Pups and Pilsners in Crystal City

What’s better than attending an outdoor beer festival in Crystal City?

Attending one where you can also bring your favorite pup, of course.

The inaugural Pups and Pilsners outdoor beer festival was Sunday, September 23rd from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., just a dog walk away from your equally pet-friendly apartments at 220 Twentieth Street.

I’m sure all of our wonderful pet owners enjoyed the massive beer garden with ten different stations – each with a different craft brew!  The best part was that entry to the festival was free; you pay for own drinks, of course!

Enjoy Quality Theater at the Nearby Synetic

We love theater in all of its forms – Broadway, off Broadway, and especially not far from

220 Twentieth at Synetic Theater.  A true artistic gem in the community, Synetic received 15 Helen Hayes nods for King Lear, and was awarded a 2010 National Theatre Company Grant from American Theatre Wing, founder of the Tonys®!

So we visit to see their most recent drama playing out on stage whenever possible.  Beginning this September 20th, we’re going to explore the famed life of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in “Jekyll and Hyde”, Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic Victorian tale of good and evil.  But this tale will be told at Synetic adding their signature physicality and darkly dramatic aesthetic.  Updating the story’s setting from 19th century London to modern-day America, Synetic’s version will put a new spin on the strange case of the charming and sociable Synetic Theatre, Crystal City, Crystal City BID, 220 Twentieth Street, Crystal City UndergroundDr. Jekyll and his sinister friend, accused murderer Mr. Hyde

Oooh, sounds really exciting, and sinister and artistic and dark…

So make sure to gather all your friends and get tickets to see the show!  After all, theatre is best enjoyed in community, with friends who are willing to walk down to the theater with you, walk you home, and hold your hand during the scary parts…

September is it!   It’s your last month to enjoy Food Truck Thursday before it ends on the 27th. So be all over it – get your lunchtime Food Truck fix from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 223 23rd Street – not far from your apartment at 220 Twentieth Street!

There are so many yummy trucks to enjoy – A’Lo Cubano, Doug the Food Dude, Hot Food People, Lemongrass and more. We’ll be there, inhaling food from the eight food trucks represented and hoping to placate our taste buds until the trucks come back next June.

Well, maybe we won’t inhale the food. We’ll just buy all of our faves and take it back to our 220 Twentieth Street Apartments to nibble on it a bit… gracefully.
