I'm so honored that Ron's asked me to take over this blog. As a college student, I'm always curious about free events going on around the district. I hope to get more university students involved with this blog and attending some of the events listed here. It's always great when DC natives and transplants to the area alike can discover new things about the city we live in!
I'm always open to listing new events, or if you've attended an event recently and would like to share comments on it I can be contacted here or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
