The Atlas Performing Arts Center (1333 H St.) is hiring a Marketing and PR Manager and a Patron Services Manager, as well as seeking interns in production management, and technical productions.

The District Department of Transportation has begun accepting applications 2017 Visitor Parking Passes (VPP). Apply by Dec. 16 to get your pass by the start of 2017. A VPP will allow "residents' guests to park for more than two hours on Residential Permit Parking (RPP) zoned blocks. A VPP is only valid during the hours of RPP enforcement and in the same RPP zone and ANC boundary as the residence. The passes are not necessary on holidays or other times when parking restrictions are not subject to enforcement."
