In case you don't have these marked on your calendar, don't forget that there are two concerts at Nats Park this weekend: Jason Aldean
(and Tyler Farr and "Florida Georgia Line") on Friday night and Billy Joel
(and Gavin DeGraw) on Saturday night. Both shows have 8 pm start times.
The Fairgrounds will be open
on both days, even if you aren't going to the concerts and you're just desperate to drink beer and play corn hole in a public setting.
If you want free music, on Friday there's the Yards Park concert series of course, with Jah Works providing the entertainment this week.
In other events news, readers have reported recent activity around the *other* little red building in the neighborhood, the one behind USDOT on the northwest corner of 3rd and Tingey, with what appeared to be automotive representatives on hand most of Wednesday. I'm not sure what is brewing, but a building permit was issued earlier this month for "ONE DAY SPECIAL EVENT FOR BMW SHOW." Anyone have the scoop? (UPDATE:
Sounds like a private event.)
