Free Wine and Cheese!
Okay, now that I've got your attention, keep reading below for details regarding LLLer Dahlia Lithwick's gig at the TJ Center this Friday. (They ask you to reserve so they can have sufficient wine and cheese on hand. You know I'll be there!)
If you've never been to an event at the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression, you're missing out. The Center, along with the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection, is housed in a lovely old mansion. The open house is traditionally held in the spacious back yard with a view that unfurls all the way to the Blue Ridge. You'll find smart people (who are passionate about the Constitution), stimulating talk, art like you may never have seen, plus those tasty refreshments!
