Event Details

By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea! 
You and me, you and me, oh how happy we’ll be!

-From “For Me and My Gal,” Harold Atteridge / Harry Carroll, 1914

Escape the DC heat with a night at the beach alongside William Merritt Chase’s seaside images. Grab dinner at participating food trucks, taste the warm notes of summer with rum samplings from Cotton & Reed Distillery, and sway to the calypso sound of the Casio Steel Band. DC-based songwriter Peter Maybarduk and indie rock quintet Notaries Public perform original music and pianist Simon Kirabo Muyanja of Uganda performs seaside-themed jazz and popular standards within the courtyard.
