Getting Up Guide: A farewell to summer at Jazz in the Garden

By Alex Baldinger

What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Friday:

Jazz in the Garden
Have you seen today's weather forecast? Suddenly, it feels like fall is just around the corner, and nowhere is that more apparent than the National Gallery of Art's Sculpture Garden. That's where the final Jazz in the Garden of the summer season is set to take place at 5 p.m. Jazz saxophonist Bruce Swaim provides the soundtrack, so pack your picnic basket and reminisce about the summer that was.

Double Dagger, Hume
The main problem that Comet Ping Pong faces in trying to establish itself as a nightlife hot spot is that it's the only option in that area of the city. To head to Comet is to commit yourself to a single location the entire evening. Good thing the show the restaurant-turned-late-night rock venue is hosting Friday is worth seeing in its entirety: Baltimore's masters of minimalist punk rock, Double Dagger, share a bill with D.C.'s Hume, which will be celebrating the release of its debut album, "Penumbra," which manages to be sharp, precise and sprawling in equal measures.

The Yards Park Grand Opening
Looking for a new pre- or post-game destination near Nationals Park? Beginning with tonight's game against the Florida Marlins, you can add the Yards Park, a new five-and-a-half acre park along the Anacostia River, to your repertoire. At the park's grand opening, which lasts through Sunday, and from 3:30 to 11 p.m. today, you'll find live music, trapeze artists, kid-friendly crafts, area food trucks and two beer gardens for adults all within a short walk of the baseball stadium's center field gate.

Jazz in the garden is really great. I attended it last friday. I joined IPG for attending various concerts, professional networking opportunities and diplomat events at various Embassies and foreign missions in Washington,DC.
