Join your neighbors for breaking the Ramadan fast at Sherman Circle

Hello Petworth neighbors! This week marks the fourth and final week of Ramadan, a very special time for more than a billion Muslims around the world, including many of our neighbors.

A couple of my fellow Petworth friends and I are inviting you all to come out to a potluck iftar, the meal to break the fast each day, Thursday evening, June 22nd 7:30-9:30pm at Sherman Circle around sundown.
