Spring into Bocce

Spring into Bocce

If you like specials on quality beers; an excuse to make endless ball jokes; or building a social network after-hours, then DC Bocce is perfect for you.

This spring you can enjoy the nice weather and play bocce at various locations in DC/VA/MD: Arlington, Bethesda, Capitol Hill, Crystal City, Columbia Heights Adams Morgan, or Dupont.

The Season runs for eight weeks including a play-off tournament, two end-of-season events, contests, giveaways, and food & drink specials after each night's match.

Bocce is a great game that is enjoyed by players of all ages and abilities, and DC Bocce is a league that is well organized and easy to make friends in.

Visit DCBocce.com to register for the season, which begins the week of April 18th, and to find out more information about the League.

Capital Bikeshare Launches New 5-Day Membership

Capital Bikeshare Launches New 5-Day Membership

From DDOT:

(Washington, D.C.) In anticipation of the hundreds of thousands of visitors expected at this year’s National Cherry Blossom Festival, and with tourist season right around the corner, Capital Bikeshare has introduced a new 5-day membership option. The new 5-day membership, priced at $15, is geared specifically towards visitors to the nation’s capital and offers significant savings over the purchase of five individual day memberships priced at $5 a day. The membership is available for purchase at all Capital Bikeshare stations. Even before the festival kicks off, Capital Bikeshare has reached an exciting milestone: Tuesday night a member logged the 250,000th Bikeshare trip, just six months after the program’s launch in September 2010.
