I remember when I first moved to DC, it seemed like you couldn’t get in a taxi without hearing the mellifluous tones of Kojo Nnamdi asking important questions about life in our city. Now, you have a chance to watch him in action during a live taping of his show, on location from 6 to 8 pm on Tuesday, July 30 at the Anacostia Playhouse, 2020 Shannon Place SE, “to talk about the landscape of local businesses, jobs and entrepreneurship in Ward 8.”

Kojo will ask, “what does it take to open a business in a neighborhood that some residents feel has traditionally lacked shops, restaurants, and entertainment? As development ramps up East of the River—a new sports and entertainment arena in Congress Heights, Busboys and Poets in Anacostia, along with smaller local businesses—are longtime business owners, new entrepreneurs, and job seekers able to take advantage of the new growth? What are the businesses that are setting up shop—and will they serve the community surrounding them?

Register to attend here, and heed the organizers’ note that “seating is limited – first-come, first-served. Although registration is strongly recommended, it does not guarantee a seat.”

Don’t forget about our hot event: Join GGWash and the Urban Land Institute (ULI) Washington on Thursday, August 8, 6-8 pm at 700 Pennslyvania Avenue SE for a panel discussion about climate change, extreme urban heat, and resilience efforts that are happening in our own backyard. This event is $10 for GGWash Neighbors and $20 for the general public (note that prices increase by $5 after August 4). Neighbors can look for an email with the registration code or contact Jane Green. Not yet a GGWash Neighbor? Join today!
