The 2nd "People of Petworth" social is Friday, April 28th

Last month saw the kick-off of a new social gathering called the "People of Petworth." The new social is the idea of three residents who want to create a more "social" social by meeting up at a bar. It's a good way to try out new restaurants/bars and hang out with your neighbors. Everyone is invited to attend.

"People of Petworth" Social is a fun excuse to meet neighbors and grab drinks

Petworth is getting known for its Socials... from Grant Circle to Southwest Petworth to Sherman Circle.

Grant Circle Social is Wednesday, 8/19

The next (and 8th!) Grant Circle Social is Wednesday, August 19th from 6-7pm at the Grant Circle, appropriately enough. 

Stop by on your way home from work, on your way to the grocery store, before grabbing a bite to eat, or while walking your dog. Stop by with friends, neighbors, and/or kids for 5 minutes or the full hour! And please, invite your neighbors who may not be online and drag them along! 

To help beat the heat, this week will feature refreshing ice pops courtesy of neighbor (and Petworth News sponsor) Eddie Suarez! 

Hope to see you out there. And if you are interested in co-hosting a future Grant Circle Social please contact Rob Mandle.

Neighbors braved the potential threat of rain and came out to the Grant Circle Social tonight, and were rewarded with no rain, cool(er) air and a bunch of people waiting to meet. There were new faces joining us tonight, as well as some "regulars." It was great to see everyone (and to meet Brandon Todd's mom!).

Another successful Grant Circle Social

Another successful and fun Grant Circle Social tonight. Not sure of the count, maybe 40 or more neighbors showed up. A lot of new faces as well, which was great.

Feel free to tag yourself in the photos on Facebook! (As a "Page" I can't tag individuals... odd, yah?)
