Columbia Heights Christmas Tree lighting Dec. 1, plus charity happy hour after!

Our neighborhood's annual tree lighting is upon us -- it's Saturday, Dec. 1 at the Columbia Heights Civic Plaza (the triangle bordered by 14th, Park and Kenyon.) The event is sponsored by the District Church, Giant, local anti-poverty nonprofit Collaborate to Impact, plus Cava and The Coupe. It starts at 6:30 pm. Here's more about  from their Facebook page -- there will also be Christmas carols from local musicians and hot beverages. Sounds like fun.

And if you want to continue the holiday spirit afterwards, a number of local bars and restaurants are holding a charity happy hour afterwards! You can get tickets at the tree lighting, at participating spots, the Latin American Youth Center, or online from Collaborate to Impact. The event benefits the Homeless Playtime Project, the Latin American Youth Center, and the Parkview Kids Zone.
