Day Trips

Saturday, October 26, from 10 a.m. to noon

Jazz and Prohibition collided in 1920s Washington, and one neighborhood saw it all. We will explore Shaw neighborhood, home to U Street and Washington’s “Black Broadway,” and visit historical and unusual sites that most Washingtonians never see. Led by author Garrett Peck, the walk will be capped by a prohibition-appropriate happy hour, of course.
