Five Things for Today: August 11, 2021

Enjoy free entertainment at The Wharf’s Transit Pier on Wednesday and Thursday evenings


1.The Wharf at the southwest waterfront has been hosting a couple of free, family-friendly series this summer: Concerts on Wednesdays, movies on Thursdays.   This week pop/rock band Hijynx will be performing, and Ratatouille will be shown on the big outdoor screen — be sure to register in advance for the film!  Plan to grab a bite to enjoy with (or before) the entertainment — our easy faves are Lupo Marino, Falafel Inc., and Grazie Grazie, and there are a bunch of other places there offering tasty fare. (PS:  The Wharf is also a fun daytime destination — more about it here.)


2. Step Afrika! is kicking off their 2021-2022 season with a three-day celebration at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, which takes place outdoors this summer, this Thursday – Saturday, August 12-15.  Join in the celebration and enjoy their lively perscussive performances.  Access is first-come, first-served — no tickets or check-in required — and may be restricted due to capacity.


3. Just learned from DCist there’s a new pop-up disc golf course at RFK! We love playing (as discussed in this old post along with more about the game and another great place to in the area).


4. From the Washington Post’s On Parenting blog, The delta variant and kids: Parents’ questions answered.


5. The official Ted Lasso biscuits.
