Going to Interpol at The Anthem or Metric at The Fillmore Silver Spring? Keep the party going after either show with Liberation Dance Party, the video event that introduced the music of both bands to the DMV! Dance the night away at DC9 on Friday, Feb. 15, with no cover!
Arc The Hotel at night
Boutique inn Arc The Hotel hosted a reception in Foggy Bottom recently to showcase the opening of its restaurant Notti 824, now the closest dining establishment to the Kennedy Center (outside of the Kennedy Center, of course).

Thanks to Dave Mays (founder of The Source Magazine), Jeremy Beaver (owner of Listen Vision Studios/founder of Hip-Hop Museum), and Culture House (formerly Blind Whino), DC has yet another museum to add to its proverbial list.

As the federal government shutdown continues, we at Parklife DC have become increasingly outraged by the treatment of federal workers living in our city. So we urge you to donate or volunteer for Jose Andres’ World Central Kitchen to help.

Editor’s note: Parklife DC reviews many shows at City Winery, so we recently took a wine tour to learn more about our friends and partners in Ivy City (1350 Okie St. NE, Washington, DC 20002). Read our Parklife DC concert coverage at City Winery.
In April, DC’s City Winery will celebrate its first year, and it’s planning some celebrations for that month. As regular concert attendees at City Winery Washington DC, Parklife DC meanwhile visited the winery on a team tour. We heartily recommend you book your own tour after reading these notes on our experience!
