1. Did you know there’s a roller skating pavilion here in the city? It’s in Anacostia Park, located along the Anacostia River in Southeast DC. It’s free to go for a spin (BYO skates this time of year), and there are also lanes to roll along running parallel to the water, though they are shared with bikers and runners. There’s even more recreation to enjoy at the park — fields for ball play, three playgrounds, tennis courts, and great views of riverfront.
2. The annual Adams Morgan Festival continues, though virtually, and is happening today. Online festivities include a live streaming music, fitness classes, a dance plaza, history and culture talks, and a Kids Zone with virtual soccer, Simon Says, basketball, and a scavenger hunt. See the schedule here.
3. An interesting WaPo article about a fantastic Smithsonian museum, the National Postal Museum, and its relevance during this time. It’s closed right now due to COVID, but make it a must-visit when it reopens. This KFDC write-up has more about it.
4. NPR Music’s playlist of 20 Songs For Sharing The Stereo With Your Kids came out a couple of years ago, but it’s still a good listen.
