1. Over the last couple of months I’ve mentioned disc golf, FootGolf, and Top Golf, so it’s about time regular ol’ golf gets a shout out hre, especially since it’s been a permitted activity longer than most. There are three courses in DC — East Potomac Park, Langston (near Anacostia Park), and Rock Creek — where the public is welcome to play. Family tees are available for younger beginner players. You can also just hit balls at the driving range, and if you don’t have clubs, East Potomac Park offers complimentary sanitized loaner clubs. And for public golf courses beyond the District, go here.
2. On Wednesdays through August, kids in grades 3-12 can join the National Museum of African American History and Culture for Artists at Home, a digital, interactive program designed to engage students in hands-on art making and conversations about African American artists and different genres of visual art. This week’s session will focus on Printmaking with Twentieth-Century Artist Elizabeth Catlett. Register in advance here.
3. Join the Smithsonian for Wikipedia: 19th Amendment Virtual Edit-a-thon. Help close the gap in articles about the 19th Amendment and women’s role in the suffrage movement. Editing will be open throughout August with Zoom training and office hours every Tuesday & Thursday this month from 11:30am – 1pm.
4. Friends recently introduced us to a different kind of dominoes (how had we never played it before?), and it was really fun.
