So if you are in need of a place to twiddle your thumbs feel free to head over to one of ARCH's projects and spend an hour or two (or three). Honfleur Gallery and The Gallery at Vivid Solutions (1241 Good Hope Rd SE) are open Tuesday - Friday, 12pm - 5pm and Saturday, 11am - 5pm. The Anacostia Arts Center (1231 Good Hope Rd SE) is open Tuesday - Saturday, 11am - 7pm. All three spaces are free and open to the public. The Arts Center also has wi-fi, two new boutiques, and a wellness and fitness center. The HIVE and The HIVE 2.0 will be open as usual 24/7 for members.
So how does this shutdown effect me? Don't worry too much, I'm still working -- though not as much. The nonprofit I work for is still open for business (see above) but because of the shutdown and the interruption/delays in our funding we are working on a reduced schedule as we ride out the shutdown (however long that may be). If you are so inclined to make a tax deductible donation to our nonprofit email us at email@example.com.
So while I am going to miss being at work as often (and the pay that goes along with it) the good news is that I finally have some time to sprinkle more reSPIN magic on some new paying clients. :)
So if you (or someone you know) likes what I do and wants me to do it for you -- for a reasonable fee of course -- then drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, advertising is available on all of my projects: Congress Heights on the Rise, River East DC Blogs and Eat Shop Live Anacostia -- if nothing else I anticipate an increase in readership during the shutdown. :)
Hang in there folks, #SoutheastLove trumps #Shutdown any day of the week!
P.S. Cheer up -- the panda cam is still operating! :)
