9th at M, Looking Northeast (see more)

It's a busy next few days, so here's a reminder of what's on tap. (Of course, you could just look at my Events Calendar, but....)
* Today (Thursday) is the "Transportation Day" events that are part of the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative's 10th anniversary celebration. Get thee down to 1301 M Street, SE (site of the offices for the 11th Street Bridges project) for the kick-off at 10 am with DDOT director Gabe Klein, and/or attend the open house until 2 pm, which includes bus tours of current AWI transportation projects (like, say, the 11th Street Bridges). Circulator buses will be shuttling to and from the Navy Yard Metro station.
If you're wanting to know more about the Anacostia Waterfront Initiative and what's been accomplished up to this point, here's a spiffy "10 Years of Progress" booklet with all sorts of details.
* Friday brings the start of the Yards Park Grand Opening Weekend, starting at 3:30 pm, along with a full slate of events all day Saturday and a few more on Sunday as well--here's the specifics on all the activities for all three days. (UPDATED with a new more detailed flyer showing all the events.)
* The Nats are at home against the Marlins, playing at the usual 7:05 pm Friday and 1:35 pm Sunday times, along with a somewhat rare 1:05 pm Saturday start. It's Fan Appreciation Month, with all sorts of promotions and offerings.
* Sunday, Sept. 12 is the Fourth Annual Youth River Sports Day put on by the Anacostia Community Boathouse, now at their new home just up river from the Sousa Bridge. It runs from 11 am to 3 pm, and is free and open to the public.
* ANC 6D returns from its summer recess on Monday, Sept. 13. The agenda hasn't been released yet, but rumored items include the grant the BID is applying for to beautify the New Jersey Avenue "entrance" to the neighborhood, along with what I hear might be a presentation on a possible renaming of the Navy Yard Metro station. While I haven't heard what the new name might be, I imagine that some variant of "Navy Yard / Nationals Park / Capitol Riverfront" will be on the table. Which means that my last chance to convince people to rename the neighborhood Near Capitol Ballpark River Yards is probably passing by.
* And on Tuesday there's some sort of election. Perhaps you've heard about it. But good heavens, get yourself to the polls and vote. You don't even have to wait until Tuesday to do it.

Fab weather for it all, except Sunday, but they're saying it's not a washout by any means.



DG says: (9/9/10 9:29 AM)
JD, have you heard anything about Opera in the Ballpark? Is it Friday night or Saturday night? I keep finding conflicting listings.



JD says: (9/9/10 9:35 AM)
It's Sunday Sept. 19 at 2 pm (which is why I didn't mention it above, since it's next weekend):

RE: New metro station name. Please, for the love of all that is good and holy, do NOT have a run-on name like "Navy Yard / Nationals Park / Capitol Riverfront". Just pick one and go with it. No other metro system in the world has these multiple-place-name station names. "Marble Arch" in London is not "North Mayfair / Hyde Park / Oxford Street". My vote: "Nationals Park".


DG says: (9/9/10 11:25 AM)
Thanks for letting me know, JD. I got my weekends mixed up!


Mark says: (9/9/10 1:27 PM)
DG - FYI - Opera in the Outfield was originally scheduled for Saturday night the 11th - they moved it at some point to next Sunday. BTW - if you are thinking about going, go - it's a fantastic event.

"No other metro system in the world has these multiple-place-name station names"

Uh, hello? Chicago? Sox/35th ring a bell?


JM says: (9/9/10 3:35 PM)
Were they thinking of changing the Metro station name or did you just comment on that out of the blue?


JM says: (9/9/10 3:36 PM)
Sorry, just saw the end of the post about the possible name change. Sorry about that.


Jay says: (9/9/10 3:56 PM)
I like Nationals Park too, but if the Nationals get a naming rights deal, then there might be confusion and they might have to change the signs.

Navy Yard/Ballpark would be better I guess.


MJM says: (9/9/10 4:35 PM)
If the BID is pushing this then my money is that they'll probably push "Navy Yard - Capitol Riverfront" then maybe they can use the BID property tax revenue from property owners to pay Metro to print new maps and signs.


jmauro says: (9/11/10 5:47 PM)
No. Keep it as the Navy Yard. The other names listed above are decidedly uncool.
