Today you can dine at local restaurants in support of Columbia Heights Day, but what really is happening at our annual neighborhood celebration next month? It took some searching on its novice website, but I found what is supposed to be a press release (or welcome letter, event overview?). What ever it is, it looks like organizers have stepped it up this year. Here's what you can look forward to on August 29:
10am - free yoga class from Quiet Mind Yoga
11 am - free performances by Flex Mathews (Best Local Hip-Hop Artist of 2009) and the Crimestoppers, Bonjour Ganesh, Clube do Samba, and more on the mainstage
New for this year - play some Guitar Hero courtesy of Best Buy, and see who gets crowned Mr. and Miss Columbia Heights Day at the dog show (for reals). There's even going to be an afterparty! (My guess, dancing upstairs at the Wonderland.)
