Five Things for Today: May 14, 2020

Seen on a recent neighborhood walk


1. Little ones can enjoy an online presentation of the Imagination Stage production, Inside Out, this week. Recommended for ages 1-5, it’s a pay-what-you-can model with a suggested donation of $10.

2. This has to be one of the sweetest “pivots” of these coronatimes… People. Animals. Love (PAL), a local nonprofit that provides therapy dogs, has switched things up while their dogs are under stay-at-home orders. Instead of the pooches makings visits to people, kids are visiting them via Zoom and reading aloud to help boost reading skills and confidence. Sessions are filled up for the next few days, but you can sign up to be notified when they are open again. (PS: Learn more in this Washington post article where I found out about it.)

3. Wegmeyer Farms is open for strawberry picking at their Oatlands location in Leesburg — their biggest field has acres and acres of strawberries and will allow for significant spacing between everyone. Picking is by reservation only! They apparently have had some technical difficulties with the reservation system, so try back if it’s not working. Be sure to read about their picking policies before you go.

4. The Indigo Girls are playing a virtual concert tonight at 7pm to benefit Honor the Earth, performing an acoustic set of their entire Rites of Passage album. More about it here.

5. Jimmy Fallon and The Roots (and Brendan Urie from Panic! At The Disco) are amazing.
