The Dancehall of Beautiful Radiant Things

The Dancehall of Beautiful Radiant Things is a social-mixer-disguised-as-a-slow-dance-club that welcomes dancers and non-dancers of all skill levels to share in a night of song-length social vignettes. Upon entry, attendees are given a dance card with 21 spots for 21 songs. Fill your card with friends, with strangers, with secret crushes, with future besties. That's 21 chances to be present and connect with a dance partner for the length of a simple, 3.5 minute serenade. No strings attached. No irony. No dancing skills required. [more inside]

Phoenix Ice Cream Social

Hello, fellow Phoenicians! Long time, no meetup. We've been reminded that it's ice cream social season, so I figured we should try to make this happen if people are around over the summer. [more inside]

Broadway Waltz

A very low-key social partner dance: easy to try for newbies; traditional energetic as well as modern gentle music for the partner dances; an open-role dance for those who like it. From 7:20-8pm we teach a lesson for *total beginners* that will get you through Walking That Counts as Dancing, and give you a try at either rotary waltz or polka, which are gloriously whirly. You don't need to dress up or come with a partner. [more inside]

Hang out and chat with the grownups, or rediscover your inner child on the playground (we won't judge). 1 block from Metra, free parking for drivers. [more inside]

Game on at Game Haus?

I have never been to: a) Game Haus, or b) a MeFi meetup, but I would very much like to. Would any of you be interested in doing game night there this month or next? The only days I can't do are the ones surrounding Comic Con weekend (July 18 - 22). UPDATE: Date/Time added!

DC Ice Cream Social Redux

The 2016 Ice Cream Social/Potluck at Crispus Attucks Park was a lot of fun, so how about a repeat? Does July 7, 8 or 22 work for people? Or if July's too hot, later in August or early September?

UPDATE: August 5th looks like the best date. Looking forward to trying everybody's efforts. At least one attendee is lactose-intolerant, so I'm making the Vegan Chipotle Chocolate again.

DC Progressives at Le Pain Quotidien

The DC DSA chapter's next general meeting is 3-5pm on Sunday, 8/19, and I thought it would be great for those of us who are going or who are interested in politics and activism generally to have a place to talk shop afterward. You are also absolutely welcome if you aren't interested in the DSA -- this meetup is truly for DC progressives of all stripes. The cafe, Le Pain Quotidien, is chosen for its proximity to Dupont Circle Metro. [more inside]

Bowie Baysox v. Altoona Curve - minor league baseball, y'all!

I just attended a minor league game at Prince George's Stadium, and it was SO MUCH DAMN FUN. Relatively sparse crowds, no lines for concessions, and cheap seats *right up front*. There are even good activities for the kiddos--a carousel, a bouncehouse, and of course, face painting. LET'S DO THIS, DC-AREA MEFITES. [more inside]
