Come Enjoy Shaw Open House, Fall 2018 Edition, 10/20/18!

 

One of Shaw Main Streets’ most popular neighborhood events returns Saturday, October 20, 2018: Fall Shaw Open House, from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Shaw Open House is a celebration of the neighborhood and invites the entire city to visit Shaw and learn about the unique bars, restaurants and places to live, work, shop, play and pray.

As part of Shaw Main Streets’ ongoing #LoveShaw campaign, Shaw Open House gives visitors every reason to #ShopinShaw and #DineInShaw.  A digital ‘passport’ ushers visitors from merchant to merchant for a #Shawesome afternoon of sampling, exploration and entertainment, culminating with a prize-filled close out party. At every business visited, attendees will have their digital passport validated, allowing the bearer to enter the prize drawings.

This installment of Shaw Open House will focus on the northern half of the Shaw Main Streets service area, north of Rhode Island Ave and between 6th and 11th Streets, NW.  Here you will find 30 of DC’s most beloved eateries, watering holes and retail locations (as of 10/19/18):
