Arena Stage Reopens Today

A few weeks ago it was the Artisphere in Rosslyn and today it is Arena Stage near the waterfront metro station. Arena is having its grand reopening all day today, which means free performances galore!!

While all the advance tickets are long gone, there will still be tickets available at the door today starting at 10 AM (so hurry on up).

There are also several events for which you do not need any tickets so don't not go just because you have no ticket in hand and it may be 1 PM when you're reading this.

Free Dinner Wednesday Nights

Well, it turns out that every Wednesday night at Whole Foods (for sure the Clarendon location) is amazing sample night. They produce a menu and there are several cooking stations where you're handed a plate to sample the fish, chicken, basically whatever is on their menu that night.

The best time to go is from 5-6:30. I got there at 7:00 last Wednesday night and there was only one hot station left (serving delicious rock fish with a side salad), one dessert station (pumpkin pie), one cheese, cracker, jam station, and one wine station.

My mole in customer service told me I missed two other hot stations that had been open earlier in the evening!
