Friday Round Up
Hurry! Space is filling up fast at the Best of FamousDC Digital on Wednesday, February 21. If you know someone who dominates the interwebs and deserves some recognition…
Awesome events: “Seeing Deeper” at The Washington National Cathedral continues tonight with an indoor picnic and movie night. Catch “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”, “Rogue One” or both!; DC Diary is celebrating season 1! They’re pretty cool – check it out; Wunder Garten is hosting a Pyeong Chang Thang tonight to kick off the Winter Olympics; If you like running around in your underwear, then the Cupid’s Undie Run is for you (it’s for a good cause); Story District’s “Sucker For Love” will make you laugh, cry (from laughing), and be ready for everything Valentine’s Day throws your way this year; Celebrate David Bowie Saturday night at the Fillmore.
Here’s a wall that we paid for ourselves and doesn’t even require much security. All it required was FamousDC’s magic touch.
