SEPT. 1, 2016



Following the devastating earthquake in Italy, three Mindful Restaurant Group restaurants, including Capitol Hill's Acqua al 2 (212 7th St. SE), are serving a special dish now through the end of September.

50% of sales from the Bucatini Amatriciana ($18) will go to the Italian Red Cross to aid in relief efforts. It's a signature dish of the city of Amatrice, which was impacted by the earthquake. The dish will be available for both lunch and dinner, so be sure to stop by and #EatForItaly!


Starting September 18, the DC Streetcar will begin Sunday Service. Monthly data shows the streetcar has consistently exceeded ridership projections. In the six months since passenger service began on February 27, the streetcar has carried over 400,000 passengers, stimulating economic development, tourism and general interest along the corridor.
“With six months of passenger service complete, the streetcar is ready for the next step forward, the launch of Sunday service,” said Mayor Muriel Bowser. “We continue to be impressed by the ridership numbers and look forward to attracting even more people to the H Street/Benning Road corridor each and every day of the week.”
DC Streetcar hours of operation:

  • Monday-Thursday: 6 am – midnight
  • Friday: 6 am – 2 am
  • Saturday: 8 am – 2 am
  • Sunday/Holidays: 8 am – 10 pm

It’s almost September, which means one thing – back to school! Labyrinth Games & Puzzles recently announced that the following schools will be offering their after school strategy game club. If you are interested in having your child participate, please contact the school's aftercare program. Classes start in most schools within the next couple weeks!

Tyler, SWS, Two Rivers, Two Rivers - Young, Van Ness, Capitol Hill Learning Group, Brent, Watkins, Peabody, Ross, Maury, Francis Stevens, Montessori @ Logan, Capitol Hill Day School, Murch, and Ludlow Taylor

Labyrinth also has a lot of fun in-store events for kids planned for the fall! Check them out and RSVP here.

World Car Free Day (CFD) is Thursday, September 22, and last year thousands of metropolitan Washington residents went to the local CFD website and pledged to give up solo driving for a day—and visited CFD sponsors whose logos and website links are featured on the site!
It’s easy to become a sponsor. Just provide a Car Free Day coupon, raffle prize, service or promotion, and your logo and website link will be placed on where it will be seen by thousands of participating metropolitan Washington area residents.
You’ll support Commuter Connections’ annual program to show commuters the benefits of leaving their cars behind for the environment, traffic congestion, and their wallets.  And that’s good for business because people who go car-free tend to shop locally and more frequently than their car-driving-counterparts. 
To become an event sponsor or to learn more, contact Patrick Higgins at, or call 914-821-5100.

Fall means a new school year, back to work, and back to real life. Need help working Biker Barre into your day?

  • Take 10 classes in September, get 10% off ANY purchase (retail or classes) in October.

  • Take 30 classes...okay you get the point.

You must complete all of your classes in September and you must make your purchase in October. Other than that - there are no rules! Let's make this the sweatiest September ever - only in the studio though... we're ready for a little less heat outside.
