ABOVE: Strawberry Dreams Fanzine launched this week. "By girls, for everyone," the zine features a slew of DC contributors and features, and we're digging the vibes of inclusion and diversity. SOLIDARITY FIST, STRAWBERRY DREAMS FANZINE.
WE'RE NOT EVEN GOING TO GET INTO events this weekend, because the playing field is dense and we don't know where to start. No wait, we DO know where to start: sign up for the Pink Line Project newsletter, eyeball BYT's Best Weekend Bets, get your comedy fix (for now and for future) at WaPo Express, and read up at Washington City Paper – they've got a great round up of What You Should See at This Weekend's In It Together Fest.
BRAINS ON BRAINS ON BRAINS. The NEA released an executive report this week titled How Creativity Works In The Brain...anyone else really stoked to sit down with this and some wine and possibly even a very large pizza? Are we NOT GETTING INTO events this week because we may or may not have found our ideal Saturday night? Solid maybe.
DC-BASED FASHION PODCAST Pop Fashion was featured this week by Harper's Bazaar! Congrats to the women behind it (and to their "smart and creative approach to all things pop culture and fashion related").
CALL FOR ENTRIES: Implicit Bias – Seeing The Other, Seeing Ourselves, a multi-site exhibition at the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery and at Busboys and Poets locations in the city proper.
IF YOU'RE READING THIS, THIS MORNING: we hope to see you at Maketto for our monthly, agenda-free, IRL meet up from 11AM - 2:30PM. Come out, commune, and get to know who's in your city. IS IT THE AFTERNOON THO? We hope we saw ya, and mark your calendars for the last Friday of each month, because we're doing it all again on August 28th.
AND RE: US, US, US – huge thanks to Washingtonian, Capitol Hill's The Hill Is Home, and @BL_NKWORLD for sharing the 411 on IRL! OH, AND – we mentioned it yesterday, but we've got a BIG announcement coming Monday, re: SHARE YOUR CITY. Keep an eye out – we'll see you then!
