Summer is almost here and we thought it would be a great idea to head to DC for the Jazz in The Garden Summer Series! The concert is free and all you need to pay for is your food and beverages. We plan to meet at the gate at 6:00 pm and hang out in the park until 8:30 where we will listen to good music, eat some good food, and have an awesome time! The park is wheelchair accessible and there will be plenty of space to move and groove.
