Tomorrow is one of GM’s favorite annual events in Georgetown: the Georgetown Garden Tour. While most of the gardens on the tour are the typical sort of gardens featured each year, this year the tour will also feature a docent lead tour of Dumbarton Oaks Park.
You may already be familiar with this treasure of a park, but there are probably nooks and crannies in it that you don’t know about (did you realize there’s a pet cemetery there, where multiple horses are buried?).
Come and learn more about this wonderful park. You really ought to be pay and do the full tour, but all you have time for is this part, then you probably don’t have to worry about getting a ticket. Just show up there sometime between 12 and 5 pm.
On May 14th, the indie rock band Vampire Weekend will release its third full length album: Vampires of the City. Stream it here on iTunes (you need iTunes installed, unfortunately) and preorder it.
Why, you ask? Because Rostam Batmanglij, whose multi-instrumental sounds join with Ezra Koenig’s yelps to form the core of the band’s sound, is a Georgetown native. His parents, Najmieh and Mohammad still live in the house he grew up in (Najmieh is a successful chef and author).
