An exploration of things to do in Arlington

Just missed the cut ... but worth knowing about

OK, when I started this blog, I wanted to tell you about things that people (mostly me) actually do in Arlington and what it was like - was it fun? boring? the best day of my life?

There have been times when I've been tempted to tell you about something that I think is worth doing, rather than something I did. So far, I've refrained ... until now.

I just finished putting together the draft for the next What's Up Arlington! newsletter, and there are two things I really, really wanted to put in there, but just didn't have the space. So, with many apologies for straying from the mission of this blog, here they are:

Cross-Cultural Cinema has never disappointed me, and this looks like another good one:
Thursday, Oct 5, 6:30-8:30 PM, Central Library.Cross Cultural Film Series:Justice for My People: Dr. Hector P. Garcia Story.This film traces the rise of the Mexican American civil rights movement through the ideals, choices and actions of Dr. Hector P. Garcia.

This event seems a little quirky, but sounds fun, and super bonus - it supports a good cause:
Scavenger Hunt and Wine Tasting
Part I: Scavenger Hunt – teams of 2-4 individuals in an Arlington neighborhood scavenger hunt. The hunt begins the Greenbrier Learning Center, 5401 S. 7th Rd, and ends at the Arlington Arts Center, 3550 Wilson Boulevard. 2:30 PM – 5:00 PM. $15

Part II: International Wine Tasting and Children’s Art’s AuctionEnjoy wine seminars, lite fare and a children’s art auction at the Arlington Arts Center. 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM. $25 separately or $35 with scavenger hunt registration.

To register, e-mail or call 703-379-6488. All proceeds benefit the Greenbrier Learning Center.

I hope you'll forgive this slightly off target post, and maybe you'll check out one of these fun events.

See you out!
