Weekend Shoutouts

Shaw always provides an assortment of exciting weekend options. Here are just a piddly few:

1. Shaw Community Day – this first-ever extravaganza literally offers something for everyone (and for everyone's dogs!) and is an awesome way to meet neighbors and have some fun. Check out Commissioner Chapple's forum for updates and detailed discussions of all this exciting event offers (three words are enough to entice me: Ben's Chilli Bowl!!!). Anyone wanting to volunteer, show up at the park at 8am.

2. Project 4’s Opening Reception for Building – Project 4’s latest exhibition, “Building,” opens tonight from 6:30 to 8pm. The exhibit runs from today through July 28 and tells an intriguiging story about a building in Belfast. Check out the press release here, and attend the opening tonight!

3. Shaw Is Always a Weekend Destination - These regular weekend options are always great: 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, Be Bar, and Old Dominion Brewhouse.
