Paint Jam Saturday
This weekend, 55 artists will transform an asphalt lot into the largest piece of outdoor art in Washington, D.C. The public is invited to watch the spectacular transformation take place at a Paint Jam event at NoMa Junction @ Storey Park (1005 First Street, NE) on Saturday, June 6, from 11 AM - 8 PM. 

The NoMa BID is partnering with hip-hop nonprofit Words, Beats & Life to produce the art. The artists won't just cover the walls with art, they will enliven more than an acre on the ground. Master Artists Pose 2 & Cita “CheLove” Sadeli will create two significant murals inspired by the NoMa neighborhood. 53 additional artists from DC, MD, VA, PA, NJ and NY will add to the canvas with a series of smaller murals. 

Words, Beats & Life anticipates using 200 gallons of paint to create the murals, including 500 cans of spray paint. Join us on Saturday to watch that paint come to life.
NoMa WiFi Expansion

NoMa’s free outdoor WiFi network has been in operation for over a year and hosted 15,000+ unique users on the system, and an average of 150 users per day. In May 2015, the NoMa BID expanded the WiFi network to include NoMa Junction @ Storey Park (where NoMa Summer Screen is held), H Street, NW between North Capitol and First Streets, and further along North Capitol Street. This expansion increases NoMa's WiFi coverage to 20 blocks, with 23 access points.

NoMa: Luxury Living for Pets and People
Many luxury apartment buildings don't just offer high-end amenities for their human residents, but pamper their furry four-legged inhabitants. Bisnow recently published a list of the top six most luxurious pet friendly apartments, and highlighted two NoMa buildings, 2 M Street and Camden NoMa. With amenities ranging from a pet spa, play area, private dog park, grooming station, and yappy hours, it's no wonder these two buildings are on the forefront of ensuring that all residents have a dog-on good time. Click here for more information about all the apartments in NoMa.
Drink Beer, Play Games at Wunder Garten

The 300-seat venue is styled as a Bavarian beer garden and is a place neighbors and friends can meet, socialize, or take a free outdoor education class with REI.

The drink menu will feature Bavarian, Austrian, and German beers. Food will be provided by a rotating selection of the region’s most popular food trucks. Wunder Garten is open 4-10 PM Monday - Friday and 12-10 PM Saturday and Sunday.
