Local Briefing: INTERSECTIONS at the Atlas, Peeking at Sospeso, & Changes at TNA
The Atlas INTERSECTIONS Festival returns to the Atlas Performing Arts Center (1333 H St.) Feb. 24 through March 5. As in the past, this year's festival will feature a variety of shows in different genres and performance types. The Atlas has been tweeting out previews of some of those shows. Check the calendar and descriptions on the Festival website for full details. They are also running some ticket deals and discounts. As always, some performance are free, and there are some cool things geared towards families on the Festival's Family Fun Days.
District Cuisine snagged a sneak peek inside, and tried food from, Sospeso (1344 H St.), which should hopefully begin serving up tasty Mediterranean fare in early February.
The Trinidad Neighborhood Association announced that it will shift direction a bit. TNA's held regular public meetings for the past several years to help keep residents informed of local events, and to give those same residents a voice. But we've now reached a point that Trinidad has three Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners who hold regular Single Member District meetings, offering those same residents a new forum for obtaining information and sharing their concerns. In response to our current situation, TNA will now "focus more on being a conduit for community based grassroots project initiatives. That includes projects that range from community cleanups to history trails to little library projects, and social events like brunches, teas, tours, outings and happy hours."
