  • Race & Seek
    During Race & Seek, an extra phone battery in your pocket could easily be worth thousands of dollars. The urban scavenger hunt sends teams of 2?10 out into city streets in search of 14 clues, which they must capture via photo or video with their smart phones. The first-prize winners haul in some serious bounty: $500 and free entry into the Grand Championship, where $5,000 waits at the finish line. But a slew of physical and mental challenges stand in the way of that money. Harder and harder clues come in via text and email, and as participants decipher them, they must navigate the city largely on foot?no cars, bikes, taxis, or griffins are allowed?with the aid of GPS and a city map.

  • Be With Me Playseum
    There's a bustling, kid-friendly metropolis inside each Be With Me Playseum. The centers surround visitors in kid-sized "city shops", which offer areas to decorate cupcakes, play dress-up, or create art projects. Other hands-on activities aim to teach through imagination. A bakery, for example, doubles as a place to learn fractions, while a diner teaches good manners. Whether it's the grocery or the pint-sized version of Chinatown, one thing ties all of the different areas together: books. The playseum doubles as a children's used bookstore, and staffers place different tomes into the most appropriate area. Books on firefighters will likely be near the fire truck, while reference books on animals will be inside a pet store complete with real frogs, doves, and other animals ready to discuss the hidden themes of Curious George.

  • Capitol Hill Arts Workshop
    ArtSmash, Capitol Hill Arts Workshop’s annual gala, promises to present a lively evening of food, drinks, arts, and entertainment, with proceeds benefitting CHAW’s tuition assistance, outreach, and education programs. Admittance to the celebration gets gala-goers a potable philanthropic portion of delectable food, palate-pleasing wine and beer, and a signature cocktail. During the three-hour festivities, a spirited assortment of performers will entertain attendees, from a-capella collective Not What You Think to the casts of CHAWbaret and The Mikado. Take home work from local artists or the Capitol Hill Art League members in a silent auction, participate in invigorating dance lessons, or learn how to paint like the Renaissance masters, all skills and resources which can be later incorporated into lobbying for federally funded anarchist-hardcore day camps.

  • Discover DC Pedicab Tours
    After having 70% of her quadriceps removed because of a tumor, Shaady Fakhrai was indefinitely confined to a wheelchair. Though relearning to walk was the first step, her ultimate goal was to get back on her beloved bicycle. She dedicated herself to exceeding the expectations of her recovery, and regained enough leg strength to start riding. In fact, she was so grateful to be mobile again that she eventually found herself cycling up to 40 miles a day. She couldn?t even bear to tear herself away from her favorite pastime to go to work, so she gave up her teaching career and started a pedicab business. But, Shaady didn?t completely abandon her educator instinct. In fact, she guarantees that tourists and locals alike can learn up to 10 new things about DC during her tours. She and her team lead sightseeing outings that take visitors past the National Mall or the Tidal Basin, or they can pedal Washingtonians deep into the ?hood of their choice to introduce them to great bars, new restaurants, and the fire hydrants that know the best neighborhood gossip. Passengers can also embark on themed explorations with topics as varied as the Washington Wizards, the Lincoln assassination, and wine tasting.
