Food.Fun.Stuff: Pizza, Yoga & Art Buzzing

[ 0 ] September 28, 2009 |

October is the month of events. Everyday we hear about at least 10 events that are going on in the District, no one should ever be bored. Of course, out of those 10 events, we scouted out the events that are most prevelant to foodies, so here we go:

>Pizza and yoga- Who would’ve thought pizza and yoga would team up and become a good date night? Past Tense Yoga Studio and Radius Pizza decided it was time for a change in the typical date night (*dinner and a movie…) and they came together to form yoga and pizza. On the first Saturday of each month (*beginning this October 3, 2009), the Yoga Studio will offer Date Night which is where the yogi of the couple brings their significant other and later, all class participants are welcomed to go over to Radius

where they will recieve 50% off a bottle of wine. Well if the Vinyasa-style yoga won’t calm you down, we guess they’re thinking a good bottle of wine sure will do it…

The Where: Past Tense, 3253 Mt. Pleasant St., NW Washington, D.C. & Radius, 3155 Mt. Pleasant St., NW

The When: The first Saturday of each month beginning October 3, 2009 @ 7 pm (*Extra dates are: Saturday, November 7, 2009 & Saturday, December 5, 2009)

The Money: $20 per couple; 50% off a bottle of wine @ Radius

>Art is the Buzz- This month, we’ve heard about a few collaborations with the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative. The Art Buzz Remix is coming to Co Co Sala (*we hope chocolate will be somewhere in the mix;-) to fundraise for the DC Arts and Humanities Education Collaborative’s Arts for Every Student Program. The event will include a video art installation, a music soundscape and giveaways from DURKL, Policy Brand Clothing Co. and VASTU to name a few.

Art Buzz is a cool fundraising effort that ensures under served DC public school students have the opportunity to enjoy the area’s rich art history via free transportation and free tickets to music, dance and theater events (*Kennedy Center events, museums, etc.). We love this. To see a dance troupe like Alvin Ailey or a play at the Arena Stage is a site for sore eyes, we wouldn’t want anyone to miss out on this opportunity which is why we love what Art Buzz is doing to ensure these students get this chance.

The Where: Co. Co. Sala, 929 F st., NW Washington, DC

The When: Monday, October 19, 2009, 6:30 pm-9:30 pm

The Money: $15 donation is requested and enters all attendees for a chance to win in the giveaways. Happy hour drink specials $4 beers, $6 wines and $8 sangria

JKGF will be in the building, we look forward to good causes, sangria and hopefully, some chocolate.
