It feels like it's been a long time coming, but there's just over two weeks until Election Day, and fewer than that until early voting starts in DC on October 27. It's important to make sure you and all of your friends, family members, and co-workers are registered to vote, know where their voting place is and have a voting plan.

Now that's a balanced ticket!

Tis the season to shop local and shop small
It's the holiday season

Nothing gets me in the holiday spirit like shopping and eating. But fighting traffic and spending hours wandering from store to store in search of the perfect gift, only to go home virtually empty-handed without anyone crossed off your list can turn anyone into a Scrooge. Sure, there’s online shopping, but scrolling through websites doesn’t exactly put you in the holiday spirit.
This year, ditch your normal shopping routine, and visit one of DC’s holiday markets with one-of-a-kind items, entertainment, and tasty goodies to help fuel your day of browsing.
Let's go shopping!
Look up, down, and all around. Adventures can be found everywhere -- if you're curious enough to look. k for it
