So, you lovely blog-readers, I have 2 events to spotlight for you.
Number 1 is: Scoutmob’s “Blossom, Bake, & Brew
Scoutmob’s “handpicked” event which is happening this Saturday April 21 from 4pm to 7pm, on H st corridor NE. (Yea, the cool part of town where all the fun stuff happens like the RRH, Dangerously Delicious Pies, Toki Underground, etc etc…)
From the Scoutmobsters’ press release… It’s a collision of epic righteousness: Scoutmob’s joining forces with Dangerously Delicious Pies, Chocolate City Beer and a whole team of local artists and musicians to party for a cause.
What To Expect
- Admission for 1 to the Blossom Bake + Brew in the Gallery O on H Courtyard
- Exclusive “Blossom Beer” tasting from Chocolate City
- One yummy “pocket” pie courtesy of Dangerously Delicious Pies
- Live music from the likes of Listen Local First
- Support for the community courtesy of H Street Main Street
Oh but FYI ~ you have to buy tickets (which is a little sad for those of us who are trying to save $). Buy ‘em HERE if you want ‘em.
Number 2 is a FREE event…
