We were excited to learn that nearby brewer DC Brau will re-package 200 cases of their Brau Pils as Pride Pils in honor of Capital Pride, Washington, DC’s celebration of the LGBT community. If you would like to give it a try, Brookland’s Finest has partnered with DC Brau for the weekend to serve their special Pride Pils from June 8-11. From a press release:
Proceeds from the sale of PRIDE PILS will benefit local LGBTQ youth empowerment program, SMYAL, and The Blade Foundation, which is dedicated to preserving the Blade’s legacy while funding new enterprise journalism projects and encouraging the next generation of LGBT journalists.
Sounds great! We can’t wait to try it.
Now that the weather is getting warmer, we are going to start seeing outdoor movie nights pop up – Hooray! This one, coming up on Sunday May 8th has a small cover charge ($5) but is for a good cause. From a community message:
Come on out to the Arts Walk at Monroe Street Market on May 8th at 8pm to watch My Big Fat Greek Wedding! Thanks to co-sponsors Menkiti and Monroe Street Market, this outdoor movie night is a great opportunity to gather the community and support a neighborhood school, Elsie Whitlow Stokes Community Freedom Public Charter School.
The tickets are $5 each and include popcorn. All proceeds will benefit Stokes’ The Good Life event on May 21st at DC Brau. Get your tickets here or on site on the day of the event. For more information check out Stokes’ Facebook page here.
The Arts Walk is located at 716 Monroe St NE.
