From a press release:
“The National Bonsai & Penjing Museum at the U.S. National Arboretum (3501 New York Ave, NE) will host the Aki Matsuri Autumn Festival on November 4, 2017. The day will play host to a number of free and open-to-the-public tours, cultural activities, book signings and vendors as well as a ticketed special evening Moon Viewing ceremony. A few of the free, daytime attractions include Kimono modeling, Taiko drumming, Bonsai demonstrations, behind-the-scenes tours and many hands-on children’s activities. There will be vendors on-site selling Japanese food and drinks as well as bonsai and other Japanese goods.
The festival will be the first major event since the rededication of the Japanese Pavilion on October 6th, and a great opportunity for guests to view the new attraction. (more…)

From the Mayor’s Office:
“Today, as part of #ObviouslyDC Week, Mayor Bowser celebrated Shop Made In DC, a new brick and mortar store and café stocked exclusively with DC brands and concepts. The new storefront operation is a collaborative retail extension of the Made in DC program and is made possible through a partnership with the DC Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD), Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID), Boston Properties, People Make Place, and Neighborhood Restaurant Group (NRG). Just a few days away from Shop Made in DC’s grand opening, the Mayor made the first purchase in the store.
“Those of us who live and work in DC already know that Washingtonians make tremendous products. Now, Shop Made in DC is giving more DC entrepreneurs the opportunity to sell and promote their brands while growing their customer base,” said Mayor Bowser. “When Washingtonians share their talents and creativity with our city, we want to make sure we are doing all we can to support them. Shop Made in DC just made that a little bit easier to do.”
The unique store features a rotating selection of products designed, crafted, built and made in DC, including jewelry, clothing, paper goods, accessories, furniture, and food products. Starting Thursday, customers can shop DC-made items from brands like DISTRICT of CLOTHING, Hollow Work Ceramics, Milks Letterpress, and Mallory Shelter Jewelry. View the Makers List for the complete list of 24 participating brands.
The in-store cafe features a menu of bagels, bialys, and breakfast sandwiches from Bullfrog Bagels, alongside a coffee program by Small Planes Coffee. Shop Made in DC is the first location for the local coffee roaster and the café will offer a full menu of espresso beverages and cold brew. New concepts Dorjee Momo, nomadic Tibetan cuisine from Chef Dorjee Tsering, and Tortilladora, southwestern tacos and sides by Chef Ed McIntosh, will also share space in the Shop Made in DC café, with their own menus available for lunch and dinner. In addition, a selection of RunningByrd Tea, Misfit cold-pressed juices, Thunder Beast craft root beer, and craft kombucha will be available. (more…)

“It’s more important than this,” said Commissioner Mike Silverstein (district 06) in an announcement at the beginning of the October 11 meeting.
