Goonies Never Say Die

They do say problematic things like "first you gotta do the truffle shuffle," but it was the '80s. People had perms and were doing weird stuff. Join us Tuesday, August 2 at Georgetown Watefront Park (K & Potomac St NW) for The Goonies - the first movie of our 2022 Georgetown Sunset Cinema series. Films start at sunset – around 8:30/8:45 pm – but arrive early to grab something to eat, get the best seating, and play lawn games. Bozzelli’s is offering 10% off from 5 pm - 9 pm with mention of Sunset Cinema, Chaia is doing 15% off orders with code PICNIC or $20 picnic bags with a taco trio, drink and cookie, Mr. Smith’s of Georgetown has take-out trays that feed 4-6 people, and Pizzeria Paradiso is featuring 15% off pizzas and paninis with mention of Sunset Cinema. If you need something cute to carry your food, get 10% off at SCOUT Bags with code CINEMA. Movies include closed captioning, and accessible restrooms are available. Check out the 2022 movie line-up here!

My Colors are Blush and Bashful

We're required (by our inner compass) to make that Steel Magnolias reference at least once a year. Digital-first beauty company Glossier is opening a new store in Georgetown tomorrow at 3065 M St NW. Founded in 2014, Glossier's mission is to create the products customers say they wish existed. The new, immersive location is inspired by the Jet Age and all things aviation, according to the company, and will feature retro-inspired arrivals and departures signs, floor lighting styled like an airport runway, and seating modeled after airplane wings. The store will also include Glossier's famous selfie room. Stop by and sample Glossier's skincare, fragrance, makeup, and body care products, and speak with on-site product experts. New to the Georgetown location, customers can also buy a Glossier luggage tag with a key ring that has your own Glossier Wings; 5% of sales will be donated to Build Metro DC, an organization that works with youth to build career success and opportunity.

People Suspiciously Happy While Exercising

Freshman year of college, someone came up to me after biology and asked why I never smiled in class. Umm...because it's biology. Whether you're joyfully grinning your way through a group exercise class (and therefore completely unrelatable to me) or struggling to get through it, CorePower Yoga (1055 Thomas Jefferson St NW) has an amazing summer sale for all types. Through July 31, new All Access members can get their first month for $59 - a membership that typically costs $185. We're bad at math, but that's much cheaper. With the All Access membership, you'll get unlimited classes at any studio - including the Georgetown location, unlimited access to live and on-demand classes, priority in-studio booking, 15% off in-studio retail purchases, access to studio events, no long-term contract, and the ability to freeze or cancel your membership. Current Georgetown classes include candlelight yoga, yoga sculpt, and CorePower Yoga 2.

Will Walk for Cupcakes

Deeply motivated by food. Join Georgetown resident and tour guide Dwane Starlin on Sunday, July 31 from 10 am - 12 pm for a walking tour of Georgetown’s murals and public art. Learn the stories behind many of the murals - from a look back at life in the late 19th century, to one of JFK’s most famous speeches, and the most recognized ‘big bike’ in DC. After seeing all of the most Instagrammable spots the neighborhood has to offer, end your tour with a sweet treat from Georgetown Cupcake. The tour is accessible, and begins at the corner of Wisconsin Ave and Reservoir Road NW. Get your tickets here! If you can't make it that day, check out our murals and public art online guide.

Man Does, in Fact, Have a Head

This feels kind of like when a mom has to make her own birthday cake. Congratulations to Fabio Ripoli, who is celebrating 10 years as the owner of Ultra Violet Flowers at 1218 31st St NW. He took over the business in 2012, just a decade after arriving in the U.S. from Peru. Fabio began his career as a delivery driver - eventually moving up to positions processing flowers, before experimenting with flower design and pursuing his dream of owning a business. Today, Ultra Violet is known for its stunning arrangements, and specializes in weekly corporate orders, private events, and weddings. Fabio says he is dedicated to helping and hiring other immigrants who are building a new life in DC, and giving them opportunities within his floral business. Stop by to say hello, and pick up an arrangement. In other anniversary news, a big congratulations to 1789 and The Tombs - Georgetown restaurants that were honored with 2022 Honorary Milestone RAMMY Awards for 60 years of serving DC locals and visitors. Six decades in business is an amazing feat!
