It begins Thursday February 7th with an opening reception from 6 – 9 pm. The show continues through the weekend, open each day 11 am – 5 pm. There will be an “artists salon” on Saturday at 2 pm, where several of the artists will be on hand to discuss their work.

So come on out!

The Citizens Association of Georgetown is holding its annual gala October 26th. Once again it will be held in the glitz Russian Embassy up in Glover Park. This year, though, the organizers are offering something special.

When you enter, you will be given a pile of chips to bet on various card games. You will then be able to take the winnings and bid in an auction for a bunch of really nice prizes. They include week long rentals at locations including a 18th century French chateau, a two bedroom Florence apartment, and a spa at Rancho La Puerta in Mexico. Continue reading

The show itself will be Presidents Day weekend (starting Thursday February 16th through Monday the 20th) at the elegant House of Sweden. The show is open to all artists who either live or work in Georgetown. You can show up to four pieces, depending on space. The entry fee is $50.  To apply, either call the CAG office at 202-337-7313 or email them at cagmail@cagtown.org.

This is a fantastic event and a great way to remind yourself just how much talent is roaming Georgetown.

What’s Wrong With Wisconsin Ave.?

Photo by Raoul Pop.

What’s ailing Wisconsin Ave.? Despite being in one of the most popular retail districts in the country, the strip is littered with vacancies and discount clothing stores? What gives? How did it get this way? And what can be done by the city, the BID, and the citizens to turn it around? And why aren’t there more stores that serve residents, like a hardware store?

Well tonight these questions, and more, will be on the agenda of the Citizens Association of Georgetown’s November membership meeting. On hand to discuss these matters will be Ward 2 Councilmember Jack Evans, Chairman of Western Development, Herb Miller, and President of Asadoorian Commercial brokerage, John Asadoorian. Each of these men play a big role in what Georgetown looks like today, and will likely play a big role in what it looks like in ten years and beyond. Evans is about to be reelected, Miller’s Western Development is still a big player in the Georgetown development scene, and Asadoorian is active throughout the neighborhood getting businesses and landlords together.

GM himself will be moderator, but he’ll keep his role to just tossing out the questions to the panel and getting out of the way. Continue reading

Find Your Block Captain

Through its Public Safety program, CAG organizes the efforts of volunteers willing to serve as Block Captains. The individuals take it upon themselves to act as micro information bureaus for a block, or two (or three). In some cases they form email chains or even organize periodic meetings in discuss public safety issues.

They try to keep an eye out for everyone on the block, but you can benefit even more by reaching out to them and letting them know how to contact you. Here is the most recent list of Block Captains, and how to reach them (if it’s too small to read, you can just view the document here):

GM received a request to take down the list since it has personal email addresses on it. GM assumed since they were published on the CAG website that the captains were ok with it. If you want to know who your block captain is, email GM at editor@georgetownmetropolitan.com and he’ll let you know. Alternatively, they are listed in the most recent CAG newsletter.

As you can see, there are a bunch of blocks without volunteers. If one of those blocks is your own, maybe you’d be willing to step forward. If so, contact the CAG office at 337-7313 to let them know you’re interested.
