Whoa, I hadn’t seen this video over the weekend. Thanks to Movoly for sending our way:

“There was a false alarm of an active shooter at the Capital Pride Parade today in Washington DC that sent crowds into panic. Thankfully everyone is ok… Stay safe!”

The Washington Post reported:

A man with a BB gun angry at another man for hitting his partner allegedly set off events that led hundreds of people to flee the Capital Pride Parade in Washington on Saturday, fearing a mass shooter, D.C. police said Sunday.”

From Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton’s office:

“Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) announced that today she introduced the Marijuana in Federally Assisted Housing Parity Act of 2019, which would permit the use of marijuana in federally assisted housing, including public housing and Section 8 housing, in compliance with the marijuana laws of the state where the property is located. Under current federal law, the users of drugs that are illegal under federal law, including marijuana, are prohibited from being admitted into federally assisted housing. Federal law also allows landlords to evict residents of federally assisted housing for drug use. Norton says that individuals living in federally assisted housing should not be denied admission, or fear eviction, for using a product legal in their state. Both adult use and medical use of marijuana is currently legal in 33 states and the District of Columbia and over 90 percent of Americans support legalized medical marijuana. (more…)

From a press release:

“The seventh annual Awesome Con returns to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center from Friday, April 26, to Sunday, April 28. Before then, guests can visit outstanding area restaurants and bars, including The Capital Burger, City Tap Penn Quarter, Espita Mezcaleria, Iron Horse Tap Room, Jackpot, Lost & Found, Morris American Bar, Moxy Washington, DC Downtown, and Penn Social.

Hop Bot is generously hopped with funky Citra and juicy Mosaic hops. Atlas adds wheat malt to the grain bill of the pale ale to give the beer a robust body and silky mouth feel that perfectly complements the floral and citrus flavors from two of the brewery’s favorite hops. The blend was derived to play off the iconic robot face that has become emblematic of Awesome Con since it began in 2012 and will be used on the cans and tap handles at participating locations.

“We’re so excited to partner with Awesome Con on this exclusive beer,” said Atlas Brew Works Founder & CEO Justin Cox. “Atlas can’t wait to host attendees at the brewery and for the DC community to try this stellar collaboration.” Ron Brister, Vice President of Events at LeftField Media, LLC, producer of Awesome Con, added that, “This convention has always been about the local fans of all kinds of pop culture. It seemed appropriate as we keep growing to partner with an outstanding brand like Atlas to bring some local flavor to the fans.”
