If you enjoyed last year’s public events at the Old Soldiers’ Home, you have another opportunity this Saturday, May 4th. According to the Friends of the Soldiers Home Website, they have organized an afternoon of games, food, and music. It is scheduled from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., on the lower grounds of the Armed Forces Retirement Home, Rock Creek Church Rd & Randolph St., NW, Washington, D.C.

The event is FREE, rain or shine. There is a $5 charge per car for those who drive in.

In addition to the fun and games, Brookland landscape architect Mary Pat Rowan will lead a 60-minute nature walk starting at 2 p.m. The walk will begin and end at the gazebo next to the pond at the Armed Forces Retirement Home.

It certainly looks like a great way to enjoy the weekend. It’s also great to see everything that the Friends of the Soldiers Home, partnering with the Armed Forces Retirement Home, has been able to accomplish in the past year.


Local Saturday Event Options: Looking Glass Lounge and Blue Banana

February 10, 2012

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it looks like Park View’s Looking Glass Lounge and the Blue Banana will both be doing something special in its honor. Blue Banana’s Saturday Stoplight Party will be the more low-key of the two.  The event runs from 9:oo p.m. to 2:00 a.m.

Looking Glass Lounge’s 3rd Annual Black Heart Masquerade Ball looks to be the bigger of the two events. Full details of this event are below:

When: Saturday, February 11 9:00 p.m. until 3:00 a.m.
Where: Looking Glass Lounge — 3634 Georgia Ave
What: 3rd Annual Black Heart Masquerade Ball

Event description below:

The Looking Glass Lounge has slowly been creeping into the hearts and livers of Park View & Petworth drinkers for the last few years. This Saturday the best neighborhood bar in NW is donning masks for the Third Annual Masquerade Ball. For the cost of nothing with no donation, all are welcome to spend the Saturday before Valentine’s Day consuming special punch made for those in love and those hating love. Drink and food specials all night. For the unprepared, masks will be available for $2.
