Recap: Night at The Point in Support of Living Classrooms

30 Oct

I was recently invited by Living Classrooms to attend their annual fundraiser, Night at The Point, which benefits the Foundation’s work of educating disadvantaged youth in the Baltimore-Washington region.

It was a lovely autumn evening at Buzzard Point as you could see the ongoing construction of Audi Stadium, the future home of DC United, from James Creek Marina.

Not only did the event highlight over 30 local food and drink vendors, but also featured an evening of entertainment from the legendary Wailers to the Queen Beez, Living Classroom’s own program that gives young girls a platform to sing and dance under female mentorship.

Local breweries provided libations throughout the night as Bluejacket, Atlas Brew Works, and District Chophouse were slinging suds under the stars.

Nearby seafood venues The Salt Line and Whaley’s provided New England clam chowder bread bowls and catfish rillettes, respectively.

Local favorites TaKorean and Cava were also in the house repping their trademark dishes while Ice Cream Jubilee was busy scooping banana bourbon caramel ice cream to the nearly 800 in attendance.

My favorite item of the night was the deep-fried crab balls from the Capital Crab Co. food truck, and given how long the queue was, it’s safe to say it was a crowd favorite.

The Queen Beez got things started with an entertaining series of dances before The Wailers took the stage and got the crowd singing along to all of the classics such as  “Buffalo Soldier” and “Could You Be Loved”.

Night at The Point was a great event for an even better cause and I would definitely recommend attending next year. I was glad I could be a part of it and cannot thank Living Classrooms enough for having me.
