Ten years ago, David Alpert created Greater Greater Washington as a place where people could come together to create a stronger, more inclusive, more connected region. Let's kick off the next decade with a bang and wrap up our reader drive Wednesday, March 14 from 6:30 to 9 pm at the Apollo on H Street in DC.

Join Greater Greater Washington staff, contributors, readers, and supporters for an evening of drinks, snacks, and conversation in the lobby of the Apollo, a new apartment building overlooking the H Street corridor located at 600 H Street NE. (You may know it as home to the new H Street Whole Foods.) We'll have food catered by Po Boy Jim's and drinks from a local brewery.

We'll also have speakers from DC, Maryland, and Virginia give a few words — as well as a special surprise.

RSVP today!

The Apollo is located about a 15-minute walk from both Union Station and the NoMa-Gallaudet Metro station, both on the Red Line. You can also take the DC Streetcar from to 5th and H streets NE, one block away. The Metrobus X1/X2 stop at 6th and H, the X9 and 90s buses stop at 8th and H, and there's a Capitol Bikeshare station right across the street.

Our birthday party will also celebrate a (hopefully) successful reader drive. We're aiming to raise $35,000 to keep GGWash going strong. If you haven't donated yet, please do! (In honor of our 10th anniversary, there's some pretty cool swag!)

Thanks for everything you do to support Greater Greater Washington! Don’t forget to RSVP here.
