Our Grand Opening Week July 22-27! Mark your calendars now!

We’ve actually been open since late April, but we haven’t had an official grand opening ceremony yet.

So, since we’ve been waiting a while to get around to it, why not make it a full blown week? Jens Ohlig from C4 and Johannes Grenzfurthner from Monochrom and the Metalab will be on hand to help us celebrate.

Here’s the list of events so far.:

  • Saturday, July 26: Paying homage to Grace Hopper.  Come join us for Lunch in Columbia Heights and an afternoon outing to Arlington National Cemetry to pay tribute to “Amazing Grace”.  (Meet at HacDC at Noon).  Then join us back at HacDC as we prepare for our Sunday opening!
  • Sunday, July 27: OUR OFFICIAL GRAND OPENING CEREMONY! Join us for our official grand opening ceremony!  At 8:00, join us as our members receive their Black Lab Coats.  Our “commencement” address will be given by Jens Ohlig, one of the key figures behind the Global Hackerspace Movement.  Lots of projects and other things shall be on display throughout the day.  (HacDC opens at 3:00 PM, Ceremony at 8:00 PM with reception to follow)
