Since it is *nearly* December and I am fairly new to DC, I was wondering if there are any must-see holiday events that I should go to! Also, I would really like to attend a performance of the Nutcracker, has anyone seen the Washington Ballet version?
New striping started going down to extend the bike lane from Columbia Road to at least Euclid. It also cuts down the car lanes from two to one, with I’m guessing some left turn lanes. As of this morning’s commute I didn’t see any signs pointing out the change. I also couldn’t find anything online where the change was announced.
In the darkest winter days, one young man discovers that he has the power to bring light and inspire joy in even the most surprising places. This holiday show is an uplifting, delightful spectacle that will amaze the whole family. Featuring acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, and other dazzling performances – the spirit is sure to be contagious! Start a new and unique holiday tradition by coming to the circus! Appropriate for all ages.

It’s official people: we live in the post-truth era. Look it up, I’ll wait. So how do you determine what’s real and what isn’t? How do you sift through the information overload? Well, here’s a good place to start. We’ve got six highly knowledgeable and funny people. Each of them is going to inform you a little bit on ten different topics. You, the audience, decide what’s reality and what’s horse bologna. If you guess correctly, they have to face the consequences. And you can bet the stakes will be high.

No Taxation Without Representation
Washington residents can walk past the Capitol every day, but they still have no vote in Congress. When DC was established in 1791, Congress gave itself sole jurisdiction over the territory, and increasing numbers of residents have been fighting for representation ever since. After the dissolution of the Control Board in 2001, this movement culminated in the passage of a statehood referendum in November 2016—just as national political tides began to turn. With the future uncertain, it is up to Washingtonians to reflect on our 225 years of history, look to the future and ask, ‘Are we ready?’
What is Humanitini?
Humanitini is an exciting happy hour event where Washington’s movers, shakers, and creators come together to think and drink. In honor of D.C.’s 225th anniversary, this year’s Humanitini series has celebrated our city’s colorful past, so that we can appreciate the present and plan for the future. Join us to engage with your peers, meet your neighbors, and learn from experts about what makes our city a unique place to live and play.
