“Hill Family Biking Anniversary Ride & Block Park” is April 27th!

“Dear PoPville,

Hill Family Biking, a group of friends and neighbors that put on monthly family-friendly group bike rides on Capitol Hill started about a year ago and have had thousands of area residents join on rides.

To celebrate, we’re hosting an anniversary ride & block party on April 27th at 4pm and we’d love your help spreading the work about this big event that I’m coining “Open Streets Jr”

Below are some more details about the event

Hill Family Biking turns 1 year old on April 27th! Come celebrate with us on a 4.5 mile ride celebrating the new Potomac Ave and 19th St bike lanes and block party in front of Maury Elementary. All are welcome at the block party whether you participate in the ride or not to enjoy the following:

Face painting
Food trucks
Kid’s biking course (bring your balance bikes!)
Collaborative chalk art by Chalk Riot.
Lots of special guests that have helped make Hill Family Biking a reality.

You can think of the block party as a mini Open Streets with participation from organizations like WABA, Girls in Gear, DC Public Library, Throne Labs (yes we’ll have a working bathroom on site!), goDCgo, Capital Bikeshare and more!

The ride starts in the Maury Elementary Parking Lot on 12th Pl NE at 4pm. The block party starts at 5pm on the 200 block of 13th St.”

Join local sketch comedy legends (in our own minds) Brick Penguin for an evening of live, dark, rip-roaring sketch comedy. See D.C.’s longest-running sketch comedy group do what they do best, when they’re not performing across the country in places such as the terrifying Philadelphia, the gooey Chicago, the M&M Store-y New York City, and the crunchy Seattle.

Now, our last show may or may not have mentioned Taylor Swift, and we may have gotten into some trouble from confused Swifties who thought they scored a $15 ticket to a Taylor Swift concert. So, to apologize and clear up any confusion, we’ve decided to dedicate another show to her. We promise she might or might not appear this time.
