T-22 Days for REI Flagship Store Grand Opening and Block Party Oct. 21-23

Click here for the live countdown


From REI:

Join REI [1146 3rd Street, NE] for 3-day Block Party to celebrate the Grand Opening of our DC Flagship store! Friday we’ll open the doors at 10am with some big band fanfare (hint, hint) and DJs keep the party going all day.

Saturday and Sunday we’ll expand the block party to a main stage with live bands, Outdoor School classes, beer gardens, s’mores, screen printing, a climbing wall, and more. Saturday’s music starts with a family band at 10am and then goes on with live go-go, a Beatles cover band, and plenty of DJ sets (Biz Markie at 3pm!).

Sunday we’re teaming up with the Kingman Island Bluegrass and Folk Festival to bring you a day of live bluegrass and Americana on the main stage. All 3 days the first 500 people in line receive a custom DC Camelbak bottle with a gift card inside. We’ll have free breakfast and coffee for all each morning. Everybody who attends all weekend can help REI decide how to split up $100,000 among 5 regionally focused outdoor non-profits!

TRANSPORTATION NOTE: there are several surface lots in the neighborhood, but we suggest you arrive by metro, bus, or bike. Our store entrance is adjacent to the NoMa/Gallaudet Metro station and the Metropolitan Branch Trail.”

There’s a reason Well-Paid Maids has hundreds of positive reviews from happy clients.
