Following the cookout, starting around noon, there will be a cookout for participants at the Initiative's office, which is upstairs from Meridian Pint.
Sounds like a fun opportunity to help out, meet your neighbors and enjoy some grub. They plan to start holding them monthly, which is a great idea.
Here's more from them, and their Facebook invite. (The free drinks have already been claimed, which is great, at least 25 people have already signed up!)
We love our neighborhood and want to show our streets some love. That's why on Saturday, April 23rd from 10am to 12pm the Columbia Heights Initiative will host it's first Community Clean Up & Cookout!
Meet us at 10am at the Columbia Heights Initiative Office at 3400 11th St. NW. Suite 200. From there we will set out to our clean up location(s). We may have two designated clean up areas if we have enough volunteers.
We would love if you could bring your own tools to use or consider donating equipment so we can keep cleaning! We need: rakes, shovels, outdoor brooms, trash bags, latex gloves, work gloves, and yard waste bags.
Following the clean up meet us back at the office for a cookout. We'll provide hot dogs and chips. Feel free to bring something to share!

The first 25 people who sign up (using the link above) and participate will receive a coupon for a free drink at The Coupe!
This is the first of many more monthly clean ups and hangouts. Come and join in the good clean fun!
