On Friday, August 31, join neighbors at Local 16 (1602 U Street NW) to sample Blue Moon’s new brew, Caramel Apple Spiced Ale. And the best part? Proceeds will benefit arts programs at Shaw Middle School at 10th and U Streets NW.
Due to drastic budget cuts, many of the arts programs schools once had are now gone, and friends of Shaw Middle School are working to bring them back. The event runs from 6 until 9 pm; there is a $5 suggested donation.
What is a “Blue Moon,” you ask? It’s the second appearance of a full month in a calendar month — and tomorrow night is the last Blue Moon until 2015.
