Fourplay: A Night of One Act Plays with The Coil Project

Plays written by: Anindya De, Emily Mullin, and Erica Smith
Directed by: Anindya De, Rebecca Fischler, Erik Harrison, and Erica Smith
Where: Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, 545 7th St., SE, Washington, DC 20003
When: April 24-April 25

I. Those Are Your Only Options
II. 2-for-1
III. Speak
IV. #sexts (a tease)

Love is weird. We’ve all been there. Awkwardly meeting a significant other’s ex. Splitting a bottle of wine with the guy you loved who broke your heart. Getting caught up in an office romance. Sharing your relationship woes with a best friend.

And of course a revolver, ‘90s sit-com references, a mysterious disease and a Welsh corgi named Elinor Dashwood. Oh… oh wait, that’s not what your last date looked like? Oh… no, no me neither. Definitely not.

On April 24 and 25, The Coil Project will be presenting Fourplay, four short plays on love, romance and… whatever happened between you and that girl who is in your cell phone as “Megan from Friday night.” Shows are at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop (CHAW) at 8PM April 24, and at 6PM and 8PM on April 25. Join us after the 8PM shows for a celebration with cast and crew. Coming to our 6PM show on the 25th? The party starts early with a pre-show reception at 5PM in CHAW. It’ll be more fun than that guy you met on Tinder. Heck, take him too.

And we’ll be presenting a tease from our Summer 2015 Capital Fringe show!

Tickets at http://thecoilproject.org for $15

Is Bergami's Pizza closed for good?

Over the last week or so I’ve noticed that the Bergami’s Pizza at Rhode Island Row appears to be closed. I didn’t see any signs, and it appears that they’ve up and gone for good. Did the store go out of business? I loved their pizza, and it always seemed full of customers whenever I went in. Any insight about what’s going on there would be great.

DC Arts Center "Experience Auction" fundraiser

The DC Arts Center third annual “Experience Auction” Fundraiser

The things you get to do are better than stuff you have to have.

The DC Arts Center, one of Washington, DC’s most respected art galleries, is continuing its tradition of proving that experiences are indeed more valuable than things. While the best things in life may not be free, doing is quite often better than having. The event will raise necessary funds for the DC Arts Center, one of Washington, DC’s most unique arts centers.

Many fundraising auctions are a basic live auction and silent auction format featuring donated works of art. The DCAC Experience Auction offers unique, once in a lifetime experiences. Offering experiences as opposed to static works of art helps prevent distortion of an artwork’s fair market value.

Experiences up for auction include a behind the scenes tour of a Theater, an in-home performance by a vocalist, the opportunity to collaborate with guerrilla painters, and many more one-of-a-kind experiences created just for the Experience Auction.

The auction takes place Thursday May 21st, 2015 starting at 7pm at the historic Kennedy-Warren building located at 3133 Connecticut Ave, NW Washington, DC 20008. There will be a DJ spinning great music, h’ors doeuvres, live performances, the silent and live auction, and a cash bar. Valet parking will be provided.

Join us in collecting memories all while supporting a great cause. Tickets for the DCAC Experience Auction are $90 for DCAC members and $120 for non-members. The non-member fee includes a membership to DCAC. Tickets can be purchased at: http://bitly.com/1O7UMh4

About DC Arts Center:

Located at 2438 18th Street, NW in Washington, DC the District of Columbia Arts Center serves the Washington, DC area by presenting high-caliber challenging works, encouraging professionalism among artists, and by providing a forum for education and cultural exchange. DCAC was founded in 1989 as an alternative arts center for local artists in response to eroding support for local artists. Since then our 800 square foot gallery and 50 seat black box theater have been a hub of creativity in the visual and performing arts. Artists of all types, including poets, painters, actors, storytellers, sculptors and performance artists, have been drawn to DCAC.

finding parking in Dupont Circle

I live in Dupont and I have a young woman come and clean my apartment once a month. The last two times she came, she couldn’t find any parking and had to leave. I’d like to keep using her, but this is getting ridiculous. I think she only spends about 1-2 hours in my place cleaning, and I wonder if she can just park on the no parking side of our street with her hazards on. Has anyone else had this issue? Any possible solutions?

If there is no solution, I may have to switch to another cleaning service, perhaps one that drops off and picks up their cleaners.

Accountant for Tax Help

Hey Popville world:

I find myself on April 14 trying to file my overly complicated tax return. Can anyone recommend a trustworthy, affordable accountant in DC? Thought I could finagle it on TurboTax but I’ve lived in 2 states this year and did some independent contract work so it’s become very confusing. Would really appreciate a referral! Thanks
