Every few weeks your Prince of Petworth, Heather Goss of DCist, and myself, your newly anointed Lord of Petworth, get together for a happy hour or a deliciously boozey lunch. The Prince and Heather chat about the DC blog scene…and I pinch myself to stay awake and pretend it is interesting.
Heather curates and coordinates a lot of fantastic photography shows, if you haven’t seen one or participated, you are really missing something fun.
If you are a shutterbug type, there is only a week left to enter your photos in the annual DCist Exposed Photography Show contest. Now in its fifth year, Exposed features the best of local amateur photography. Winners get their framed photo hung in the Long View Gallery, greeted with an opening reception in mid-March (last year saw over 1200 visitors the first night), and FREE PIE FOR LIFE. (Okay, I’m kidding about the pie, but it is still pretty cool.) For just a $5 entry fee, you can enter three photos. Deadline is January 12; winners will be announced on January 19. Here is where to go for rules and more info.
There is also an associated Kickstarter project to create a magazine of previous Exposed winners, which would look great on your coffee table (or at least do a nice job of covering up the nicks and stains on your coffee table).
