Once again, Generation Obama-Washington DC (VA/DC/MD) and Democratic GAIN - Grassroots Action Institute & Network would like to invite you to join fellow sophisticated progressives of all ages to celebrate summer and Hill recess as well as meet one another at the great DC tradition of Jazz at the National Gallery of Art's Sculpture Garden! At this event GO will be officially launching our Career Networking Team that will provide members a support and information-sharing group for DC-area progressives looking for a new direction.

We also will raffle off some VIP passes to DC Improv!

Note:  Last time a flurry of miscommunication about what sounded like imminent severe thunderstorms caused us to pre-emptively move the event to Rocket Bar even though it never rained – we apologize for any inconvenience and will do a better job braving the weather this time!

  • This is a great visibility and networking opportunity so feel free to wear the shirt, sticker, button or hat of your favorite campaign or cause. It will also make it easier for us to find each other. Plus, bring an umbrella just in case!
  • Feel free to bring your own picnic or buy food/beverages (including their legendary sangria) at the café or inside/outside vendors.
  • We will be meeting with signs in the sculpture garden at 6pm and ONLY IF IT POURS we will go as a group to Bar Louie at 701 7th St NW @ Gallery Place.
