Scherzer woke up with a surprise injury Sunday and couldn’t start. We head back to Houston facing elimination--but also two wins away from the championship. Reason for hope: The home team has lost every game this World Series.
