Small Business Saturday

Shouldn't every day be a #shopsmall day? We think so, but we also love a good celebratory day honoring Small Business Folk, and this year we have much to celebrate: in addition to our bustling Dupont Shop chock-full of goodies, we are adding a new location ON SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY (maybe even a hair before if we can swing it!).

Cathedral Commons, is a beautiful group of businesses on an historic stretch of  Wisconsin Avenue, in the shadow of the National Cathedral. It has some beautiful conveniences that our beloved Dupont shop just can't offer: parking (90 minutes free garage parking, plus plenty of street parking), space (high ceilings! room to pass other shoppers freely!), and lots of other shops and restaurants and activities nearby (Blue Mercury, Core72, Le Village Marche, The Cookery, Raku, Silver Diner, Barcelona ... Pure Barre, Zenga Cycle .. THE WASHINGTON BALLET!)

At the corner of Wisconsin and Newark, our hours are: 10 - 6, MON - SAT; 11 - 5 SUN

Countdown to Magic

This will be magical: "The DC Public Library Foundation is set to release a compilation album featuring several luminaries of the DC music scene entitled ALB’s Rock the Stacks. The release will come in both vinyl and digital format. The Foundation will host a local music festival and release party at the MLK Library on February 24, 2017. The proceeds of the album and all events surrounding it will go to the DC Public Library Foundation. ALB’s Rock the Stacks came together in memory of Annie Lou Berman, an essential member of the DC creative community and board member of the DC Public Library Foundation, who succumbed to cancer earlier this year.

Some of Berman’s favorite bands have donated recordings to the project while others collaborated to make fresh recordings in the state-of-the-art Martin Luther King Jr Memorial Library recording studios. Some of the bands and musicians appearing on the album includeThievery Corporation, Deathfix, Fort Knox Five, Shortstack and Small Doses. The release party will feature many of the bands on the album, including Elmapi, Furniteur, Warm Sun and The ALB Allstars (a supergroup of members appearing on Rock the Stacks).

The project is being headed by a committee that includes Anna Fuhrman (Proper Topper),Brendan Canty (Fugazi, Deathfix), Jim Thomson (Gwar), Ben Gilligan (musician and restaurateur), Vida Russell and Jerry Busher (Deathfix, French Toast) as well as members of the library and Berman’s family members, including husband MJ Berman, sister Johanna Howe and cousin Kevin Bayly.
