Five Things for Today: June 26, 2020

1. DC was recently named one of the best cities for biking by PeopleForBikes. In light of that, here’s a (repeat) recommendation to get the fam out on two wheels! This Curbed article that I’ve shared before has info on a bunch of good bike rides in the area. We really like the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail which runs from the Tidal Basin to Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, and links up with the Anacostia Tributary Trail System that extends to College Park. (Read more about it in this KFDC post, but heads up that the Aquatic Gardens are currently closed.)

2. Plan ahead: Tomorrow at 10am, join the Smithsonian American Art Museum for a special Drag Queen Story Time to celebrate Pride. DC drag queen Ruth Allen Ginsburg will bring fun for the whole family while reading classic nursery rhymes and tales for children. And the museum’s online Pride Family Zone has all kinds of related activities, including crafts, videos, and more.

3. Pizza and a movie, anyone? Enjoy both at Tino’s Pizza, located on Connecticut Avenue next to the former Uptown Theatre. They’ve launched an outdoor movie and pizza night on the patio and will be screening What About Bob, a summer classic, tonight at 8:30pm. Get there early to snag a spot! (PS: This will be taking place on Wednesday and Friday nights.)

4. To allow for better social distancing as more restaurants reopen to diners, 18th Street in Adams Morgan will close to traffic and become a pedestrian and bike zone. (DCist)

5. A recent Code Switch podcast episode asking, β€˜Why now, White People’ is an interesting listen.
