Our last Summer Flicks x CAN I KICK IT? screening featuring The Golden Child, despite it being cut short due to rain, was more than memorable. The story starts with this event being (or supposed to at least) a make-up for our screening of the same movie, which also got rained out on its original date!
Add to that that it rained earlier on Tues which begged the questioned, would we still be able to do it? We received a wave of inquiries via social media and email asking if we’d still be conducting the screening, especially with it being our last and The Golden Child being a favorite for a lot of people. Lo and behold, we ended up getting the green light from the DowntownDC BID and to our excitement we were greeted by over 200 eager attendees.
And in our effort to not disappoint, 2-Tone spun one of his best sets, DowntownDC BID surprised guests with free ice-cream, and everyone got a sample of the high impact Jiu Jitsu (martial arts) demonstration from Darcio Lira Jiu Jitsu. Thanks to our Jay Coleman for setting that up!
Thanks again to the DowntownDC BID for bringing us back for another run, props to Darcio Lira Jiu Jitsu for the demo, shouts to our cadre of media partners who helped spread the word about this year’s festivities, and special thanks to everyone who attended. We certainly hoped you enjoyed the events as much as we enjoyed giving them and we look forward to seeing everyone as we’re back home at Songbyrd DC for our monthly CAN I KICK IT? events. That being said, catch us there Tues. July 24th for the screening of Under Siege.
