Where we talk about stuff (happening in and around D.C.) we didn’t write about but is still something you may care to get all riled about and comment on. So, without further ado – today, in other D.C. media sources:

  • Well HAPPY BIRTHDAY, D.C.! You’re looking great for your age (210 years as the capital of the United States, but who’s counting?) (via DCist)
    (DCist)
  • Metro watchers can now keep a closer eye on daily issues with WMATA’s new Metrorail Service Reports. (via TBD)
  • Ever wonder what it takes to be an NBA writer? Here’s a Q&A with the bloggers who cover the Wizards. (via We Love DC)
  • A Virginia family recently took in two abandoned pet kittens, which were actually baby foxes. Very tricky, nature. (via FortHuntPatch, via HuffPost DC)

  • Looks like somebody’s been doing their homework/watching Bored to Death–an amateur sleuth just caught a theft from the National Archives on Ebay. (via HuffPost DC)
  • And finally, your #HomePorn of the day, Washington’s 50 most expensive homes. (via Washingtonian)

Geek Night Comedy @ DC Improv Lounge
$17
Geek Night Comedy is a stand-up comedy show created and run by geeks, for geeks. It includes a unique hybrid of both standup and improv. In its 5-year history, the group has run successful shows at the Virginia Beach & Richmond Funny Bones, here at the D.C. Improv, the Orlando Improv, and Awesome Con, their partners in this year's event! Past shows have received news coverage from local TV stations, as well as print coverage in The Virginian-Pilot, Inside Business and Sirius-XM's wildly popular "Monsters in the Morning." Charity is important to the Geek's Night, and their productions have raised thousands for ALS-TDI, the leading research group in the fight against ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), and will be doing so once again here at the DC Improv by giving away FREE passes to Awesome Con, along with other great items and collectables from local video game & comic book shops via our $1.00 raffle! A portion of door sales will also benefit this awesome non-profit.
