So it’s no wonder that most of us probably didn’t receive invites to the Burleith Annual Summer Picnic in the Park, which takes place this Saturday, June 11, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Green Lot on Whitehaven Parkway and 37th Street. The picnic looks like loads of fun: Activities on the website include a nature walk (you know, through all the wilderness there is out there on R Street) and the mysteriously labeled “new and fun kids’ activities.”
But get this—nobody ever said this was an invite-only picnic. So we here at Vox are encouraging any and every one of our dear, loyal readers who are still in D.C. (particularly those of you who are both students and Burleith residents), to turn this picnic into a Georgetown affair. Show up, introduce yourselves to Lenore Rubino, snap a picture with resident photographer Stephen Brown, and maybe you’ll even get a chance to throw this guy’s lawn sign on the barbecue.
Basically, make Burleithers realize just how bored they’d be without us in their communities to complain about.
