what's up the pike: work outs and column inches

- Jessica from A Parent In Silver Spring asked me to let you know about The Work Out For Demitry, a fundraiser this Sunday for the sixteen-month-old son of a local hair stylist who recently lost her fiance in a tragic motorcycle accident in July. For $40, not only can you support a very good cause, but you might lose a few pounds in the process working out with "the region's finest instructors in spinning, yoga, pilates, hip hop cardio, interval training and zumba dance." The event will be held at the Rock Creek Sports Club on Grubb Road. I've also been told there'll be food from Kirsten's Cafe and Red Dog Cafe, which is far more enticing than the possibility of exercise.

For more information, call Rachel Posell at (202) 329-6762 or e-mail her at rachel at posell dot com.

- Check out this week's column in the Diamondback about University Town Center (see photo above, taken last year), the new mixed-use development near campus that's attracted some seriously unwanted attention. What, you haven't heard? I write for the University of Maryland's independent student newspaper now. You can find my earlier columns here.

- Hey, you should stop e-mailing me at my old address! Please send your questions, rants, tips, and et cetera to justupthepike at gmail dot com.

Thanks for letting your readers know about the work out on Sunday! If anyone comes in full 80s workout gear I'll donate an additional $40 in their name!
