[Ed. Note: Or better depending on your perspective.]
It will soon become even more difficult for visitors to park on-street near DC’s shiny new Waterfront.

“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.

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.
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!
