From a press release:

“Sunday, September 24, in Southwest Washington, DC, will see the arrival of the eighth annual DC State Fair from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. At Waterfront Station, the public is invited to enjoy contests that crown the city’s best growers, crafters, and cooks; performances from local musicians and dance troupes; and more than 55 food, art, and craft vendors showcasing and selling their wares.

This daylong celebration of all things homegrown is unique among local fairs and festivals: it is run entirely by volunteers, is free to attend, and is held in different neighborhoods from year to year, making the Fair accessible to all DC residents and visitors. This year, the DC State Fair has partnered with the Southwest Business Improvement District to bring the event to Waterfront Station. (more…)

From an email:

This Saturday is the 10th annual Cantina Cup Regatta.  It’s a fun day of on-the-water racing followed by the best afterparty on the East Coast.  The Cantina Cup regatta is DC Sail’s annual fundraiser that supports their youth scholarship fund that helps area kids get out on our local waterways.

DC Sail’s 65 foot schooner, American Spirit, will serve as the spectator boat for those who want to view the regatta action from the water.  It is sponsored by Corona and tickets include the option to attend the afterparty at Cantina Marina.”

From an email:

Cantina Marina is hosting “Love for Love City,” a fundraiser for St. John, USVI, the hardest hit US territory by Hurricane Irma. On Wednesday Sept. 20, 10 percent of all sales and $2 of every Painkiller (the official cocktail of the Virgin Islands) sold will go to the St. John Community Foundation, a charity set up in the wake of Hurricane Hugo in 1989.

The promotion is valid all day (11:30 to 10 pm), but an informal group of “Friends of St. John,” who’ve found each other on Facebook in the aftermath of Irma, are gathering between 4 and 9 to cry, laugh, reminisce and rally hope and funds for the future of St John. All are welcome!

So grab your friends, family and coworkers for lunch, happy hour or dinner at a restaurant whose Painkillers (yes, they are topped freshly grated nutmeg!), fish tacos and dockside location will have you in a St. John state of mind. Together we are #StJohnStrong!

NOTE: the restaurant is going on hiatus in October so don’t miss this chance to show your appreciation for Cantina Marina too!**”

First, there is no God.

Second, thanks to all who messaged us.

From Cantina Marina’s Facebook:

“It’s with a heavy heart that we announce the end of Cantina as we know it. Our last day of operation will be October 28, and then we’ll be gone until 2020-2021 with a new pier, a new coat of paint, and thankfully new bathrooms. It’s been a heck of a ride, and we’ll talk more about things later, but we hope to see you all soon.”

Thanks to Tim for sending: “They installed the Anthem sign facing the river at the Wharf.” Ed. Note: They open October 12th with a sold out Foo Fighters show. But just looking at the photo has me rather giddy and anticipating going to a show there. Also, I’m going to Sturgill Simpson at Merriweather on Friday – so let’s take it easy today and simply talk music – what’s the last concert you went to and where was it? For those who have future tickets – what’s the next one you’re going to and where is it?
