Recently we posted about Brookland resident Fiona Lewis, who is opening a sustainable fish market later this month at Union Market called the District Fishwife. As part of her Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to bring her store to the finish line, you can buy entrance to the District Fishwife’s Opening Party on Friday the 21st of February from 7pm – 9pm. For $50 you get to meet her team and sample menu items while sipping on beer. You can also follow the District Fishwife on Facebook and on Twitter.
