D.C. is RIDDLED with business owners, artists, entrepreneurs and humans who help make it the absolute best dang city to live and create in. Ever.

Okay, we may not be the capital of the entire world but we do know what we’re doing when it comes to supporting and growing our city. That’s where the 2017 Local First Awards come in. The awards, a Think Local First DC initiative, spotlights the most impactful local independent businesses, entrepreneurs, and artists in D.C. Maybe that’s you! Maybe that could be you! And because we know you love going out and supporting all things D.C. we’ve got a pair of FREE TICKETS to this event which all goes down Thursday November 9.

But wait, that’s not all! With this pair of FREE TICKETS (hi these are free) you will also get a 1 year membership to Think Local First, a non-profit advocate for local economy leaders that addresses economic, environmental, racial and social equity so everyone can enjoy shared progress in our rapidly changing city. Look at you! You’ll be the most D.C. person yet. To win all of this great stuff just tell us in the comments section below what makes you the ultimate D.C. resident, you know like 3 stars and 2 bars runs in your veins. I was born here and I tell people that CONSTANTLY even if I wasn’t asked. Best answer wins.

Did I tell you I was born in D.C.?
