New Jersey at M, Looking North-Northwest (see more)

Highlighting doings of interest over the next few days in convenient bullet form:
* Thursday is BID day, with three separate activities, starting with the Capitol Riverfront Farmers Market at New Jersey and M (up behind the fences) from 3 to 7 pm. Then there's the "Front Run Club," a new gathering for runners of all fitness levels that meets every Thursday night at 6 pm at Second and M. And of course it's movie night, as the Ultimate Underdog Movie Series continues with Shrek, with festivities starting at Second and M at 7:30 pm and the movie itself beginning around 8:45 pm. There will also be a hula hooping "Hoops Jam" before the movie.
* The Summer of Strasburg (SoS) continues with the phenom's second home start, on Friday night against the White Sox. Game time is 7:05 pm, with the gates at Nationals Park opening at 4:30 pm, and the swarms of sudden baseball fans descending on the neighborhood soon after. Be prepared for big crowds on Metro, roads, sidewalks, bike lanes, etc.
* Also at Nationals Park this weekend is "Nats U," which is being held on Saturday and offers women ages 15 and up "the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of America's favorite pastime from the experts at the Washington Nationals." For $50, female fans can sign up for either beginner or advanced sessions, and also receive tickets to Saturday's 4:10 pm game against the White Sox.
* There's also a series of additional events and promotions at the ballpark tied into Father's Day (you DID remember that Sunday is Father's Day, right?), which you can read about here.

I'm a Nats fan who grew up a White Sox fan and I am pretty surprised at the high number of tickets sold for this weekend already. Maybe all the Pale Hose fans are showing numbers. I obviously figured Friday sales would be strong, but I didn't think the Ryan Zimmerman bobble head would be responsible for Saturday's better than expected ticket sales. I've been here two years and Saturday will be the first time I can remember the Nats being on Fox in the 4:05 time slot, so this will be nice.

Pat, are you implying that the Nats have no fans or that nobody would want to watch them play? This is an exciting team to watch in a beautiful ballpark.


Jason says: (6/21/10 8:54 AM)
Jimbo, not to speak for Pat, but I don't think he was implying that. However, attendance of 21k per game speaks for itself.

Yes, there are Nats fans, yes, their ranks will probably continue to grow with Strasburg here and the organization building a contender for the future. For now, if bobbleheads or the Chi Sox can bring an extra 10-15k out to the park, I'm all for it. Let's not forget what became of the Senators Parts I & II.

Surely Health and Human Services can find a better spokesperson for healthy living than a character who is a walking advertisement for McDonald's, sugary cereals, cookies and candy
