Contact Bernie and let him know you're coming.
Tired of real politics and want to have some fun with laughing at it. Capitol Steps have been doing just that since 1981. They will be presenting a free show at Mason District Park, in Annandale. With all the odd political things happening these days, I am sure this show will be the best!
We cannot reserve seats, so try to be there by 5:30. We will try to save some seats inside the ampitheater, on the right side near the back, but we can’t reserve them, so if there are none remaining when you come, come on in anyway. Come laugh with us.
In case the weather looks bad, call their hotline at 703-324-7469. For more information, visit their web site, www.capsteps.com. or contact Bernie Joiner at email@example.com, or 703-969-2881
Hey, when is the SCWDC Ski Fest this year? What, no Ski Fest? Well, sorta yes, sorta no. Due to expense and other circumstances, the Ski Fest has had its run and is retired, at least for now. What we plan to have in place of the Ski Fest is a members’ party to celebrate the upcoming ski season, the Back to the Slopes Party.
Like at the Ski Fest, you can seek out your 2019 SCWDC trip leaders to discuss their trip, see ski trip displays, and visit with ski industry friends' displays/ exhibits. Mingle with your ski trip buddies. Like the Ski Fest, there will be music, and raffle prizes. Unlike the Ski Fest, the Back to the Slopes Party will be outside at a Biergarten, with picnic tables, and beverage/food tokens for members and guests. There is inside space but our party will be outside.
Tysons Biergarten offers 140+ types of beer, 50+ Whiskey/Bourbon/Scotch, three floors, a 10,000 sq. ft. outdoor patio (with heaters), music, outdoor games, and much more! Register and purchase your 2-for-1 food/beverage chips and enjoy.
Yum! Sample of available menu items. Each order includes 2 items of choice plus 2 sides, with and without bread. Menu includes vegetarian options.
We are arranging with our ski industry friends to exhibit their products and services like they would at a ski resort Ski Demo Day, to generate that ski season vibe. All the details have not been worked out yet but be prepared to be surprised at this fun members’ event.
Of course, invite friends and family to check out this party. They can register and purchase discounted 2-for-1 food and beverage chips. Put Sunday, September 16, on your calendar.
