Preview: Start Up Market @ HR57
BYT Staff | Nov 29, 2012 | 11:30AM |

This Saturday, December 1 Think Local First DC and NURISH will host their first StartUP Market at HR57 (Update: not at the Anacostia Metro stop as previously mentioned. Also disregard location in the flyer below). The market will be a cool way to showcase local made-in-DC producers of retail and food items. Just like the StartUP Kitchen model, costumers will not only be able to shop but they will sample goods and give feedback. What a fun way to be a part of growing DC’s local entrepreneur.

O'Donnell (JFOD) is currently a 'Political Correspondent' on the comedy news television show 'Redacted Tonight w/ Lee Camp' on RT America. According to the Comedy Central Insider, "John F. O'Donnell is one of the more explosive comics in New York City. On stage, he's like a tightly capped liter of soda filled with lit fireworks." John has been featured in The New York Times, The LA Times and The Huffington Post, as well as being one of Comedy Central's Fresh Faces of Comedy. Most recently, JFOD has been given a Congressional Press Credential and will be covering the Presidential Debates on location for 'Redacted Tonight,' which, if you know him, seems like a terrible breach of security. This very special stand up event will be directed by the brilliant composer/producer/filmmaker and founding member of Fugazi, Brendan Canty.
