Join us at Hawthorne (1336 U St. NW) TONIGHT (Thursday) to show your support for our "Men in Blue" and Ready, Willing & Working! The purchase of a $5 wristband will get you drink specials all night and the funds raised go directly to providing supportive services for program participants.
The supportive services RWW has established, including case management meetings, relapse prevention, Metro fare cards and other incentives, provide the tools necessary for the "Men in Blue" to gain the self-esteem and confidence they need to be successful.
We will also be offering a special discount to happy hour attendees for admission to the 9th Annual Magic & Miracles Gala, which will take place Wednesday, November 30th at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. Hope to see you there!

The process for creating a Main Street designation for the Eastern Market corridor is well underway and likely to be in effect by November 1st. Community members, including Eastern Market merchants, business owners, community leaders and residents gathered at The Hill Center last week to hear the Market Row Association discuss the Main Street process.
The 7th Street Merchant Row Association will complete and submit a proposal by the September 8th deadline; the city will then announce their decision in October, which gives the program a November 1st start date.
For more information on the proposed Main Street, click here.
"I’m at Pineapple and Pearls, the alluring new neighbor of no-reservations Rose’s Luxury, sibling restaurants brought to life on Barracks Row by native son Aaron Silverman. Two years ago, Bon Appetit hailed the older retreat as the Best New Restaurant in America. Since April, the spinoff has been redefining what it means to be a fine-dining restaurant."
In his 17 years as a food critic for the Washington Post, Tom Sietsema has never awarded his high rating to a new restaurant - until yesterday. Click here to read the entire review - congratulations Pineapple and Pearls!
The National Park Service (NPS) is commemorating their Centennial with the Find Your Park campaign. People across America are finding their park every day and the NPS is encouraging visitors to share their stories.
Inspired by this campaign, DC Circulator recently launched a summer campaign to encourage riders, DC residents and visitors, to find their park using the DC Circulator. Titled "My Route, My Park," the Circulator's campaign focuses on the six routes servicing seven national parks in the District.
Take the DC Circulator on your next visit to DC's National Parks and win prizes! Post your photo, tag the @DCCirculator and include the #MyRouteMyPark and #FindYourPark hashtags. Winners will receive collectible NPS prizes. The fun starts now and ends with a final drawing on Thursday, August 26th! Click here for more details.
