2nd (East) at L, Looking Northwest (see more)

(It's a guarantee that as soon as I put up a "I won't be posting for a while" entry, something comes down the pike.) As part of the four-day party-packed inauguration celebration, there's going to be a Capitol Riverfront Gala, officially entitled "Sunday Night on the Hill," on January 18 at 70 I Street (the Jefferson at Capitol Yards). Food will be provided by Eighth Street's Cafe 8, and music by "international DJ TFresh." The festivities will start at 8:30 pm, in both indoor and "heated outdoor" spaces (maybe this includes the roof?). Tickets are $110 (which includes food and an open bar), with discounts available for active military members in uniform. Dress code is "creative black tie."
For more information, check the official web site, and the FAQ.

School buses are scheduled to depart canal park on or about 17 January 2009. Once moved, the asphalt will be removed and all lots will be reseeded with grass to serve as a temporary green space until completion of the park redesign. Someone decided the original design by the Seattle based firm will require too much maintenance and does not accommodate community needs for open space. The new design will likely be selected by early fall with construction beginning around the same time. Expected completion date is approximately fall 2010 as construction will take about one year. The design requirements of the park call for something similar to Bryant Park in NYC but will still include some water features. The organization overseeing park design is the Canal Park Development Association.

I'm excited about this park. If it is "like" Bryant Park it would be nice to incorp an ice skating rink for the winter months.

ice skating was stated as a desired goal - - W.C. Smith developer taking the lead

1 - Is this just an enterprising young soul? I didn't know you did party promotion, JD.

2 - "Active duty military service members are encouraged to wear dinner dress uniforms." O rly?
