Don’t forget! Tomorrow, the Greater Greater Washington happy hour comes to DC as we head to the 2014 Smart Growth Social with Gabe Klein. Join us tomorrow, October 15, from 6:30 to 8:30 at Eastern Market.
Party with Gabe: Join contributors, editors, GGW readers, and a broad swath of smart growth enthusiasts for some drinks, snacks, and lively conversation. For this month’s meetup, we’re joining up with the Coalition for Smarter Growth for their 2014 Smart Growth Social where you can enjoy drinks and pupusas and talk with Gabe Klein!
Ticket presales end tomorrow at noon, but you can buy tickets at the door ($25) with cash, check, or credit card. See you there!
Can’t make it tomorrow night? After the jump, we’ve got NoMa underpass design, a tour of Friendship Heights, the maker movement, and of course, our live chat with David Catania.
A better NoMa underpass: The NoMa BID received 248 submissions when it launched its competition to redesign the underpasses at Florida Avenue and M, L, and K Streets. See the competition finalists on Thursday, October 16, from 6-8 pm and share your two cents to help the competition jury select winners.
Weekend walking: Learn the good, the bad, and the ugly about Friendship Heights with the community activists of Ward3Vision and the Coalition for Smarter Growth this Saturday, October 18, from 10 to noon. The walk will cover both sides of the DC/Maryland line, as well as the history of development in the area. RSVP requested.
Meet the makers: What is the maker movement, and what’s a makerspace? Head over to MLK Library on Monday 10/20 to find out. Learn about 3D printers, 3D scanners, laser cutters, and their impact on the American entrepreneurial scene from an expert panel, from 7-9 pm.
#GGWchat with Catania: Now that we’ve chatted with Muriel Bowser, next Wednesday, October 22, we’ll live chat with her opponent David Catania from 12:30-1:30 pm. Use the hashtag #GGWchat to follow the chat, and propose questions. Or leave your questions in the comments on this post.
