You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. But please no personal attacks and no need to correct people’s grammar. This is a place to vent and/or celebrate things about daily life in DC.

We’ll be back to our normal posting schedule Monday!

From an email:

“Where: Old City Farm & Guild, 925 Rhode Island Ave. NW

When: Every Saturday from Thanksgiving to Christmas. 11/28, 12/5, 12/12, 12/19
10:00-5:00, Trees available until 8:00

Ready for a sensational experience? Every Saturday throughout the holiday season, local artists, crafters, and food purveyors will line the sidewalk in front of Old City Farm and Guild. Paper crafts, clothing, ornaments, DC-themed items, body products, and art prints will be offered alongside tantalizing edibles. A cheering fire, hot apple cider, and the smell of freshly trimmed trees will fill the air. Christmas trees of all sizes will be available, along with other holiday greenery. As the day progresses into evening, live entertainment will take the “stage” in our makeshift, repurposed lot at what was once Shaw Jr. High.

You want to be part of this. Bring the family, bring the dog, bring a warm coat… Come get your tree and enjoy the season with us!”
