Buy Some Cool Stuff, Help Your Local School

This Friday at the Swedish embassy there will be the 12th annual EcoFest auction to benefit the Hyde-Addison School. Funds raised will be used to support the public elementary school’s programs.

Tickets are $50 per person to the fun-filled event. There are well over 100 cool items up for bidding, such as:

A 1951 Epiphone archtop guitar with 1940’s amplifier.

Spend a day sailing the Chesapeake Bay from beautiful Oxford, Md.

Or an evening with proud Hyde parent Peter Andreasson and his famous Swedish pancakes. As a bonus, Peter will play Swedish songs on his guitar as you munch down the lingonberry-topped treats.

So come on down to the Swedish Embassy this Friday night and take home some cool stuff and help out a great cause to boot.

The Morning Metropolitan

Good Monday morning Georgetown, hope you enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend. Here’s the latest:

  • Georgetown Cupcake is expanding to Bethesda. Will its cache survive attempts to go chain? We’ll see…
  • More Nordic jazz this week on the roof of the Swedish Embassy. GM will be there Wednesday night, if not just for the amazing views.
  • GM missed this on Friday, but Saturday marked the first Glover Park-Burleith Farmers Market in front of Hardy Middle School and across from the Social Safeway (construction). This of course is also the site of the Georgetown Flea Market. So is the lot in Georgetown? Burleith? Glover Park? Who cares, they’re both great things to have around. (If you must know, the answer is Georgetown)
