I organize a Wizards fan happy hour group. We hold a 1 hour happy hour before each home Wizards game at a different bar in Chinatown/PennQuarter each time. The idea is for Wizards fans to interact with each other, as well as to explore the city around the arena.
Tonight we are going to Carmine’s [425 7th Street, NW] to check out their happy hour. The Wizards also gave me (through a contest) a $50 gift card so I’m going to cover a bunch of appetizers for our group. We meet up between 6pm-7pm.”
“Washington Harbour is preparing its outdoor ice rink for the season and expected to open for public skating by Friday, November 14, weather permitting. Until March 2015, the rink will be open every day, including all holidays, for recreational skating and also offers individual and group lessons for all skill levels, birthday parties, private events, and special events. This will be the rink’s third season of operation, receiving accolades and thousands of skaters since it opened in late 2012. Located on the Georgetown waterfront at 3000 K Street, NW, Washington, DC, the Washington Harbour Ice Rink has iconic views of the Potomac River and a glittering nighttime atmosphere, surrounded by restaurants for indoor and outdoor dining. At 11,800 square feet, the Washington Harbour Ice Rink is the largest outdoor skating venue in Washington, DC
“The Postseason excitement is so contagious, even our Spinosaurus is showing his Natitude! This fierce fan is currently on display outside of the National Geographic Museum, along M Street. He is also the cover model of the October issue of National Geographic magazine.
A few emails we’ve already received this morning and yesterday – for the photo above:
“Outside NatGeo. Go Nats!”
“In honor of the upcoming playoffs, I thought I’d share a pic of my lovely creation which has been hung on the front door of our Petworth home since opening day for the Nats! Enjoying some October baseball!”
“Maya in Navy Yard is ready for a Nats win tomorrow with her gnome hat!”

“Mayor Vincent C. Gray and the D.C. Council announced today that the District’s city hall, the John A. Wilson Building, will go red in support of the Washington Nationals’ Major League Baseball playoff run. Beginning tonight, Wednesday, October 1, the District will illuminate the building with red exterior lighting for as long as the Nationals remain in the playoffs. Mayor Gray and the D.C. Council turned the building red the last time the Nationals were in the playoffs in 2012.
“As a lifelong baseball fan, I am extremely proud of the Nats. They’ve had an amazing season with some incredible individual performances – but what impresses me the most is how they play as a team. I’m excited to cheer them on all the way to the District’s first World Series win since 1924,” said Mayor Gray. “And starting tonight, we’re going to turn the Wilson Building red to show everyone that the District is behind them 100 percent.”
The Nationals, as champions of the National League East Division, will play Game 1 of their National League Division Series against the winner of tonight’s National League Wild Card play-in game on Friday, October 3 at Nationals Park. Mayor Gray is scheduled to attend.”
