First Friday Tomorrow — Screening of Movie “City of Trees”

Tomorrow is the next First Friday on Georgia Avenue, from 6 pm – 9 pm. First Friday’s celebrate the small businesses in our neighborhood and allow neighbors to enjoy all they have to offer from food and drink specials to books, yoga, etc., fun and live music and art. For the list of participating businesses check here and look for the First Friday posters in store windows. Also, on Friday look for First Friday chalk marks in front of participating businesses.

This month, there are a few “special events” for Friday worth highlighting and a kid friendly activity all around the “theme” for Green Spaces including green spaces for dogs.

Green Spaces — “City of Trees” movie screening
Green spaces are an important part of our lives and DC neighborhoods and they contribute to our health and well being. DC documentary film makers Meridian Hill Pictures (meridianhillpictures.com) will showcase a story about green spaces,  community and the efforts of DC’s “Washington Parks and People” (washingtonparks.net) in their documentary “City of Trees” (cityoftreesfilm.com). Meridian Hill Pictures is making the film available for a free community screening during First Friday. Come to Colony Club (www.colonyclub.com) at 3118 Georgia Ave NW, the film will start at around 7:30pm. Washington Parks and People will join the community for the event.

An example of the wide range of use of our green spaces will be a an installation by Noa Heyne (https://www.noa-heyne.com/) at the Bruce Monroe Site as part of CulturalDC’s “SPACE4: Mobile Art Gallery”.  Take a sneak peak from 5-7 pm on Friday before its official opening on Saturday. Thanks to District Bridges for making that connection.

Kid Friendly Activity
For kids, Walls of Books is going with the dog and outdoor theme and are hosting the author of “The Adventures of Prada Enchilada” (www.adckid.comwww.facebook/theadventuresofpradaenchilada) with interactive storytelling that the kids will enjoy. (And Walls of Books has some “treats” for the parents as well in addition to the opportunity to stock up on some winter/spring reads)

With so much available on Friday night, there’s no need to stay home. Come out and have a great time!
