Shaw Open House, September 14, 2013

Shaw Main Streets is pleased to present the 2013 Shaw Open House event on Saturday, September 14, 2013 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

Shaw Open House events, which have been held since 2005, showcase Shaw businesses and what they have to offer neighborhood residents and visitors alike.

The event is a free self-guided tour in which attendees walk Shaw’s main streets and visit participating establishments to sample the goods and services each offers.  Every visitor is given a free Shaw Open House passport that is stamped at every stop. The passports will entitle the bearer to a free sample and special discounts.  Completed passports will be entered in a drawing for prizes from each participating business.

See what’s new in Shaw.  Try a coffee flavor (at La Colombe, for the first time in DC) or style of beer (several DC exclusives on tap at Dacha Beer Garden) you haven’t tasted before.  Sample cuisines from around the world (like Burmese at Manadalay).  Try a free mini Pilates class (at Reformation Fitness).  Hang out on one of Shaw’s many roof decks (like 1905 Restaurant). Use your passport to create your itinerary.

Just pick up a free event passport at any participating location on the day of the event, and visit as many businesses as you want. Then join us for the closing drawing at 5:15 PM at Baby Wale, 1124 9th Street, NW, and find out if you’ve won a prize.  You must be present to win.

So save the date.  Tell your friends. Follow @shawmainstreets on Twitter for updates on participating businesses.  Then hit the streets on September 14th when Shaw’s businesses throw open their doors to welcome YOU!
