Get back Grant Circle, get on with yourself SW Petworth Lemonade Social, here comes the new Sherman Circle Social.
This is awesome. What started with an idea by local resident Rob Mandle back in the fall to get Grant Circle area neighbors together to meet and casually socialize has spread around Petworth. Russ Breckenridge started the Lemonade Social at Quincy & Kansas (it's tomorrow, btw) and now Pam Brown has launched the Sherman Circle Social.
If you live near Sherman, I recommend you come out to the Circle next Wednesday, July 1st from 5:30pm - 6:30pm. Tell your neighbors who may not be on the listservs or read this blog, etc, and make sure they know to join. A mix of young and old, new residents and old-timers is the best combination. (And of course, I mean "old-timer" with total respect.)
BTW, a local blog, Bellyitch, is sponsoring a giveaway to support the Sherman Circle Social (ends this Friday, June 26th):
