Free Art Gallery Tour Tonight

DC's Cultural Development Corporation's "3rd 3rsday" program - a free artist-guided tour of art galleries in the 7th street arts district - is tonight at 6:30 pm. The tour departs from the Goethe-Institut (at 812 7th St. NW). The tour also includes a quick trip to Starbuck's, but not for the frappuchinos they've been advertising all around town:

STARBUCKS (800 7th) — Abena Disroe hosts 3rd 3rsday PoetryFest featuring special guest FRENCHIE, who recently appeared on HBO's Def Poetry Jam. Frenchie, a published poet, will discuss "The Business of Poetry." Catch Hip Hop Poetry Fest poets Wednesday, July 14th, 12:00 midnight on 96.3 WHUR’s SPOKEN WORD at Joe’s Place, the city’s number one poetry program, hosted by Joe Gorham. 3rd 3rsday PoetryFest would like to invite area poets who are interested in performing to call 202.328.3564 or send email to deshopoetry at aol.com.

This stop also sounded interesting:
