Thursdays in the District!

Thursdays are alive with a lot of activities in the district.  Here’s my personal list of favorites:
– Ozio Rooftop Thursday as usual – Great place to meet fellow African professionals while listening to great music
– There’s also a screening of The Samaritans from 6pm. More details here.


– The Smithsonian Folklife Festival day 2 will also be underway from 10am to 6pm.

Whatever your flavor you’re sure to have fun tomorrow in the District!  No reason not to! Carpe Diem, friends.

World Cup Viewing Parties

If you’re like me and watch soccer, love it, during the world cup, and need to watch it with a crowd just as enthusiastic, there’s going to be viewing parties for a lot of the African games in the district and its environs.
