Passport to DC: Europe TODAY

Today is the Passport to DC open house in all of the European embassies.

This will take place between 10 AM and 4 PM today.

Join the European Union Embassies in Washington, DC, for a day of family fun, food and culture. Free shuttle buses with two routes will drop visitors off at various Embassies. This year the EU is highlighting the theme GREEN EUROPE: GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY AND THE ENVIRONMENT. We want to show, through our own experience, that it is possible to tackle climate change, grow a clean energy economy of the future and become world leaders in reducing greenhouse gas emissions by at least 20% by 2020. Our policies have improved EU energy security and have created new green jobs while fulfilling our social and environmental responsibility.

Come to the open house to hear about the institute's upcoming events, exhibits, films, and summer language sessions that start on June 7th. The first hour of the open house will be networking, the second a tour, film, and short presentation. There will be refreshments too :)

The Goethe-Institut is a global German cultural institute, with a branch here in Washington, DC. I've put together this micro-site with schedules of our class dates and levels, and cultural events (films, exhibits, discussions, etc.)

Social Safeway Reopens

The grocery store that ripped me off throughout all my college days has reopened after a year of reconstruction and is supposed to be incredible! Most importantly this weekend they are giving away 300 $25 gift cards and have free food samples throughout the store.

Ah yes and cheese-its are on sale at Safeway for only $.99 a box this weekend!! Stock up! Have you seen the hilarious cheese-it commercial by the way?
