From a press release:

“Joy is in the air this holiday season and CityCenterDC is thrilled to once again present a delightful experience for the entire community. After the success of the life-sized igloo in 2017 and the Winter in Washington exhibit in 2018, which featured ice replicas of iconic national monuments up to 12 feet tall, CityCenterDC continues its tradition of immersive large-scale ice installations by creating the largest clear ice maze in the United States. From December 13th-15th guests will have the opportunity to get lost in a frozen labyrinth with towering 7-feet-tall walls, constructed with more than 110,000 pounds of clear ice. Read More

From a press release:

“Curious folk dancers from all over the country will converge on Dupont Circle on January 4 and 5 for Bal DC, the United States’ first festival for bal folk, French traditional dancing. The American bal folk scene has been underground for decades, so the announcement has brought musicians and dancers from as far as Texas, Washington State, and Scotland.

Bal folk festivals in Western Europe draw crowds of thousands. You might think you’re at a pop music festival except for the instruments: bands rev up dancers with bagpipes, accordions, and hurdy-gurdies, buzzing string instruments played by turning a crank. Nights feature a mix of dances, including partner dances, circles, and chains. Bal DC will be more intimate than European festivals, but will combine the same thrilling music with simple, satisfying dances. Read More

“We’re producing a comedy show every other Sunday at 6pm at Reliable Tavern. It’s called Long Story Short and the idea is to give the city’s local comics the opportunity and audience to work on developing their comedic story telling skill. It’s a different set of muscles from just telling jokes and we don’t have a show in town that encourages it.”

From this Sunday’s Eventbrite:

“Long Story Short is the Sunday comedy show you’ve been waiting for and it’s at Reliable Tavern so you don’t even need to leave the neighborhood and you can be back at home by dinner. Read More
