You, Sir, Are My Hero Vol. 5


Thanks to a reader for sending:

“After the past few months on a serious deadline at work that finished up yesterday, I decided to venture out to my usual lunch spot in Farragut Square and was welcomed back by the sounds of some John Coltrane and Keith Jarrett playing on a series of small speakers and an iPod set atop the electrical closet. It made a gorgeous day even more so, and I’d like to express some appreciation to this gentleman for taking the time to make the many park lunch-goers’ time away from the office just that much better. You sir, are my hero.”

You can see previous nominees here. Should you spot a quiet act of heroism along these lines please do send an email with a brief description and the neighborhood where it was witnessed to [email protected] or tweet @PoPville.

  • What a great post! So nice to see some appreciation here and how what may be a small thing to some helps brighten the day for others 🙂

    Meanwhile, is that part of Farragut Fridays? Is that still going on now that we’re in October? I loved their events/chairs/tables/music/etc. when I happened upon them this summer.

    • He was not affiliated with the Farragut Fridays which is through the Golden Triangle BID and ended in September. Though I didn’t get his name, he’s a young musician who just wanted to share some good music at a reasonable volume with others in the park. Looking forward to the next time he swings by.

    • @jzdc is correct – the gentleman was not affiliated with our programming. And it is true, Farragut Fridays have ended for the summer. @wpk_dc Thanks for the kind words – we are so glad you enjoyed the events! Hope to see you outside in 2016.
