BEN DROZ HAD A BUSY COUPLE OF DAYS. Here it is in (brief words and) photos.
The DC Scoop packed the lot at Union Market, and there were lines everywhere for free and delicious ice cream. There were lots of great ice creams, but I would have to go with the Hemp Gelato as promoted by little Mr. Hempseed.
Scoutmob helped host a DC Beer Week event at Smith Commons, where you got a free beer if you had a mustache and/or downloaded the iphone app. It’s not actually that hard to drink with a mustache!
+ more BEER WEEK: Local Brewries DC Brau and 3 Star were featured in this DC Beer Week event. In an exciting and educational experience, the guys from 3 Star brewery took a sledge hammer to a steel cask to release the sweet, naturally carbonated beer.
Then, we went to a Playboy party. It was pretty lame, supposedly I missed a crazy runway photoshoot. Anyways, we walked to the IMF building downtown, found a homeless person, and interviewed her for a documentary. She showed us artwork that she donated to a local homeless shelter. It was sad but also uplifting. The woman was very positive and volunteers with organizations that support the homeless community. After this, we went out and partied.
