Man Versus Machine in a Race Against the Streetcar this Saturday
It's time again for the running of the streetcar. It's a battle of man versus machine as runners race against the metal Goliath from its eastern terminus to 3rd & H Street NE. Runners (and their adoring fans) should meet at Driftwood Kitchen (401 H Street) in time for a 3 pm sharp check-in (with courtesy bag check). Following check-in and announcements the runners (and fans) will board the streetcar and ride to the end of the line. The total course is 1.92 miles from the Oklahoma Avenue stop by back to 3rd. Spectators can watch the race's progress from on board the streetcar.
Driftwood Kitchen will host a post-race gathering complete with streetcar themed cocktails. Perhaps you'd like to try a Sideswiped, a Streetcar on Fire, or an I Should Have Rum There?
