Neighbors have seemed really excited by the Women in Science series taking place monthly at local jazz club AJACS. So, we figured we wold continue spreading the word about it . The next event is coming up this Monday and will feature biomedical engineering professor Sahana N. Kukke, PH.D. The interactive discussion will center around the concept of senses, particularly touch. All ages are welcome and no background knowledge is needed.
We thought neighbors would be interested in this upcoming event that will feature physics professor Sarah Eno, PH.D. The discussion will center around the Higgs Boson particle and the field of science all together. All ages are welcome and no background information is needed.
It’shard to believe Brookland’s Jazz and Cultural Society (JACS) is turning one year old. Recently they were awarded Best New Jazz Venue from the Washington City Paper and have been getting steady great reviews since they opened. When we first caught up with JACS owner DeAndrey Howard two summers ago, as he was making plans to open JACS, we knew it would evolve into a great neighborhood-focused destination. If you haven’t had the chance to check out this neighborhood venue, their One Year Anniversary Concert would be a great time to do so. From the event page:

When we first moved here, San Antonio’s and Colonel Brooks’ Tavern were holding it down as the major sit-down restaurants in the area. So it is still pretty surprising to us, in a way, to see Brookland businesses (and those in our wider area) getting publicity from the established city-wide press. We love it. These small businesses put a lot on the line, and took a chance on our area, so we thank them and congratulate them on being “Best Of” in their category. Area winners in
Right Proper takes the brewing process one step further than most: Its production brewery, which opened in Brookland in December, houses three 45-hectoliter oak wine casks (called foudres in French) inoculated with a house culture of wild yeasts and bacteria. A tribute to the days when beers were produced in only wooden vessels using natural airborne yeast, foudres allow beers to continuously develop in character and depth.
The Public Option – DC’s Best Brew Pub (Staff Pick). Since we did a story on their soft opening back in October, this small home-grown business has steadily improved with fun pop-up events and outdoor seating. As the City Paper said:
It is the most neighborly pint you can order in Washington. Now that is a brewpub.
Neighbors seem fiercely proud of the bright Mediterranean joint whose name means “nest” in Italian and Spanish…Were it located on buzzy 14th Street NW, it might be mobbed with scenesters. But given that it’s more than a mile from a Metro station, it’s a relaxed place to escape for the evening. Or as the description on the menu simply calls it, “a place to sit down.”
Jazz and Cultural Society (JACS) – Best New Jazz Venue (Staff Pick). When we first caught up with JACS owner DeAndrey Howard two summers ago, as he was making plans to open JACS, we knew it would evolve into a great neighborhood-focused destination. As noted by the City Paper:
It all adds up to a rare breed: jazz as a grassroots movement. JACS’ place among the rowhouses of Brookland is no accident. It signifies Howard and Jamison’s desire to strip away the music’s often-elitist trappings and give it back to an everyday audience.
JACS, (Jazz & Cultural Society) is “a community oriented space for musicians and listeners”at 2813 12th Street NE (near the corner of Franklin). We spoke with owner DeAndrey Howard last summer as he was making plans to open JACS. He emphasized that it would be a “family friendly” place that showcases local talent and spoke of discovering jazz in DC’s storied U Street nightclubs as a young man. Now JACS is open and hosts live entertainment every Wednesday and Sunday from 6:00 – 9:00 pm for a $5.00 cover charge. We thought readers would enjoy these photos of their newly painted storefront, pretty cool! Check out JACS Facebook page here.
