Just Up The Pike turns 11 this year, and I'd like to do something about it. We've built a community of a couple thousand readers, contributors, and local leaders, and I invite all of you to celebrate over a decade of celebrating East County on Tuesday, August 15 from 6 to 8pm at Kaldi's Social House, located at 918 Silver Spring Avenue. As one of Silver Spring's fifteen (and counting) coffeeshops, Kaldi's is not only known for its brewing techniques but its rooftop bar overlooking downtown.
Joining us will be our friends at Greater Greater Washington, a regional website and advocacy organization that I've been a part of for eight years (and have worked for as well). I organize the monthly GGWash happy hours, which rotate around different parts of the DC area, and I'm always excited to bring it here.
Kaldi's Social House is an eight-minute walk from the Silver Spring Metro station (Red Line), as well as dozens of Metrobus and Ride On routes (if you're coming from DC, you can take the 70/79 and S2/S4/S9.) There's a Capital Bikeshare stations two blocks away at Ripley and Bonifant streets. If you’re driving, there’s free parking after 7pm on the street and in the public garage in back.
I hope you see you there! You can RSVP here.
