Winter's on the Way

Today marks the opening of the National Gallery of Art's skating rink and just two weeks until the Downtown Holiday Market opens.  The market will return to F St (between 7th and 9th) for its seventh straight year - and this year it will be open for a bit longer than usual.  You'll have 22 days (December 2nd to December 23rd, from noon to 8PM) to get all of your holiday shopping in.  

You can check out all of the exhibitors here - 175 regional artisans in total.  Some exhibitors will be there all four weeks (we've heard from local photographer Joe Shymanski that he'll be one), where others will just pop in for a few days, so it's worth heading back multiple times in December to see what's new.  

The Market also provides nearly continuing entertainment for its shoppers - at least two performers will be on stage per day, including Grammy-nominated Christylez Bacon, who recently gave a performance at TEDx Penn Quarter
