Today’s weekend Shoutouts will have to be abbreviated, as work is cramping by blogging style today (as work pays and blogging doesn’t, I can’t be too upset I guess. . .).
1. Chris Juengel at The Space on Saturday Night – The Space will feature one of my favorite, yet-to-make it big-time musicians, Chris Juengel (pictured), at The Space's first monthly acoustic event. Never heard of Chris? Check out his awesome, soothing sounds here and, when you fall in love with his music, buy his CD here. There will be a cash bar for this special event, with drinks only $5. Doors open at 9, and Chris goes on at 10. There's a $10 cover unless you rsvp to firstname.lastname@example.org before tomorrow night, so RSVP!!!
2. Cocktails and Veggies at Vegetate – Stop by Vegetate for dinner tonight or tomorrow night or for brunch on Sunday to enjoy a beer or a glass of wine or a cocktail with your meal. I, myself, am hoping to chill in their lounge at some point this weekend myself.
3. The usual fun stuff in and around Shaw - Check out the Liberation Dance Party at DC9, the shows at 9:30 Club, Black Cat, Arena Stage, and Studio Theater, the cultural offerings of the Warehouse Arts Complex, Project 4 Gallery, the Ninth Street Gallery, and the Long View Gallery, and the chance to get your freak on and knock back some drinks at places like Avenue and Be Bar.
I'm surely leaving off a few specific notable events, so chime in if you know of something particularly great going on in our great neighborhood!
