The calendar may say March, but the current temperature and the activity in my inbox tell me that spring is springing into action. Here's the first wave of events to pass along:
* JDLAND HAPPY HOUR: Don't forget! It's tomorrow (Thursday, March 10), at 5:30 pm at Scarlet Oak, at New Jersey and K Streets, SE. And given the weather forecast, perhaps we'll be al fresco.
* ROCK AND ROLL MARATHON: This Saturday, March 12, is the annual Rock n Roll marathon, which brings with it not only thousands of runners but numerous road closures. #NeCaBaRY gets off pretty easily (compared to areas north of the freeway and in Southwest), with just southbound South Capitol Street closed from E Street across the Douglass Bridge. See the site for details.
* COFFEE WITH CHUCK: Well, it isn't exactly a spring-has-sprung event, but still worth including on a calendar roundup that the next monthly meeting for residents interested in the latest Virginia Avenue Tunnel doings is on March 16, at 8 am at the CSX office at 861 New Jersey Ave. SE (RSVP here).
* PSA 106: The monthly meeting on issues of public safety is scheduled for Wednesday, March 16, at 7 pm at 200 I St. SE.
* ST. PAT'S CONCERT AT THE FAIRGROUNDS: Another year of events at the Fairgrounds just north of Nats Park kicks off on Thursday, March 17, with a free St. Patrick's Day concert featuring The Pietasters and opening act Warden.
* CHERRY BLOSSOM BEER AND WINE FESTIVAL: Speaking of drinking (what, like St. Patrick's Day isn't a drinking holiday?), the Cherry Blossom Beer and Wine Festival and its 100+ beverage options comes to the parking lots at 1st and N Street on March 26th from 1 to 4 pm. Tickets can be had for $35 until noon tomorrow (March 10), and $45 after that.
And then, before you know it, it'll be April, and the red-uniformed neighbors will return home from their time in Florida, first on Saturday, April 2 at 12:05 pm for an exhibition vs. the Minnesota Twins*, then for the home opener on April 7 at 4:05 pm vs. the Marlins. Then there's the Southwest Waterfront Fireworks Festival on April 9, and a few days later Truckeroo will begin its 2016 season at the Fairgrounds on April 15. And then both the DC Beer Festival and the Sakura Matsuri festival on April 16. And much more, I'm sure.
*There's also supposedly a game vs. the Twins on April 1 at 6:05 pm just for season ticket holders, but you can't pull that April Fool's stuff on me, Nationals!

The 6:05 april fools game is legit, unless the Nats took the joke so far that they mailed us all fake tickets...

Maybe someone going to the Coffee with Chuck meeting can ask them to improve the signage for 3rd st southbound being closed at the freeway.

- The sign letting 3rd southbound drivers know was not until just after G st and wasn't very obvious, so many people didn't realize it.

- I don't know if there was a sign on Virginia Ave westbound prior to 4th street, but there were several cars this morning that wanted to make a left onto 3rd st from Virginia Ave who were forced to turn right to avoid going on the highway. This not only made things more of pain for them, but resulted in increased traffic due to the confusion and people stopping in the middle of the intersection.

If the game is legit, I'm confused about it.

"It's an exclusive opportunity to see the Nationals back in D.C., before anyone else."

Season ticket holders already have their tickets before the regulars go on sale.

Thanks to all who came out for Happy Hour tonight! Hope I got to talk to everyone who came in (the bar was more crowded than I expected it to be).

We'll do it again before too long, if people are interested, maybe at Bonchon or Big Stick. A moveable feast. :-)
