“My cat somehow escaped from my house last night while I was sleeping. We live on Quincy Place NW (1st and Florida). She is an average sized tabby with a clipped ear. She can sometimes be shy, but is a total sweetheart. We are devastated and her litter mate especially misses her very much. I can be reached at 240.421.6636. Reward offered if returned!”

From Big Bear:

“We want to take a second and introduce you to our new dinner series.

Chef Quinten Frye of the Big Bear Café is bringing a monthly family-style dinner to Bloomingdale focusing on his in-house craft butchery program.

Featuring items such as the French-Cut Tomahawk pork-chops, roasted bone-in pork belly, cured meats, sausages, and the suckling pig, each night’s menu showcases a “knife to table” approach to sustainably raised meats in a 5 course, wine-paired meal.

The “Wine and Swine” series highlights the best of our collaborative work with local farms and local artisans.

Seating is limited to 20.

80 T Street, NW

It’s finally here: the reception/open house for the much-anticipated release of The Unified Scene Theater.

What’s The Unified Scene Theater? It’s an actual brick-and-mortar comedy theater in the heart of Bloomingdale, one that privileges and catalyzes the highly energized, highly galvanized improvisational comedy scene here in Washington, DC. It’s a permanent home (finally) for those wayward types raised on the collaborative art of improvisational comedy, an art that’s completely transformed comedy as an art form, not just here in America but globally.

What will it do? The Unified Scene will offer improv comedy performances and shows on most nights of the week, and classes and workshops in improv (both beginning and advanced) on others.

But that’s not all: it will also a multi-use performance, rehearsal, event, and meeting space that will also provide training and classes beneficial to performers, writers, and creative thinkers of all kinds. We’re proudly an incubator to DC’s growing art and performance scene, and proudly a “comedy locavore” here in Bloomingdale. (more…)
