Z E N M O M E N T S : Hope your long weekend is starting off, well, ZEN – above, a gorgeous photo set of Yoga With Nya at Union Market's Dock 5, by photographer James Jackson/@thisisjamesj. Below: a ton of links, events, and GOOD READS to get you through the next few days (and well into next week, too).
LOCAL FOOD STUFF: D.C. photog Sarah Gerrity has an awesome BURGER round-up on her blog; a bourbon +brine barbecue sauce recipe from Gordy's Pickle Jar; grill ideas galore from Cava; and, also burger/barbecue/SUMMER WEEKEND-related, we just tried the Spicy Pineapple 'Chups and that shit was life-changing. Find it around town here.
SOLID ADVICE: We are wild for this El Camino Travel blog post about building a business – incredible takeaways for anyone looking to take an idea and turn it into something actual. Also now we really want to go to Nicaragua.
COMING UP: The "Quietly Cutting Through" show at Torpedo Factory looks great (and opens July 9); political thrillers ABOUND in Georgetown's Sunset Cinema Series (July 7 - August 4); illustrator Marcella Kriebel's A Hand Drawn Feast opens next week at our very own Wild Hand Workspace; we love the lineup for Honfleur Gallery's 8th Annual East of the River Exhibition; and don't forget: our monthly A Creative DC x Maketto: IRL event is July 31! Mark your calendar.
OTHER STUFF: Creative jobs, illustrated; Couchside Collector is a new site by D.C'.s Kristina Bilonick; Malcolm Gladwell on being disruptive; we really appreciated this Washington City Paper piece about why they're not photographing the Foo Fighters at RFK tomorrow; and MITDistrict launched part 1 of their first NATVS© documentary – it features boxer Dusty Harrison, and we're stoked to run part 2 next week.
