Lawyer Recommendations?

Hi forum-In a million years, never thought I’d have to ask this, but unfortunately I’m looking for recommendations for a lawyer in the DC area who has specialty with healthcare malpractice. I’m looking for someone reputable, and not just an ambulance chaser, if anyone has any experience in this, or knows who to turn to? Thank you!

Inappropriate Flirtation at Brixton!

RANT: So, the last few times I have gone out dancing at Brixton with my girls, some random boy in a T-SHIRT (??!) has approached me with a beer trying to get me to dance with him. Ewwwww. If I wanted to dance with a boy, I would approach him! LEAVE ME ALONE ON GIRLS’ NIGHT! Also, at least buy me a vodka soda. Could someone please tell the men in this city to stop being so CREEPY. Has anyone else had this experience?

RAVE: The DJ was great!

Richmond, CA Crime Fellowship Program

I am not sure if this is an appropriate use of the forums (if it is, feel free to remove it), but I saw an article today on CNN about the Richmond, CA crime fellowship program that the DC program was based on. Given the heated discussion about the D.C. Bill when it was announced, I thought others might be interested as well.

Free Outdoor Summer Shakespeare

The Fat and Greasy Citizens Brigade’s
Fourth Annual Production:
“The Tempest” by William Shakespeare

Washington, DC, June 23, 2016- The Fat and Greasy Citizens Brigade (FGC), a Washington, DC based theatre company, is bringing back free outdoor theatre to the city for its fourth year.

This summer we will be mounting our production of William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest,” with performances running for three weekends on June 9,10,11,16,17,18, 23, and 24, 2016. Performances will be held nightly at 8 p.m. at Grace Episcopal Church in Georgetown (1041 Wisconsin Ave NW, Washington, DC 20007). Audience members will be able to lay out blankets, pack a picnic and enjoy a free performance out under the stars. In case of inclement weather the show will be performed indoors in the church Sanctuary. Doors will open at 7 p.m. for picnicking and relaxing pre-performance. Some concessions and fun FGC swag will be available for sale on site. For additional information, please visit our website: http://www.fgcitizens.org.

FGC is the resident theater company of the Grace Episcopal Church in Georgetown and a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non‐profit arts service organization. Contributions for the charitable purposes of Outdoor Summer Shakespeare must be made payable to “Fractured Atlas” and are tax‐deductible to the extent permitted by law. Donations are accepted here: https://igg.me/at/fgcitizens2016/x.

The company’s mission is to provide accessible theater to all, and we do so by providing free outdoor productions of the works of William Shakespeare each summer. DC has so many great free outdoor summer activities like Screen on the Green and Jazz in the Sculpture Garden; we are bringing free outdoor theatre to the city.

The Fat and Greasy Citizens Brigade founders, Heather Cipu (Artistic Director) and Alexis Truitt (Managing Director) have both been working in the DC theatre community for many years. They have done everything from acting, to producing, directing, costumes, props, lights, and sound. Starting a company together has been a dream of theirs for a while and they are both extremely excited to have that dream become a reality.

Historic tile search

Hi all,
I saw the tile in the photo a few years ago at the George Eastman House/Museum. I’m wondering if anyone has ideas about finding something similar. I’ve done some exhaustive searches to no avail. I’d also like something similar if people have ideas. The thing I like are the symmetrical pattern, the very small grout lines, and the fact that it’s white with dark grout.
Thank you!
