Any suggestions for a restaurant in Dupont Circle for a holiday luncheon this December? I’m planning for two groups of people.
1 – Small, shy group of 8-10 people, no private room or big to-do needed. Rasika West End has been our go-to the past 2 years, but I’d love to find something new.
2 – Medium, outgoing group of 15 people. I’ll never be able to top last year’s party at Miracle on 7th Street (the true miracle was getting in the door), but if there’s anything hip and new within about 5-10 minutes of Dupont, that would be great.
Runners take your mark! In an effort to make fitness a fun and engaging activity, VIDA Fitness is hosting its second annual 5K Run/Walk on Sunday, October 23 at East Potomac Park. The local fitness club chain will donate proceeds from the event to Thrive DC – a local non-profit organization committed to preventing and ending homelessness in the DC area. Local radio personalities Tommy McFly, Kelly Collis and Jen Richer, co-hosts of 94.7 Fresh FM’s The Tommy Show, will emcee the race and awards ceremony. The 5K Run/Walk is open to the public and participants can submit their event registrations at: http://www.vidathrive5k.com.
Nicknamed Hains Point by locals, East Potomac Park’s flat running course, which circles the Potomac River, will again serve as the backdrop for the event. Known for being both dog and stroller friendly, VIDA’s 5K Run/Walk is geared toward families, kids, weekend athletes and fitness enthusiasts alike.
Runners and spectators are encouraged to bring new socks on race day to donate to Thrive. During bag drop and check in, Thrive DC will have a table and donation box to collect new socks of all sizes and styles. The Thrive DC sock drive is open to anyone and held at all VIDA locations beginning August 23 – exactly two months before the 5K Run/Walk.
Events and prizes for the race include:
♣ Pre-Race Happy Hour Packet Pick-Up at Penthouse Pool Club-U Street on Friday, October 21 from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. – light fare and discounted beverages with funds benefitting Thrive DC.
♣ Poolside cabana rental with bottle service from the Penthouse Pool Club.
♣ VIDA memberships, personal training sessions and guest passes.
♣ Gift cards from Capitol City Brewing Company, Aura Spa and Bang Salon.
Parking space is limited at East Potomac Park, so VIDA encourages race participants to leave their cars at home. Convenient methods of transportation include walking, Capital Bikeshare, DC Metro, Uber or taxicab.

Space is limited, RSVP required.
Special Halloween edition of Microbes After Hours!
What happens to us after we die? A decomposing corpse becomes its own mini-ecosystem, hosting insects, scavengers and multitudes of microbes. Microbes from the environment, the corpse, as well as the insects and scavengers are blended together and work to recycle tissues back to their constituents. Dr. Jennifer DeBruyn (Associate Professor, The University of Tennessee) will discuss the fascinating process of human decomposition, and how scientists are using that information to inform forensic science, livestock mortality management and fossilization.
Can’t attend in person? We will also be live streaming on YouTube.

In these grave times, we all have many questions. The future seems uncertain and it’s unclear who has the answers. Therefore, a quorom has been called and great minds once again will meet to decide once and for all where the truth falls on such quandries as, “Should buffalo wings be dipped in ranch or blue cheese?” So take heed and allow these esteemed fellows of wit and wisdom to show us just how right or wrong they are on the toughest questions of the day.

Does anyone know what happened to the tiny free library on Florida Ave at First St NW? It’s been a few weeks since I noticed it’s absence, and I’m beginning to strongly suspect that my partner’s assurances it was “away for repairs” is more like “living on a farm up north with lots of space to run.” As of last night, some intrepid book trader had simply left some books on the remaining post where the library used to sit.
