Last year’s birthday cake! Photo by Kian McKellar.

Eight years ago, Greater Greater Washington set out to inform and engage people across the DC area to make it a thriving, inclusive place. On Tuesday, March 8 from 6:30 to 9 pm, we’ll be celebrating at Vendetta, 1212 H Street NE, as we wrap up our reader drive.

You’ll get to meet Greater Greater Washington staff, contributors, readers, and supporters for an evening of drinks, snacks, and conversation.

Vendetta has limited space, so please let us know if you’re coming here.

For those who are interested, we’re also going to run a special GGWash trivia game around 7:45 with questions picked from our 2015 posts. When you arrive, you can sign up to play and form teams. We’ll also have prizes donated by Capital Bikeshare/

goDCgo and Island Press. We ask for a $5 donation to participate.

If you don’t want to play the trivia, don’t worry — you’ll still be able to mingle and talk on the side of the venue that’s not having the trivia. (But we think you’ll find it fun!)

The party is free (and cash bar), but it’s also the end of our reader drive. Please help us hit our $25,000 goal well before the party by making a monthly, yearly, or one-time contribution now:

Getting there

Vendetta is located about a mile east of Union Station and the NoMa-Gallaudet Metro station, both on the Red Line. It’s about a 20-minute walk from either one.

There seems to be a growing chance that the DC Streetcar will be open in time. If it is, you can ride it from Union Station to 13th and H, just a half block away.

Either way, there are also lots of other options. The Metrobus X2 and rush hour X1 stop at 12th and H. The X9 express and B2 stop at 14th and H, and the 90s buses stop at 8th and H. There’s also a Capital Bikeshare station right there at 13th and H, not to mention car2go, Uber, Lyft, Split, and much more.

Thanks for everything you do to support Greater Greater Washington! Don’t forget to RSVP here. Also, check out this recap of our birthday party last year.

And finally, we’d like to thank our sponsors, who are making it possible to throw the party and keep Greater Greater Washington going:
