Bloom Bars: Serving up Art not Booze...

Located in Washington DC in the middle of the Columbia Heights neighborhood is a great art space called Bloom Bars. This not-for-profit community space runs on the dedication of volunteers and the generous donations of community supporters. All sorts of classes are held in the upstairs of this renovated historic building including yoga, tap and capoeira. It is used as a community forum where folks get together to discuss topics from across the board. It is used as a movie screening venue and a live performance space. Art from local artists hangs on the walls. It's a wonderful space. It needs our help. Times are tough for all of us and that is no different for this gem of an art space. I played a show there last night and was warmly welcomed by the volunteers and audience. If you are in the DC area and are looking for a new venue to frequent, I would recommend that. There is a $10 suggested donation to attend shows and this fee supports both the artists and the venue. Check out www.bloombars.com for more info. They have links there to direct you to their twitter and facebook pages as well as a donation page. If you were wondering what to get me for Christmas, make a donation to Bloom Bars in my name :)
