Lady and the Trump

I thought I'd be able to get free tickets for everyone, but they had a two ticket limit for the nonprofit discount. Sorry :( If you work at a nonprofit, call 612-332-6620 to reserve tickets for FREE.

About the Show: No matter what happens this election cycle, only one thing is for certain: it WILL be satirized in our 2016 election show, "Lady and the Trump."

"Lady and the Trump" will feature BNW cast members Lauren Anderson, Andy Kraft, Ryan Nelson, Tom Reed and Taj Ruler. The show will be directed by Caleb McEwen. Josie Just will be the music director, and Matthew Vichlach will provide technical direction.

DC FOODIES get sum dim sum

Hello FOODIES and welcome to the planning thread for our July meetup! (Sorry, I know that title pun is terrible.) Everyone seemed pretty interested in dim sum when we met up earlier this month, and my research suggests that Gourmet Inspirations in Silver Spring, MD (near the Wheaton Red Line stop) is the area's sleeper hit, both better-reviewed and apparently less-crowded than its competitors. For anyone who doesn't know what dim sum is, it's Hong Kong-style brunch tapas and it is delicious! Usually lots of dumplings and pastries are involved. Update: Date/time confirmed, hope to see you there! [more inside]

DC FOODIES are in the jungle, baby!

Hello food fans of DC! We had an excellent Uzbek lunch last weekend (with duffell and CatastropheWaitress' tiny adorable baby!!) and I think it's about time we got back into a routine. I promised metro accessibility, I promised vegetarian options, and I think a great way to fulfill the promise would be at Thip Khao, an excellent Laotian restaurant in Columbia Heights which wants to welcome you to the jungle. Who's in? [more inside]
