Stay In! And Hear the Stories Told on Business Story Day, Sunday, Feb 21 at 3:30 PM

 by Peggy Robin

Following a full week of intense debate on the listserv over whether to allow a big increase in residential density along Connecticut Avenue in Cleveland Park -- one thing emerged as a point of agreement: taht we want to do what we can to increase the viability of our neighborhood businesses. There may not have been any consensus about how to bring about that end, but it did seem to be something we all called a public good. 

With that in mind, I thought this week's highlighted event for the weekly events column was a good choice: It's Mayor Muriel Bowser's designation of Sunday, February 21, 2021 as "Business Story Day." 

You can listen to community business leaders telling stories of how they got started in business and how they made it work. (Good thing they haven't been asked to tell any stories about how it went getting zoning approval to open a new business in DC!)

Here's your official invitation from the Mayor:
