Here's what's come across the transom events-wise this week. And remember to keep an eye on my Events Calendar
down the right side of the JDLand home page to be sure you're not missing anything coming up.
* VALENTINE'S LOOMING
: On Saturday, Feb. 1, there's a Speed Dating at the Yards
shindig being held at the Boilermaker Shops
from 7 to 9 pm. Tickets are $30, and can be purchased here
, though the site notes that they have more
men than women
women than men currently signed up, so dudes, get moving. (But points are deducted for the location being listed as "Washington Navy Yards," which is off-base in so many ways.) It's being run by Professionals in the City.
* VAN NESS ES
: A reminder that the new Van Ness Parent Group
is holding a community meeting on Feb. 1 to get supporters together to talk about the elementary school's scheduled reopening for the 2015-16 school year. The meeting is at 11 am at Capitol Hill Tower, 1000 New Jersey Ave SE.
* NATS TICKETS AND PROMOS
: The team has announced that single-game tickets go on sale on Feb. 27 at 10 am. The lineup of promotional events
has also been released, with the three NatsLive post-game concerts scheduled for June 5, July 19, and Aug. 16 (acts to be announced). There's also four Pups in the Park dates. (Charlie and George are once again not amused about the lack of a Felines at the Field day.)
