Liberty, Bodies and Fire (Prevention)

The new farmer’s market on the grounds of Mount Vernon Square will be branded as the “Liberty Market“. This name is an homage to the old Northern Liberty Market that once occupied 5th & K. [DCMetrocentric, MVTCID]

During National Fire Prevention Week (October 4-10), Logan Hardware, Glover Park Hardware, Tenleytown Ace Hardware and 5th Street Ace Hardware are encouraging consumers to keep their smoke alarms in good working order by giving away free 9-volt alkaline batteries in exchange for old batteries.

This past weekend, as part of the Velocity DC Dance Festival, local dancers took to the streets of Penn Quarter for Bodies in Urban Spaces. Directed by Austrian choreographer Willi Dorner, Bodies in Urban Space is a moving trail through public space as dancers entertain the crowds with temporary human sculptures.[Washington Post]
