Neighborhood Weekend Happenings

So, you're out and about in our lovely neighborhood this weekend, looking for something to do. Allow us to make a few suggestions:

Go Mama Go is hosting the opening of a photography exhibit entitled "Small, Perfect Worlds," featuring the works of Jennifer Leeman and Bright Side Pictures. The opening will feature a reception with the artists this Friday from 6p - 8p. The exhibit runs through October 31.

DC's own Antonio Parker will be playing this Friday at HR-57. Saturday, Rhythmic Accent takes the stage. If you've never seen Antonio play, you should--he's one of the most talented performers we have in this region.

If you're a college football junkie (as I am - Go Bucks), head over to Nellie's on Saturday where they have more games on than you could possibly watch. For food, I recommend the sliders. Even better: at halftime, you can play a game of Jenga.

On Saturday, head up to Busboys and Poet for a live musical performance featuring Hiram King, Joy Ike, Brooke Annibale and Garret Heath. Conservatives be warned: you probably won't find much to read in their bookstore.

Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't mention the DC AIDS walk, occurring this Saturday morning on the Mall. Mre details over at Borderstan, or just head over to the official event website.

Oh, conservatives will find plenty to read on Busboy's bookshelves--they just might not agree with much, or any, of it.
