It’s another exhausting run of events for the next few days. Make sure the Metro card is filled up! The following list is indebted to Bill Kartalopoulous, who gave us permission to adapt his own email listings. The whole list is in the jump. Saturday is particularly rough, but we know we’ll be hitting the Top Shelf 10th Anniversary party…that’s the one “must do” on the list!
