Crawling to the pub to support the Folkfest

Pub crawlers at Every Day Gourmet

Takoma Park Folk Festival afficionados did their civic duty and indulged themselves for the sake of the Folk Festival at the June 11 Takoma Park Pub Crawl. Live music awaited them at three great local venues — Olive Lounge, EveryDay Gourmet, and Roscoe’s. Proceeds will benefit the all-day feast of music Sunday, September 11, at the Takoma Park Middle School.

Julie Wiatt moved to Takoma Park with husband “Coach G” Weinstein and son Zak during cicada season May 1987. They (Julie, G and Zak, not the cicadas) were part of a migratory pattern from an Adams Morgan group house. Before coming to this area she was a wanderer, taking photos in St Croix, working on a community newspaper in East Boston, tracking bats in Panama, studying biology and art in New York City. Julie loves the Voice, considering it a wonderful way to know and celebrate Takoma Park and Silver Spring.
