  • Saturday, September 25: In all this talk about blacks, whites, gentrification, etc., etc., we seemed to have forgotten that Latinos live in DC too. Whoops. Here's an event that celebrate Latinos: Fiesta DC. The Fiesta is this Saturday IN Mount Pleasant, starts at 11AM and features a parade, a children festival, music and food. [Fiesta DC]
  • Saturday, September 25: Obama may not love books right now, but he and his very literate wife are hosting the National Book Festival on Saturday. Jonathan Safran Foer, Jonathan Franzen, and former first lady Laura Bush who invented the Festival becasue she felt bad for not reading to her children (maybe? Probably.) will all be speaking. [2010 National Book Festival]
  • Saturday, September 25 through Sunday, October 3: "Something You Did," the new play at Theater J reminds us there  some liberals who never grow out of their causes and others who turn neocon and start stripping people (mostly Muslims) of their rights, for fun! And becasue liberals and neocons are so much fun to watch, a discount for you dear reader:  enter the code "WONKETTE" and get $15 off a ticket to any performance of the show. [Theater J]
  • IHOP: About half the city will be gainfully unemployed after the Midterms, but why, when there's work at IHOP: The restaurant is opening in Columbia Heights on November 16 (!) and is currently accepting applications. [Prince of Petworth]
  • Food Trucks: DO NOT FORGET TO VOTE for your favorite truck so that you can eat from it at the extra special food-truck extravaganza happening on October 7 and 8 at the Old Washington Convention Center. [Curbside Cook-off]
