Lighting Ceremony Tonight!

Come one, come all to the lighting ceremony for the restored Anacostia sign at MLK and Good Hope.

Friday, November 7, 2008 at 6:30 P.M.
Corner of MLK and Good Hope, with a reception at Anacostia Gateway and a Cephas & Wiggins concert ($20) at the Honfleur Gallery at 7:30 (all on the same block).
from the MSA press release - Main Street Anacostia was able to have the new sign built and installed with a storefront improvement grant from the Office of the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development's Neighborhood Investment Funds. DC's own Gelberg Signs built the new sign.

The initial plan was to have the original sign refurbished, however the old sign was in such disrepair that it crumbled during transport.

"This is truly a great day in Anacostia. It's a real symbol that we are building a vibrant and exciting business corridor," says Main Street Anacostia Board Chair Max Salas.
See you there!

The concert was great! The HonFleur turned into Southern Saloon somewhere in Tennessee. Free wine, beer and later someone brought over catered food from the Fireside Cafe. Great evening and the website says there will be more concerts to follow.

I wouldn't have known if you didn't post it up! I wanted to get out but not trek over to NW, a nice alternative for once.
