DC Progressives

The DC DSA chapter's next general meeting is 3-5pm on Sunday, 9/9, 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.

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.

We've spent a lot of time exploring the cuisines of Europe and Asia, but not quite as much in Central America. And yet we're in the unofficial pupusa capital of the US!
