we are river east

Last thursday was the REEL (River East Emerging Leaders) meet and greet at the Honfleur Gallery. With wine, music, art, and a ton of people who want to make Ward 15 (7+8) a cool and progressive place to be, it was definitely a "this is why I moved to Anacostia" evening.


a whole lot of creativity went into the event, and it exuded exactly the hip factor that a lot of us are excited to see more of


the gallery was totally packed, and all around was a great sense of energy and optimism


local duo Omar & Duff added to the chill vibe ambiance


big thanks to Honfleur's creative director Briony Evans (at left), who has the gallery staged for interior designers looking for the perfect piece

the next REEL event will be on March 18 - be sure to join the facebook group for all the latest.

I have been waiting for this post since Thursday!!!! You take the best pics!!! I have to get a new camera ASAP!

You are so right - it looked so "hip". I kept thinking at the event that this is how the Meatpacking District in NY got super cool. :)

Linking to your post from my blog.

Thanks!
