Event description

Description

Cities are great places to raise children, DC in particular. So Streetsblog and Greater Greater Washington are hosting a playdate and family picnic to bring our readers together for some kid-friendly fun. Instead of another after-work happy hour at a 21+ bar, we want to get to know each other's families and enjoy the great urban outdoors. Streetsbaby Luna and Greater Greater Wunderkind Sophie will be in attendance and can't wait to spill things on you and your children.

The picnic will be at the National Gallery of Art's Sculpture Garden on Saturday, May 31, starting at 11:00 am. We’ll try to congregate in the southeast corner, near 7th Street and Madison Drive NW, but may shift if it’s crowded there. Call 202-460-4376 if you have trouble locating us.

The Sculpture Garden is between Constitution Avenue and Madison Drive and 7th and 9th Streets NW, and is accessible by every single Metro line, several buses, and the Pennsylvania Avenue cycletrack. You can even drive there, and either spend a lot of time hunting for on-street parking spaces or pay for a private garage.

The picnic will be a not-quite-potluck: If you can, please bring a (non-alcoholic) beverage, chips, cookies or some other snacky side to share, but it's every family for itself on the main course. The Pavilion Café is right there and ready to serve you soups, salads, and sandwiches if you can't be bothered to spend your morning slathering mustard on whole wheat bread.

Please RSVP here with the number of people (of any age) you'll be bringing so we have an idea how many folks to expect. Can't wait to see you and meet your family!

Important note: No one will be turned away for lack of kids. Your definition of family works for us, whatever it may be. And of course, you're welcome to come on your own.
