Create a Temporary NoMa Park!

Park(ing) Day 2018 — which will turn curbside car spaces into temporary parks on Friday, September 21 — is rapidly approaching. The NoMa BID will sponsor four designs by neighborhood-based businesses and organizations ($500 each), and also handle all DDOT-related aspects of the event. We just need your creativity and vision, so be sure to check out the final page of the Park(ing) Day Guidelines for space requirements and limitations. If you have questions, please contact Lia Seremetis: Deadline for consideration: 5:00 p.m., Monday, August 6.


Heads Up, Red Line Riders

Starting this Saturday, July 21, Metro's Rhode Island Avenue and Brookland stations will be closed for 45 days, through September 3. There will be no Red Line service between the Fort Totten and NoMa-Gallaudet U stations. Red Line customers should transfer to Green or Yellow line trains between Fort Totten and Gallery Place to avoid the work zone. Metro will add capacity to the Green and Yellow lines to accommodate Red Line riders, including running some Yellow Line trains to/from Greenbelt.

For customers traveling to/from the Brookland or Rhode Island Avenue stations, free shuttle buses will provide alternate service for the Fort Totten, Brookland, Rhode Island Avenue, and NoMa-Gallaudet U stations. To enable better traffic flow for the increased number of shuttle buses during the track work, N Street between First and 2nd NE, and 2nd between N and Florida Avenue will temporarily convert to a one-way traffic pattern: east on N, north on 2nd.

NoMa's Community Survey Is On

Whether you're in NoMa because it's home, the location of your 9 to 5, or a casual destination, we want a better understanding of your experience. The results of the NoMa BID's Community Survey help us understand how the neighborhood is growing and what might make it even better. It takes just a few minutes to fill out, and if you include your email, you could win one of six $50 gift cards to Indigo or The Eleanor (winner's choice). This information will not be sold to third parties. Thanks for your participation!


#nomnomNoMa Update:
New Restaurant Edition

Not one but TWO new dining options have recently opened in NoMa. At the Hilton Garden Inn (1225 First St. NE), Lily and the Cactus chef Morou Ouattara — who also has Kora in Crystal City and is an Iron Chef TV show veteran — is serving up a fusion of West African and classic Southwest U.S. flavors. Meanwhile, The Eleanor, created by Bar Elena founder Adam Stein and the District's first vintage bowling establishment, is fully up and running, including brunch, at 100 Florida Ave. NE. Check out the extensive beer list, deliciously eclectic food options, and hit up the bowling lanes or pinball machines while you’re at it!

Summer Screen Continues Tonight

"There's no crying in baseball!" Join us tonight for a screening under the stars of A League of Their Own, the story of two sisters who join the first female professional baseball league and struggle to help it succeed amid their own growing rivalry. The movie will begin shortly after sunset (around 8:40 p.m.), but the Ball or Nothing and Peruvian Brothers food trucks will be on-site to satisfy your hunger from about 6:30 p.m. until about 9:00 p.m. Also, our friends from the 9:30 Club will be there raffling off two tickets to see Cake! And, as always, there's free bike parking courtesy of Two Wheel Valet. Can’t make it? Don’t worry—there are seven movies left this season! Next week: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
