ROSCOE ROCKS THIS SUNDAY
Nuclear free Takoma Park. Tacky Park. Tree city. Whatever you want to call it, it's an eclectic neighborhood full of characters, small shops and now, finally, a fine little bar called The Olive Lounge. Washington has its statues, but Takoma has its rooster. And it's a fun place to hang out -especially the first Sunday of October when the streets close down for a rather remarkable musical event- the Takoma Park Street Fest. Music will be happening all day on three separate stages, and many of DC ROCKS' favorite local bands will be there. It's a free for all in the best sense of the word. Wander around and you're sure to find something you like. (This writer will definitely be getting more exercise than usual trying to catch two or more acts at the same time.) Take a look at the schedule, and you will see what I mean.
Parking can be tight, but the Metro will deliver you just a few blocks away.
