Bummers and Big Deals (10/4/19)

A round-up of some recent cool things, and a few that suck.

Lots going on, can you keep track of everything? Me neither.

Big Deals

Open Streets on Georgia Avenue takes places on Saturday, Oct. 5th. (Website)

That Washington Nationals game on Tuesday, Oct. 1st. Whoa, finally winning a big playoff game! Now the Nats are down 1-0 to the Dodgers in the NLDS, and play Game 2 tonight. They have a home game on Sunday, Oct. 6th at 7:45pm.

Capital Bikeshare turns nine years old. Wow, did you know that in those nine years I’ve personally taken 5215 rides so far (out of the 25 million total system-wide), while riding 6921 miles (according to the app, but’s it would more since I don’t always ride Point A to Point B)! I must be an enthusiast? (Capital Bikeshare)

The divey Last Call (with $3 beers!) will be opening soon near Union Market. Color me intrigued. (Washingtonian)

La Cosecha (the Latin themed market near Union Market) officially opened on Thursday. Sweet. It’s open Thursday-Sunday. (Website)

Astro Beer Hall is opening in the former Mackey’s Public House space today (Oct. 4th). (Popville)

Speaking of Astros, Astro Lab Brewing Company in Silver Spring turns one. Highly recommend you visit and try the Shakey Isles (Imperial IPA, 8% ABV). (Website)

Your Washington Mystics are in the WNBA Finals! They are currently tied 1-1 (best of 5 games) with the Connecticut Sun. Next game is a road game on Sunday, Oct. 6th at 3:30pm.

Many excellent concerts coming in October! (Top 15 Concerts)


Newseum is closing in December. They definitely need to find a new location, that place is awesome. (Curbed DC)

The Washington Spirit are out of NWSL playoff contention with two games remaining. They had a good run, make sure you check out a game or two next season!

Bar and music venue in Bethesda, Villain & Saint, is closing. (Eater DC)

Iron Horse is closing at the end of October. (Popville)

Bardawg passed away. I hate endings where the beloved dog dies. Hate them. Bardawg laying around Bardo will be missed greatly. RIP. (Bardawg Tribute)
