Happy Friday, everyone! Our non-profits have some great events coming up this weekend, so be sure to check them out. I wish that I could be in five places at once:
Saturday, September 25
Noon-4:00 PM – Seaport Day 2010 (Alexandria Seaport Foundation): enjoy boat building demonstrations, Pirate Cruises every hour, and refreshment and small hand-crafted boats on sale.
5:00 PM-11:00 PM – “Chef for a Day” at MIO Restaurant (Thrive DC): celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month and watch Kevin John Gomez showcase his interpretation of fusion between Puerto Rico and American cuisine.
8:00 PM – Symphony Lounge (Capital City Symphony): catch the encore presentation of last March’s sold-out “Jazz Meets Classical” concert, featuring Charlie Barnett’s Chaise Lounge band and the full Capital City Symphony.
8:00 PM – Dance Party for The Reading Connection: dance the night away at an 80s and 90s-themed party, thrown by the Reading Connection and Dance for a Cause.
Sunday, September 26
